Over the Christmas break, I had the chance to finally watch the show I’ve been meaning to watch since it was released, Transparent. A number of publications have named it the best new series of the year so it was a perfect time for me to sit down and watch the entire season. The story, as it unfolds through the course of ten 30 minute episodes, is the story of the Pfefferman clan and how they deal with the patriarch’s late-in-life transition to female.
There’s over two dozen new shows premiering this fall, not counting new and returning shows on cable and Amazon/Hulu/Netflix. That’s a ridiculous amount, and many won’t even make it till the end of the season. Some look really, really good (Gotham) and some are already circling the dreaded hiatus designation (Red Band Society, The Mysteries of Laura). That’s all fine and good, but which shows am I the most excited about? Glad you asked!
