... without the perfect cast behind [Tambor, Light, Landecker, Duplass, and Hoffmann], the show may never have been as successful.

What a joy and a relief it is to be drawn into a mystery-the mystery of character, the mystery of gender, the mystery of family love-that is so far beyond the provenance and the expertise of the crime-scene squad and the forensic pathologists.

The New York Review of Books

The show is a surprisingly funny dark comedy, and the writing, with its many jabs at our gluten-free culture, is sharp and insightful.

There weren't many belly laughs on offer but the dialogue was sharp as a whip and totally contemporary.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

The awards were deserved. Transparent is magnificent. Daring, quietly searing, funny and profoundly poignant, it is social-observation storytelling at its most incandescent.
