Just watched the first episode. It's great.

^From that:

Quote :
"Transparent is a drama/comedy series that could, in theory, make the Emmy nominations next year in either of those categories. It's that good. Oh, and one other thing about Transparent impressed me, but only long after I watched the episodes. It was a few days later when it finally hit me that the show's title was a world-class pun. In Transparent, Tambor stars as a ... trans-parent."

Recognized all the main characters from other shows - Portlandia (Carrie Brownstein), Girls (Gaby Hoffmann), The Office (Melora Hardin). Jeffrey Tambor's been in a bunch of stuff as well.

Looking forward to finish the episodes. Already have Amazon Prime as well.

Better than House Of Cards?

Different but in the long run probably not. It's also a 30 min dark comedy compared to a hour long political drama.

It's certainly interesting and has some very funny scenes. A bit slow for my taste, but I'll keep an eye on it.

After going through all of season 1, I actually like this show a lot. Certainly meets the description of a dark comedy. Can take you from laughing to nearly crying pretty quickly. Even though this is the gayest thing I've ever watched, I'm looking forward to Season 2.

I watched the pilot way back during Amazon's pilot season.

It wasn't very funny. Shows shouldn't just automatically label themselves comedy if they are thirty minutes.

Yeah it's pretty funny. 91% on metacritic is rather impressive. Another good review:
