I discovered Amazon's new show Transparent a few weeks before it won its well deserved Golden Globe Award for Best Television series. I watched all 10 episodes in a 2-night binge, unable to stop, sucked into the outrageous characters, organic storylines and über-real emotions.
The show single-handedly restored my faith in unconventional storytelling and a less polished approach to TV production. Because, seriously, no real human survives a car crash with perfectly parted hair or wakes up in full, unsmudged make-up. And all of the show's characters are experiencing their own personal "car crashs", exposing the darker and more human sides of our species. I really can't wait for the second season to rob me of another few nights of sleep.
