The Pfeffermans take off on a spiritual and political journey as they dig deep into their family's history. Maura heads to Israel to speak at a conference and makes a startling discovery. Before long the rest of the family joins her for an explosive adventure. Adrift in the desert, each member of the family ultimately set off on their own paths to find acceptance, love, and truth.
Transparent is still capable of telling stories and going to emotional places that no other series can, but the older it gets, the harder it becomes to avoid repeating itself, even in a season that largely takes place halfway around the world.
Transparent succeeds most of the time. The cast - led by Tambor - are terrific as usual. This year there are some rich, funny and moving moments, and the series continues to take chances other shows wouldn't dare.
