Transparent season 2 was one of the most beautiful pieces of media I’ve ever seen. I ended several episodes with tears streaming down my face. With 10 episodes of 30 minutes each it’s only about 5 hours long, but I stretched it out as long as I could: three days.
The second season of Transparent moves forward from where the first left off, but soon begins to delve in an entirely different direction. Transparent begins exploring a previous generation of the family that left Germany during the holocaust, accounting for many of my tears and even more of my appreciation.
There’s also a lot of dancing.
Transparent season two also contains several discussions about inclusivity, feminist intersectionality, and the Indigo Girls.
I finished watching Transparent the other day. Since then the theme song has played over in my head giving me an instant feeling of calm, reflection and a twinge of heartbreak for the legacy that is humanity.
