Spoiler warning

Another week, another disastrous celebration for the Pfeffermans. This time at Josh and Raquels pool party as Tammy causes drunken chaos and Maura and Shelleys new relationship is revealed.

It’s a great episode, with heart, some comedy, and a lot of messed up people. Ali is still struggling with intense issues as she reconnects with her best friend Syd, whilst Josh and Raquel consider the appearance of Joshs son Colton.

There’s some lovely direction, tender and beautiful music and a particularly awkward scene, but not because of its content, but because of the emotional justification of it for one character.

At 30 minutes each, these episodes are a breeze to get through, and I can’t wait to continue with Season 2 of Transparent.

Rating: B+  8/10
