Disappointed
I was really looking forward to this finale, I loved the whole series. This absolutely sucks! A two hour musical I would rather go to the dentist and get teeth pulled. Most people don't like musicals that's why you see very few, except on Broadway where they are done properly. How sad to end such a great series. Not all gays love musicals!!! Straight people watched this show as well that's why it was so groundbreaking, why ruin such a triumph????? WHY? WHY? WHY?

Possibly the most intelligently-written, well-executed Amazon series
The resonance to someone from the times and places, most featured in this saga, is intensely valid. This show knows my home-world, my people, my music, my struggles. The humor isn't cheap or lazy; what could be trite caricature with lesser treatment, rises to fine art in expert and nuanced detail. Shows excellence with deceptive simplicity through extensive attention to production craft. Never course or primitive. Cast are breathtakingly talented. Stands-up to time and something one wants to revisit for encore!

As to reviews claiming insult, I find this show's view is the opposite of racist/antisemitic. It is culturally sensitive and deeply respectful of more than one culture. I find it an loving homage to Jewish heritage, while bravely examining issues of fairness which must be addressed. I also don't support the "leftist agenda" critique. This show is about justice and humanity. Only if "Right" means "Reichstag", and "Left" means "Stop Nazis", is this a "Leftist" show.

Outstanding production. I hope for more from this full team (top-to-bottom, every aspect of the effort which created this)!.

Hate the Musicale. Absolute Hate. Not sorry.
I totally loved the series. I ate up every episode. Loved the characters. Loved the story. Loved the actors. But that Musicale thing, take it right to the garbage, grind it up, and never do that crap again. Trying to monetize, whatever way possible, diminishes the value of a really good series. Keep it clean. Get a better business manager, who will watch out for your legacy, and would never let you make fools of yourselves.

Not a likable Character in the Pack—Overall insulting to Jews
I wish the creators had picked another religion or ethnicity, as being Jewish was incidental to the plot. There isn't a likable character in the cast, each one more neurotic and narcissistic than the other. Altogether WAY TOO MUCH PC in the episodes. It's insulting to represent Jews in this way, especially in the episode taking place in Israel. It definitely looks like the writers took a position. It would have been nice had they given equal weight to Isreal, giving it as much of sympathetic angle as they gave Palestine—very anti-zionist. The characters are quite one-dimensional and although they talk about finding deeper meaning, they never seem to evolve. I think the popularity of this series stems from the current resurgence of antisemitism in the United States as well the overabundance of sex without the boundaries of conventional television/movies in every episode.

I'M PRETTY CLOSE TO SPEECHLESS.....
As a major fan of the series, I was more than a little bemused when I read that the finale was going to be a musical. The concept initially struck me as being outright inappropriate - and I was puzzled, to the extent that I was actually wondering if the article I was reading was going to turn out to be some sort of bizarre joke.

Prior to beginning to watch tonight, I took a quick glance at the reviews. That gave me my first clue, as there was a significant percentage of single star ratings, and a number of lower ratings in general.

I was able to stomach about twenty minutes of the show before I called it a night. What I did see was such a tremendous disappointment that I simply couldn't bear to continue watching one of my favorite series of all time reduced to the absurdity of whatever in the hell *this* is!

Because of my sincere respect for "Transparent" during its run, I will at some point attempt to give it another shot; however, I at the moment hold *very* little hope that some sort of major change is going to be able to alter my present opinion. When I think about the terrific areas they *could* have addressed in two hours, it saddens me deeply.

(Normally, I wouldn't even consider any sort of critique on a show that I didn't actually finish watching - BUT, if something can't hold even a previously devoted fan past twenty minutes or so, there is obviously something intrinsically Wrong within its production).

Well worth watching
I loved everything about this series, especially that the producers were unafraid of topics other stay mum about. There is so much packed into this show. I am sad to see it end.

The worst finale of any show I ever watched. I feel cheated.
I was an ardent fan of the show Transparent and watched each show of every season at least twice. Although I didn't love the self centered Pfefferman kids, I sat through their craziness because I adored both Maura (Jeffrey Tambor) and Shelly (Judith Light). The series came to screeching halt after Jeffrey Tambor was accused of sexual wrongdoing and was fired. I mourned that day because I knew there was no way the show could go on without its star.

But what I didn't expect was that the writers would punish the fans for what Tambor supposedly did. This finale, excuse me, MUSICALE finale, was the most inane two hours of viewing I can imagine sitting through. I was so hoping that loose ends would be tied up, real emotion would be shown, and we, the fans, could grieve the loss of Maura properly. But the writers decided to make a mockery out of the show by having the characters break out into (horrible) song and dance wayyyy too often.

The songs were absolutely dreadful. They were more like words that kind of rhymed. The dancing and silly costumes were embarrassing for me to watch and I truly felt bad for the cast having to wrap up an amazing show in such a terribly silly way. And this is coming for a huge fan of musical theater. I am not opposed to musical shows at all. But this one ... It was just all around bad.

I know some shows can get away with doing musical episodes and I loved Glee and even Cop Rock, but this was not on par with even the worst musical shows. Because they apparently couldn't use flashbacks of Maura, the show was empty and without the necessary drama and closure the fans needed. And BOY, did they mess up any built up emotions we may have had for any of the characters. I stand corrected. Judith Light's Shelly came out of this finale pretty much unscathed. She is a marvelous actress with true talent who somehow managed to make a very, very bad script seem bearable. The rest of the cast? Ugh.

The show opens with the revelation that Maura is dead. That is not a spoiler, it was inevitable. From there, there are a few minutes of appropriate shock and grief and then the show goes off the rails and tries to be entertaining by having the cast break out into really bad song and dance,and completely ruin the mood. As I watched, I felt betrayed. Not by Tambor (Although he really messed up!) but by the writers. I was invested in these characters. I was invested in Maura and she is dead. Let me at least mourn the loss of one of the best shows I have watched in a long time and one of the most unique characters. Don't blame ME for your inner strife.

Toward the end, most of the characters who appeared over the course of the series returned and wrapped up their story lines which was what was needed. But it wasn't enough to save this awful finale. I really want a do over. Toss the silly songs and dances and give the fans proper closure. This was a joke. I hated it.

Appeals only to the political left - By design
Deadpan political rhetoric with no soul. Here to appeal to the social climate, and utterly ignorant of art or film design beyond the narrow minded, bigoted messages contained within. May as well have a Democratic Party Production label on it.
