'Oy gevalt': 'Transparent' season 1 in review

Belated thoughts on the first season of the fantastic Amazon dramedy

It's been nearly two months since Amazon debuted the first season of "Transparent," and more than a month since Amazon ordered a second season of the Jill Soloway-created drama. I've been meaning ever since to write a spoiler-filled book-end to my original review, looking over the entire 10-episode first season, but other things kept getting in the way. Better late than never, here are many thoughts on this show's great first season coming up just as soon as you let me know if you see any mustard...

Series premiere talkback: 'State of Affairs' - 'Pilot'

What did everybody think of Katherine Heigl's return to TV?

I posted my review of "State of Affairs" this morning. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Watered-down "Homeland," or its own exciting thing? Were you happy to have Katherine Heigl back on TV, or did this seem like a bad fit for her? Were you interested in the inner workings of what the briefers do? Do you care about what happened to Charleston's fiance? Are you having issues with the name Charleston Tucker? And will you watch again?

Have at it.

Review: Katherine Heigl returns to TV in 'State of Affairs'

The 'Grey's Anatomy' alum is a CIA analyst who briefs the president in 'Homeland'-esque drama

Imitation is the sincerest form of television, and anytime a new show becomes a hit, you can guarantee that another network — usually several networks — will be racing to copy it. With "State of Affairs" — either the last new fall network show, or the first mid-season replacement, depending on your point of view — the question isn't whether it's imitating another show, but which one.
