"Transparent" is a comedy-drama about a Los Angeles father transitioning to life as a woman. The show stars Jeffrey Tambor, Gaby Hoffman, Amy Landecker, and was created by Jill Soloway. Since the show's debut, it has been the number one ranked original show on the service. Critics have also given the show a near-perfect 98 percent score on RottenTomatoes.
The show's success marks out Amazon Prime Video as a serious competitor to Netflix when it comes to original on-demand programming. Amazon has also upped the ante in its competition with Netflix by offering offline support on mobile devices, something Netflix does not yet support.
