DESCRIPTION: (from Amazon's press release, October 2014) Amazon Original Series Transparent is already breaking records. In just over a week since its debut, the critically acclaimed dark comedy, created by Jill Soloway (Afternoon Delight, Six Feet Under) and starring Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness), is the no. 1 ranked series on Prime Instant Video since the show's launch. Also proving popular among critics, the new show clocked in a near-perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes with a 98 percent critic rating, and a 91 metascore on Metacritic, making Transparent one of TV's top three highest ranked, currently airing shows. Due to the overwhelming success of the show, and the incredibly positive viewer response, Amazon Studios has greenlit a second season of Transparent, to air in 2015. Prime members are finding it very hard to step away from all ten episodes of Transparent. Since its debut, Transparent is the most binge-watched TV series on Prime Instant Video with nearly 80 percent of all viewers bingeing on two or more episodes of the series in the same day. This makes Transparent's binge-factor higher than any of the other Prime Instant Video binge leaders in the past.
