Amazing acting all family members blow my mind as if they're not acting. Phenomenal. Not a world I'm at all familiar with but this cast has gone beyond giving you a taste of what it's like. I read it's based off a true story I can't even begin to imagine. So locked into to this will seriously have issue when series ends.

Love, love, love this series. The characters are well thought out, there are tender and funny moments, and it lets people who have not been exposed to transgender folks see that they are just as human as everyone else is. Keep this one!!

I couldn't bare to watch the entire first episode. The "funny" offensive commentary and lack of representation is not what I expected from a show about a trans woman.
