OK, Amazon, you got us.
If you haven’t watched Transparent yet, cancel your weekend plans. Amazon is streaming the whole series for free on Saturday, but just for 24 hours. It’s cold, it’s the end of January, and it’s binge-watching time.
Transparent won two Golden Globes this year, an unprecedented achievement for an Internet-based TV show, never mind something as offbeat as a comedy/drama about a transgender retiree. The series is one of Amazon’s first genuinely successful attempts at original programming, and it’s clearly hoping to capitalize on that buzz over the weekend.
You ordinarily have to pay an Amazon Prime subscription fee to watch Transparent, so this is a good deal if you’re not interested in Amazon’s other programming. However, you should be aware that this may be a frustratingly efficient ad for the service, because once you’ve watched the first season, you’ll probably want to pay for season 2 when it comes out. You have been warned.
