Transparent ($FREE) is the newest comedy drama series from the folks over at Amazon. Created by Jill Soloway who brought us Six Feet Under, it follows a family whose patriarch (Jeffrey Tambor) comes out as a woman to his now divorced wife and three children. His kids also have their own quirks and the show delves into how they all engage with one another. First up is Sarah who is starting a romance with her college girlfriend despite being married. Ali, his other daughter, can't get grounded and moves from one project to another, and his successful record producer son, is basically human woman repellant. Transparent will be hitting Prime on September 26th, but you can checkout the pilot for free right now.

How far would you go for the ultimate burger satisfaction? This is the dilemma dealt with in Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle ($7) when our unlikely heroes get a serious case of the munchies and go on an adventure to end all adventures. This movie may replace the Cheech and Chong series as the ultimate stoner movie of all times. Starring John Cho, Kal Penn, Ethan Embry, N.P.H. and directed by Danny Leiner, this is one of my must sees. Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle was also credited with relaunching Neil Patric Harris's career.
Sicily Kolbeck proves that most teenagers aren't just sitting around twiddling their thumbs. She designed and built her own house, Le Petit Maison ($10,000). Sicily created an Indiegogo campaign last year and raised $1660 towards her project. Her mom was able to foot the rest of the $10,000 cost. The house she created is fully operationally and includes a kitchen, bathroom, reading area, and a sleeping loft. The home looks so amazing, I just might put one up in the back yard.
