Every Monday the q screen panel convenes to look at the big stories happening in the film and television worlds.

This week, arts and culture critics John Semley and Lara Zarum join host Tom Power to discuss the musical finale of the Amazon series Transparent, in which Jeffrey Tambor's character was killed off.

Tambor played the lead, Maura Pfefferman, a late-in-life transgender parent, until he was fired last year following allegations of sexual misconduct. Tambor has denied the allegations.
