Transparent
Amazon has released the trailer for its new dramedy “Transparent,” about an L.A. family dealing with the late-in-life decision of their father (Jeffrey Tambor) to live as a woman. Could this be the show that will catapult Amazon into the Netflix-sphere, where original online content like “Orange Is The New Black” and “House of Cards” wins awards and better yet subscribers? With a fresh and exciting cast including Gaby Hoffman, Jay Duplass, and Amy Landecker as the couple's children, Judith Light as Tambor’s ex-wife, and Carrie Brownstein in a small role, it very well could.

Obvious Child
While it didn’t take any of the Sundance Film Festival awards earlier this year, one of the bigger breakout films from the Utah-set festival was “Obvious Child.” Starring comedienne and former 'SNL' cast member Jenny Slate, the film centers on an unapologetically crude aspiring comedian whose world is turned upside down by a devastating break-up, getting fired from her job and an unplanned pregnancy.

Blame it on the Mayans, maybe, but 2012 and 2013 have seen a host of films with apocalypse on the brain, from big budget action flicks to meta-comedies like “This Is The End,” to smaller, more realistic dramedies like “It’s A Disaster." Director Denis Henry Hennelly’s “Goodbye World” falls more in line with the latter, situating a group of seven college friends in a Northern California cabin in the wake of a cyber attack. While it has its funny moments, it’s definitely not a comedy, but it seeks to acknowledge the weird ways in which people react to times of crisis, especially amongst this particular group, with their complicated personal histories. Will they implode from their own internal strife or outside threats?

Goodbye World
Over the past year or so, we've seen the end of come in a variety of ways on the big screen from the outlandish comedic takes courtesy of "This Is The End" and "The World's End," to more grim takes in fare like "World War Z" that sees civilization on the brink of collapse. But in "Goodbye World," the apocalypse is viewed from afar, from the relative comfort of a cabin in Northern California.
