Betty and I are addicted to Chloe Sevigny in Hit & Miss. She plays a M to F transgender hit man who discovers that she has a son when her ex-wife sends her a letter on her death bed asking her to take care of her kids.

In the first scene we see "Mia" naked with her post-hormones, pre-op body. Seeing Chloe with a beautiful uncricumcised penis was stunning. And watching her character navigate parenting and dating while making hits and living between genders is captivating. The story line is so rich and so multi-layered.

If you read the comments on netflix, transgender viewers believe that this series is the most accurate portrayal of their experience.   I agree.

Can't wait for Season 2.

I wonder how happy the transgender community could really be with a professional-killer protagonist who commits cold-blooded murders in between hot dates, doctor's appointments, and dropping her kids off at school. I haven't seen the show, but I find the whole premise very disturbing.
