'WYSIWYG' is the story of a transgender woman who can live online as she truly is, without the ridicule she feels in society. With help from her therapy group, she must choose between the safe life she has created online and the unknown possibilities found in the real world. What You See Is What You Get.
See it if you’re interested in a show re an ordinary trans person seeking love through ordinary means. Story is worth developing. Endearing lead.
Don't see it if The writing is very subpar romcom. All but a couple of the songs sound the same (partly bc all piano music). Needs variety.

See it if You want to support an earnest work dealing with trans issues.
