Critic Reviews for Twenties Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

It's a series that clearly wants to set itself apart with its visual style and rhythm, and, for the most part, it succeeds in that regard.

Mar 6, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

While the dialogue sometimes veers into cliché, Twenties is sharpest when its characters work through issues rooted in Waithe's own path to Hollywood power.

Mar 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Newcomer Gibbs is good, but it's a shame Waithe doesn't appear in her own story - a sharply written, often amusing one.

From creator Lena Waithe comes this light yet smart, easy-to-binge comedy about three black women in their, yes, 20s trying to carve out careers in Hollywood.

Mar 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Twenties never comes down hard one way or the other about what makes for good black art, but revels in showing people having the debate...

Mar 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Gibbs' easygoing chemistry with each of her co-stars - including recurring player Kim Whitley, who plays Hattie's lonely mom - mean that the central trio make for believable besties from their very first scene together.

Mar 4, 2020 | Full Review…

For the moment, Waithe's Twenties is fine, it gets by, but here's hoping it exceeds that to become the Black excellence Waithe believes she can deliver-and that her viewers deserve.

Top Critic

Twenties is definitely light on character development, but Gibbs shines as Hattie and the perspective the show presents is unique.

Mar 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Twenties feels like it's cutting corners.

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Twenties' is most enjoyable when it allows itself to be unapologetically silly, and one way it maintains its own sense of quirky identity is by peppering Old Hollywood references (black-and-white movies, Sinatra-style big band tunes) into the story.

Mar 6, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Twenties is a hot mess in all the best ways.

Mar 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Gibbs and Brown possess an unmistakable chemistry that makes Twenties eminently watchable, if only because it appears to be on track to answer a question that thus far, no other show has: What happens when the #MeToo bogeyman is a black woman?

    Hilarious. I love watching a show from the lens of a masculine (stud) black lesbian.
