News & Interviews for Twenties: Season 1
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.
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.
Newcomer Gibbs is good, but it's a shame Waithe doesn't appear in her own story - a sharply written, often amusing one.
While that premise is full of promise and Twenties has been hailed as a progressive feat, the show ultimately eschews multidimensional queer dynamics and rests solely on its queer optics.
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.
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...
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.
Twenties is definitely light on character development, but Gibbs shines as Hattie and the perspective the show presents is unique.
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.
