Embodying the life of teens, this comedy, follows the daily activity of Hattie, a young smart and ambitious queer African American girl, who navigates through life, working on achieving her dreams, through hanging out with her best friends, with whom she works hard to achieve their dreams.
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.
The show's a bit thin on the comedy end of things, often going for more of a hangout vibe than trying to sling jokes. Fortunately, there's strong enough chemistry among the three leads to make that approach work.
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?
