A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

The sisters have successful, positive lives that they work hard to maintain. From their careers to their relationships with spouses, friends, and each other, they offer a realistic portrayal of modern women's lives in the public eye. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Tia and Tamera offer a realistic portrayal of two sister's relationship. From devotion and love to annoyance and anger, they keep it real. 

Violence
Sex

Positive affection such as hugging and kissing is shown between husband and wife. There is some talk of bodily functions related to pregnancy, such as urination and breastfeeding. Tia does a nude photo shoot (with breasts blurred for the camera) and then decides to not publish the photos. The sisters also talk about having sex while pregnant.

Language

Language includes "hell," "whore," and "boobs."

Consumerism

Celebrity name dropping happens left and right. The sisters participate in promotion for their acting careers, such as Tia's cover for Us Weekly

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this reality show about twin sister actresses documents adult rites-of-passage like marriage and childbearing. Overall, the tone is upbeat and funny, but the sisters occasionally argue and cry during difficult moments. Discussion about sex and occasional mild language ("hell," "whore") pops up. Teens who deal with an infuriating-yet-beloved sibling will appreciate the sisters' dynamic together.

What's the story?

The former twin sister stars of Sister, Sister (Tia Mowry and Tamera Mowry) balance life and career as one twin deals with pregnancy and the other plans her wedding. Each sister navigates these rites of passage along with their acting careers, which include hosting TV shows and getting in shape.

Is it any good?

TIA & TAMERA offers a cute, engaging, and undeniably real look at how sisters interact. There is a universal appeal to the way that the twin sisters navigate their lives with each other, from grumpy grousing to sincere love, that makes this show appealing to anyone who's dealt with sibling relationships.

That said, the twins' dynamic is the major carrying force of the series. There isn't a whole lot that's terribly interesting within the plotline. Yes, there's a wedding being planned, and yes, there's a baby on the way, but there's nothing else that really propels the show forward. As adorable and engaging as Tia and Tamera may be as people, the show falls a bit flat when it comes to plotline. The twins note in one episode that they're "stronger together," and the same holds true for the show as well. In fact, without the twins' unique dynamic together, the show wouldn't be worth watching at all.
