Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Twentysomethings: Austin is Netflix's modern take on the MTV classic The Real World. The reality show thrusts eight strangers, four women and four men, from around the U.S. into two homes with a shared backyard. While they each attempt to build new lives in the city, their daily routine is characterized by sexual behavior, job searches, and drinking. Conversation topics range from sexual orientations and family deaths, to life passions, body image, and political views. The housemates range in age from 23 to 28, so it's no surprise that the show's topics are intended for a mature audience.
Is It Any Good?
The show embodies the spirit of making the most of life in your twenties, and always trying new things. The housemates of Twentysomethings: Austin define what it means to never judge a book by its cover, as they make unexpected connections and discover similarities and respect for another another that isn't obvious at first sight. The show generally lacks structure and does not equally follow each housemate's storyline. While the overall message may inspire audiences to take chances, and live life to the fullest, it doesn't provide a robust offering otherwise.
