Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Twinning is a reality competition featuring very close pairs of twins who compete while separated from each other. It reveals some quirky characteristics twins may possess, but the show's focus is mostly on the standard reality drama. It contains lots of strong vocab ("bitch," "piss," "ass"; bleeped curses, blurred gestures), sexual innuendo, arguing, and bullying between contestants. There's also lots of drinking.
Is It Any Good?
The series offers all the drama, cursing, and sexual innuendo one comes to expect from these sorts of reality competitions. Nonetheless, it also manages to highlight some of the interesting and quirky characteristics twin siblings often share, including being able to sense what the other is thinking or doing while they're apart, saying the same things at the same time, and even sleeping in the same bed.
It also underscores how difficult it can be for close sets of adult twins -- some of whom have never been apart for more than 24 hours -- to be without their other half. But much of this translates into endless arguing and some outright bullying as they try to cope alone and defend each other. It's not an ideal exhibit of twin or human behavior, but reality fans may find something entertaining here.
Did we miss something on diversity?
