AUSTIN (KXAN) — Twitter had plenty to say about Netflix’s all new reality show “Twentysomethings: Austin.”

The first six episodes dropped Friday with another six coming Dec. 17. The show follows eight twenty-something strangers trying to navigate life, love and work in America’s fastest growing cities. 

Some viewers loved it…

Others thought something was missing…

While others were more critical of the show…

The crew of twenty-somethings got out of the house and explored what Austin has to offer. 

The most obvious places to make an appearance were: South Congress, the “Welcome to Austin” sign, and pedal boating on Lady Bird Lake. 

At one point, one of the housemates said “You guys are about to see the river for the first time.” This was when referring to Lady Bird Lake — which, technically, is a river with dams on both ends.  He was the only cast member who was living in Austin prior to the show.

The group of eight are fast learners and found patio drinks are the best way to beat the Austin heat.

The show featured meet ups at Nightcap, Sawyer & Co., De Nada, Latchkey, Little Woodrow’s, Desert Door, and Fierce Whiskers Distillery to name a few. 

The fun didn’t stop there because the crew got “Buck Wild” on a mechanic bull and even let loose at “Rain on 4th.”

Some fans paid close attention and spotted illegal parking from the comedian of the bunch. Guess you could say, jokes on him. 

There was no mention of the University of Texas Austin but the group did plan on attending a UT tailgate. That’s according to their to-do list.

Sports were not entirely left out because one of the housemates did try and get a job working for Round Rock Express.

Fans also spotted Texas staples like Blue Bell Ice Cream and Lone Star by the pool.

If you questioned whether the show was actually filmed in Austin, the doubts fade away once there was a scene about good ole Texas bugs! 

It’s too early to say whether we’ll see a sunset date on top Mount Bonnell, or a picnic in Zilker Park. But according to fans, Austin is looking like a place they might want to move to.

Head to KXAN’s Facebook and Twitter and chime in on what you think of the series.
