Twins Tamera and Tia Mowry step into their season preem as Tamera Campbell and Tia Landry with Kriss Turner’s witty script, good characters and situations, and a moral about beauty being only skin deep. It’s a stretch to say they’ll lambaste “BevHills 9-etc.,” but “Sister, Sister” is the one with something to say.

Girls were separated at birth, and Tim Reid’s Ray Campbell, Jackee Harry’s gem Lisa Landry each adopted the infants without anyone knowing they were twins. Last season, when the girls met accidentally in a store, a series kicked off. Now, the four are under one roof.

First chapter involves Lisa, Tia and Tamera hitting a beauty department because Lisa had free coupons for a makeover and because Tamera wants to be part of a snooty set of girls. Tia, hitting the jackpot, deserts her sister to congregate with the nasty girls — it’s not clear how or why nice Tia would snub her sister, but the action’s a plot mover.

Ray’s left to overdose with a cappuccino machine, and the pleasantry gives the accomplished Reid something to do. Lisa breaks out with a rash. The twins, got up differently, cover their roles well, and Jackee Harry rings the bell as Lisa. Marques Houston as younger, rejected schoolboy Roger adds a nifty freshness.

Sight gags are effective, and director Art Dielhenn gives the sitcom an effective pacing. The twins? They’re a delight.
