Storyline

"Two of a Kind" is a family comedy with a romantic twist. Kevin Burke is a science professor and single father who believes there is a scientific explanation for everything except how to control his scheming pre-teen daughters! Mary Kate and Ashley are twin sisters who are complete opposites. Mary Kate is a tomboy whose biggest interest is perfecting her curve ball; and Ashley is a straight-A student starting a boy-crazy phase. And then there's Carrie, a 26-year-old freshman in Kevin's seminar who has come late to college after exploring the world. Carrie is quirky, difficult, beautiful and quick to speak her mind, so when she answers Kevin's ad for a part-time nanny for the girls, he is convinced she's nothing but trouble. The girls think she is a dream-sitter come true and agree to put their differences aside and join forces to make a little chemistry between their by-the-book dad and the beautiful woman who seems to drive him crazy in all the right ways.

The one decent thing the Olsens' did- and it gets cancelled!
1 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen formed Dualstar entertainment group when they were six-years-old. Now 18, they have not churned out a single good project. Save one thing: Two Of A Kind. Two Of A Kind is about 12-year-old twins called Mary-Kate (Mary-Kate Olsen) and Ashley (Ashley Olsen) (how imaginative) who are raised by their dad, Kevin (Christopher Sieber) after their mother dies. Mary-Kate is a tomboy who spends most of her time playing sports and hanging with the guys. Ashley is a prim and proper girlie girl more interested in what's in Vogue, and dating boys. Their dad, Kevin, is a college professor who hires one of his students, Carrie (Sally Wheeler), to take care of the twins whilst he's not there. Produced by the Olsens', this was meant to be a starring vehicle for them, however, the show really belongs to Christopher Sieber and Sally Wheeler. They have fantastic on screen chemistry and get all the funniest lines and are much more entertaining to watch then the twins who the show is meant to be about. This being the only decent thing to come from Dualstar and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, it was cancelled after only one season. However, if only to watch the brilliant Christopher Sieber and Sally Wheeler, catch some of the re runs. Two Of A Kind is a funny and entertaining show.
