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.

Worth it for Christopher Sieber and Sally Wheeler
20 May 2003 | by (Iowa, USA) – See all my reviews

As a 19 year old who loves "kids'" TV, I can honestly say that I really enjoy this show. I disagree with the people who have said that Mary-Kate and Ashley are bad actresses... I think they're very cute and obviously have great experience working together. The writing for this show is very good; it's funny and often witty.

Even if you're not a fan of the Olsen twins, this show is ALL WORTH IT for the interaction between Christopher Sieber (the dad) and Salley Wheeler (the babysitter). They are hilarious together, and come on, they're both so darn cute!! The romantic tension between them really makes the show and keeps people like me watching. It's a shame the show was cancelled-- with their potential romantic relationship, this show could really have been something, with or without the Olsens.

I recommend giving it a try, whether you're an adult, a kid, or somewhere in between. It's worth it!
