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.

An unexpected surprise!
8 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently discovered this show in reruns on ABC Family Channel. They are showing it in the mornings on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It is a very fun show. The interactions between the twins and their father seem very genuine. I wish this show had been on longer. If they ever release this on DVD, I would buy it in an instant. It's a fun show for the whole family.

BTW, I am a teenage guy; so I'm not really the target audience, but this show is just genuinely funny.

If you do like this show, on Tuesdays and Thursdays ABC Family airs the Olsen twins' other show "So Little Time." I don't think that it is quite as good as "Two of a Kind," but it is still better than the average sitcom.

Come on Mary-Kate and Ashley, make another show, you've got a fan right here who would love it!
