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.

I love this show!!
7 November 1999 | by (West Coast) – See all my reviews

I have to disagree with the many negatives comments I have read here about this show. I'm a 38 year-old who was never a fan of "Full House" or the Olsen Twins UNTIL I caught "Two of a Kind" this past summer. The twins are much older now, complete with their own individual personalities. They are lovely girls, charming, very talented, etc., etc., etc. I instantly liked the show and so did everyone else in the room. We wondered WHY we hadn't heard about this great sit-com and later wondered why it was yanked off. I am now catching all the repeats on the Fox Family Channel and loving every minute. The episode with one of the twin's girlfriends who was ridiculed for being "different" was very touching and very moving. This is quality television and someone made a very big mistake in not renewing the series. Hopefully some other network will pick it up soon while the girls are this age. They are just adorable. The criticism about their maturer look is just a matter of opinion. The girls dress and act fine. The Olsen Twins are new to me since I never cared for "Full House" and it is so refreshing to see a show about two young girls without the attitude I see in young people on other shows that turn me off completely. I hope others that like this show as much as I do, will take the time to post their thoughts on the show. Maybe we can start a campaign to get it back on the air. Not since "All-American Girl" with Margaret Cho have I liked a new sit-com this much. It's very well written. I like the actor who plays the father, but I think the others in the cast need to go. However, I would watch it either way.
