(*Lyrics excerpt from TV theme song*) - "Our Patty loves to rock and roll.... A hotdog makes her lose control!"..... (Oh!? Really!??)

While watching these episodes from the first season of "The Patty Duke Show" (1964-1965) - The one question that kept coming to my mind was this - "Was Patty Duke really an admired and emulated role-model for teenage girls (and trans-gender wannabes) back in the early 1960's?"

IMO - This show's preposterous "Identical Cousins" shtick got real tiresome, real fast. And this flimsy premise for generating laughs was certainly not near enough to carry this program and keep it interesting and entertaining throughout its episodes.

And, finally - Even though Patty Duke had won an Oscar 2 years earlier for her portrayal of the young Helen Keller in "The Miracle Worker" - She sure didn't come anywhere near to proving her Oscar-worthy abilities here in this decidedly dumb TV Sit/Com. No way, Jose.

The season highlights actors and stars such as Jimmy Dean, Frankie Avalon, John Giver and Kay Ballard. If you are in a time pinch, watch disc four. The best episodes of the season are on that disc. I highly recommend the episode Going Steady. It features David Doyle (Bosley of Charlie's Angels fame). He plays Jonathan Harrison, Richard's dad. His thoughts about his son are beyond funny.
