(*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 2nd 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 3 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.

i wanted to like this dvd set. (unfortunately the quality of the recordings is excellent...we can't blame that. i remember this show from my tender years. but on recent viewing... it is awful. worse than awful. wooden. stilted dialogue. episodes with no action and little plot.

if you loved the "other", the Parent Trap with Hayley Mills, which does hold up well, and you only have one choice....it is hayley mills all the way.

parrt duke show is waste of time and library monetary resources!
