this episode is great i have looked for it for years, i recorded it in 1980 on casette tape. I love how hard the nephew works to get out of work. PLEASE listen to it it is first class.

I took Laura's suggestion; this is indeed one of the better episodes. A greedy nephew tries to get some easy money, but ends up getting less than what he desires.

Thanks Laura & Justin for suggesting this terrific episode. the sound quality is great with no commericials. I love the ending- the lazy, layabout nephew gets an unexpected surprise!

Two of a Kind begins (and continues) on the slow side, with some pretty mediocre dialogue, but evolves to a highly suspenseful and exciting climax. Martha Greenhouse plays the role of the unbalanced and overbearing aunt, fresh from the sanitarium, very well. None of the characters in Henry Slesar’s story are particularly likeable, which prohibits the episode from being a favorite. Early banal and poorly acted scheming between Russell Horton and Kristoffer Tabori are balanced by an above-average climax that is worth waiting for. Two of a Kind gets an average 3 of 5 stars. JUROR #4
