Ringer Oh Gawd, There’s Two of Them?

This fabulous show starring Sarah Michelle Gellar dwells into a plot line that is so complex, intriguing and sophisticated it boggles the mind and yet manages to stay focused, crisp and ever cleared each week. The premise of this show is two twin sisters with bad karma change identities. One sister, Bridget is an addict and former stripper who is a star witness in a mob trial while the other sister Siobhan seems to lead a completely normal life with her husband in New York. Bridget visits Siobhan before testifying in the mob trial and Siobhan fakes her own suicide. In order to avoid her troubles Bridget assumes the identity of her twin sister. Siobhan secret sneaks off to Paris for reasons that are not quite obvious. Meanwhile Bridget is left to deal with Siobhan’s karma in New York which is challenging for an addict. So Bridget is dealing with her own karma and Siobhan’s karma and the challenge for Bridget is to do it well so she doesn’t die from it while Siobhan has got off scotch free from her karma.


And that was only the first episode. This show has all the elements of a major tragedy and yet there is an optimisms in the story line as Bridget works diligently to over come the significant hurdles in her life by those characters around her that constantly contort to fit the reality they would like to live in while Bridget maintains the same though line and is consistent and sober.

The show has a real Asian element with two sisters with bad karma in which one sister wishes to leave the other sister with all of the bad karma. And it is a wonderfully fresh sophisticated plot in for which there have been many episodes aired.

Review

Bridget entraps Henry with the physical evidence of Gemma's murder but unfortunately Bridget leaves her finger prints behind and implicates herself. She wants Henry and Andrew in advance about the existence of Bridget which makes no one very happy. Bridget as Siobhan promises Andrew Bridget Kelly is gone for good but no one is consistent in this show. Malcolm and Bridget apparently had an intimate relationship but were very close friends.

Bridget as Siobhan goes to her sponsor and asks for a police favor and Malcolm manages to escape his tortures only to find they only let him go to follow him to Bridget.

Juliette manages to get into a car accident before Bridget as Siobhan can consummate her relations with Andrew.

Really tantalizing episode this week and SMG is just fantastic In Ringer each week on the CW Tuesday night at 9pm EST>
