    • These episode titles are ridiculous.

      5.5
      Then again, so are the episodes. I liked the first few episodes of this show, I found it rather clever, even if it wasn't original. Add to that the fact that everybody knows who Sarah Michelle Gellar is and you had a show that was watchable and attimes even well acted and written. As it has moved along, however, it has become more and more ludicrous to the point where they are so many 'bad guys' that we don't know who to be cheering for because, apart from Bridget, everyone seems to have a very nasty side and a personal axe to grind. At least Bridget is likeable. the rest of them, with, for me, Juliet being the exception, are just plain annoying. Farcical storylines aside, I don't think this show is supposed to be a comedy and yet the ineptitude keeps amusing me.moreless
    • Confession Time... Someone didn't take her meds...

      6.5
      Did Ringer just try to redeem itself? Because this episode was a little less ridiculous...



      The bigger part of this episode unravelled the murder plot around Siobhan. Of course, we already knew that Catherine was the evil schemer, but give Bridget-Siobhan and Machado a break, Bridget-Siobhan just recently entered the rich people, bad attitudes world and Machado had to be relieved of his FBI badge to get productive... Well, it was also confession time when Machado found a body in a freezer. So Bridget told Machado she had stolen that guy's phone after killing him. She's so lucky that he isn't FBI right now, because he forgot to arrest her and they concluded whoever took the phone from Bridget and still kept it in her purse for someone to find while drugged passing out would be the one trying to get rid of Bridget-Siobhan. Yeah, we were heading to a cliffhanger episode ending...



      Meanwhile, Henry was angry with his father-in-law for framing him for a murder he actually committed. So he confronted him and his father-in-law told him that he had paid a private investigator to look into Henry's past year and found out about the affair with Siobhan. Funny enough, that PI didn't find out that there was one of two Siobhans living with Henry at that moment, especially with her being so busy running all kinds of errands. For example trying to pay the maid off who had seen Henry coming out of Tyler's hotelroom and therefor was the key witness in Henry's case. Well, the maid clearly misunderstood Siobhan and brought the money to the police... Not to mention, Henry was quite impressed with Siobhan's work. By the way, Siobhan's plan almost led to a confrontation of the twins, luckily Henry was a quick thinker and lied to Bridget about paying someone to pay the maid who just happened to look like Bridget-Siobhan. Good work, Henry!



      Well, then there was Catherine. She probably knows Andrew has some kind of identity disorder because she came back, scratched her wrists bloody and Andrew totally forgot to strip her off her parental rights so fast that her head spinned. Actually, he completely forgot about it. So this serious attempt on her life made Juliet believe her mother had to come live with them. Because that's what you do with sick, suicidal persons. Well, Juliet, you don't let crazy into your home! I'm not sure I can blame Andrew and Bridget-Siobhan for giving in, who wouldn't want teenage daughter to take care of suicidal and criminal mother? And Juliet, the greatest judge of character there is on this show, could already see after half a day of being her mother's nurse that she was already getting better. Everyone else wondered why Juliet didn't realize that her mother was just collecting her downers. Quick reminder, Juliet, taking medicine actually means to swallow them, not to just "take" them...



      Then there was the best scene in its whole run: Juliet approaching Bridget's back with a letter opener in her ready-to-stab hand. Obviously, Juliet has never been taught how to approach people with a letter opener. However, she didn't kill intentionally or accidentally anyone and just smiled and gave Bridget the letter opener who was desperately gnawing at her mail after not finding her letter opener. Juliet had figured sharp objects might not be the best things to keep around her mother and taken them away. To be honest, I pictured Juliet running around the home with a bag full of sharp objects and knives. Does crazy skip a generation? I don't think so...



      Oh, not to forget the cliffhangery ending. So Henry's father-in-law went to distract Andrew with the infamous memory stick while Bridget passed out after drinking tea with Catherine's downers. Oh damn, way too many TV heroines are getting drugged with tea on TV right now. I'm not sure that would have been a clue for Bridget about who wanted to kill her, but right before she lost consciousness, she was lucky enough to find the killer's phone in Catherine's purse. Damn ex-wives who can't let go of their ex-husbands...



      To be honest, that episode was not that bad after all and I even laughed every now and then. Though I'm not sure it was intended that way. I could do without the pathetic confessions and revelations we already know about. However, I guess that's how this show works. There are like two questions I keep pondering about: will Catherine kill Bridget and live happily ever after with Andrew and Juliet? Or will Siobhan take her life back and get Catherine some help in a mental health facility? Wait, there's more: Will one of the Andrews be able to make his Ponzi scheme disappear and Malcolm come back for the finale? And will Henry be able to make up with his father-in-law? Damn you Ringer, that's more than two questions. Better hurry up and answer them with your last two episodes!moreless
    • Did you give the smart writers the week off this time?

      5.0
      I love this show but this was one of the most flawed episodes I've seen. The whole Catherine story was flakey. Sure she's a conniving bitch and we know that because we see from the viewer's perspective but are we honestly to believe that her daughter and ex-husband are both so naive as to not know she's a psychopath?? Especially after the scam she masterminded??? And how about the "suicide" attempt. A supposed psychiatrist examined her and thought it was a genuine attempt and didn't pickup in the slightest hint that she was a manipulative sociopath! A real psychiatrists would have seen through her in a heartbeat. She tells Andrew quot;If you hadn't found her when you did, she very likely would have succeeded.end quot; Yes he just 'happened' to find her 1. in his house when nobody else was supposed to be home and 2. after she turned on classical music to make sure he found her. I know this was to move the plot line along to get her in the apartment so she could try and make good on her plans to kill Siobhan but don't insult our intelligence by getting her there with a stupid plot twist that suddenly turns Andrew and the daughter into idiots. Hell, Bridgette's street smart enough she should have easily seen through Catherine. I'm also getting a little tired of the daughter. The character is much too old to get away with such irresponsibility and the actress portraying her is by far the weakest actor in the cast. She is a badly written character being badly acted. Shame on this episode. It was insulting to fans of the intelligent intrigue that normally makes Ringer great.moreless

      If You're Just an Evil Bitch Then Get over It was another perfect episode of Ringer because the story lines were well written, superbly acted, and magnificently directed! There was a lot of character and plot development along with surprising revelations and ramifications. I enjoyed watching the drama and intrigue unfold as the plot thickened. There are so many elements that make this show so amazing and this episode was full of them. I certainly look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless

      I think this was a great episode and I hated to see it end, now I have to wait another week again!!!



      I truly hope Machado gets there in time and shoots Catherine in the head or something...I can't stand her...
