Ringer – “Maybe we can get a dog instead”

9 Nov

Just when I think Ringercan’t get any crazier it does. I don’t think this show will ever jump the shark, because it is one big jump the

shark moment.

I didn’t even have to wait for the last two minutes to get the big moment this week, the highlight for me had to be when Bridget showed up at the dinner with Andrew and Siobhan’s Paris bot-toy Tyler. The look on Tyler’s face was priceless, he thinks he has been sleeping with the bosses wife.  

Question, Tyler told Bridget he didn’t realize he was sleeping with the bosses wife, will Bridget assume Tyler meant before Siobhan killed herself or will this be the first little thing that nags at Bridget, that makes her start to question if Siobhan is really dead.

Remember the rule, no body, no crime, not dead.  She needs to rent Julia Robert’s “Sleeping With the Enemy“, Julia’s character faked her death by drowning out at sea. Maybe this will ring a bell for Bridget.

I am glad this show doesn’t take itself too seriously, I really think all of this melodrama is intentional and very shrewd on the part of the creative team.

They resolved the baby storyline, with a miscarriage, thank god, I really didn’t want that to continue much longer. Juliet and Andrew’s concern was sweet and genuine. Can I please marry Ioan Gruffud, he is so awesome and that accent, so sexy.  I fast forwarded through the Malcolm stuff, but now that they hooked him up with Charlie I guess I have to pay attention.

This week we had smart Bridget (Sarah Michelle Gellar) who figured out how to warn Malcolm about the wire by using the old note in the menu trick. Charlie told Bridget he didn’t find any leads on Gemma.  I said it before I will say it again, until I see a body I say Gemma’s not dead. Maybe Charlie is holding her somewhere?  What is Charlie going to do about Malcolm, poor Malcolm, he went from one bad situation to another all for Bridget. Dude get a clue and get away from this chick she is bad news.

BTW, I love how smudged eyeliner and messy hair equal drug addict in Bridget’s NA flashbacks. 

Juliet hitting on her teacher (Jason Dohring)  is eww, stalking him to the Good Samaritan’s club is creepy. Can’t wait to see how that all plays out. 

Tyler is our new loose cannon.  Will he be the first one to figure out there is two of them, if he is, well-played show. Didn’t see that coming when we first spied him three episodes ago.  Andrew’s business partner could hardly contain her glee when she heard about the miscarriage, she is totally thinking she has a shot with Andrew.

Here is a preview for next weeks episode, “Shut up and eat your Bologna”.  I really do love the titles they use for this show.

Tuesday What You Should Watch

8 Nov

I know they are losing their virginity over on Glee, but the top spot still goes to Ringer.

Last Weeks Ringer ended with Bridget’s ultrasound, if you have been watching Bridget is not pregnant, but her sister Siobhan, who she is impersonating is totally PG.  Wonder what the screen will reveal. The episode description says, they all get said news, the episode title. “maybe we can get a dog instead”, leads me to believe they will think Bridget’s lack of  pregnancy will mean she had a mis-carriage.  

I still want a Bridget/Andrew baby, they will definitely have grief sex over this.

Ringer Review “Oh Gawd, There’s Two of Them”

1 Nov

Malcolm is free, Charlie is a plant and Bridget has an ultrasound. The show keeps building, the story is strong and has really evolved

from what could have been a one note premise into something multi-layered. Good job show. The opening was made of win, with the split screen as both Henry(Kristoffer Polaha) and Andrew (Ioan Gruffud) identified the photo of Bridget. I love it when the show does that kind of crap. Like Juliet walking in with the cops.

First of all I am so glad the torture of Malcolm(Mike Colter) is over, but why is he heading to Bridget, shouldn’t he be on his way to the police.  I guess he is doing the hero thing, and off to protect Bridget. Whatever. I really want Bridget and Andrew together so Malcolm is just in my way.

Fun fact, there is a great fashion site called Go Fug Yourself, they pick apart people’s hideous fashion choices, you should check it out.  They cover the fashion on Ringer and they are merciless. I understand that Sarah Michelle Gellar sent them an email in response to some of their observations. Really a leather dress in the middle of the day.  Loved Henry’s suit, the pink tie and pocket square were awesome.

Someone please tell the costume designer, no more sleeveless for SMG, he upper arms are not up to it. I know SMG said she isn’t pregnant in real life , but she sure looks like it on the show. Full face and boobs.

A couple questions for you the viewer, why is Bridget telling Charlie all that stuff. I understand the bond between sponsor and addict is supposed to be confidential, but really Bridget, have you learned nothing.  At the beginning of the show the writers show how smart she is, setting up the Bridget info with Henry and Andrew, covering her tracks. So is she smart or dumb?

 How did Juliet (Zoey Deutch) get her teacher’s number so fast?  Not that I mind because I love Jason Dohring so any opportunity to bring him deeper into the story is fine with me, but I still think he is bad news. Who the heck drives in Manhattan, I lived there it is brutal. Really Juliet, you couldn’t cab it, and you ruined my Andrew/Bridget squee moment. Way to cock-block.

Gemma, poor Gemma, Shiv is brutal!

I wonder what Bridget saw on the ultrasound monitor? A blank screen? Malcolm’s baby? Or a baby with horns?  If she is pregnant with Malcolm’s baby she is going to have a hard time explaining that one in the delivery room.

“Call me with the next move”

Ringer – Twins with an Identity Crisis

20 Oct

Ringer UP 14% in the ratings!! Congrats Team Ringer.

 

I am not really sure what kind of show Ringer is trying to be, thriller, teen sex, romance drama, my neck hurts from the whiplash from trying to keep up.

No matter what type of show it wants to be, I want them to find Gemma (Tara Summers) just so I don’t have to hear her stupid voicemail message anymore, “you’ve reached, Gemma don’t be boring”. I hope somebody killed her, she is annoying. Although I doubt she is dead, I don’t care what the caller in the last scene said, until I see a body I am not buying it.

Lets say Shiv (Sarah Michelle Gellar) was behind Gemma’s disappearance. Does that mean she found out Gemma found out about Bridget. How did Shiv find out, who is Shiv’s mole in NY?

SMG is blonder, and looks a little tanner, reminds me of how her look changed between seasons 2 and 3 of Buffy.

What was good about last night, we learned how far Bridget will go to protect her new life. What I don’t get is why she implicated herself in the crime?  Agent Machado (Nestor Carbonell) will be on her doorstep every minute, is her strategy to hide in plain sight. No matter what the outcome it made for a nice twist.

There where a couple of times I thought Shiv might be pretending to be Bridget, like when they showed her at the dumpster and calling the police. But based on the last scene that doesn’t seem to be the case. Shiv pretending to be Bridget pretending to be Shiv would be a nice plot twist, it seems like something this show would do.

The rest of the episode was meh, I am over the Juliet (Zoey Deutch) new school thing, as much as I love Jason Dohring I don’t need a student teacher affair in the middle of this mess. The only thing that could redeem him, is if, his character turns out to be FBI, or working for Shiv. When are they going to introduce Juliet’s mother?

Somebody please buy Andrew a clue, they are wasting Ioan Gruffudd, I hope they are just saving him for the big drama scenes that will surely happen when he finds out about Bridget. Of course by that time he will be in love with her and it won’t matter. When the heck are they going to have sex, Bridget needs a bun in the oven, or a miscarriage stat.

Bottom line, Ringer is like watching a Laker game, it all happens in the fourth quarter.  Every week this show has a so-so 58 minutes only to be redeemed by the last two.  What can I say it’s those 2 minutes that keep me coming back.

Preview for November 1st

Ringer – Sneak Peak at Jason Dohring

16 Oct

Logan Echolls

I am a longtime fan of Jason Dohring, loved him on as Logan Echolls on Veronica Mars, and Josef Kostan on CBS Vampire show Moonlight. Glad he will be gracing my TV screen again, he will recur as Mr. Carpenter, a teacher at the New York City public school Siobhan’s stepdaughter, Juliet (played by Zoey Deutch), is forced to attend.

The big question is whether they will have a student/teacher romance, I certainly hope not, been their done that with Pretty Little Liars among countless other shows. EP Pam Veasey says “not right away”, come on Ringer be more original than that.  Check out the link below to see Jason’s debut.
