Tuesday 4/24 What You Should Watch

24 Apr

Ringer ended last week, so now Tuesday’s are just Glee for me, which is pretty sad because it has really gone down hill.

Ringer “I’m The Good Twin”

18 Apr

So it’s over, Ringer aired it’s season (and most likely series) finale last night. And to be honest, I am not to sure how I feel about it.

As finales goes, it wrapped up some things, left a few things open and started new threads for next season. With the exception of Malcolm, no one of consequence got killed, Jimmy was a throw away and I think we all knew Bodaway wasn’t going to make it to season 2.  I wish the writers had decided to give Andrew and Bridget a happy ending, I think it would have been far more interesting if Bridget had confessed to Andrew only to find out he knew all along.

The scene when Bridget came clean was really well played, SMG and Ioan Gruffudd really rocked the emotion, my heart broke for both of them. I really hope Ioan gets another show, I need him on my TV every week.

The way they ended it, with Andrew and Juliet turning their backs on Bridget gives them more options for season 2, but I really think renewal is a long shot and I would have preferred a happy ending. Perhaps they can give me an alternate ending on the DVD.  Now that Tim (Gregory Harrison), who is sexier now then his younger days, and he was pretty damn hot on Trapper John, M.D. owns Martin/Charles will he be a regular in season 2.  Now that Bodaway is dead what is Machado going to do, I wonder how they will bring him back.

Andrew has kicked Bridget to the curb, Henry stole all of Shiv’s money and kicked her to the curb, and told Bridget Shiv is alive. Does Bridget move in with Henry, team up and go after Shiv. Of course Shiv holds the mother of all cards, the twins are Andrew’s. Does she move back in with Andrew?  They really painted themselves into a corner, the show doesn’t work if Bridget knows about Shiv.

I guess the only question left is will it be renewed, guess we will find out during the upfronts in mid-May.

Did you watch Ringer? Do you think it deserves a second season?

Television Without Pity has listed 4 reasons  Why Ringer Should Be Cancelled, the two I most agree with, everyone was massively stupid and it will free up the actors for other shows.  Click on the link to see the rest.

Ringer “It’s Called Improvising Bitch”

11 Apr

I gotta hand it to the folks at Ringer, I think they knew the end was near so they just keep going for broke with these last few episodes.  Even if they don’t get a second season at least they will be remembered as that bat-shit crazy show Sarah Michelle Gellar did for a season on The CW. We should have known the ship was going down when the wardrobe went from being cutting edge fashion to Target chic.

On last night’s episode. Catherine tries to kill Bridget, who she thinks is Shiv, when Andrew foils her plan she decides to kill them both, when Juliet foils that plan she decides to hold everyone hostage. Then she calls, wait for it… Olivia, her lover and partner in crime. Olivia is having none of this craziness and tells Catherine good-bye, sending Catherine over the edge, or more over than she is already.   Our hapless tri call Agent Machado on cell phone they have hidden in the couch, using the old one way call to fill him in on their situation.  He springs into action, and heads off to Olivia’s, he uses her to lure Catherine out of the apartment. She takes Bridget hostage and heads to Olivia’s, where our FBI guy finally gets to save the day.

Meanwhile, Shiv is still trying to get Henry cleared of Tyler’s murder. She heads over to Oksana’s (the hotel maid that fingered Henry) and quickly figures out Oksana is a high priced hooker and that is why her payoff wasn’t nearly enough. One of Oksana’s tricks shows up, she hides Shiv in the closet.  Ok, if all the crazy with Catherine wasn’t enough, check this out.  Shiv is locked in the closet while Oksana and her customer have sex, do blow and Oksana od’s, and to top it off Shiv goes into labor.  Love this crazy show!!

Shiv has a C-section, her twins, yes her female twins are premature and in bad shape. Henry is by her side, and in a move that proves Henry bought a clue, he asks the doctor for a paternity test. Go Henry.

I am not sure how they can top this if they get a second season, I am sure they will have to dial it back a bit if they do. 

What are the possible cliffhangers for next week’s finale? The paternity test? Does Macawi kill Shiv or Bridget? Does Andrew figure it out?  One thing I am sure of, I won’t get a satisfying end to the show. What would I do if it was up to me, if I was Pam Veasy and The CW let me know I had one hour to wrap it up.

First of all I would apologize to the audience that stuck it out all season, I would apologize for squandering the talents of  Ioan Gruffudd, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jason Dohring.  I would apologize for taking a show with an interesting premise, and some great glossy noir episodes in the first half of the season and letting it unravel into the campy crapfest we witnessed in the last 12 episodes.

Then, Malcolm leads Machado to Macawi, Machado gets shot (doesn’t die) Malcolm saves him and kills Macawi in the process. A new bromance is born.  Henry finds out the twins aren’t his or Andrew’s and leaves Shiv and the twins. Shiv, leaves the hospital, abandoning  the twins to social services.  Henry and Bridget renew their vows, the second half of the episode is filled with wedding fun, Juliet and Bridge getting all gussied up. Henry and Tim coming to an agreement over Martin Charles and destroying the flash drive.

Last two minutes of the episode, set against some of the music this show is known for using. (The CW site for Ringer music)

Bridget walks down the aisle, to a beaming Andrew

Shiv walking down the street

Bridget gets to Andrew, he leans in to kiss her and whispers in her ear, I love you Bridget.  Pull back to reveal Bridget’s reaction.

Cut to Shiv walking into a strip club to apply for a job.

Chessy, obvious, but hey after the crap Pam really wrote how could my version be any worse.

4/10 Tuesday What You Should Watch

10 Apr

A lot of new stuff tonight, Glee, Ringer, Cougar Town, NCIS and NCIS LA.

Body of Proof airs it’s season finale tonight, (maybe series) we will have to wait for the upfronts in May to see if it is renewed. Odds are its a goner.

Ringer airs it’s second to last episode tonight, I don’t hold out much hope that it will be renewed, which makes me sad.  Interesting fun fact Ioan Gruffod was in the movie Titanic, went to see the 3D version over the weekend, and there he was saving Rose from he watery grave.

Ringer “Let’s Kill Bridget” Oh F#!&K It Let’s Kill Everyone

28 Mar

Coco Channel had a lot of fashion advice, one of her gems, after you finish dressing take off the last accessory you put on, this will ensure you have not overdressed.  Well Ringer should take this advice, only they need to remove more than one accessory.

I guess the show really is getting cancelled because they keep piling so much stuff on there won’t be anything left for next season.

I do have to hand it to them, last night’s opening tease was probably one of the best of the season. 

Henry being interviewed by the cops, Catherine and Andrew kissing, Bridget or Shiv shot dead. After the commercial we find out that all of this action is a flash forward. We pick up 2 days earlier, Machado is questioning Bridget and Andrew about the Tarot card. Am I the only one who thinks showing SMG a tarot card is just too funny. I know I need to let go of the Buffy but I can’t.

Plotwise a lot happened last night, and in true Ringer fashion they dropped a bomb on us in the last 2 minutes of the show, more on that later.

Henry’s father in law turned him into the cops for Tyler’s murder, that is cold. Juliet and Andrew conspired to get the money back from Catherine with a phony real estate deal, Machado went after the Tarot Card guy, and in the end he and Bridget (who thinks is Shiv) faked her death so Macawi would think he killed Bridget. Got all that, I told you a lot of accessories, right, and not small cute accessories either. I am talking big plastic, neon colored earings, belts, bangles and slouchy socks from the 80’s accessories.

Poor Henry, one of the forums calls him “toolbelt”,  because he is such a tool.  I agree he is a tool, but I really hope he doesn’t go down because of Shiv.  I am getting a vision of the season/series finale, Henry being escorted to his jail cell, Shiv in labor, Catherine and Bridget in a life or death struggle over a gun or on a balcony. 

BTW I am completely convinced that Andrew knows who Bridget is, and has known for awhile. I predict that comes out in the second to last episode. I am so in love with Ioan Gruffudd, if only he would marry me. A girl can dream.

Other things worth mentioning:

  • Bridget’s really bad stripper hair, and those outfits
  • Limo driver guy, what is up with that plot point
  • Machado loosing control and tackling the dry cleaner customer and getting suspended, rogue FBI agent, nothing more dangerous
  • Gregory Harrison Still brings the pretty
  • Catherine’s necklace when she meets with Toby (eww note to writers everywhere do not use the name Toby ever) 

And of course the biggest moment of them all, Catherine is on the other end of the hitman’s phone at the end. So has she been the mastermind the whole time trying to bump off Shiv.

Next Week:

Tuesday 3/27 What You Should Watch

27 Mar

Ringer continues to pull out all the stops, Henry grew a pair, they finally gave Machado something interesting to do, it only took them half a season to give him a story. Andrew and Bridget made up, which means more heartache is on the way.  I can’t wait to find out of he knew the whole time and has just been playing along.

Tonight’s outing, “Let’s Kill Bridget”, looks like the thrill ride continues. If  the promos are to be believed, we have another murder, I am going with Olivia, Henry being interrogated for Tyler’s murder, I guess Shiv didn’t like that he gave the flash drive away. And Shiv confronting and shooting Bridget, I think thru the magic of editing we will find out Bridget is not on the receiving end of those bullets.

Judging by the sneak peak below Andrew has Fantastic healing abilities.

Ringer

Bridget decides she won’t feel safe unless she testifies against Macawi; Machado’s actions get him suspended; Henry becomes impatient with Siobhan and gives her an ultimatum.

Ringer “That Woman’s Never Been A Victim In Her Entire Life”

21 Mar

Ringer, if there is one thing I can count on this show for it is the wacky. When the Tarot card fell out of the shooters back pocket I laughed out loud. I guess it could have been a matchbook, but a Tarot card is so much more mysterious?  And kind of Buffyish.

The episode picks up exactly where last week’s ended Agent Guyliner (Machado) is chasing the shooter down the alley, he doesn’t catch him, but is able to rip is back pocket before he gets away. The Tarot card falls out of the ripped pocket, the symbol on the card is The Tower. Our trusty FBI agent informs us it represents one of two things, ruin/failure as in the Tower of Babel, or dualism ( like twins), opposing forces clashing into each other.  He tracks the card to a dry cleaner that was giving them away.

Andrew is alive and in surgery, Juliet calls Henry he comes to the hospital, Bridget tells him Andrew saved her life. This gives Henry pause, perhaps Shiv has been full of it the whole time. Henry confronts Shiv, he calls her a liar and a sociopath, he kicks her to the curb. Whoo-Who he grows a pair. That lasts about a day, he takes her back and tells her he killed Tyler, but it was an accident, they were fighting and Tyler hit his head. He switches Tyler’s flash drive with a fake and takes off, that means Olivia has the fake.

Henry goes one better, he gave the drive to his father in law, to convince him to pull his investments from Martin Charles.  Good Henry.

Andrew wakes up and he and Bridget make up and are all lovey dovey. Best line of the night, when Andrew woke up, Bridget says “hey Superman”, no he’s Mr Fantastic, get your superheros straight. Bridget asks Andrew why he went to Malcolm’s room, he said Olivia suggested a bribe to get rid of him, he took the money and hit the road.  He’ll be back. Bridget tells Andrew about the guy she killed. She explains to him that she didn’t tell him at first because she wasn’t sure he wasn’t involved.  BTW Olivia is in the wind.

What if Andrew is also twins? That would explain how he goes from nice to evil. I wouldn’t put it past this show to pull something like that, they are that crazy.

Catherine, Andrew and Bridget decide New York isn’t a safe place for Juliet and she has to return to Florida with her mom. She doesn’t want to go, she runs away to the beach house. Bridget tracks her down, Juliet confesses the plot she and he mom hatched to Bridget. Bridget heads back to Park Ave to tell Andrew, Machado is there he informs them that one of Macawi’s henchmen has been found dead, with Malcolm’s id. My guess, Malcolm killed the guy. Agent Machado informs Bridget and Andrew that he thinks Macawi’s men are here to kill Shiv because they think she is really Bridget. (good guess)

I think it would be a good twist if Macawi and Shiv were in on the whole thing from the beginning.

Shiv heads off to the hospital to confess all to Andrew, she calls Henry to let him know he arrives just in time to stop her. They are in the hall talking just as Bridget shows up. Lucky for Bridget and Shiv they are both wearing the same coat or Andrew might had figured it out. I guess the baby bump wasn’t that noticeable, no coat can hide that. Ok he just got shot maybe I should give him a pass.

Just to recap, Andrew is ok, Olivia is missing, Flash drive on the lose, Juliet confesses, Henry sort of got his balls back, Shiv’s control is slipping and Malcolm lives to see another day.

God I hope this show gets renewed it is just good old fashioned fun.

The preview for next week made my head hurt, we see a dead body, maybe Olivia, maybe Catherine, Henry being questioned by the police. what the hell is my Andrew doing kissing Catherine!!! Shiv shooting someone, we are led to believe it’s Bridget. But you know how the promo monkey’s edit stuff. I think she is shooting Olivia or maybe Catherine. Maybe Shiv has been working with Catherine to destroy Andrew.

NBC is premiering a new competition reality show called Fashion Star, it sounds like a cross between Project Runway and Shark Tank. Do we really need another competition reality show, enough already. When is this trend going to end in favor good old fashioned scripted TV.

But you all know my heart belongs to Ringer at 9 on The CW. Is Andrew really evil? Who killed Tyler? Henry? Olivia? It’s definitely not Olivia, since they showed her with the flashdrive, that would be way too obvious. Who is the hitman in the loft after? My bet the hitman was hired by Andrew’s partner, Olivia to kill Bridget who she thinks is Siobhan. Check out the previews below and take your guesses to the comments.
