Storyline

Bridget is six months sober and starting to get her life back on track when she becomes the sole witness to a professional hit. She flees to New York, telling no one. In New York, Bridget reunites with her estranged twin, Siobhan. Wealthy, pampered and seemingly happily married, Siobhan lives what appears to be a fairy tale life. The identical twin sisters seem to be mending their frayed relationship, until Siobhan disappears overboard during a boat trip the two take together, and Bridget makes the split decision to take on her sister's identity. She discovers shocking secrets, not only about her sister and her marriage, but other secrets as well. Bridget soon realizes she is no safer as Siobhan than she is as herself. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

There are several possible meanings for the show's title. The most straightforward definition is "something that strongly resembles a second thing." There have been at least two other filmed thrillers about twins that also used this meaning of "ringer" in their titles (1988's Dead Ringers (1988), starring Jeremy Irons twice, and 1964's Dead Ringer (1964), starring Bette Davis twice). A "ringer" can also be a synonym for an impostor or someone posing as someone else, just as Bridget pretends to be Siobhan. The third reference that the show's title makes is to the homophone "wringer," which can mean a difficult or painful situation. See more »

Crazy Credits

The title credits utilize special effects in that the "N" in Ringer splits into two opposite pieces symbolizing the twin sisters that are often opposed to each other. The written credits that appear under the title are split but become one piece, symbolizing the sisters taking each other's place to appear as one person. See more »

No Season 2 ? ? ? ?
12 November 2014 | by z_laja13See all my reviews

This is absolute cracker. This show is great, smart and most important very, very underrated. My favorite shows are "Revenge", "The Americans", "Blacklist", "Hostages", "The Lying Game", and "Ringer" is beaten only by Revenge, but Revenge is something special, 72 (at this time) episodes on HIGHEST LEVEL.

Sarah play twin sisters, but she's great. After 3-4 episodes, I without any doubt known who is Bridgett and who is Siobahn. All cast GREAT, really great acting. Story is strong and this show is never slow or boring.

This review is only because, I can't believe there is NO second season. Please make second season, this show deserved that.
