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

Did You Know?

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 »

Intense, Mysterious Fun
12 November 2012 | by lilcproductionsSee all my reviews

This show will keep you on your toes. You need to see every episode or you will miss crucial plot twists. But it's worth it!

I have to disagree 100% with the negative reviews of the show. The acting, wardrobe, sets, and plot are all great! While every single situation isn't believable, it isn't supposed to be. It's called "suspension of disbelief," and those who aren't capable of it should not be watching TV. Besides, those who are fans of "Buffy" and "Lost" are complaining about the show not being realistic? Give me a break! Watch the first three episodes, and I guarantee you'll be hooked!! You'll spend your whole weekend watching one episode after another. The series is stylish and suspenseful. While some plot twists you might see coming, most will surprise and intrigue you--leaving you wanting more.

Sarah Michelle Gellar plays the dual roles with aplomb, clearly delineating the personality differences between the two. Pohala and Groffard are also excellent.

All in all, the show is fun, fun, fun to watch even if it isn't the most realistic drama of all time. The biggest shortcoming is the CW canceling it before resolving the story. Big mistake. I just hope enough fans watch and comment on the series to motivate the show's creators to wrap up the story in a second season, a mini-series, or a TV movie.
