'Ringer' recap: Lofty Ambitions

Is it me or does Ringer feel like its set in the 1980s? I mean let’s begin with the whole wall-sized photo of Siobhan which, to be fair, I love. Can you imagine if you walked into my apartment and it was just a giant photo of me? Let’s all just pause and think about that for like five secs…okay we’re done. So, also the whole like "We’re living uptown but are buying a loft downtown" feels realz 1980s. Like it feels like a rejected subplot from Wall Street or something.

I would like someone to announce either this show is set in the ‘80s/'90s and/or in Crazytown because that’s where tonight’s episode seemed to fall.

The second episode of Ringer picked up right after last week’s season premiere. Bridget, impersonating her fancypants sister Siobhan, killed a hitman in self-defense and was left with his body in her new aforementioned loft.

Not even joking. Thankfully, there were plenty of tarps around this construction site -- in fact, this episode should have been called "Tarps." They got a lotta action. Someone should check and see if Home Depot or Ty Pennington sponsored this. Read More...
