Yeah, yeah, I know, I said I wasn't going to be reviewing Ringer anymore, but I watched this weeks episode and can't keep my trap shut. *grins*

Anyway, as per usual, there be SPOILERs under the cut!

For those who want to know what I thought, but don't want the SPOILERS - The truth is this episode WAS better then the previous two, but that's not exactly saying much. Still it was enough that I'll at least watch again next week before I decide on leaving or staying, but despite that I can't give this more then a MEH: This episode was neither horrible or great ranking.


Ringer 1x03 If You Ever Want A French Lesson

The truth is this episode WAS better then the previous two, but that's not exactly saying much. Still it was enough that I'll at least watch again next week before I decide on leaving or staying, but despite that I can't give this more then a MEH: This episode was neither horrible or great ranking.

However, the truth is I really wanted to give this one a Good: Could've been better, but me likey anyway ranking simply because some of Bridget's stupid moves finally started to bite her (or at least poor Malcom) on the ass. At this point, she's just lucky the FBI man is as stupid as she is - really when Bridget "disappeared" he should have stayed on Malcom instead of bull-dogging "Siobhan." That really would've been the logical direction to take anyway.

Kinda sad when the criminal is better at tracking then the supposed good guy FBI agent who's only correct because of the writing. I'm serious, while Bridget is Siobhan, the FBI guy can't actually know that, so the smarter option would be to stick like glue to those who actually knew and was close to Bridget, but instead (thanks to writing) the FBI idiot gets a wild hair up his butt, and, of course, he's right, but not because he's doing anything logical or sense-making.

But damn it all! I kinda want to know more about Siobhan now. Yes, at this point, I'm really more interested in Siobhan and her plans/plot then I am Bridget and her conflicts within Siobhan life. However, I suspect information about Siobhan will be slow to none in coming, because this show seems to think Bridget/Andrew is where its at, and most of the viewers seem to agree on this, but I'm honestly finding the whole thing boring - would've been more interesting if he had been the one trying to kill Siobhan.

Still I really liked the scene where Siobhan finally learns she's pregnant and calls Henry (labeled evil by the fandom) but is actually smart enough not to say anything she just sits there listening to his voice. For whatever reason she clearly loves him more then her husband (and that does make Henry's actions early on with Bridget much less creepy, at least to me), and I admit that I'm (again unlike most Ringer viewers) much more interested in Siobhan/Henry then I am Bridget/Andrew.

Of course, at the end of the day, S/H probably isn't all that interesting either. What is interesting is that Siobhan clearly came to the same conclusion that Bridget did (that Andrew is the one trying to kill her - the lawyer indicates that she was scared of him), but unlike Bridget she didn't write her conclusion off and start trying to make amends. The truth is, I'm slightly more inclined to trust Siobhan on this one, because Siobhan knows him, unlike Bridget. But maybe they are both wrong, and Siobhan simply disappeared before she could figure that out. However, for whatever reason I just don't trust Andrew, and I'm really not sure why since as near as I can tell everyone else watching Ringer loves and adores him.

So, yeah, once again I'm interested enough to tune in again next week, but really I think I've finally realized that this show was never meant to appeal to me. Not truly anyway. I'm not a big fan of soaps for soaps sake - I don't mind shows with soapy elements, but soaps as a genre just aren't really my thing. Meaning that despite the fact that I like Gellar and like the concept of twins this show seems designed more for people who like soaps and Gellar. And that's not a crime or anything - people like what they like and don't like what they don't like. It just means that this show probably shouldn't be trying to impress/keep me as a viewer, because I may not be the type of viewer this show actually wants to appeal to anyway.
