Ringer: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Ringer: Season 1 (2011)



Critic Consensus: Two Sarah Michelle Gellars make the dull Ringer worse rather than better, with mediocre suspense that turns silly and unbelievable.

Tv Season Info

A woman who witnessed a professional hit hides out by assuming the life of her rich identical twin (both played by Sarah Michelle Gellar) after the twin disappears overboard on a boat trip. The sister's seemingly fairy-tale existence turns out to be far more complicated than it appears, however, as it turns out someone's targeted her for elimination.

Critic Reviews for Ringer: Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (20)

Sarah Michelle Gellar's new drama truly deserves a bigger viewership. The tension is rich, the characters are intriguing -- especially the identical twins she plays -- and the actress uncannily brings both the women to distinct life.

For those within the CW's core audience - the 18-34-year-olds who love Vampire Diaries - Ringer may be the next step.

The lousy effects that put the twins in the same room are sloppy, and the story line - ripped from a cheesy daytime soap - is worse.

What it needs is more overall electricity.

It's inert, lackluster and a trifle old-fashioned.

Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to TV Tuesday night in a show that could be a lot of soapy fun, but may require more work than some TV viewers will want to put in.
