Ringer Premiere

Ringer, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar debuted the other night on the CW and I couldn't help but tune in (if you missed it, it reairs Friday. Check your listings). It wasn't a bad show, but definitely out there. It stars Sarah as twin sisters who have been estranged for awhile. One is a big city rich girl and the other is a stripper and former addict who witnessed a murder.

Bridget doesn't realize just how complicated her twin's life is until she wakes up one afternoon on the boat she and her sister were in to discover she's gone. All that's left is a pill bottle with a wedding band and engagement ring lying on the floor. Bridget jumps overboard, trying to find her sister after being unable to get anyone on the radio. She finally decides that the best way to get out of her own complicated situation (while also avoiding questions she can't answer about her sister's disappearance and apparent suicide) is to take her place. Boy was she wrong...

Siobhan just appears to have the best life ever. She and her husband don't get along. She's having an affair with her best friend's husband. And the kicker? She's pregnant. Her stepdaughter doesn't seem too thrilled with her either. And wait til you see the ending scene...

Again, it's not a bad show. It's just a bit odd and kind of feels like the type of show that needs to grow on you. I also have to confess to thinking I was actually watching a Buffy rerun during the opening scene. Having not watched many of Sarah's other roles, I also just really noticed that some of the mannerisms and vocal inflections I had assumed were the Buffy character are really her own. It was just slightly distracting and adding to that initial impression of watching a Buffy ep. Either way, I'm intrigued and looking forward to the next one. So what did you all think? Did you enjoy it? Hate it? Think it will grow on you? Comment back and let me know!
