Deception/impersonation is often a very interesting backbone of a narrative.
In the short lived television series Ringer (2011-2012), Bridget and Siobhan (Sarah Michelle Gellar) are estranged twin sisters. Bridget is trying to put her life back together after getting out of rehab six months ago and being the sole witness to a murder. Siobhan, on the other hand, has it all. She has a loving marriage to Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd) and lives a comfortable life. In an attempt to rebuild their fractured relationship, the sisters go on a short boat trip. Then Siobhan falls overboard and Bridget makes the decision to pretend to be her sister.
Bridget will soon learn that her sister’s charmed life is not all that charmed. Underneath the appearance of perfection are dark secrets that could endanger Bridget’s life.
I honestly enjoyed this series. It was dark, slightly twisted and never quite gave the audience a straight answer. Unfortunately, like many shows, it just didn’t find the audience to continue beyond the first season.
Do I recommend it? Yes.
