I am hooked on a TV show called ‘Ringer’. This is available on Netflix streaming.This is such a good show, I was so disappointed to find that it has been cancelled by the Network.

I find myself wanting to watch two or three episodes in a row. The ending of each one, always leaves you hanging.Ringer Poster

Check it out.

Ringer (2011–2012)

A young woman on the run from the mob poses as her wealthy twin sister to try and evade them, but soon discovers that her sister has a price on her head as well.

Bridget Kelly (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is a recovering drug addict and stripper in Wyoming. She is under the protection of FBI Agent Victor Machado (Nestor Carbonell), having agreed to testify against her employer, local crime boss Bodaway Macawi (Zahn McClarnon), who she witnessed committing murder. Fearing that Macawi, who has already murdered several witnesses linking him to previous crimes, will also kill her, Bridget flees to New York to meet her estranged twin sister Siobhan (also played by Gellar).

Soon after arriving in New York, Siobhan, who had kept her sister’s existence secret from her family, appears to commit suicide by jumping into the ocean. Bridget then assumes Siobhan’s identity and tries to fit in among Siobhan’s wealthy social circle, including Siobhan’s husband Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd), stepdaughter Juliet (Zoey Deutch), best friend Gemma (Tara Summers), and Gemma’s husband Henry (Kristoffer Polaha) with whom Siobhan had been having an affair. The only one who knows that Bridget is passing as Siobhan is Bridget’s Narcotics Anonymous sponsor Malcolm (Mike Colter). Bridget’s life becomes more complicated as she discovers that her sister was hiding secrets of her own and that someone is trying to kill Siobhan as well.

It’s really not that complicated, but there are lots of twists and turns. The action moves in many directions. First might be a scene in Wyoming and then it will skip to what is happening in Paris. Then it will jump to New York, where the ‘action’ will be taking place in the walk in closet of the Martin’s fabulous condo.

It keeps you on your toes and it requires a little thinking. I have been enjoying this show. There are 22 episodes in Season One. Each one is about 45 minutes, so this could keep you busy for three weeks, if you only watched one at a time.
