Ringer, "P.S. You're an Idiot": a comedy of errors

Quick Take: Ringer, "P.S. You're an Idiot"
I know, Ringer. I know. 


Review: Ringer, “P.S. You’re an Idiot”
(S0115) I figured it out last night, the problem with Ringer that is. Or rather, the newest addition to the list of problems that I personally have with Ringer. It probably ties into the fact that I’m a big marshmallow who just wants everyone to be besties forever, but c’mon, who am I supposed to cheer for on this show? Everyone is a douchebag.  

Okay, fine. Bridget. I can cheer for Bridget. But I need more than Bridget. I’m sorry that I’m needy but I do. I went with Andrew for awhile, but with the revelation that he’s masterminding a ponzi scheme, Mr. Fantastic gets his name added to the slime ball list as well. Great.

Our plot continues to dive into the depths of what-the-hell-is-going-on when Siobhan is revealed to be preggers with twins, Juliet’s MILF goes on the run with Mr. C (then screws him both literally and figuratively), and Bridget is pretty much okay with marrying Andrew while masquerading as her sister. Luckily, we are saved from debating how much damage this does to Saint Bridget’s character by Malcolm stepping in to inform her that Andrew might be a Bad Guy. Oh noes.

So things are getting crazy and while it’s not a good kind of crazy, I’m fully committed to seeing this through. I know Ringer is supposed to be thriller, but right now, it’s one of my favorite comedies on television.
