    Its a cheesy soup opera that belongs on daytime. Gellar´s acting is very wooden and you never end up believing that she is playing two different characters(she has trouble with one). The dialogue had me laughing at times, the plot lines are unbelievable even for the most gullible of viewers. Ultimately its a show you want to like but it falls flat on just about every angle.

    What was only touted as the new face of television Noir in the wake of Veronica Mars fame has only been a true disappointment this show can only muster up enough strength to be a fourth rate soap opera. This show lacks the sly smart Noir of Veronica Mars or the soapy charm of Dynasty or Twin Peaks. The worst part of this show is that it suffers from Extra Horrible Writing, TerribleWhat was only touted as the new face of television Noir in the wake of Veronica Mars fame has only been a true disappointment this show can only muster up enough strength to be a fourth rate soap opera.

    Skidding through twists and turns aplenty, the intentionally soapy plot generates a lot of fun froth, but Gellar has a hard time playing one troubled and complicated woman, much less two.

    The CW's tale of an evil twin and an even eviler twin, is devious doppelganger drama at its best.

    I'll admit that between the CW and ABC Family, I'm having trouble keeping track of the duos who've been separated at birth, switched at birth, given up at birth and in the case of Ringer, apparently just found themselves drifting apart into different worlds, but by halfway through tonight's pilot, I felt as if I'd seen this one before.
