Sarah Michelle Gellar’s new CW drama lands at the tail-end of this year’s countdown for a reason – it’s absolutely a guilty pleasure. But we’re putting the emphasis firmly on ‘pleasure’ – at its best, Ringer is a brilliantly fun concoction of absurd scenarios, unlikely plot twists and hammy acting.
Our favorite character is the terribly English Andrew – Ioan Gruffudd’s performance puts the ‘stiff’ in ‘stiff upper lip’. If you were looking for Buffy 2.0 then you were always going to be disappointed, but if you were just after some dumb fun, then you couldn’t beat Ringer in 2011.
