The theme of twins is not new, especially in soaps. I think I watched a Telenovela back then with the same theme, what is it... La Usurpadora
. I don't understand the language, but even I know the gist. The twins switched family because the evil one blackmailing the good one for a crime she didn't commit, the good twin stayed in the evil twin's house with her family, while the evil twin was galloping around the world or something. The good twin made everyone happy; the husband suddenly loved her, the bratty kids also loved her, everyone just falling in love with her until the real evil one returns, and everyone was feeling betrayed.
I remember that show, because I watched it like crazy even when I don't understand the language. I guess evil twins plot is universal!
If this show is the same with that telenovela, I'm gonna laugh my ass off. I'm gonna enjoy it, though. Here's hoping it's different from that telenovela.
The more I watched the pilot, the more I don't hate it. LOL. Seriously, it is soap. I'm a sucker for soaps. But I agree that the pilot seems to have lots of eggs in one basket. Make an omelette with cheese.6 Things About Ringer:
1. Ringer Is Not Buffy | That’s not to say this new CW drama is not entertaining in its own right, but the differences are über-important for devotees of the slayer to know going in. “Those are big shoes to fill, so we hope we do Sarah and the Buffy legacy justice,”
2. This Story Is Not Black-and-White | “We’re a neo-noir thriller, but at the end of the day, it’s a character study about twin sisters and the nature of sibling rivalry,”
3. SMG Fans Can Count on Double the Pleasure | As indicated above, just because Siobhan goes missing in the pilot, Gellar will have plenty of double-duty to pull. “When we start the series, we’re going to be telling Bridget’s story. But we’re playing with time and perspective, so we’ll definitely see Siobhan’s side as well,”
4. These Twisted Sisters Come Loaded With Twists | The pilot episode of Ringer boasts perhaps three episodes’ worth of shocks — at least one of which has yet to be spilled in any teaser clip or promo — and there are no plans to cut back on the jaw-droppers moving forward.
5. Baze Is No More | Life Unexpected fans are in for a shock when they first encounter Kristopher Polaha’s Ringer alter ego — aka the man Siobhan is having an affair with. “Henry is not Baze at all,”
6. You’ve Got to Stay Tuned | Why? Because “just when you think you’ve figured everything out, we’re going to throw a wrench into the equation and take it on a completely different tangent,”
Yeah, yeah. We heard you the first time, this show is not BTVS.
