“‘Ringer’ ... makes the calculated error of hurrying through most of its better plot twists in this first episode,” he wrote. “Further episodes now seem like a tedious and even redundant prospect.”
Hitfix writer Alan Sepinwall calls the show “stiff and dull, the characters (including both twins) thin, the situations laughable—even though it isn't trying to be campy fun.”
And AOL’s Maureen Ryan says: “Without the kind of sprightly, witty dialogue that 'Buffy' fans will recall from that show, Gellar's performances as Bridget and Siobhan seem a little wan, quite frankly.”
