Fug the Show: Ringer


This week’s episode was all about Ioan’s facial repertoire, as he grapples with the reveal of his Ponzi scheme. All that blah-blah about the SEC would’ve been way more interesting if he’d been running a Fonzie scheme instead, so that’s how I am going to think of it. Beats a Potsie scheme, anyway.

    Only 2 slides in and was cracking up.

    I have to say that HSS (or HDS) is totally having an “O” face.

    When SMG took off the coat right after slide 11 (I think) she totally looked to have a baby in the belly. I am now firmly on team Knocked-Up.

    Also, why is EVERYONE on this show knocked up? Have they never heard of birth control?

      Well, only one person is — Rich Twin.

        Spoiler: The dead stripper/informer was…unless that changed at the end (I fell asleep). I guess it just seems like the talk about it a lot.

        Also, RT was knocked up that other time (some how in my head that counts as 2 different people). I feel like every thing revolves around being knocked up. I expect Olivia and Juliette to get knocked up any day now :)

    I floved that pink coat. AND I thought to myself while watching. OOOooo… I hope the Fug Girls highlight that awesome coat.

    How disappointed was I when that tarp showed up. From so very right, to so very wrong. *sigh*

      When I saw Poor Twin wearing that bright pink blouse, I was hoping for a Pepto-Bismol joke on GFY! Man, was that blouse PINK. :)

      SMG keeps wearing loose clothing on this show and in real life (like when she does talk show appearances), I keep expecting to read about a real life pregnancy. If she doesn’t want people assuming she’s pregnant, she should try wearing something that doesn’t have an empire waist. SMG is so petite that any kind of weight gain is going to look like a baby bump. LOL

    I now find myself hoping that Henry Winkler will guest star on this show as Eyeliner Guy’s father.
    And that somehow, that leads him to an interaction with The Grandmaster Of Gruffudd.
    Because AAAAAYYYYY, the Gruff’s Udd could learn a thing or two from The Fonz.
    Well done, as always, Heather.

    Alas, as a resident of Laramie, I can attest that there is no strip club here. I love that there is a Wyoming connection to this lame show, though.

      I think it’s funny how we’re supposed to think that these strip clubs are seedy places, yet Poor Twin was wearing the most demure-looking black blouse when she was working as a stripper. Poor Twin is the most conservatively dressed ex-stripper on TV! Catherine dresses more like a stripper than Bridget!

      And truly, the best part about watching Ringer is reading Heather’s recaps afterwards.

    i haven’t see the recent eps, but from the fugcaps i would definitely agree that SMG is gestating, even though she denied it to you all a few weeks ago. if you are reading this SMG, congrats!!!!

    btw, my previous comment in no way means that i think SMG looks big, because she very much doesn’t, but is based on the idea that there is no other explanation for all the empire waisted, flowy peasant tops, and coats as lap covers, if there isn’t a baby bump to disguise.

      I totally agree — I don’t think she looks big, but they are dressing and shooting her as if she’s got something to hide. Right down to putting her in a strip club AS A STRIPPER and having her in the Gentlemen’s Club equivalent of a muumuu.

    I don’t even watch the show, but your recaps are HILARIOUS! Thank you for them.

    At slide 28 I audibly gasped, then burst out laughing. At slide 31 I went “NOT HIS MURDERER NOT HIS MURDERER!” and then got to laugh again at gruffudy mcfuddydud’s gruffudy face. I sincerely approve of this post.

    OMG, I was getting so excited towards the end of this slideshow I was bouncing in my chair and clapping my hands; I can’t wait to see what happens next!!

    And, yeah, it’s a good thing I’m alone in my office.

    I don’t know about you folks, but ALL my wearable green tarps are Empire waist. And I pronounce it “ahm-Peer”, to boot.

    My God that last slide is SO HOT. I would tag that onto a more intelligent sentiment if it wasn’t Friday afternoon and my brain wasn’t mush. But it is, and it is. So: THAT LAST SLIDE IS SO HOT.

    Thank you, Heather, a thousand times thank you.

    I think Malcolm, Ioan and FBI ARJFA need to sort out this whole crazy mess with a jelly wrestle. 3 seriously beautiful men on one (seriously silly/awesome) show; combined shirtlessness needs to occur.

    I love all the references to Murder, She Wrote. I hearted that show pretty hard, although I never could figure out why anyone invited her anywhere, since a murder most foul would always follow (on that same token, I could not figure out why anyone would commit a murder when Jessica Fletcher and her typewriter were in residence, because everyone knows you’d get busted for that shit!)

    That Tarp. My first thought was that it looked so much like a green garbage back and the empire waist made me think it was RT at first. So FUGLY!

    What I meant was a Green garbage bag
