Fug the Show: Ringer, episode 15


Does it matter what anyone else wore? The point is really what Logan Echolls DIDN’T wear.

Lots more waist-up shots this week, and a continued downturn in vexing couture, but that’s okay: Great outerwear, makeup envy, a continuity error, ANOTHER BUFFY PUNCH, and the morphing emotions of Henry’s sack are keeping me in long-winded business.

Fug the Show: Ringer, episode 13


First, a note: Because of Fashion Week, I got behind, so the fug-cap of the first Ringer episode I missed went up yesterday (read it! I know they’re long, but bookmark where you left off and then pick it up again! No worries!) and now THIS one is the one that aired LAST Tuesday, so we are all caught up. Until tonight, when there is ANOTHER new one that promises Truths Will Be Revealed. Although this show reveals about three truths before breakfast, so that’s not so different.

It was before watching this episode that I learned the actress who plays Juliet is Lea Thompson’s daughter. And now that I know it, I can’t believe I ever DIDN’T know it. There is so much Lorraine in her face. Granted, Juliet would’ve punched Biff in the nads herself and been done with it, but the genetic legacy is still obvious. Clothes-wise, it’s mostly more Andrea Roth and her Coat of the Cave Bear, but SMG does work in a few extra ruffles to put on the “they’re hiding a pregnancy” pile. It’s not even that she LOOKS pregnant; they just shoot her like she’s got a time bomb strapped to her abdomen.

Well, the Great Poor Twin Bangs Experiment of 2012 failed spectacularly last week, so we’re back to Sarah Michelle Gellar’s regular awesome hair/face combo, which is welcome. The title of this episode was, “What are you doing here, ho-bag?” It was brilliantly applicable to, I’d say, just about every other scene. There are SHENANIGANS AHOY, friend, and more gruffudding than you can quake a jaw at, so come on in and let’s ring this bell.

Well, now that Rich Twin and Poor Twin are in the same city, the show ran into the problem of how viewers could tell at a glance which twin was which. The solution was a banged wig for Poor Twin, who now looks the part. Shouldn’t Rich Twin be the one changing her appearance in ill-advised but rash ways? She’s the one with the raging pregnancy hormones and desire to fake her own death, after all.

Does it even MATTER what Sarah Michelle Gellar was wearing, when FINALLY she took it off and did the Welsh Rumba with Ioan? And yes, I made up that euphemism. For fun, I Googled it and all it came up with was an English-to-Welsh translator and an ad for Roombas. But, even with this carnal victory for Poor Twin, we’ll still have to take a look at what he ripped off of her, and what she put on afterward. The list includes sunglasses, a blazer, and a look of remarkable impassivity regarding Henry Sad-Sack’s follicular issues. It’s the last Ringer until January, y’all, so take my hand and let’s do this.

There was some plot here, and we are back to a minimum of outfit changes, but I don’t want to leave you in suspense about the most momentous development of all: Henry Sad-Sack’s twins EXIST. WE HAVE PROOF. I KNOW. They must be so happy not to be in story purgatory anymore.
