Every fall new shows are created and only very few are renewed for another season and some barely even make it past a few episodes. This season I started watching a couple new shows on the CW. Once I heard that two of my favorite television actors were starring in their own shows I got super excited. First, the new show Ringer, which stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, who I grew up watching in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my ultimate favorite show. And second, The Hart of Dixie, which stars Rachel Bilson, who everyone loved on the O.C.
Ringer, is about a recovering drug addict, Bridget (Sarah Michelle Gellar), who witnesses a murder, and out of fear seeks out her estranged identical twin sister, Siobhan (also Sarah Michelle Gellar). Once she does, Siobhan disappears, leaving Bridget to believe her dead, thus taking over her identity and kushy life on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The show is surprisingly intriguing and mysterious. Siobhan is still alive and on the other side of the world trying to mess with Bridget, which makes me curious as to what her true intentions are and keeps me watching every Tuesday night at 9pm on the CW. (Also starring Ioan Gruffudd, Kristoffer Polaha, and Nestor Carbonell)
The Hart of Dixie, is about a young doctor, Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), who moves to the middle of nowhere to take over a medical practice her father left her after he passed. The New York City native tries hard to blend in with the southern culture in this cute show about a girl trying to get to know herself and find her heart in what she does. There are a number of potential love interests for Hart and it’s fun to watch all the sexual tension. Though it sounds cheesey, Bilson is lovable and fashionable as always and I keep watching to see what other quirky things she’ll do to embarrass herself more every Monday night at 9pm, only on the CW. (Also starring Jaime King, Scott Porter, Cress Williams, and Wilson Bethel)
