* AcceptableEthnicTargets: Averted. Bodaway Macawi, the evil crime boss who killed one of his own strippers, is a Native American.
* FanPreferredCouple: Bridget/Andrew is currently this for a lot of fans.
** Well, they really ''are'' a couple. But fans are rooting for them to be a completely honest couple where Andrew knows that Bridget is Bridget.
* HolyShitQuotient: The season finale.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: ''Ringer'' struggled in America, but was the top-rated CW show in Canada.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Some younger viewers tuned in just to see [[SuiteLifeOnDeck Maya Bennett]] as Andrew's daughter
* TheScrappy: Henry. Fans '''do not''' like him. Television Without Pity has christened him "Tool Belt", meaning that he's not just a tool, he's a whole belt of tools.
** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Henry's display of GenreSavvy with [[spoiler:the paternity test and leaving Siobhan completely broke as punishment for her constant lies]] seems to have raised his standing among some fans.
* SpecialEffectsFailure /{{Narm}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldrbyq8uH8c&feature=player_embedded Behold!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqCNgZqwSI0 This video]] from ''TheSoup'' says it all.
** It's very noticeable how few times you can see Bridget and Siobhan's faces in the same shot, especially when compared to flashbacks to their childhood where they're played by real twins.
* WhatAnIdiot: Machado actually warns Bodaway that his bar is going to be raided in a few hours, giving him plenty of time to get rid of any evidence, for no apparent reason.
** Machado drives up to Bodaway to go "ha, ha, we're going to put you behind bars" and tells him it's not because of Bridget. He might as well have painted a bullseye on Malcolm.
