YMMV: Ringer
  • Acceptable Ethnic Targets: Averted. Bodaway Macawi, the evil crime boss who killed one of his own strippers, is a Native American.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: 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.
  • Holy Shit Quotient: The season finale.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Ringer struggled in America, but was the top-rated CW show in Canada.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Some younger viewers tuned in just to see Maya Bennett as Andrew's daughter
  • The Scrappy: 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.
    • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Henry's display of Genre Savvy with the paternity test and leaving Siobhan completely broke as punishment for her constant lies seems to have raised his standing among some fans.
  • Special Effects Failure /Narm: Behold!
    • This video from The Soup 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.
  • What an Idiot: 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.
