Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to TV, playing twin sisters Bridget and Siobhan, neither of which is anything like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Recovering addict and mob target Bridget takes over wealthy Siobhan's life after her sister disappears, but she learns Siobhan's life wasn't simple, or perfect, or safe.
The pilot made me long for "Buffy." I'll watch a few more episodes, but I'm not expecting to be roped in.
