Ugly Betty

Did anyone else watch this?

Did anyone else love it as much as I did?

I loved America Ferrera (is that her right last name?), I loved Vanessa Williams and her assistant, I loved loved LOVED Gina Gershon as Fabia, I loved the Scottish co-worker, I loved her little brother and sister, and I loved those brightly colored sets in the office!

Oh, and Salma Hayek's cameo as the actress on the telenovella!

LOVE. IT.

Yeah, uh ... it was okay.





I had high expectations for it, and was so pleased it actually lived up to those expecations.

Yes, I watched it this evening (after all the hype). I liked it! I knew "Fabia" looked familiar, I just couldn't place the name (Gershon).

Loved it, very charming. America Ferrera was in this fantastic movie called Real Women Have Curves, if you haven't seen it run now and rent it.

Ugly Betty is such a good show for teenage girls, and for women in general. I hope ABC will give it a chance, I think it has a much more limited audience than some other shows.

Salma Hayek is one of the producers

Real Women Have Curves was a great movie.

I liked her in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants as well, even though she wasn't my favorite character.

It was enjoyable but realistically I don't think it will last. It seemed a bit over the top with corniness.

I love Ugly Betty. Sure, it's silly and soapy, but it's got heart and style. But I relate to it becuase I have had a job somewhat like Betty's. Her situation is exaggerated for effect, but it's not totally unrealistic.

I loved the interaction between Betty and her father; you can see the love between them and how he has such faith in her and her dreams.

Am I nuts, or am I the only one who thought Betty's boyfriend and her editor looked somewhat alike?

I didn't get to watch the pilot, so I'm going to see if I can see it soon, but I did see the 2nd half of the 2nd episode and it looked really good.

Betty was very believable.
I've seen Betty la fea, and I liked that. Pretty sure I'm going to love this too.

I wished though, it wasn't in competition with Earl and the Office. It's hard to choose sometimes.

America Ferrara is kind of Honduran...

I watched the original (Betty la Fea) show like... 6 years ago??... it was cool and it was one of the most popular tv series in Colombia. I don't like the mexican version, thought.

Colombian tv networks produce good soap operas because they have a great sense of humor and original themes, it is not always the poor girl with the rich guy and stuff like that.

Loved Betty again this week. It's my new favorite show.

I'm also a My Name is Earl fan. It's tough to choose between the two. It would be easier if either Betty or Earl were available on iTunes (hint, hint, Apple ...)
