Diva Dan and I have no TV Service, IE Cable or Satellite. It’s a personal choice due to the cost of having this service with rarely having the desire to watch TV. So we are out of the entertainment loop. We do have a TV and a DVD Player where we watch Movies and TV Series. Ugly Betty is one of them.
LOVED Season 1… FELL IN LOVE WITH SEASON 2… THEN SEASON 3 came and the love I had for the show started to dwindle. I loved how they let her move out of her family home and go on… but the show has been getting predictable. You want Betty to succeed and yet falls backwards due to family obligation instead of really putting her best foot forward. I was devastated when she closed her apartment door for the last time.
I started to see the commonality in the plot line. She screws up royally and yet keeps her job. Is that realistic? Sending photos to the Paparazzi with no repercussion because she fixed it seems highly unlikely.
I thought the wardrobe dept was putting BETTY FURTHER BACK outfit wise in Season 3. I was disappointed that they made her look more clown like than someone struggling to put together fashion. I think they could have tried better to have a killer shirt but the pants not matching. That’s more realistic than the entire outfit, including socks with heels being worn.
Amanda by far lost her edge in Season 3 with her quick witted personality. The writers really tamed her down for too many episodes. She was the comic relief of the show in my opinion. Marc being the 2nd.
I love Whilemena but when does so much blackmail become predictable? I loved how they gave her personality outside of the scheming. Eventually we get sick of all the scheming.
We’ve just learned that Ugly Betty Season 4 is the final. yes… several months after he national media has told everyone so. Knowing it’s ending… gives us a new perspective.
I’ve now watched 3 episodes of Season 4 and I am not going to buy the final season. Marc who is usually over the top is “over acting” the part as far as I am concerned. He’s acting like a school girl and yet he was supposed to be considered as an editor candidate. I think the writers or whomever is asking him to act the way he is jeopardizing Marc’s creditability. You can’t even take him seriously even when you are suppose to.
I’m not sure what happened to the writers of this show. I think some of the plot lines are too unrealistic. We could relate to Betty in Season 1 and 2… but then they started steering away from the personality that was built for Betty. People change and grow up… but they appeared to make her step backward instead of progressing forward.
Having just watched BLUE ON BLUE last night… Her acting and the whole scene scenario of the restaurant of Hilda interfering I think is unrealistic. I kept saying to Diva Dan… this is a scene right out of Brady Bunch! I think the scene was fine… but I think they over embellished the feelings and emotions to a degree it was not believable.
I’m saddened by the end of Ugly Betty but I think it couldn’t have continued based on the writing that was set out.
