Bye-Bye Ugly Betty!
I am quite sad that this show has been cancelled and that the last episode has all ready aired. However, having lasted 4 seasons, I’m not sure how much longer I wanted it to continue given the crazy story-lines and changes that have happened all ready.
Why I liked the Show: The combination of different characters with different backgrounds, personalities and goals was refreshing. I feel that the characters all had a lot of depth and were fully developed. The series finale wrapped things up well with all main characters yet left some things up to the imagination – such as what happens between Daniel and Betty.
Character(s) I most liked: Besides Betty, I really liked Christina who used to work at Mode Magazine in the clothing department and who later became a fashion designer in Scotland. I didn’t feel like they gave Mark much development early on in the series but later – season 3 when he and Betty get into the YETI program, he and Betty get along much better and we see different sides of him.
Favourite Story-lines: Alex/Alexis played by Rebecca Romijn – I didn’t like every single twist with this character but a lot of interesting stories/episodes came out when this character was on the show. I liked when the family had to go to Mexico because Betty’s dad almost killed someone and was using a dead person’s Social Security Number. I didn’t like when Justin (Betty’s nephew) was a bad kid after his dad died.
Least Favourite story-lines: The new son – of Claire/Hartley was very boring and unnecessary. I didn’t like any of the Henry plots, especially when Charlie and a baby were involved.
And now some Ugly Betty
Fashion: The costume designers for the show are Eduardo Castro and Patricia Field (who worked on Sex and the City)
