As a cosmetologist in training I absolutely love this show. Amanda and Marc are SO FUNNY. I love that America Ferrara is still pretty even with all the get-up. Although the plot is slow to progress, it still keeps my attention and draws me in.
As of 2./29/2012 still Ditto:
Fun to watch and a great cast, Mark and Amanda being my faves in cast..
their comical timing is exquisite, I am revisiting the whole series Seasons 1 thru 4 and enjoying it all over again, still a very good sitcom.
I am so loving the way these people have put together such a wonderfully awesome ensemble cast of characters to tackle so many true life facets. Even controversial issues are given new life and allow for a fresh perspective beneath the seemingly [Beautiful] unpretty elements addressed in innovative ways. Even though some aspects are touchy and a tad inappropriate for my teen they are not terribly overplayed or lingered upon excessively. Each week we are racing to the screen so that we can see America, Vanessa, Rebecca and the rest of the cast of Ugly (Beautiful) Betty!!!!! Kudos!
(by Julie, William's wife :) ) My best friend has loved this series, but I can't watch it because I'm at work the nights it is on. Now, I'm able to rent it and I am hooked. I love America Ferrera as Betty - she is smart, beautiful, truthful (a rariety these days) and someone people could only wish to have as a real friend. Thanks for this show.
at first i didn't want to watch this show because i thought that it was just making fun of an ugly girl. after watching it i love this show!!! i'm now addicted!!! my favorite characters are marc and amanda!<<they're sooooo funny!! this show is hysterical!!
