That Fabia designer reminded me of Donatella "stupido! stupido!"
I like this show it's cute and funny. Kind of reminded me of another spanish soap "La Fea Mas Bella" but not quite the same plot.

I noticed that too! There were a lot of similarities--- working for a magazine, fetching food for a mean boss, missing someone's birthday.... still, I liked it and will definitely tune in next week!

^so true, the colombian actress was made to actually have bad skin, a unibrow, really oily hair, it went beyond just braces and glasses and bad fashion sense

I thought this show was cute fluff, even though I figured out what's going to happen.

I hope it does well

I feel that this, "Ugly Betty" is just bad fluff. I saw Salma Hayek on Oprah talking about it. Salma lauded it as a show that paves the way for younger teenagers or something.

The show basically is about making fun of, "Ugly Betty". Otherwise, the jokes wouldn't center around how fat, obnoxious and nerdy she is in comparison to those beautiful and thin New Yorkers.

Furthermore, why is the show called, "Ugly Betty?" If it's bent on promoting inner-beauty?

The trailer used the same song that the Devil Wears Prada used in it's own beginning. It's like a generic copycat.

The Devil Wears Prada had such a gentle, moral ending that people understood. I left the theater actually contemplating the final theme of the movie.

Just my two cents.

Who would've thunk it? It's Ellen De Generes's favorite TV show

"Ugly Betty" is great, the cast is perfect and the story is very plausible. And it is not a copycat of "Devil Wears Prada". Salma Hayek has been wanting to do this show for years now, even before the book was published. Why is it so hard to recognise that this is an original latin story played to the american audiences by latin actors and producers? What's so wrong about that?

PS: America Ferrera is . She's such a great actress and a great example for young girls everywhere.

Haven't seen it yet, but I want to cause I'm already familiar with the Indian version Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi ("There Is No One Like Jassi")
