Ugly Betty is a really special show. It's funny, and exciting and a bit surreal. It's nice with the theme of an "ugly" girl and her struggle to fit in at a "beautiful" place.
One thing I've been thinking about is whether they will do a makeover of her or not. Most movies always has the ending where the ugly duckling turns in the a pretty swan. But this show seems different, I don't think they will change her. And probably they shouldn't. The whole point of the show is that she isn't ugly, she's the most beutiful girl there, because she has a good heart and soul, and the pretty models are shallow and evil and therefor ugly. So it would be a bit sell out-ish if they did change her.
But some part of me wants her to bloom out and she'll get a tight dress and adapt to the standards so she'll show all the models that she is like them too. I mean America Ferrera is gorgeus. Betty can't have the braces on forever. You do put them in to make your teeth straight and thus pretty (or get a better bite, like in my own case. Had braces when I was a kid). Maybe they can do an episode about it. Something like she thinks Henry would like her more if you looked "pretty" like the other women. The conclusion could be that Henry says that she is beautiful as she is and don't need to change - and he loves her for that. That would rock!
The show is awesome, 5/5 any day. Really funny and cool.
