This 'hit US show' is coming to the UK soon. The adverts look pretty good.

Any US fans here? Is it worth watching?

Thanks in advance.

This is my very favorite show of the season so far. Even beat out Nip/Tuck for me which is hard to do! You should definitely watch it. The pilot is amazing and gets you hooked. Every single episode has been good, none of them let me down! Watch it for sure!

I love the show. It's mostly comedy but they mix up some drama in there very nicely.

Some chick with braces not fitting in, or something.

It's the holidays so I'm on a total US TV download binge. :tape: Once Heroes has finished I'm gonna need some new stuff. :drool:

My 14BGB Grey's Anatomy Season 2 should be done in like... 4 days. :o

So, like a TV version of Devil Wears Prada then? Sounds kinda similar.

The adverts are as funny as hell. :lol:

The only thing I know is that Eric Mabius :drool: is on this show and it earned him a spot in The Advocate. He's so @#%@ing hot, I might have to start watching.

Never heard of it. Then again, I pretty much ignore network tv. :shrug:

Love the show but I am not all that keen on Vanessa Williams in the show. I'm a big fan of hers but I haven't quite warmed up to her as Wilhemina.

America on the other hand is an absolute gem on the show. I hope she steals the Golden Globe this year.

I would have rather seen Liz Hurley in the villainess role, but Vanessa Williams is ok.

Otherwise, the show is well done, very appealing to the eye. My fave character is played by Becki Newton, who is, imo, one of tv's hottest newcomers (alongside Minka Kelly of "Friday Night Lights").

Ugly Betty airs during the most competitive time slot of the week...up against Survivor and NBC's The Office/My Name is Earl.

Nothing but the "Praise the Lord" network for you, huh? :unsure:

I like Vanessa but I think Wilhemina has too big a part on the show. I like the way that each character has a little story going on - Hilda, Justin, the father, Daniel, the other two assistants, Henry, Walter, etc.

But Wilhemina has too many stories going on. She has the stuff at the office as the boss, everything where she is interacting with her assistant, the business about Faye, and the business about Niko.

To me it tips the balance with her having too many story lines going on.

It's pretty funny.

The original is better, but, it's in spanish.

America is great.


Vanessa Williams is fun too.

Original was in Poland and I was curious to see the American version. I have first 10 episodes and it's worth watching. Funny as hell :D

It is a great show. Both heartbreaking and hysterical at the same time! The writing and the acting is superb.

I agree with pretty much everyone else on Ugly Betty :yeah: It's the only new show I'm hooked on this season.

I need to download some episodes of 'Heroes'. I keep hearing how great it is, but I haven't managed to catch it. What day does it air?

And the funny thing is Vanessa's character has worked the best for me when she is involved with her daughter. Have to wait and see how it goes when the show come back in January.

I just saw it for the first time tonight.

Loved it.

But if "My Name Is Earl" is on at the same time, I'll have to catch "Ugly Betty" in reruns. :shrug:

Definitely Henry!!!

Definitely Henry!!!


Oh god, me too!! I love cute nerds like him.

But I'm afraid the theme of the show is supposed to be that Betty stays true to herself and doesn't let her new circumstances change her, so she will have to say with Walter. I really don't like Walter; anyone who won't try new things and is not excited about life is a dud.
