Review of Ugly Betty

60 minutes

Ugly Betty follows the daily life of Betty Suarez, a young woman from a struggling Latino family in Queens, who works as an executive assistant at MODE fashion magazine in Manhattan. Most of her female co-workers are more attractive than she is; they often humiliate and insult her because of her appearance (her only friend is Christina McKinney, the Scottish seamstress). Suarez is not very interested in fashion and is sometimes clueless about the company's motives and organizations, although she does have a passion for photography. Her boss, the womanizing Daniel Meade, also lacks fashion experience. However, both are intent on performing well at their jobs, even at the expense of those trying to stop them, most prominently Mode's creative director, Wilhelmina Slater.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I love this show mostly because it brought the brilliance of Willhelmina Slater into my life. It is warm, funny and soapy. Every thing i want in a show to pass the time. I think it did end at the right time though, storylines were starting to dry up.
