Surprisingly good
19 February 2002 | by digooseSee all my reviews

Saying that I am RATHER NOT a fan of Latin soap operas is like saying that I am RATHER NOT a pink elephant. Sometimes I just leave my TV on without any special reason, just for having some buzz behind. "Betty" (released as "Ugly girl" in Poland) happened to be that "buzz" and suddenly I found myself turning my head again and again from my computer to my TV. And then I found myself waiting every day for the next chapter of that charming "buzz" :) Maybe this is because "Betty" is more like a comedy than a traditional soap opera. A Cinderella-like story given with a huge dose of humor. Nice characters, funny love story, good dialogues, good music, good actors job - what more do you need when watching a good comedy ? "Betty" did something to me - still being RATHER NOT a fan of soap operas I will always watch at least several episodes before switching my TV off and spreading my opinion about the next stupid opera on TV.
