Ugly Betty Rocks
18 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this show. I think that it is a great inspiration for people who are not as beautiful on the outside as a lot of people, but their beauty lies on the inside. When I saw the first episode I was like what is this girl thinking. She was out of her environment, but then as the show went on, I found myself rooting for her. I really like the show and I hope that it stays around for a really long time. There is a few things that I would like to see though. I would like to see Betty transform throughout the show. Not dramatic or anything, but just a little here and a little there. I would also like to see her and Daniel get together. Ugly Betty is an inspiration to all. I make sure that I am at home at 8pm on Thursday nights to watch the show. If for some reason I don't get to watch it then sometimes I can catch it on the soap net.
