  • Fun, Festive, but a bit frustrating.

    Ugly Bettys comedy element was out in full force this episode, but that didn't make up for it unoriginality.

    I hate pregnancy storylines in any show, theres only so many routes the storyline can take and they've all been done, so as soon as it became obvious preganacies were going to be a key feature in this episode I was on a bit of a downer.

    What I'm going to refer to as 'the whole Jewish thing' was somewhat frustrating too. It was certainly the source of all the bad jokes and lines in the episode. I dont know why every American show gets Jew tourettes, but at some point they always spout out some awkward nonesense thats like a cheesy santised form of working mens club insult comedy.

    I can't say I'm buying Willies latest scheme with Connor. It is fabulously deceptive and so in the spirit of the show, but it feels somewhat lacking, I'll reserve judgement for now, but it betetr get more interesting!

    Hylda saved the episode. Despite disliking the pregnancy storyline it is good to see her current relationship end and for him to bow out fast leaving her with the new delicious bad boy! She was enjoyable to watch for sure.

    Claire Meades storyline was also a definate highlight. Shes my favorite chaecter and she can't do anything wrong! I think they are playing out her lost child storyline very well, and it was certaionly my favorite part of this episode.

    This was for me the weakest episode of the series so far and it has been dipping slowly for the last 2 or 3. The writers need to give us more scandal and intrigue, its all getting a bit to vanilla: theres to many fast and sugary resolutions, poor rivalry and no solid love to hate villian, these need to be regained fast if the show isn't to grind to a hault this season, which is very likely.moreless
  • Quite good, and hilarious too!

    This was a delightful episode of Ugly Betty, and I feel it stepped up from last week's episode. This was ceratainly a very interesting one, and I loved the storyline!

    The scenes at the Drug Store were amazing, and that was absolutely hilarious! Well don! The scenes at the Suarez bathroom were also sensational, and just as incredible, and I was laughing a lot throughout this episode!

    Overall, I highly enjoyed it. Quite fgood storyline development, and downright hilarious! If it continues this way, I'm sure that it will end off with a bang! Doesn't deserve to be cnacelled, but I will enjoy it while it lasts, and I will highly recommend this show to anybody, as it is just so amazing!moreless

    • Amanda: (talking about Claire's son) Look, you just have to show up and see him. And you'll know what to do next.
      Claire: Thank you, Amanda.
      Amanda: But not looking like that. You're going to South-Dakota. You have to blend in. Less 'money' and more 'food stamp'. Come on. We're gonna give you a make-under.
