My fave new show! I adore America. She is just wonderful. It is so campy and yet I also find it heartwarming. I just LOVE Thurs. night TV.

Ugly Betty is a rerun tonight. I will watch and take notes. This is one of the shows I want to write a spec script for.

I watched tonight also. Even though it was a rerun. That is the mark of a great show. When I enjoy the reruns as much the second time around.

I agree. Willingness to watch reruns means it is a great show. It is the moment to moment stuff, interactions, dialogue missed the first time, etc. that makes it fun.

That's the trouble with plot shows, like CSI or any of the Law and Order shows....once you've seen the plot, they are done, even if you like the actors (I like, even if I can't spell their names: Mariska Hagartay, Chris Maloni, Jesse L. Martin, Sam Waterston, Vincent D'Ofrio...but I don't watch them twice)

I watched the first season of Survivor. I figured, okay, I get it. I liked it but didn't really see the need for me to watch it again (my time is limited).

Now, Ugly Betty - I will watch each episode THREE times, just to make sure I don't miss anything.

They DO make fun of the Queens girls a lot though. I wonder if I had lived there longer than I did, how different I would be?

If my husband were not a big Survivor watcher, I think I'd switch to Ugly Betty. I've about had it with Survivor. I'm not sure how some of the shit Burnett does is even legal.

DH will start to watch an Ugly Betty with me, but he NEVER makes it to the end. He ends up shaking his head and heading off to the computer. Mostly appeals to women and gay men, I think.

Tonight is a "best moments/clips" show. You get to see and hear the writers talk about the characters. It's been interesting and fun to relive some great moments.

4/19/2007...Two minutes in I am already sitting laughing and having jaw dropped amazement. The have a new Truman Capote-esque character as a reporter investigating Meade.

Anybody see the film Infamous? It is the funny version of Capote.

They just showed a montage of Betty in costumes supplied by the Scottish woman (dang, what is her name) so they could go out on the town. Hilarious things like ostrich feathers ballgown.

All departments in this show really contribute to the hilarity.

I am so pissed. My DVR decided to be a diva tonight and not record it. At about 22 minutes after the hour I checked it and started the recording. So, I don't know if I should watch it or not. But two-thirds is better than nothing I guess?

Oh wow. I watched the last 2/3s of the show that I had recorded. Some crazy stuff.

WHO was that Truman Capote look-alike? That was bizarre. And the mother-daughter duo, omg. Poor Constance. OOO - the FISH! I had never heard of such a thing!

I just want to look like Amanda. Maybe next life.

I watched it Austin. I never miss it or at least tape it and watch later. It was very good last night. I love that Betty and Henry may be heading toward each other. Lots of other good things going on too. I just adore that Justin! He cracks me up and he is such a cutie. It looks like it is going to be really good next week too! Sad to think the season is almost over. I will miss the show over the summer.

BTW, I am thrilled that America made People's most beautiful list! I think she is such a total doll!

I liked the fauxmo. (Amanda's guy). There was SO much going on in that episode!

Bradford and Willi - kinda squicky, no?

I didn't know that about America. Good for her. Also Sanjaya. Ha.

Congrats to Ugly Betty, America, and Ana Ortiz on their ALMA wins! I get so excited when America wins an award. I think she is just wonderful.
