Ugly Betty – S03E22 – In the Stars Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

With Meade now back in business thanks to the investment made by Cal Hartley, it’s time to start putting out the next issue. Wilhelmina, who’s used to running the meeting for the magazine, is interrupted by Cal Hartley who just nonchalantly walks in and takes a seat. His opinion changes the whole layout and they end up having to practically redo the whole thing by the end of the episode. Cal Hartley hasn’t done anything crazy yet, but I like him in ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E21 – The Born Identity Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

It’s finally time for Cal Hartley to sign off on investing in Mode, but things go south when Wilhelmina’s baby goes missing. This episode was pretty fast paced and I like the frantic tone that it had. Another benefit of this episode was that the majority of the episode was focused on this plot. This episode actually surprised me because when Wilhelmina’s baby went missing, I actually thought that it wasn’t Christina. So it was surprising to see Betty get into the car ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E20 – Rabbit Test Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Apparently the sex issue that Mode put out last episode was a flop. It’s sad to hear, especially after we had a whole episode dedicated to it. It’s also one of those nice little swerves that make you realize that any outcome can happen on this show. The office is getting repossessed and Meade is out of options. When Betty finds out that Matt’s dad, Cal Hartley, is a billionaire and is interested in investing in a media publication, she takes it upon ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E19 – The Sex Issue Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

“The Sex issue” references the latest issue of the magazine for Mode that is going to be focused on sex. Along with the magazine, the episode itself also dealt with sex in a couple of ways. Betty and Matt have been going out for a month and Betty’s ready for them to take their relationship to the next level, but there’s a problem and it’s because Matt keeps shutting her down. I thought this was interesting because for some reason Ugly Betty has ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E18 – A Mother of A Problem Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Betty and Henry’s relationship hasn’t been labeled and Betty likes it this way. It’s obvious that the two are boyfriend and girlfriend, but things are just so much simpler before you start to add those labels to them. In “A Mother of a Problem” Betty gears up to meet Matt’s mother who is played by the Christine Baranski. This role had to be really easy for Baranski because we’ve seen her play this type of role countless other times. She plays the ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E17 – Sugar Daddy Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

In “Sugar Daddy” Meade publication is facing an economic crisis. After the money that Connor stole from the company, Daniel and Wilhelmina are forced to ask for a corporate bailout. This is actually a very good idea until the two are caught commiserating about the love they just lost over a four hundred dollar bottle of wine. This is a storyline that’s really in tune with reality with all of the corporate bailouts going on. It did seem like sometimes it was ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E16 – Things Fall Apart Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

This was a much better episode of Betty than I’ve been used and it seems like the spotlight is back on Betty - as it should be. I’m still not happy that Betty is back home because now her life seems crowded, but if we have to deal with Betty living with her family to get a good episode, I'll take that deal. “Things Fall apart” was an unexpected return to form with some nice little twists along the way. Betty and Marc ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E15 – There’s No Place Like Mode Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Well this is definitely interesting, because we got another good episode of Ugly Betty. It really seems like the writers have snapped out of their funk and we’re back to the way Ugly Betty is supposed to be. I like Betty being in Yeti; it allows her to do things that she would have never done before.  Bernadette Peters is hilarious in the little roles she gets every once and a while and I loved the little trick she pulled on everyone when ...

Ugly Betty – S03E14 – The Courtship of Betty’s Father Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

The past couple of episodes of Ugly Betty have really been a doozy, but with “The Courtship of Betty’s Father”, we get an episode that is more focused with a lot more heart to it than we’ve been getting lately. The episode starts us off with Claire getting busted for shoplifting, which is funny considering she’s one of the richest people in New York. It turns out that it’s Claire’s birthday and it seems she’s just doing it to get some attention. Something ... Read More

Ugly Betty – S03E13 – Kissed Off Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Another episode of Betty, slightly better, but far from what I’m used to with this show. This show has given us two great seasons, but it’s starting to look like the writers are running out of good ideas. This was once again just an okay episode, but okay isn’t good enough. First off, I have to say that Betty, as a character, is really taking steps back in her character development; the beginning of the season had her moving out and now we’re ... Read More
