I just…don’t really know what to say about Ugly Betty, except that the very title of the show is appalling.
ABC’s hook for the show is “In the superficial world of high fashion, image is everything. Styles come and go and the only constants are wafer-thin beauties who wear it. Where could a girl who is less than pretty and a little bit pudgy possibly fit in?”
Someone please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this show’s creation was just a really bad idea. Maybe it’ll be a good satirical look at the shallow nature of the fashion industry. Somehow, I doubt it.
And I’m left wondering why they assume Betty would want to fit into the superficial world in which she’s thrown.
