The UK is waaaaaaaay behind the US. We're only up to episode 10 here.
I love Marc. I want to marry him. Although there is a very obvious flaw in my plan... lol

It's a cute show. I really hate it though when Wilhelmina is scheming. She'll never give up. And her character just doesn't seem .. right for the show. I never get telenovela feelings from the show unless she's on screen. It's weird.

Oh and Christina is a great character.

I think Wilhelmina is great. I love the relationship between her and Marc. They're almost like a real life Smithers & Mr Burns.

Oh and Christina is a great character.

Hell yeah! It's great to see a Scot on such a high profile American show. :coctail:

I've seen little bits of the Russian version - Ne Rodis' Krasivoy (Don't Be Born Beautiful). It has Nelly Uvarova in it.

Edited - is Ugly Betty on youtube too ? Perhaps I should compare the 2 versions and give you a better response ? :D

Name a country and I guarantee they've got their own version of 'Ugly Betty'. It's everywhere.

And when did you change your name back to Spyretto? I was just getting used to calling you 'Dr Dark'.

Woah! That chick really is ug-lay!! :eek: :lol:
So who's seen the original series? Are the storylines pretty much the same as the American version or is it totally different?

I've only ever seen 2 episodes of 'The L Word' and they sucked. I didn't know Eric Mabius was in that show.
Wasn't he in one of the 'Resident Evil' movies? :confused:

That's what I thought.
I don't get why everyone thinks he's so hott though. He's nothing special IMO.
