Hopefully, you remember the show on ABC known as Ugly Betty. I love it. Of course I do, I wouldn't be writing a Throwback Thursday on it if I didn't have a little part of me that was attached to it. I've been rewatching the show and I made strong headway over spring break. I planned on watching all four seasons, I barely made it through season one, so much for that plan.
The first season starts with the new editor in chief (Daniel Meade) taking the place of Fey Summers. The former editor in chief who died in a horrible car crash after her brake lines were cut. We see glimpses of Fey Summers with her bob and prim attitude, reminiscent of current Vogue editor, Anna Wintour.
I do have a dirty secret about Ugly Betty. I actually hate Betty. The titular character, the reason we tuned in every week. She is just so annoying. She tries so hard to be nice and good. She is constantly having all of these unnecessary moral dilemmas. Come on Betty, don't sell your soul to the devil (Wilhemina) but you don't have to be so clingy and an upright pillar of the community. Live.
Justin is probably one of my favorites. I especially like his relationship with Mark. Mark is like his guardian gay. He's always there to mentor him and I just love it. When the two of them are together it's everything. Justin is also not openly gay until the last season. It's coming to terms with it and I love how his family is just always there being supportive. Even, his biological father gets on board eventually with letting Justin be Justin. It's just really nice. It's how it should be. My parents died, because in the last season Justin finally kisses this boy he likes. They saw it and they were like that's disgusting. And, I was like this is the best part of Ugly Betty.
