Ugly

Posted on Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Dave!Today some crazy bitch started screaming at me in the parking lot of the mini-mart as I was running in to buy a bag of Sun Chips and a King-Size Reeses for breakfast. I have no idea why, and didn't really care enough to find out. She was gone when I left, and that's all that mattered.

Now I'm kind of regretting that she didn't wait for me to come out and attack me or something, because then I would have had something to blog about tonight. As it is, I've got nothing. Just work. And maybe a few television shows off the TiVo to catch up on.

And speaking of television... now that Veronica Mars has been cancelled, it's tough for me to decide what my favorite show on television should be. Since I haven't seen any of the new shows they'll be running this Fall, I'm beginning to think it might be Ugly Betty. The show never stops surprising me...

Fugly Dave
Holy shit! It's Fugly Davy!

Seriously, just when you think they've run out of ways to keep the series interesting, they hit you with another shock. And, unlike shows like Lost, the mysteries on Betty are wrapped up before they become boring, and they then move on to something even more interesting. The season finale dropped more than a couple of bombshells that have me more interested in the show than ever.

Don't ask me how they've managed to trap me into liking it, because I have no idea. Usually I run away from crap like this... RUN LIKE THE WIND!

Okay, maybe not "run"... but I definitely would change the channel with my remote.

UPDATE: TV Shows On DVD is reporting that the complete first season of Ugly Betty will be released on August 21.

    I think I’ve just developed a full-on Dave crush now that I’ve seen that Fugly Davy toon.

    It’s my favorite so far…not kidding :).

  2. Brandon says:

    Now that the Gilmore Girls and Veronica have been canceled, I’ve got nothing to watch. I’m going to have to find some serial on the tube to watch besides the disappointing R$ches. Maybe I’ll get on the Ugly Betty bandwagon like you. I too would normally run from the show, and I have, but you’ve peeked my interest. What could possibly be happening on that show? Hopefully it will be on Netflix soon.

  3. Suzy says:

    Okay, for starters, the fact that you like Ugly Betty puts you in the top 4% of cool people on the internet who talk about their favorite shows.

    There are so many great characters on this show:
    -gay son
    -transgendered male who is hottie Rebecca Romijn
    -BETTY!
    -Betty’s sister
    -Vanessa Williams and her outfits
    -The evil receptionist and the
    -gay assistant to Vanessa Williams

    It is the hottest show of the year and the Emmy’s let them know.

    Is my picture still a giant G?

    “I’m beginning to THING it might be Ugly Betty. “

    hey.. i think u have a typographical error or something =P

    Anyway, i love your blog. I’ve been reading it for months now, but this is the first time i gave a comment. =P

  5. serap says:

    I love Ugly Betty too! And I don’t usually watch anything where I have to watch every week to keep up with the storyline, but I’ll do it for Ugly betty. And even though he tries not to, I know that my boyfriend loves it too!

  6. RW says:

    I’ve replaced regular TV watching with reading blogs. I find it 1000 times more interesting. There are some exceptionally creative people nobody ever heard of out there!

  7. Kyra says:

    I can’t figure out why I watch it either, it’s not really my type of show, but for some reason I catch it every time. Maybe it’s got some sort of subliminal hypnotic power or something… it’s the braces!

  8. Dave2 says:

    Hilly… Oddly enough, I think this is pretty close to what I looked like in High School.

    Brandon… The show can be annoying at times because, at its heart, it’s just a soap opera… but it’s an incredibly good soap opera, with plenty of twists and turns to keep things interesting.

    Suzy… Yep, you’re a “G”… which is what happens when you’ve signed up, but haven’t been rated yet. Sometimes it takes quite a while. Hands-down my favorite character is Vanessa Williams… so deliciously evil!

    Aiko… Fixed! That will teach me to blog after a 16-hour work day.

    Serap… And you DO have to watch every week to keep up with all the stuff going on, don’t you? Fortunately, I have TiVo to keep track of Betty so I don’t have to!

    RW… I read blogs WHILE I watch television. It’s the best of both worlds.

    Kyra… Not only is Betty NOT the kind of show I usually enjoy, but it’s usually the type of show I despise! Still, somehow it’s got me hooked. I wonder how long they can keep it going at such a frantic pace? I guess time will tell.

  9. Avitable says:

    You should give Heroes another shot, and you should check out Supernatural. Season 2 of Supernatural was much better than the first one, and I’m hoping for even more improvement next season.

  10. bluepaintred says:

    I still haven’t seen ugly betty.

    what night is it on?

  11. Lewis says:

    Hey, if you’re gonna be yelled at….it may as well be by a screaming bitch. Only thing worse is a screaming bitch queen. Oops.

  12. Bec says:

    I love Ugly Betty – we’re still in the middle of the first season. I think it was the moment Justin did hair in the subway that I knew… I just knew…

    That DaveToon is definitely in my top 3!

  13. Bre says:

    I must admit that at first Ugly Betty seemed like the stupidest thing a network exec has ever coughed up… so I didn’t watch. But then! The previews started getting interesting, the clips I saw looked hilarious, and dammit I was kicking myself for not paying attention sooner because I’m a “watch the series from the beginning” kind of girl. So now I’m “patiently” waiting until August so that I can snap up the DVD’s and get on board!

  14. ElJames says:

    There are two reasons to watch Ugly Betty: Salma Hayek’s boobs in HiDef.

  15. Jacquie says:

    Hey Dave, I have an idea… you should blog some more about Veronica Mars being cancelled. ;)

  16. shari says:

    So, it’s probably just a maternal response, but I’m thinking Fugly Davy is just too cute! Like I need to take him to his baseball game or organize his class field trip or something. Maybe bake him cookies?

    Hey! No fair. That’s what you were counting on, wasn’t it? Post Fugly Davy and women will send you cookies. You are shrewd.

  17. Foo says:

    Fugly Davey…you are the hotness with your silver grill. The UB season finale totally caught me off guard. Hi, I cried…that will be all.

  18. Glad to hear you too have been sucked in by Ugly Betty… I can hardly wait to see how they clear up those cliffhangers next season.

  19. I’m with Hilly. Seriously, if you are ever feeling the need to procreate whilst in the Seattle area – I would totally have your love child.

  20. Laurence says:

    Our ugly lady is german ! Her name is Lisa.

    The german version is not bad ! ;-)

    P.S. I think we will see Ugly lady soon !

  21. Laurence says:

    Just for my gravatar ! ;-)

  22. Suzy says:

    I’ve gone from a G to an x. That will teach me to complain about the G.

  23. ADW says:

    Oh my goodness, I love UB. I thought that it would be the dumbest show on TV, but I think they led in to Grey’s with it and I was hooked. Now there is NO TV show that I watch every week, but I will log onto the shows site and watch bak episodes to catch up.

  24. birdie2u says:

    I’ve never heard of either show. So, if you’re in the top 4% of cool people on the Internet talking about your favorite shows, I now know exactly where I fall in the coolness spectrum. YIKES!

    BTW, I appreciate seeing the occasional typo. In fact, seeing yours inspired me to resist the urge to go repair my last one. Then you fixed it.

    EGAD! NOW what do I do?!

  25. suze says:

    Yay! Ugly Betty was close to inching out Veronica as my favourite show this season, but the little blonde heroine love is strong with me, so she never did fully take over. Now that Veronica is gone the Betty love has taken over full force. (Why do I suddenly feel like I’m in an Archie comic book…)

  26. lizriz says:

    Ugly Betty Dave TOTALLY ROCKS!

  27. Eve says:

    Fugly Davy is awesome! And so is Ugly Betty, it’s definitely one of the best new TV shows.
