Ugly Betty -- "Family/Affair" -- 10/04/07

"Family/Affair"
Spoiler:
Betty gets a little overwhelmed about Wilhelmina's brand new hunky bodyguard. Plus, Henry returns to pay for insurance, which has Betty concerned about their relationship. Because of the fatal crash, Alexis gets amnesia and Bradford uses it to his advantage. Hilda comes to terms with recent events. And Amanda gets a surprise inheritance from her late biological mother.

First Aired: Thursday October 4, 2007

Vanessa Williams was fantastic in this episode. "I smell burritos."

Loved Amanda and her $1,000/wk dog.

Nope, I love it. And the episode was great as usual. I love how the only time you see Marc show any compassion it is toward Justin. You just seem to have to hate him, but when he interacts with Justin, he just pulls a 180 an becomes a very likable character. I loved it last year when he told him "Wear what you want, just learn to run really fast."

Yeah, I like that relationship and I hope it develops a little more.

The scenes between Betty and Wilhemena were very good this week, too.

I love the show, but I never have much to post about it. It is just a fun, enjoyable show that you don't have to think too much about.

I was glad that they showed Justin reacting to his father's death this week.

Amanda lost her weight fast.

I'm also watching it, but never really had a lot to say about it that I felt I should post my thoughts. It's a good show, and this was a great episode.

This is a great show. It continues to deliver the laughs pretty consistently. And I love those little moments like the one between Mark and Justin.

It was weird to see Vanessa Williams and Rick Fox in scenes together, since they have been divorced for a couple of years now.

I can't believe how much Justin sprouted over the summer.

I had to do a double-take on that myself. I figured it was just some dude who looked like Fox, until he spoke, then it was definite. Good to know they must still get along pretty well.

Which is why it was funnier when Fox's character asks if he could be on top and Wilemina just slams him back onto the bed to stradles him.

Very disappointed with the premiere of my fave comedy 30 Rock, but finally had time to sit down to watch this eppy.

Love the scenes between Betty & Wilh, especially on the rooftop! Agree Vanessa was great -- I still think she was robbed of an Emmy.

I thought the premiere was a little weak but it's picking steam again. The fast-paced witty comedy is what makes this show standout.
