Ugly Betty -- "Grin And Bear It" -- 10/18/07

"Grin and Bear It"
Spoiler:
Betty gets into trouble in her writing class when she submits a pre-written MODE story written by a woman who survived a bear attack (hence the title). Alexis returns to work, still with memory loss and having no idea how to act like a girl. Daniel receives a threat from their top advertiser who is against transsexuals and wants Daniel to fire his own sister. Amanda, still trying to figure out who her real father is, learns a shocking secret about Wilhelmina's past.

First Aired: Thursday October 18, 2007

Great episode. I couldn't stop laughing when Amanda was going through the pictures of her possible "daddies".

Nice to see Victor Garber again.

Yeah, I even wondered whether to bother creating the weekly threads but I love this show too much to give it up. So if that means that I'm one of the few people commenting in the threads weekly, so be it.

BTW, I forgot to mention the hilarious guest turn by John Cho. Loved his interactions with Henry and Betty.

Was this the first week for the "new" Justin? I take it he's trying to be more like how he thought his dad was? At least it shows some range in acting for the kid playing him, but I don't know...I think he should be stumbling with some of this stuff at first as he tries to get used to trying to act completely different. He's acting in a way that's not natural for him, yet it comes off as completely natural.

I love this show! The highlight for me this week was Victor Garber, he was hilarious. Amanda was also great this week, as always.

I like the guy who plays Daniel, but his story lines are getting really boring. He's not a very convincing drug addict, and the storyline about the wheelchair/faking not being able to walk, seemed really pointless. Also, we need more Ignacio! That whole Mexico thing was a real letdown - they never gave him anything to actually do, they just showed him on the phone all the time, except at the very end, which happened much too quickly. I was hoping he would have some sort of interesting adventure while he was down there. I'd like to see him get a decent little storyline.

I also loved the 'fro.

I didn't even realize it watching this episode last week, but I just showed my wife Planet Terror for the first time and she pointed out that El Wray was the sandwich maker.

I've never seen SFU.

He was also Carla's brother on Scrubs.

Ahaaaaaaa!

I knew I recognized him from somewhere. I've probably seen less than 10 episodes of 6FU, but didn't remember him until you pointed it out.

Any chance of the paternity results being incorrect somehow, or will they replace Betty's love interest with the sandwich guy?

Another good episode.

Some great bits, but the writing class storyline was a bit lame. I'm not really digging Justin as his father either -- I preferred him when he was fabulous. I did like the bit with John Cho -- more Harold anytime!

Loved the episode. Justin was quite annoying trying to be his dad, but i still love his character.
