I was warned last night not to watch My Name is Earl because the episode was sleazy and disgusting, taking place in a strip club and featuring Burt Reynolds (enough said). I thought I'd take the opportunity to check out the Critic's Darling -- Ugly Betty.
I was not impressed. The acting was all over the place. I should say "over-acting" was all over the place. I can't even understand the point of the show. Betty and her family are shown realistically, but every other character is a CARTOON. Except for Betty's boss who is the BLANDEST MAN ON TV, who somehow has constant sex with supermodels. This show is trying too hard to be funny and dramatic and soap operish and witty and hip and the new "Desperate Housewives".
