Ugly Betty

Who’d have though I’d ever blog about a TV programme… or that I’d even own a TV. But so it is. Ugly Betty came to Britain last week, and she’s worth an hour of your time.

Betty is the stereo-typical poor smart girl. Hard working, clever, honest, and out of sync with the privileged world her brain buys access to. She is the brunt of every joke, and even her stuffed rabbit gets bullied. But what sweet revenge to see the schemers foiled.

This is for anyone who has ever found themselves clearing up streamers and paper cups after a night of watching other people dance.

…and for anyone who has dared to challenge bullies in a system that seems blind to their very existence.

Fridays at 9.30pm, channel 4.
