My Take: Ugly Betty - Darn Charlie

So many awesome moments in this episode!

First off, LOVED the photo of Lucy Liu's character from her and Daniel's college yearbook. Very Betty-esque!

Second, it was cute to see Marc and Christina work together to whip up that Oscar dress for Sarah Jessica Parker. (But c'mon, are we really supposed to believe she'd wear bubble wrap to the biggest event of the year?)

Third, I agree with Justin, I love the musical Hairspray (and I can't wait for the movie to come out this summer!) He did a great job of acting out the opening number for his parents on the subway.

Fourth, it sucked watching Jerry O'Connell's character be an a** to Alexis (his real life girlfriend Rebecca Romijn), but it was all worth it to see "Willie" knock him out with an amazing punch! Nice kick at the end, too.

And then there's Betty and Henry! Of course Henry's girlfriend had to be this adorable girl that Betty would befriend. Things are going to get interesting now that Henry knows Betty is into him, too. What's a cute, nerdy accountant to do?

First, Jim and Pam, then Veronica and Logan, and now Betty and Henry - too many tortured romances!!! Ah, who am I kidding? I love them all!

Finally, it was funny to see Bradford Meade on Lost last night. Considering he was also Caleb on The O.C., I thought Entertainment Weekly's Lost re-cap was so funny when the reviewer pondered, "Is Alan Dale the only actor who's allowed to play rich SOBs on TV?"

Charlie's so cute - though I found it completely ridiculous that she fell in love with NY after riding the subway....NO ONE loves riding the subway. It's nasty.

The episode had some fun moments - loved the dress making bit. So cute to see Mark actually being human again instead of Willy's bitch. :)
