Review and Recap of Ugly Betty Season Four Premiere

Buzz In: What Did You Think of the Ugly Betty Season Premiere?

The fourth season of Ugly Betty kicked off this week, with a two-hour premiere on Friday night. ABC hasn't exactly been heavily marketing the show, and many — including me — are worried that the new time slot could be a death sentence. I was happy to have Betty back in my living room, and I'm already loving the new work dynamic between her and Matt. Plus, I was excited to see more of Justin, and while I think it's high time for Betty's braces to come off, I'm glad they didn't dive right into the makeover we all know is coming.

So what are your thoughts on the premiere? Did you come back to Betty on Friday nights, or are you throwing in the towel?

Loved it! It has me excited about Ugly Betty again. I loved it, and oddly, for the first time, I felt there was some romantic chemistry between Betty and Daniel. I felt it too! Love is in the air...

I hadn't realized it was two hours. I watch it on Hulu. Just saw the second hour and it sat with me much better than the first hour. I just get tired of betty being the but and never really succeeding, so I hope this is really a new leaf. And seriously, although matt looks super hot (thank goodness for good hair cuts) he needs to keep the personal life out of their work, but duh, I know that was the point...

@avocado_seed, i think in the telenovela daniel & betty end up getting married. not sure if that's 100% true, but i read something somewhere along those lines. maybe foreshadowing? what's funny was i was excited about the premiere, but when they had the "last season on ugly betty" recap, i didn't know what was going on because my dvr failed to record the last 2 ep's of season 3! but luckily i caught up and thought the premiere was great. i, too, did not like the wili/niko storyline. marc & amanda were fab as usual... matt's lines were hilarious, and that chick meeegan, lol.
I've got it on my DVR and haven't watched it yet - glad to hear the good reviews! ROSSY - you can see the full episode at

Am I the ONLY ONE who wants to see Betty with Daniel? I forgot it was on (I guess because of the switch to Friday) so I missed it until I channel-surfed & caught the last 2 minutes! - A friend told me that Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams) has a grown daughter who may be a murderess? I admit to having a bad memory... but what gives? Can someone fill me in, please? - Thanks in advance.

I loved it, and oddly, for the first time, I felt there was some romantic chemistry between Betty and Daniel. Matt does look so much cuter with his short hair and Betty looked so pretty, but I didn't like her look at the end too much. The jacket made her look kind of frumpy.

So happy when Daniel punched out Matt! Best part of the episode. If I were Betty I wouldn't worry about people thinking I only got the job because of Daniel. Daniel only got his job because of his dad and Matt only got his job because of his dad... everybody knows somebody. At least Daniel helped her because she had his respect, not because she was a relative.

I'm loving Betty, I hope it continuous this way. Its good to see Betty grow. High hopes for this season.

I thought it was really good and I'm glad that Betty is still getting somewhat of a make-over. Matt's snide remarks throughout the episode were really funny: "you were expecting something longterm and got something shortterm instead." :) And I like that they are exploring the changing dynamic of Betty/Daniel, but I really hope they don't go to the romantic angle. That just doesn't flow from their previous relationship.

I thought it was great, it's getting me hooked on it again. It's too bad it's been moved to Fridays! I loved Matt's haircut, it made him look really cute, even though he was a complete jerk in the episode-though I guess it's understandable, to an extent. I was so nervous they'd start off with a big change in the first episode. I, too, want her change to be gradual. Though, was I the only one who didn't really love her outfit at the end? The concept was cute, but I didn't really like the hair...

Yeah, luved it too! Kept my attention for 2 hours! So that's a bonus, I remembered bored to death in the last few episodes of Betty season 3. I'm surprised no one mentioned Matt's new haircut! Makes him look evil, but also very cute and adorable (especially with his business suit). I also loved that Betty is going to fight her battles from now on (hopefully!) and I love her new look, still Betty, but also changing. Cross my fingers, hope the show stays like that for the entire season But :(, no recap? Also, luv the Justin stuff, I hope they explore his character more...

What happened to Kristen Johnston? She seriously looked sickly, she was so thin.

i really liked it as well! i've always been an ugly betty fan, even when others jumped ship! i too hope this time slot and lack of promotion are not the death of the show. i liked the work dynamic, between betty and her office mate (meeeeegan), matt, mark, amanda, daniel, the story line with justin. the only story i didn't love was wili's daughter---but i guess they needed drama somewhere. and i was happy when betty chose to stay with daniel! im also glad they are easing into the makeover...and kristen johnston was hilarious.
