Just gah!! Last night's show was fun and funny and sweet and real and soapy and OHMYGOD!!!!!!!!! How much do I love Daniel and Betty!?!? How much!?!? I don't know, but it's a really, really, huge, super-duper, duper lot!! Her bringing him flowers and getting his dry-cleaning when she doesn't even work for him! The stairs. "Booobs." Setting him up ("Gisaniel!"), Being there when he was stood up (bad Amanda!). The snails. The pizza. THE KARAOKE!!! The bridge-talk. Ahhhhh! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!! America Ferrera and Eric Mabius have such lovely, lovely chemistry.
But what makes this show so much more than (LOVE!!!!!) Betty and Daniel, is that they are layering this so well that I'm cool with them not being together yet -- please let it be yet!! I'm willing to wait a few seasons because it's so well-done and they're so not ready for it yet. I love Henry, I love that Daniel was pimping Henry. I love that Daniel said that she was better than any supermodel. Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh. Sorry, I jumped back on the B/D train real quick. But the thing is that I love Betty/Henry as short-term, even while longing for B/D long-term.
And OHMYGOD upcoming spoiler from a promo pic for the Feb 1 episode OHMYGOD!! Person and Person ****ing?!?!?! AHHHHH!!! I don't know how I feel about this, but I have faith that UB will make it work and I'll be cool with it. Whatever direction they take.
Mark and Amanda, lordy, I think I heart Mark/Amanda almost as much as B/D. When he kept fighting for Amanda to Wil, I grinned, I loved it. Loved it, loved it.
And amidst all of this love and fun and laughter was the drama and angst of Hilda and her disappointment in her life and poor Justin!! And then we had the campy of the campiest Alexis is ... Alex! AHHHHHH!!! I kinda wish I hadn't read the TWoP thread last week because a lot of people were spec'ing that and I don't know if I would have realized it or not. Eh, who cares. Twas awesome.
This show is THE awesome.
