[Closed] Betty en New York - Closed, look for the Watch Party post
Tentative title, announced at Telemundo 2018 upfronts. There's some confusion about whether this will be in English or Spanish, but it's a remake of Betty La Fea.
I just love how the actress playing Betty is staying in character for all her interviews and public appearances. The rest of the cast was dressed to the nines looking glamorous on a recent red carpet, and she was in her Betty costume. I find her adorable! I really wasn't sure about watching this new incarnation, since the original Colombian version is one of my all-time faves, but this looks irresistible. In contrast to how the publicity for El barón wound up turning me off, this Betty campaign has won me over!
Unless they crash and burn in the first week, this one looks like a keeper. I don't know how I'm gonna make it work, but I'm gonna make it work.
So, thoughts on how you/I/we want to run the Watch Party thread? I think we have some first-time Bettys but also some who have Bettied before. I think the easiest thing is to stick to the topic which is this Betty at this time. But is there a need for a compare/contrast space? And should it be completely separate?
Full disclosure, I also watched the Colombian Betty la Fea and it is still one that I will re-watch when I see reruns because I loved it. The Mexican La Fea Mas Bella I watched and recapped the extension and it's also on Galavision right now in reruns, so there's a possibility some people will try to watch both. I guess. I dunno. So that's my question--how do we Betty?
I haven't seen any version. With 300(?) episodes of the Mexican version, I doubt I'll ever get around to watching it. Ever. I do hope to one day get to see the Colombian version.
As long as talk centers most around the current version I'm fine with comments about other versions and a consolidated thread. (Did that sound rude?)
I haven't seen any of the versions. I tried a couple of times to watch LFMB and UB but for some reason they turned me off and I never could get into them, so I have no problems hearing about any other version. The promos look cute for this one, so I'm willing to give this story another chance, and I don't mind hearing about other versions. If I do like it though, I might be a bit behind and not commenting much
