Two Buffy alums grace Thursday's Ugly Betty. Bailey Chase (Riley's friend Graham) reprises his role as Becks, and Ivana Milicevic (Sam, Riley's wife) makes an appearance as model Lena.

Also of interest, Max Greenfield (Veronica Mars' Deputy Leo) makes an appearance.

For those of you in the States, the episode will be posted on ABC's web site on Friday.

It's weird. Could it really be the show ripped off a German telenovela right down to the look of the main character? At least unlike Sat1 they had the good sense to make it a comedy. Try to imagine that kind of show taking itself completely serious and you know what we got. Of course now the network went and bought the ripoff of their own show, probably realizing it's 10x better than what they came up with.
It's not a rip-off of "Verliebt in Berlin". It's the offical American adaptation of "Yo soy Betty, la fea".
I love the over-the-top humor and the cast.
I've changed the link to the specific episode guide at TV.com so it can be permanent.

Damn, I should have known that our German networks are unable to come up with anything remotely original on their own. Like when some brilliant genius at RTL had the clever idea of doing their own remake of Married with Children and Who's the Boss (even using the original scripts) and showing it right after the original shows. Why would anyone waste money on an excact copy with different actors saying the same lines?

And stuff like Firefly never even gets shown... grrrrr
I catch this series once in a while when my sister tapes it (so pretty much only when either The Office or Survivor are repeats, 'cause the dual tuner PVR can't handle any more than that at one time). Bailey Chase is good and fun in that role. He also contributes to that show's already generously overflowing amounts of eye candy.

It's fun, often hilarious, well-written and well-acted, but sometimes I'm not in the mood for how frantic it feels. Dunno how it'd feel marathoning it on DVD.
