I have a couple of observations that come from last night’s episode that I find quite interesting. First off, there were two references to a website: SoCuteItsSick.com , which is supposed to feature bunnies and puppies and ducks. I checked, the site does not exist. However, I did a little more research and found this at the Disney Enquirer:
UPDATE:So we were close. It appears SoCuteItsSick.com will be an Ugly Betty-related domain. It will definitely be mentioned in Episode three of this season and possibly earlier.
So, Disney owns the domain. They probably bought it to park it (get it? Disney? Park?), so that nobody would grab the domain and put anti-Disney stuff there. But more likely, it’ll end up like Marc’s favorite website, DudeCruise.com, which redirects you to the Ugly Betty website at ABC. But hopefully, Disney will put cute puppies and bunnies and baby ducks. on the site, because we all need a little cuteness in our lives.
Secondly, there’s this: while doing recaps, I’ve noticed that there is a spot in each episode this year where a bagel or a group of bagels is featured prominently. I’ve pretty much decided that this is a running gag, so next week, I’ll post the time of the first bagel sighting.
Last night, I said that I didn’t think this episode was as funny, but in retrospect, I guess it’s just because there were less sight gags (Dick Cheney! Thunder!) and more one-liners. Sometimes, those go by so fast that we, the audience, don’t have time to say, “Hey, that was funny!”.
