...Ugly Betty, Season 1 (2006)

About two-thirds of the way through Season 1, Ugly Betty, a smart and funny television series about the fashion industry and the people who work in it started with a story line or two with unbelievable plot twists that were reminiscent of daytime soap operas. Although this ridiculous aspect of the series was oft-putting, the acting is very good and the scripts are funny and well-written. Mainly though, the characters are complex people (with each having good and bad characteristics) that I really cared about - and you will too.
