Daytime Confidential's Top 10 Couples of 2008



No. 2: Daniel and Amber - The Young and Restless

Throw together two dynamic actors portraying beloved characters, with tons of chemistry, add a bunch of angst, relatable imperfections and undeniable sex appeal and you have Y&R's Daniel (Michael Graziadei)and Amber (Adrienne Frantz). Throw in a scheming, meddlesome MILF like Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and a hilarious four-way (five-way?) call to Loveline and you get one of the best soap couples this year. Take note head writers everywhere, this is how its done.

Gigi & Rex - One Life to Live

I'm going to have to go w/ Nelson Branco here. They have become so overrated. They were good for about 5 minutes but now they just fall flat.

So, Liason is tied for #3, do the higher ups see this or read this? I am glad that Patrick/Robin were #1 since there romance was very nice and GHN2 also helped us enjoy this couple even more.

Thank you for acknowledging Viki and Charlie on OLTL. I have enjoyed them so much this year, and it's refreshing to see so much emphasis put on an older couple and show that romance does truly exist for them.

I wasn't offended, justliason! Just feeling your frustration. I was never a fan of Liason but I feel for you guys. Nobody has shown more commitment and dedication. You guys deserved and still deserve better!

I'm so glad you guys included Viki and Charlie!! I *love* them! I haven't watched OLTL since the immediate aftermath of the Marty/Todd story, and one of the few things I miss about the show is the Viki/Charlie pairing.

Rex/Gigi, on the other hand, I've never really been a fan of. I thought TPTB pushed them too hard, and while I thought they were cute at first, it just became too much after awhile. I loved Farah Fath on DAYS, but as Gigi I've felt she's just too...twitchy.

I agree with all of them except for Rex and Gigi. I thought they had chemistry at first, but that quickly went away and now I FF anytime they're on.

love amber and daniel! is he really leaving? - curse the recession!

thank you for not putting lily and cane. for me they are as big a snoozefest as liz and jason.

on the other hand, thank you DC lovers of liz and jason for including sam and lucky. i'm sure that hurt some of you. Smile

but i'm confused, i feel sam has tried to stay out of their orbit except for spending time with the boys. how is that meddlesome? i mean she's been championing liz and jason.

Thank you, DC, for realizing what TIIC don't.....Liason is LOVE! Don't know why we are sharing that spot with LuSham, but still loving the props. All I want for Christmas is a shiny new pink slip with Bob Guza's and Brian Frons name on them }:)

Question: how can Liason...or Spinmax for that matter even be considered best couples? Spinmax are best friends not a couple (although they are adorable) and Liason? Uh, to be a couple don't you actually have to like see each other?? (And the safehouse doesn't count although I think they were only there maybe 3 times this year, that was merely an affair). As far as Sucky, gag me...I can't see why anyone would like them other than liason fans who want Sam paired off so she can't reunite with Jason.

Robin and Patrick are number one are you kidding me. Robin is just so judgmental and their relationship is just one of the reasons I don't even watch GH anymore. I know Robin has aids but good the woman needs to take a pill not be one. Patrick is just so blah. Sorry I usually agree with you but not here.

Liason number three is the second reason I stopped watching GH I loved Jason Morgan but when they put him with Liz(weaky) something died in him. He is just so boring.

How could you leave out Kendall and Zach who have more heat than both of these *couples combined*. What about Jesse and Angie.

Yea for two of my favorite soap couples: Danber and Spixie!! I also liked Bizzie at the beginning, but because of the way they were written they started to fell contrived. Hopefully Dinah and Shayne will make the best couples list of 2009!

Carly/Holden and Casey/Emily from ATWT just exemplify my frustration with ATWT--two great couples that the show spent forever building up to only to abruptly drop them based on some nonsensical plot point (Holden and Lily's kid falls down a well? Dusty rises from the dead? Seriously?!). But while they were on, I agree, great couples.

Rex and Gigi...have to agree with those who have said they are overrated. Frankly, I can't stand them anymore and Gigi just annoys me. Just her lip gloss alone is enough to make me ffwd through a scene.

Amber and Daniel...loves them. They would have been my number 1.

Daniel and Amber - yay! I kind of figured Taylor and Rick (B&B) wouldn't garner many votes, but I am holding out hope for my Trick reunion (although he did just accidentally kill her daughter and she's in love love with Rigid... which could cause problems Laughing out loud ).

Remember peeps... this is for all of 08 so while Gigi and Rex may irk you now... they had some great stuff play out earlier this year. I like them. I wasn't a huge Farah fan when she was on Days but I'm loving her on OLTL.

Hopefully!

... but I am holding out hope for my Trick reunion (although he did just accidentally kill her daughter...)

What does that matter?! Didn't Thorne and Taylor get together 2 weeks after she ran over his wife, Darla?

Season, good point! I need to get out to LA and mow someone down if I'm ever going to get any TLC. It works for them Shock

Oh Liason... sigh... Just think where they would be if Guza/Frons/Phelps would have given them a real chance.

Daniel and Amber at #2?!?!?! That is fabulous!!! Hoping Billy and Chloe are high up on next year's list.

Interesting list. I only watch ABC soaps and Days, so I cannot comment on the other couples.

I'm glad Viki and Charlie made the list. They were one of my favorite couples. I'm not so sure about Rex and Gigi. I like them, but they are lacking ... something. I don't know what. I feel as though TPTB missed part of the story. We didn't get to see why Rex wanted Gigi back in his life. It played out as being more about Adrianna being such a bitch and Rex bonding with Shane even though he didn't know he was his son. There was one other couple that I enjoyed more than these two - Jared & Natalie. But, oh well.

I've never liked Liason. Don't care if they are on the list. Whatever. I've liked LuSam, but I don't get the feeling they are long term (yes, I know that on GH, 6 months might be considered long term). The only one of the four that I actually like is Lucky. Sam I'm neutral about and I hate both Jason and Liz.

I do love Patrick & Robin and am happy to see them as #1. Their 3-year love story has had its ups and downs and its share of bad writing (this IS GH, after all) but both actors managed to save it even when the writing faltered. Yay for Scrubs!
