DC's 10 Worst Soap Opera Couples of 2012
No 3: Liam and Hope, The Bold and the Beautiful
What a difference a year makes. The Bold and the Beautiful's Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and Hope Logan (Kim Matula) made our 10 Best Couples of 2011 list. This year, a myriad of botched weddings, failed marriage license filings, cartoonish obstacles and more repetitive dialogue than the script editor of a 20-minute program should have ever allowed, had us hating the star-crossed lovers.
Clifton and Matula are solid performers with real chemistry, but their storyline gets really old, really fast. Here's hoping that since Brad Bell is previewing Hope fighting to get Liam back from Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) in 2013, he will come up with a fresh way to sell the triangle; and please, enough with all the rehashing and flashing back to stuff that just happened the freaking day before. Aspen is pretty, but it ain't that damn pretty!
