"SuperCouples" You found Boring

Recommended Posts

Ew, you reminded me of another "Super Couple" I found boring.


John & Isabella- she was a boring dog and the WORST coupling John ever had. How their love ever became iconic I'll never know. John had FAR more chemistry & potential with Marlena, Diana, and Kristen. Hell, I even liked him better with SUSAN than Izzy-B.

Don't forget Ashley & Cole, ESPECIALLY with Shari Sh!ttuck in the part. Though I don't think I'd consider them a supercouple! :lol:

The ONLY character Cole truly had chemistry with was Nikki, though the Victoria/Cole plotline showcased some EXCELLENT storytelling by Bill Bell.

CKLily and anyone. (Y&R) That girl has no chemistry at all. Not even with herself.

John and Evangeline (OLTL)

John and Marlena (Days)

Jack and Carly (ATWT) *ducks*

Jason and Sam (GH)

Sonny and Brenda (GH)

There are alot of couples that I never saw chemistry between, but I can't think of any others I would consider 'super'couples.

One thing I've realized in all of this is how many people list super-couples for Y&R. Yes Victor and Nikki are a super couple and probably Nick and Sharon, Neil and Dru, and Danny and Christine are too but for the most part I've thought of Y&R having supercouples. Ryan and Nina, Cole and Victoria, Paul and Christine etc. they were all merely simple couples to me in the grand scheme of things. Then again Y&R used their ensemble better.

I'm surprised I hadn't even posted here yet. For starters I guess I'll go with:


-Michael and Donna

-Joe and Paulina

-Dean and Jenna


-Holden and Lily after 2000 or so

-Mike and Katie

-Brad and Katie

-Hal and Barbara

-Noah and Luke


-Rick and Amber

-Nick and Brooke


-Cole and Caitlin


-Mike and Carrie

-Roman and Kate

-Austin and Sami

-Shawn and Belle for about 3/4 the time.


-Danny and Michelle

-Shane and Marina

-Frank and Eleni

-Alan-Michael and Lucy


-Cane and Lily

-Billy and Victoria

-Raul and Brittney

-Nick and Phyllis

-Danny and Christine

You BEST be duckin! The only man who failed the chemistry test with Maura was Jon Hensley, yet he still had more chemistry with her than Martha Byrne IMO

I agree on most, but I DO think the show and many fans considered Paul & Christine a supercouple at the time. They were pretty big in their heydey, location shoots and such, not to mention the Isabella storyline and its climax.

I concur that Ryan & Nina weren't a supercouple, but BOTH of the triangles they were involved in- Victoria/Ryan/Nina and Nina/Ryan/Tricia- were HUGE and storylines that lasted 2 or more years.

Oddly enough, Ryan had more chemistry with Jess Walton's Jill than ANY of his other leading ladies, yet the show foolishly never went there. It's one thing I HATED about Y&R always- they'd chem test people and never go there. It was ALWAYS couplings I wanted to see too- Ryan/Jill, Brad/Sharon, Brad/BE Ashley (I'm talking during and after her marriage to Vic- not her earlier years- wasn't watching Y&R yet).

At its best Y&R had characters who moved beyond any couple and who always had those ties, sort of like an ache, but also had an identity of their own. A prime example of this would be Ryan/Victoria for most of the 90's (I disliked Ryan, more and more over time, but I thought the show did a good job of handling their relationship).

Now, characters sit there and die when they aren't in a relationship (Nick) and suffocate when they are in a relationship (Nick).

All of them.

Honestly, super couples are what i hate the most about soaps. I always find once they become a super couple they lose what made them as characters interesting and become one. Never more prominent than with John and Marlena becoming Jarlena and never being able to be individual characters again.

      I just hate this storyline so much. And I really, really hate when awful people keep getting rewarded for their awful behavior. Both in real life and in fiction. It’s not right. Say what you will about Sonny and Carly, but they’ve at least somewhat paid for their awful behavior. Not as much as they should but it was still more than this. How can anyone treat someone that they claim to care about so terribly? And then just not care at all about that person or what they did to them? Over at Days, I hated it when Ciara did it to Theo and I hated it when Craig did it to Nancy. But Joss is worse than the two of them put together. It’s like she not even human. I find her to be even worse than Carly. I know Carly has problems being a decent person too, but she would never treat the people that she says she cares about the way that Joss treated Cam and now to a lesser extent, Spencer and Michael. And honestly, I want Joss to suffer worse than any person on GH ever has.  I have absolutely no idea what the writers, or Frank are thinking with the way this storyline is being written. And do they seriously think that this consolation prize crap of Cam going to play soccer for Stanford (and Trina constantly reminding us of it) makes everything better? It doesn’t. 
    • I hesitate to post Thompson, who is just a gleeful gossip hound. But this thread is instructive, even if much of it is stuff we all could've told the GOP and the NY Times six months ago.  
    • Sure. They've been sent to live on a farm with other not gone actors where they can run and play.
    • From what I can find, Tim was datie Evie but got a job offer out of town that was too good to pass up and left in Nov 76. No mention of Pam and no reason I could see that a marriage would be mentioned later. I just checked Soap Central and there is an entry stating Evie left town and Pam and Tim were married. Not so.This is not the first false entry I have come across at that site. Someone takes delight at posting false info.
    • She's under Ryan (I added this).  Pam married Tim at some point-- from what I read. If not, let me know.
