I think Carl should be punished for cheating with those pairs! It was hard enough as it is getting ones favourites down to 10. angry.png It's too bad poor Steph Forsythe couldn't make either of our lists.

Den, Angie & Sharon Watts, David Wicks, Carol Branning, Bianca Jackson, Pat Butcher - EastEnders

Kathy Bates, Viv Windsor, Scott Windsor, Eric Pollard, The Sugden family - Emmerdale Farm

Oh yes, Ray Langton. The last time Deirdre was likeable. Love Dennis too. This sad return appearance, which seems to have zero purpose (Collinson SUCKS and has killed Corrie), detracts.

I think Carl should be punished for cheating with those pairs! It was hard enough as it is getting ones favourites down to 10. angry.png It's too bad poor Steph Forsythe couldn't make either of our lists.

I forgot about her but she was fantastic.

I can't separate them. They were wonderful double acts. As incredible as Annie was she was never the same without Jack.

    • I really liked Joey giving Tripp encouragement and playing matchmaker for him and Wendy. They have really good brother chemistry. The only thing is I wish is that they had discussed Tripp’s failed relationships and how he might be reluctant to get into another relationship because he doesn’t want to get his heart broken again. But I enjoyed their scenes. And, agreed with Wendy that Tripp always rates a hug  Please register in order to view this content I also liked how charming Johnny was today with Wendy and with Chanel too. He could give Alex a few lessons Today was a perfect example of why I don’t have sympathy for Alex and probably never will. If he really, truly cared for Stephanie, the so called love of his life, he wouldn’t be acting like this. And due to RSW’s portrayal, it doesn’t come off as anger or lashing out in order to soothe his feelings, it just comes off as him not caring. Regardless, I do like how messy this is all getting and I hope it gets even messier. 
    • The media who are going on about how much fun and 'like Parliament' the braying at the SOTU was, while blaming 'both sides,' are disgusting people. It's all fun fun fun to them, as our country grinds to a complete halt.
    • Lucy should have just retired, aside from game show or talk show appearances. Her efforts in the '70s and '80s were beneath her (Stone Pillow may have been more of a success but it further wrecked her health). She probably should have tried being a game show host, or producing a game show, as she loved them. It's just that she was, supposedly, incredibly lonely at home, so kept trying and trying.

    • I wasn’t watching the soap Texas but apparently actors Benjamin Hendrickson and Tom Wiggin were both in the cast before both landed at As The World Turns as Detective Hal Munson and Kirk Anderson.
