    For me, I have always loved Liz with Jason (Billy or Steve). For me it must be a preference in general for Liz over Sam. Jason and Sam are a bore to me, but I know we all have our preferences.

    I second that. I just don’t see any chemistry between them.

    Susan < I love Jason and Sam together. I love Nick and Elizabeth together.

    Billy Miller and Rebecca Herbst have great chemistry. Kelly Monaco and former Jason, Steve Burton had chemistry. Now that Billy Miller is Jason, the chemstry game changed. I hope TPTB take advantage of Billy And Rebecca’s chemstry instead of trying to force the old chemistry of Steve and Kelly onto Billy…that ship has passed. Also the best ever chemistry that Kelly had with someone has always been Michael Easton, no matter who he is playing. You really have to go with what works.

    I have to agree, while I’m not a huge fan of Kelly Monaco, I do love her chemistry with Michael. That man can make anyone likeable. Haha!

    Yes he does!

    Sandy J. replied

    I totally agree with Yvonne’s comments, as well as Michelle’s. The writers would be doing everyone a great service by seeing who has the better chemistry with whom when new actors come on the show. Billy Miller and Becky Herbst bring out the best in each other; I can’t say the same for Billy and Kelly.

    It’s a soap everyone lies. JaLammers need to realize this is a soap and not real life and Lucky was her childhood not her adulthood.

    Yes, I’m voting for Liz&Jason, what an accomplishment to get a soap couple competing with primetime couples! Every soap fan (except Jasammers of course, lol) should be voting on this poll! It’s great exposure for GH, especially. I am, admittedly, more Liason than Jasam, but I honestly would vote for Jasam if they were the ones on the poll. I’d vote for any soap couple that has the cajones to go up against Clexa! LOL

    They’re okay but none of Billy Miller’s GH pairings grab me. They’re a tiny bit better than Jasam but that’s not saying much because those two are a cure for insomnia.

    I loved Liz with Jason when he had no memory and was going by jake, now that he’s ” Jason ” agian I’m sort of turned off by his selfriteous attitude, so he can go back to Sam and be selfriteous and boring together. I prefer Liz to find new love with griffin.

    JimL…Finn and Roxie…might as well since we didn’t have any real great daytime romance choices.

    I thought romance was what soaps were known for but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. It just seems they miss a lot of steps in between before they “do the thing.” Noted that Anna/Finola said to the shrink in her submission that she and Duke had a real love affair, not just a quickie infatuation that is all too often being passed off as true love.

    It’s a long survey with multiple tv couples from primetime. But, you don’t have to answer every matchup. Just pick the ones you like. I didn’t answer for any shows that I don’t watch (which were a lot of them). Liz & Jason were the only daytime couple in the survey.

    Jason with Sam, well– Sam absolutely makes me sick, cringe, ufda!
    I like Billy/Jason, I really like him but because of stomach wrenching Sam I have to FF Jason .
    I just can not, can not have Sam on my screen it is the worst character, ever.
    So– until Billy/Jason is far away from Sam I can not watch my Billy :( and that makes me want Sam the next kill-off more than anyone. GH would do much better without that character <—

    I'm 100% for Liz and Jason, they were very good together !
    LIZ & JASON !!!!

    I have no dog in this fight but must confess that Liz and Jason have a lot more chemistry than Sam and Jason this time around. I am not sure why–who can explain this intangible thing called chemistry?
    That said, I want Lizzy to run away from Jason with nary a look back.

    When did Jason say No? Plus if you look at the polls there were a lot of couples on there that were not couples. This is a big accomplishment for daytime

  27. FlameGirl says:

    I voted! I emailed the link to my friends and family who watch the show, or used to at least. It’s so cool for Day Time to be represented in this poll ! I think that’s almost more important than who the couple is :)

    James R. Poissant replied

    I felt the same way—any recognition this genre can get can only help. Really makes me sad that the numbers for all the shows are as low as they are and that we only have 4 soaps as opposed to the nice handful we used to have. It helps that I do like Jason and Liz as much as I do.

    maddiehayes replied

    Exactly. Liz was thrown under the bus to make Jasam happen. Even a non-shipper can see that.

    tatiana replied

    I sometimes have to wonder if Liason fans even watch the show. Billy had foggy memories about Sam from the beginning. He was living with Liz and Helena brainwashed him to kill Sam and he couldn’t do it because he had memories about making love to Sam. That was his first memory of Sam which happened before he fell in love with Liz. Seriously, get your facts straight. I am not a Jasam fan either as I am just not crazy about this BM in the role of Jason but it irks me when Liason fans keep spouting off incorrect info like its gospel.

    Liz has been known to lie and manipulate to get her man and then regret it and cry and cry when she gets caught. How was this any different?

    In any case, I am surprised that they made it to this poll. They have no chemistry and there are so many better couples on the soaps: Patch/Kayla, Abby/Chad, Julian/Alexis, Franco/Nina, Victor/Nikki, Jack/Phyllis etc. etc. The list goes on…..

    tatiana replied

    Sorry I meant Jason, not Billy.

    Jason and Sam fans are actively voting for the other couple. Instead of doing what would give GH more exposures . Sad and petty. However, it proves what I have said all alone ng. They to know that Liason is a better couple then JaLame or they wouldn’t feel threatened. I would never vote for JaLamme so if they didn’t vote I would get that but starting a Twitter campaign to vote for the other couple. Makes them Pathetic.

    Instead of galvanizing the troops to vote for Liaison, I would rather folks put their energy into getting folks out there to vote…….vote on real issues, real candidates. What a colossal waste of time and energy.

  36. Mary SF says:

    I can’t believe with so many great soap couples these two are the ones that made it to this stage in the voting– they were alright, but hardly the greatest soap couple let alone the greatest on television and considering most of their story happened in 2015, one wonders how they made it this far.

    MissySnow replied

    Your mileage may vary, but Liason has been around since 1999!

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    You have a point, but since the poll is about TV couple 2016 I was assuming they were speaking about this recent incarnation of Liz and Jason-so my original point stands but I respect fan love for any couple on any soap and meant no disrespect — just don’t think they were a couple long enough this year to make this poll, but you’re right I don’t have the whole history of the couple, so I will gracefully accept your correction

    Nikki replied

    I would like to know who they competed against? Is it just the best couple for G.H.?

    Reply

    maddiehayes replied

    No, it’s the best TV couple, PERIOD. e!online is a very well-known website, and covers entertainment of all kinds. Liz&Jason was the only soap couple to make the poll. Competing with the likes of Castle, Bones, Outlander, Once Upon a Time, etc.

  40. Linda says:

    I like BH and I like Liz, but I hope that this was the last of her with Jasom for a long time. I do not think pairing Liz with Jason has done anything positive for her in a long time. When Jason helped Liz after Lucky “died” there were amazing scenes! When SBu left and came back I thought there were some good Liason scenes, but I have enjoyed each re-pairing less and less since early 2000. Liz can be such a strong character but I do not enjoy who she is now with Jason. There has just always been some big secret or lie that keeps me from really enjoying the relationship. Let Liz be with a leading man where the story and relationship can be about them. I get that GH probably wants to play off of fan wars, but it is at a detriment to the characters and story. Liz has been stuck with being pulled in the middle of Jason and Sam since like 2006. The character is so much more than that so PLEASE, GH, write for that!!!!

  41. Rose says:

    As much as I want a soap couple to win, Liz and Jason just don’t do it for me. Since romance is supposed to be a staple of the soaps, maybe the writers should pick up on the fact that “love in the afternoon” has been MIA for a long time.

    Sad thing is Michael. Jason and Sam fans are so jealous of the chemistry of Liason and know they are the better couple. That they are campaigning and voting for a couple they don’t even know. So instead of just not voting because it’s not their couple. They are screwing GH chance to get some real exposure. So pathetic!!!! However, it does show how afraid of the chemistry of Liason. Billy and Be key have so much more chemistry then Kelly and Billly. Every non GH watcher I showed clips to agreed. They agree deep down to or they wouldn’t be so threatened. It’s just St so pathetic to start a Twitter campaign to vote again Liason.

    that’s right, that just shows how many dedicated fans they have! And yet, GH has chosen to never give those fans what they want. I know, I know, they can’t have both Jasam & Liason as endgame. But they could have at least let Liason get married and be happy for a little while (and not with a lie between them either!) Those fans have been waiting 16 years, it’s outrageous for GH to deny them for so long. I wouldn’t blame Liasons if they got fed up and quit watching.

  48. Ari says:

    I consider myself an original Liason fan. I loved SB and Becky’s Liason. When Billy Miller joined GH, I was interested to see how his Jason would work with Elizabeth. Immediately I saw great playful and at times sexy chemistry, but the moment it was clear that he was Jason , I knew the story would be unjust. I knew that eventually BM was brought back to GH to reunite Jasam. So the so called love story we got for Jason and Elizabeth was half hearted, tainted with lies and deceit. I could not get on board with the new Liason, because it was all a big setup for a dramatic jasam reunion. It NEVER EVER was about Jason and Elizabeth. I don’t know how the Liason fans could find any joy in them. However, I do think that Billy & Becky work well together. Too bad they were never intended to be. Just think of Liason was the end game and if the writers wrote a true love story for them. It would have been AMAZING.

    As for Jasam, well they never were a couple I enjoyed very much. Still I’m not going to say they are boring , well yes they are boring, but Biilly and Kelly do have chemistry. How can they not. Aren’t they dating in real life. It’s kind of unfair that they get the love story, and Liason got the shaft. I hate that because Jason and Elizabeth really did love each other and mutually agreed to part way. Now with the new re-wright of Liason, they have it almost impossible for them to ever be a couple by having Elizabeth deceive him like she did. Talk about crap all over a favorite couple. That said, I will vote for Liason to honor their history and to help a genre I truly love , Go vote all, do it for GH ! Next year your couple may make the list.

Bring back Greg Vaughn’s version of Lucky or someone new. The only boring couple is Maxie and Nathan and Nathan with anyone.
