It’s that time of year again! Time for the Daytime Confidential’s MEGA-sized year Best and Worst podcast. Join Luke, Jamey, Jillian and Regan for three plus hours of hilarity as they name their picks for Best and Worst of 2010 in Daytime Confidential’s always unorthodox year end podcast.
Find out which actors and characters they believe were Most Improved in 2010 and which talented actors were the Biggest Waste of Talent. Dreams Really Do Come True, but sometimes it’s better to Be Careful What You Wish For because things don’t always turn out as expected. That certainly happened in 2010. The Daytime Confidential gang argued about their favorite couples, triangles and quads a lot in 2010 so of course they name their Best Couple, Best Triangle and Best Quad. This also wouldn’t be the DC year end podcast without our Most in Need of a Makeover, Most in Need of a Roll in the Hay, Most Tortured Couple, Glittery Hoo-Hoo, Biggest Ho Ho Ho, Magical Penis of the Year and Guy Whose Chestnuts We Want Roasted Over an Open Fire categories.
The DC crew then gets down to the biggest of the Best and Worst categories, taking on Best and Worst Storyline, Soap opera Scenery Chewer of the Year, The Charity Rahmer Award For Babies Who Don’t Know Who They Are, The Megan McTavish Award for Special Achievement in Serial Drama Dismantling and Best and Worst Daytime Drama.
All these categories and more in this, Daytime Confidential’s Best and Worst of 2010 podcast.
