Maybe you did... I didn't look back very far.

Man, I forgot all about The OC. Seth and Summer belong on the list. It's too hard to limit it to ten and still maintain decent representation.

Martin Tupper... man, that's a blast from the past. I loved that show, but mainly because my adolescent self got to see the occasional boobies. He scored almost every show.
