True Blood: Bill & Sookie
Bill and Sookie had a few very notable moments of passion, including Sookie's first time with Bill which was more than intense and making major use of airing on HBO, ending in Sookie telling Bill she wanted him to suck her blood... mmwhaa... yet... sexy? Then later when Bill seemed to be re-dead, Sookie wandered the graveyard in the middle of the night, only to have a hand shoot out of the earth, grab her and pull his dirt-covered naked self up on her - and wow did they not skip a beat in showing how passionately they missed each other!
Heroes: Sylar & Elle
On Heroes, we had another surprising "love" story that included some steamy romantic moments with a couple of major hotties, Elle and Sylar, made even hotter by the constant sense of danger with them more villain than good. As it turned out danger prevailed, and this time, unlike in True Blood, the blood drawn was far from sexy as Sylar slit her head open in his charming way, and immediately burned her on up - such a romantic at heart.
Gossip Girl: Blair & Chuck
More doomed love - just the way we like it in 2008 apparently! Chuck and Blair seemed like the least likely of couples when Gossip Girl began, but at the end of last season, suddenly they were totally changed and falling for each other... but this season, it was more than tumultuous with this star-crossed couple. One of the best of their moments definitely goes to "The Dark Night" where Blair had a steamy make-out scene with Chuck who was supposedly tricking her into thinking it was her British boyfriend... oh we know you knew Blair, and there's nothing sexier than a little bit of naughtiness in a blackout - and the continued heartache of one of the hottest couples who are not a couple.
House: House & Cuddy
One of the single hottest scenes of the year goes to Dr. Lisa Cuddy. So this wasn't quite a hook-up, but a massive tease that was so much steamier than many an actual love scene, that it just had to be mentioned. What man (or woman) does not have an imaginary stripping school girl Cuddy on their secret Christmas list this year?
Grey's Anatomy: Callie & Erica
I was so proud of Grey's for bringing up a gay storyline after the Isaiah Washington scandal, but unfortunately, ABC, or whatever other influences on the show, just couldn't handle it sticking around. But while it lasted, Callie and Erica's hook-up was most definitely one of the hottest TV romances of 2008! With some good, sexy moments that were just right to show the heat and emotion without getting guy-fantasy style, we got an amazing spring '08 finale kiss between them, then a short and sexy romance ending with Hahn taking off for various reasons, and Callie left confused about her sex life and preferences.
