Good casting makes something special out of this rom com
This is your general rom com, but the casting of Bobby Cannavale was a great choice, because his sweet smile, general naive charm and gorgeous face really liven this show up. The rest of the regular cast is nothing spectacular, but the guest stars of the couples "Cupid" pairs each week seem to be above the average for TV these days.
I'd like to see it delve a little deeper into issues, both of the romantic nature and of mental disorders. I think this show could really touch people if it takes itself a little more seriously.
I'd also like to point out that this is a great show with a fantasy element, yet there are no special effects of any kind. It focuses on the relationships (I'm talking to you, Heroes.).
All in all, I watch it on abc.com every week, but I don't make time to watch it live like I do Chuck.
