Storyline

Trevor Hale is attractive, witty, uncommonly intelligent - and he may be Cupid, the Greco-Roman god of erotic love. Probably not, but he thinks so. Trevor's insistence that he is Cupid lands him in a mental hospital, where he meets psychologist Claire Allen, a renowned authority on romance. Trevor tells Claire that he has been stripped of his godly powers by Zeus, and exiled from Mount Olympus as a punishment for arrogance. To win his way back among the gods, Trevor must unite 100 couples in everlasting love, without his bow and arrows. Claire does not believe in Cupid, but she risks her career by releasing Trevor from the hospital, assuming responsibility for his behavior. Trevor finds work as a bartender, and regularly disrupts Claire's group therapy sessions. All the while, he plots his campaign to promote romance, and earn his way back to Olympus. While encouraging sexual abandon in others, Trevor remains celibate; he believes sex with a mortal will confine him to Earth forever. Written by <starcro@gte.net>

Brilliant
6 September 2001 | by Sarah-60See all my reviews

I'm another UK fan who only just discovered the show, only to find it has already been cancelled in the US.

As a huge Jeremy Piven fan, I was excited when I saw the show listed in the TV guide a few weeks ago, and I was not disappointed by a single episode (which I had to tape each day as it was shown in the daytime). It was different - witty, touching but not saccharine, and with something to say. Piven was showcased to perfection. I can only echo everyone else's disappointment and mystification as to why such an intelligent and innovative show was cancelled - but maybe I just answered my own question.
