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>

Still Mad At ABC
15 January 2004 | by jtseatonSee all my reviews

It's been five years since the cancellation of "Cupid" and I'm STILL mad at ABC for dropping the ball. "Cupid" was a clever, well written, original show that ABC did not know how to market. After moving it around 3 different nights and time slots, ABC finally canceled the show, claiming that there was no audience. Of course there was no audience! No one knew how to find the damn thing! Even I, a faithful viewer, had to ask, "I wonder what night Cupid will air THIS WEEK?" It was the beginning of the end for me. I mean, why tune into new, creative, original shows if the networks are just going to cancel them anyway (BEFORE they have a chance to find their audience), and instead opt to saturate their line-up with the same old crap? Hmmm... Bottom line: "Cupid" was a great show, and if there is any justice in this world, the series will be released on DVD (Why not? Everything else has been...)
