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>

If any show needs a DVD release, this is it
7 March 2004 | by sleestakerSee all my reviews

It's a testament to the strength of the writing on this show that 5 years later people still bemoan its cancellation. This was the next to last show I watched regularly on network television (the last was Freaks & Geeks which has finally been released on DVD, thank God!).

This was a brilliant show. I tried to explain it to a friend and failed. The stars had an abundance of chemistry and the show was a great balance of comedy, romance and drama. I was hoping Bravo would show it on "Brilliant but Canceled" or Lifetime would show a marathon or something, but to no avail. Now I'm hoping for a DVD release.

Maybe Cupid fans should petition Rob Thomas.
