I’m with CUPID

Filed under: TV — posted by Chris @ 10:22 am

I’ll admit it — I like ABC’s Cupid.

Now, I loved the original Cupid with Jeremy Piven and Paula Marshal. (Has it really been 10 years? Yikes!) So much so, I took note of the creator’s name, Rob Thomas, and when Veronica Mars was making its debut I actually checked it out because it was by “the guy who did Cupid!” Although it lacks the grit and, well, Piven of 1998’s Cupid, the new version retains much of the spirit of the old show, making it a highly watchable hour of TV. (Also available¬†online.)

I’d like to recommend it to readers of this blog because, like Breakup Girl, Cupid mixes rational, practical themes in relationships with an unabashedly romantic, hopeful spirit. The two sides here are represented by Sarah Paulson as a relationship expert/psychologist and her sort-of patient Bobby Cannavale who may or may not be the Greek god Cupid. If you are expecting a show where “Cupid” is always right and the jaded psychologist is always wrong, you would be disappointed. Rob Thomas keeps it real. Ish. And even when the A plot gets their happily ever after, the B plot ends in disappointment.

The show stays grounded because Cannavale’s Cupid-ness is never completely confirmed. This ambiguity is brilliant. Without that grounding, the whole affair could have spun off into a huge mess like UPN’s TheCW’s Valentine. The difference between the two is really Rob Thomas. Let’s face it, without him, Veronica Mars would have simply been Nancy Drew.
