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>

User Reviews

Best romantic show on TV....Ever
3 July 2003 | by Reanes1-1See all my reviews

Brilliantly written, expertly acted and genuinely insightful, Cupid was a hallmark show for television. I'm a 40 year old man and I found myself shedding a few tears at the heartfelt issues that it dealt with. This was a stellar comedy that gave credit to the viewers' intelligence. Like a Shakespearean play, the comedy was used to pull you in while their sweet message of interpersonal relationships was delivered in an intelligent, unpatronizing way. Jeremy Piven is my newest hero. He is the embodiment of what every intelligent man should be; fun without fear, self assured without being cocky and sensitive without being a wimp. What can I say about Paula Marshall; extraordinarily beautiful with an Einstein I.Q. that radiates through her eyes. This was an amazing show and I would buy every episode if I could get my hands on them.
