the return of cupid

once upon a time, before veronica mars and entourage, there was a show called cupid. rob thomas created it. paula marshall and jeremy piven starred in it. it was filmed in chicago. it was snappy. it was enchanting. it only lasted 15 episodes and abc cancelled it. it BROKE my heart. it was near the beginning of my long,  complicated and ongoing relationship with television.
i'm telling you this because although the new version is entertaining its missing the magic of the original. its not bad. its still rob thomas. bobby cannavale and sarah paulson are charming. ok, so its not set in chicago any more but that's no big - i see chicago everyday. its just missing some of the specialness of the original.
