Slings and Arrows
I do enjoy me some Bobby Cannavale.
I watched his new TV show, Cupid, last night and it's, well...did I mention how much I like Bobby Cannavale?
He's very charming (as he was playing Will's boyfriend on "Will and Grace") and the show has some nice romantic moments. However, it doesn't seem to have that special "magic" to hook a lovelorn audience for very long. His character is supposed to match 100 couples on Earth before he can return to his home on Mount Olympus.
If he connected one couple a week, that means the series would last, in theory, about four to five years.
Unfortunately, with the so-so writing and bland supporting characters, plus being up against that little "American Idol" show...
I have a feeling that Cupid may not be so lucky in love.
