Critic Reviews

    Cannavale lays on the charm rather thick, but, for the most part, he carries the role with enough animated panache to keep Trevor engaging. His chemistry with Paulson limps along, relying too much on the clich├ęd banter that pits her cautious approach against his impulsive perspective.
  2. Cupid seeks to lure thirtyish women, prized by advertisers, by reviving a supposedly romantic old show that, besides being poorly scheduled, was sappy and annoying, too. This time around, at least they've got the schedule fixed.

    Throughout the show, his behavior is quirky and smug in cloying and annoying ways, which seems a self-destructive miscalculation.
  4. Sticking with Cupid requires a certain attachment to the idea of a Claire-Trevor love connection, one apparent only in moody glances and pronounced opposition rather than in even the faintest semblance of chemistry. In any other series Claire and Trevor would go out for a hot dog once and realize that they were actually much better off with their respective exes.
