Strike TV Club
Check out Alan Sepinwall's Strike TV Club. The first show he offers up is the pilot for Cupid. Cupid was one of my favorite TV shows. First, great writing. Intelligent, witty. The references fly like a Gilmore Girls Marathon. I like a show where I have to reach to catch things. Secondly, Jeremy Piven. I love to watch him perform because it always looks like he's having so much fun. In Cupid, Piven plays Eros, the God of Love, kicked to the curb by the Olympians and given the task of uniting 100 couples before he can return to Mount Olympus. Or is he? I would have loved to see the pitch for this series.
