Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

If you're looking for a series about love with the feel of a neverending romcom, Cupid just might fill the bill ... but it won't quite sweep you off your feet. For starters, there's no palpable chemistry between Trevor and Claire, although you get the feeling from the script that there's supposed to be. And Cannavale's Cupid? Well, he certainly looks the part. But when he opens his mouth, he sounds more like a tough-talking extra from Goodfellas. It's a curious choice, to say the least.

Criticism aside, Cupid does pull off some effective tugs at the heart strings with scenes that evoke genuine emotion (and it does so in a much more charming way than a show like the now-canceled Valentine, a series about Greek gods and goddesses living on Earth). Whether it catches on is up to the viewing public, but at least its heart is in the right place.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
