ETA: How dumb was Clifford to leave such a detailed message on a stranger's answering machine. Even assuming Jack called him from Sarah's house, it screams contrivance to me.
For quite a while, I thought the statistician was being introduced as Claire's new boyfriend, taking the role of Joe Flanigan in the original. That turned out to not be the case. The Date-Well match was handled well enough, with Claire strongly opposed to the match she had been given. I enjoyed seeing her knowing something that Trevor didn't, obviously deduced from their choices of pseudonyms. She chose the Art Deco author, and I'll bet he entered as Cupid_The-God-Of-Love. Who else would he go as?

I forgot 1.0 boyfriend was Joe Flannigan. Now, all I can think of is Stargate.
Season finale, my ass. I mostly liked the episode. They put in conventional twists, but in different places. I love Alexie Gilmore, but the girl cannot get on a successful TV show.

I loved the look Trevor gave Claire at the end, when she realized he knew they had been matched together. I didn't think they had much chemistry before, but that may have changed my mind...

I was watching a commercial with a hot mom that filled the bill that Cupid does, and that's what I thought of. With six episodes, you have two pretty brunette moms, the brunette with banks and a soft heart, a brunette who was attracive by dressed kind of drab, the hot brunette with a taste for danger and a fiery southern redhead.
I guess Claire is the only blonde allowed in the mix.

Otherwise it was another pedestrian episode of a pedestrian remake of a series that I used to love but am now struggling mightily to remember why!

In a lot of ways I liked Cupid 1.0 because I liked Paula Marshall. But when I think about the show, I remember that it seemed to lose me near the end of it's (only) season. Not enough for me to not want to watch, but it was getting off focus.
I like Cupid 2.0 because of the romcom factor. Contrary to my earlier opinions, I think the Trevor/Claire arc is going slower and that's probably a good thing. I don't know if I like one more than the other, but I like both of them.
