Cupid returns

So I’ve been thinking that the rise of Jeremy Piven’s star and the cult success of Veronica Mars (by creator Rob Thomas) might finally get us a DVD set of the partial-season-running Cupid, an enjoyable light drama about a guy who may (or may not) be Cupid and his efforts to bring people together.
But I didn’t expect ABC to revive the series. Yes, there have been series seen originally as failures brought back to life successfully (think Star Trek: the Next Generation or Battlestar Galactica), but those are things that were much more visible than Cupid ever was. I doubt the new version is relying on the existing fan base the way those other series did. It will be interesting to see if they can pull this together; it’s really no less likely a success than other things being launched, and in a textural way it was a series more of today than of its day. Here’s hoping that, with whoever they cast in the lead, it is as magic as it was, and more successful as well.
