Television Musings - Rants and Raves of a Romance Writer

By Kathy Carpenter


Hey I don’t see my last post. It said it posted, oh well. This week I want to talk about two shows, One old and one new,

The first one is Cupid. Only natural for a romance writer, right? Can anyone tell me if this is the same show from six or seven years ago? I remember watching a show call Cupid. The show was on a few times and we really liked it, then it was cancelled. After watching this week I believe this is the same premise. My sister does not remember the show and thinks I’m crazy. Any help proving to her this show was on before would be appreciated. Anyway, this guy thinks he is Cupid and needs to bring together 100 couples in true love to be returned home to Mt Olympus. He was put in a physiatrics hospital. The female lead helped him to get released, (she was tricked), and must now watch over him. It;s one of those feel good shows because it’s almost like magic when the right two people meet and come together,

The second show I wanted to talk about is Medium. They gave Alison a new power this week. And it’s rather unique. It’s a buzzer sound. Yeah you heard me right, a buzzer. Whenever someone lies this buzzer goes off and only she can hear the noise. She knows when her kids lie, her husband, and of course the bad guys.

Whether this was a one time show or not I’m not sure. You may say she already knows the bad guys from her dreams. Well she doesn’t always know for sure what her dreams mean. But now she has the help of a buzzer.

You are not crazy and it was only about two years ago. I never watched it, but I remember it receiving good reviews. It was also on ABC!
