TV show description:
As their name suggests, the Valentine family wants everyone to be in love. Living in a mansion in Hollywood, California, they’re determined to help soulmates connect. But this family isn’t like any other group of matchmakers — they’re actually Greek gods who are posing as mortals.

Grace “Aphrodite” Valentine (Jaime Murray) is the matriarch of the family and believes in love very strongly. Her son Danny or “Eros” (Kristoffer Polaha) has a much more pragmatic view; he carries a magical gun that he can use to make subjects temporarily fall in love. Unfortunately Danny is sometimes too busy in his own conquests to worry about helping others find his/her match.

Strongman Leo or “Hercules” (Robert Baker) works with Danny and tries to keep him on the right path. Phoebe (Autumn Reeser), the “Goddess of the Oracle of Delphi”, tells the group who they need to help. She oversees the Oracle, the mansion’s pool, that reveals soulmate identities and what will happen if the gods can’t work their magic.

As the gods soon discover, getting people together in the modern world is no easy task. Busy lifestyles and technology like e-mail and instant messaging make it difficult to get potential lovers even in the same room. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

So, when Grace meets romance novelist Kate Providence (Christine Lakin) at a book reading, she convinces Kate to help in her family’s mission. Together, they’ll have to think of creative ways to bring soulmates together so that hopefully, they’ll be together for an eternity. If the gods can’t bring more love to the world, they’re doomed to disappear forever.

    It figures that Cw would get rid of one of the few Tv shows in their line up that does not reek of mindless teenage dribble. The acting is superb wit a very talented cast and the story line is sweet and funny. Why not get rid on one tree hill or take it to another station surely if America Got Talent can be now for more than 8 show so can something that was nominated for a peoples choice award.

    I really wish the CW would at least air the four episodes they had made but never showed. At least put them online or something. :(

    I loved this show! Just when a story arc was approaching the series was pulled, at least put the episodes online or something! I really loved the romantic, funny and mysterious elements to this show. The cast was great, the premise. I think maybe the channel and or advertising was to blame for the low viewers.
