  • Roman gods are alive and well in 1980's L.A.

    This was a fair episode, but I know I've seen better ones in this series.

    In it, the Roman gods Cupid and Bacchus are alive and well in 1980's Los Angeles. Cupid's heart is broken and he can't work his magic as well as he used to.

    Cupid tries his magic on a yuppie and it fails. Eventually, after the yuppie goes to extremes to mend cupid's heart, he meets the woman with which he has been cursed to have an unrequited love.

    What's most interesting about this episode is how it reveals the native values of 1980's yuppie culture. It shows the materialistic drive. It comments on how "crazy" one would have to be to abandon one's hollow quest for money and material possesions in order to fall in love.
