Saw the premiere of Valentine last night. Cute show. (And by "cute," I mean "cheese-tastic with good-looking leads.") The sound on my TV was wonky at times, so I had a hard time catching everyone's names. I think Aphrodite is calling herself Grace these days, Hercules is going by Leo, Eros goes by Danny, and a guy I think is Ares is called Ari.

Then there's Phoebe. She's the "goddess of the Oracle of Delphi." Um, yeah. Hello, TPTB? The god of the Oracle of Delphi was Apollo. I can only assume she's supposed to be Sybil.

I do like Kate, the mortal romance-novelist recruited to help the Valentines understand modern romance. I bet she'll end up being Danny's Psyche.

Yeah, this show's a lot like Cupid (which is supposed to get an update mid-season).

Sounds like my kind of show! Plus mythology! Well, that's only a good thing if they don't screw it up. Like in Troy certain movies. When/what channel is it on?

Sundays on the CW, 7 PM Central.

Hearing the gods talk about magic is something I need to get used to, but the rest of it's okay.

So I watched the pilot this morning. Entertaining! Yeah, it was weird listening to Phoebe/Sybil talk about the pool as if it were the Oracle (isn't...she the oracle?) but the rest of it is vague enough that it's okay.

Love that Danny/Eros has a gun instead of a bow and arrow (or should I say "had" a gun...*sob*). I couldn't figure out who the guy was Grace/Aphrodite pulled into the closet, though. I had to research. Apparently, he's supposed to be Hephaestus. We haven't met Ari/Ares yet. Hmm.

I was also wondering if they were setting Kate up for the Psyche role...that would end rather badly, though.

I think the Oracle refers to the person, but I'm not sure. I love Greek myth, but the Oracle of Delphi never interested me that much. I just know it was a gift from Apollo.

Huh. I couldn't hear their conversation very well, but I thought he mentioned Grace's husband, which made me think he was Ares. I really hope the DVD will have subtitles.
