Tv Season Info
The Paradise blew its budget on fancy packaging and forgot about the product. I was left feeling short-changed.
It will engage - though not obsess - those of us who enjoy parsing out the morals and manners of another time and place.
The first episode was such a pastiche, it's hard to see how Wood could manage to send it up any further.
The dramas, rivalries, kindnesses and treacheries begin almost at once, and as in all the best PBS series, they are well-drawn. Only the finest soap.
The Paradise's eight-hour journey eventually resolved itself into an unequal tussle between love and pragmatism.
