TV Series Review: The Paradise (Season 1)

Denise Lovett is a young country girl with only her wits to live on after showing up in a Northern city to take up a long-held promise of work in her uncle's drapery shop. She soon finds out though that her uncle cannot afford to employ her as most of his customers have been seduced away by the The Paradise, the country's first department store, across the street. She ends up being forced to take a job at The Paradise and falls in love with its surroundings and reckless owner, John Moray.

I have a thing of finding  series by accident. The Paradise is no exception. I think i saw the poster somewhere and then i checked it out? No idea really..with so many things that i watch..

The Paradise is a period tv series based on Emile Zola's novel. The novel is based in France while the series are based in England. After that, i don't know what other difference exists.

I have to admit i really had my doubts with this one, because really how interesting the life in a shop can be right? How wrong i was...From the people who visit Paradise, to The Paradise's story, Moray's mystery on his wife's death, the creepy Jonas who writes eveything that happens in Paradise, the romance, the situation of the small shops...everything and i mean everything is interesting, well written and really well acted!! I can not tell you how surprised i was! 

The Paradise is a beautiful series, quite different than Downton Abbey i was watching (different period too but you get the point), and brings a smile and some light instead. Well done BBC!! Can't wait for Season 2!!
