The Paradise is so well written and cast one wonders why on earth the second season hasn't been released in the USA. It's so terrible to be awaiting this wonder work of fine writing, acting and period detail. This series is soooo superior to Mr. Selfridge one can't understand why BBC is holding back. I've heard the ratings dropped during the second season in England but here in the US we are starved for more seasons of this brilliantly well written series. Please reconsider a 3rd season and give all respectable, discerning viewers in the US a third season.....please! I've told every friend to watch it( I have a few) and they have all loved the series. We have taken to watching season 1 over and over just to satisfy ourselves while we wait for the 2nd season. PLEASE! There is so,so little to watch on TV which is sophisticated, decent and well done on ALL levels. You are all to be applauded but first send us the 2nd season!

The Paradise is a fantastic new series by the BBC: it's basically a Victorian period episodic soap drama, telling bit by bit the story of Denise, a young woman who comes to be a shop girl in a store during Victorian times...the focus is on the ladies portion of the shop, where they sell dresses, hats and more...the lovely colors, fabrics, silks, and love and lust stories intertwined with the intrigue and interest, combine to form a beautifully filmed and storyline of, well, awesomeness! I would definitely recommend the Paradise, as another great BBC, however beware content for young childen (innuendo, adultery, man/woman in bedroom shown together, no full nudity though)...please note this is a Region 2 DVD, so is only playable in region zero or region free players...ENJOY!!

Looking for a stately British period piece about a burgeoning retail empire? No, I'm not talking about "Mr Selfridge." Prior to the ITV Studios depiction of London's elite shopping emporium Selfridges in 2013, the BBC had already unleashed the handsome production "The Paradise" in 2012. Somebody has a love of shopping! Or maybe they just think that the birth and heyday of department stores makes a sexy setting for romantic entanglements and personal intrigue! Of course, "Mr Selfridge" was the first to receive distribution in the North American market being picked up by Masterpiece Theater, undoubtedly due to the presence of Jeremy Piven in the lead role. But don't let that dissuade you from sampling "The Paradise." Ostensibly based on the novel "The Ladies' Paradise" (Au Bonheur des Dames) by Emile Zola, the adaptation may not fully satisfy purists looking for Zola's vision. There are glimpses of his style, but this is a decidedly soapier affair. But that's not all bad for a TV series. And this one does share many of the same charms as "Mr Selfridge" and boasts comparable production values (though without so many ostentatious hats). Truthfully, I was not a huge fan of the over-sized Piven performance in "Mr Selfridge," so I thought this more restrained approach worked even better.

Okay, that's it. I won't mention that other show again! The comparison just seems inevitable, so I thought I'd address it right away.

"The Paradise" details the formation of the first department store in the North of England circa the 1870s. This glamorous environment is a backdrop for the intertwined stories of the workers, traders, and shoppers who have made the Paradise part of their world. Initially, we see things from the outside.

The BBC have really excelled themselves with this masterpiece. If you like nothing better than emerging yourselves in the lives of those from Victorian times, then this DVD is for you. We loved the costumes, the gorgeous set and the beautifully developed characters. It is great to see some of our favourite Lark Rise to Candle ford actors playing both main cast roles and supporting roles. Highly recommended!

I have seen this English period drama series in England, and it is wonderful. The story that takes place in the Victorian era, so if you loved Downton Abbey, you will love The Paradise. The music is wonderful. The sets are beautiful. It is set in a the first department store in London. It is very unlike Mr. Selfridge. You will fall in love with the story, and its characters. Beautifully done....and yes there is a bit of romance and quite a cliffhanger in the first series. Series two is now filming!

While I'm certain I would LOVE this series, I haven't been able to watch it because I wasn't aware that "region codes" existed. Apparently, this is a region 2 dvd set. All dvd players sold in the US, however, are region 1. I've read that you can hack your player but am not willing to do this. I take responsibility for not being a more informed consumer and although there was a reference made in the description, it should have been made clear for the buyers who've never heard of this. I purchased both seasons and am thoroughly enjoying the dvd cases.
