in consequence of the missive, Anyone planning to watch THE PARADISE?, penned by Terry R
The Paradise aired in the UK before Mr Selfridge and I made comparisons at the time saying I enjoyed The Paradise more. I bought the DVD set at the end, loaned it to a friend around a year ago and just got it back last week!
I did watch the full Mr Selfridge series because it grew on me and we know I am a sucker for any period piece. I also think these two series offer a bit of history with regard to retail and the department store as we know it today so I enjoyed that aspect. By coincidence, Mr Selfridge is in weekly reruns now and I am watching.
The Paradise takes place in the 1807s IIRC so it is not an exact comparison. That will make a nice difference for you. I think I'll watch my DVDs at the same time so I can stay in sync with the conversation.
