Paradise Lost In The Media

Recommended Posts

Paradise Lost Is a Lethargic Southern Mystery Drama


There is an endless supply of small towns with dark secrets in movies and TV series, which means that any new story about uncovering the seedy underbelly of a seemingly placid community needs a strong hook to distinguish itself. On top of that, there are now so many slow-burn mystery series on TV taking an entire season to solve a single long-buried crime, that any show presenting its own prolonged crime-solving narrative needs to make each reveal and red herring as compelling as possible. Paradise Lost, the latest original scripted series from the Spectrum cable system, fails on both accounts, centering on a generic town full of generic secrets that are tediously uncovered one tiny clue at a time.
