This show was pretty bad
19 May 2006 | by shaman1969See all my reviews

This show was pretty bad but unlike the person who wrote the previous review I wouldn't say it was the worst show ever on Australian television.There have been a couple of Australian shows worse than Paradise Beach. One of those shows was an early eighties show called Holiday Island.It was a soapie set in a resort on a tropical island.The series which was supposed to be set in Queensland was mostly filmed in Melbourne.There were some scenes where you could actually see the goose bumps on the actors because they were so cold from filming scenes wearing swimwear during a Melbourne winter.There was even a scene where you could see condensation from the breaths of the actors.Yes the acting in Paradise Beach was terrible however there were some interesting faces who appeared in the series such as Matt Latanzi(Olivia Newton Johns ex-husband), Isla Fisher from Scooby Doo and The Wedding Crashers and Ingo Rademacher from Another World.It was good to watch if you like to see hunks or babes in scantily clad swimwear.The story lines at the beginning were pretty terrible but towards the series end they really started to improve and the show really started to pick up.Unfortunately though that all came too late and the show was canceled.
