Trivia

The production schedule has been somewhat unorthodox and unpredictable for viewers. Originally 52 episodes were shot in a batch, then aired on Showcase in 2001 for it's first season. Then, new episodes stopped appearing until 2004, leaving many to think the show was canceled. A new batch of 26 episodes began airing in the fall of 2004. Then no more news about the show was given leading to people thinking, once more, that the show had been canceled. However it was renewed for another season of 26 episodes which aired in 2008.

Quotes

Mayor Pete Braga: The truth is, I am your father.
Roxy Hunter: Why are you telling me this now?
Mayor Pete Braga: Because you deserve to know. I would've told you years ago but I didn't out of respect for your mother.
Roxy Hunter: Out of respect? All those years living in that fancy house, watching me grow up in that shitty trailer! Was that out of respect for my mum too?
Mayor Pete Braga: I deserved that.
Roxy Hunter: You deserve a lot worse.

Canadian Melrose, campy but pretty good...
18 September 2001 | by (Calgary, Canada) – See all my reviews

Paradise Falls debuted with strong advertising last summer. I always look forward to watching the double episodes Monday nights. Those Canadians lucky enough to get it, should watch it some time. It's quite good.

Comparable with Melrose Place or any other primetime drama - Paradise Falls has it all. Murder, mystery, mayhem. It's storylines are drawn out but quickly displayed. While it has all the necessary elements of a nightly "soap", it also has that noticeable Canadian atmosphere to it - which can be good or bad..

The acting is good, cheesy at times - an error of script, not skill. Characters are well played out, and there is strong contrast of good and bad people. You like the ones you should, you hate the ones you should.

I understand that this is only a half year show, it will end evantually with no plans for more that I've heard of. The finale will no doubt be good, and a tad sad as we will never see the show again. I would be up for more.

If you get Showcase, if you are free Monday nights - take a look at this Canadian show. Perhaps you'll be hooked and want to venture into Paradise Falls.
