Storyline

A Gothic soap opera that took place on a small Caribbean island, Strange Paradise featured the occult in the story of wealthy but cursed Jean Paul Desmond who resided in his castle Maljardin with his servants Raxl, a voodoo priestess, and Quito, a mute strongman. When the series began, he was mourning the deaths of his wife Erica and their unborn child. His desire to bring his wife back to life resulted in more tragedy. Eventually Maljardin burned down and the action moved to Desmond Hall, the family home somewhere in the United States, and many new characters were introduced. Written by Anonymous

strange paradise
7 April 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This tripe caused me to have nightmares as a young child . It aired in the middle of the day back during it's original run and I watched unsupervised. The show is full of skulls, snakes , evil rabbits, death, fire etc. I've recently seen some of the episodes on Drive -In and have noticed it's poorly written, poorly acted, poorly filmed...everything you'd expect from Canadian television. I guess I've tuned in as a kind of therapy for what terror it caused me as a young child. This show is so bad , however it's really hard to sit through and I wouldn't recommend anyone else to watch it. I mean , not even it an I want to see a train wreck' or an Ed Wood movie sort of way.
