Nicolas Surovy is the only reason to watch

A lot of people enjoyed this show, as "Paradise" and then as "Guns of Paradise". Honestly, it didn't truly succeed in either incarnation because it was simply boring as hell. Lee Horsley, although attractive and able in the saddle, is stiff and uninteresting as the uncle taking care of nieces and nephews with nary an acting chop among them. Except for the eldest girl-child the kids all seem to have been plucked from speech therapy sessions, reluctantly. There is ZERO chemistry between Horsley and Sigrid Thornton, who is always looking wistfully out of windows while mumbling her lines and wishing she were back in Australia where she is, for some unknown reason, thought of as a good actress. Everyone on the show is low-key--hence, boring--with the only spark of excitement coming from Nick Surovy as sometimes brutal Marshall Brakenhouse and his odd relationship with Horsley's Ethan Cord character. The writers certainly could have done more with that, but nobody seemed to care whether the viewers were ENTERTAINED! The pace of the episodes are slowwwwwwwww and the editing steps on whatever comedic or dramatic timing exists in a scene. The only other character of mild interest is Dehl Berti who plays John Taylor, an Indian. Berti is actually a native American, authentic and wise in his role---unfortunately he has many scenes with the amateurish and boring children. If for some reason you are hard up for a western, this will suffice, especially if you are trying to get some sleep.
