Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Soap opera fans might enjoy following the good-looking gang's hook-ups and break-ups, but most viewers will likely find the dialogue inane and the self-involved characters hard to care about. As in MTV's sem-reality show Laguna Beach, the Paradise characters are real people but the action and dialogue sometimes feel staged.

Scenes filled with kissing and discussions about sex -- as well as regular social drinking -- make Paradise City pretty iffy for younger viewers. Teens might be attracted to by the show's eye-candy factor, but the focus on rather dull grown-up dynamics will probably turn them off.

Did we miss something on diversity?
