Herald Sun - Switched On - - Saturday - THE PAR­ADISE, ABC1, 7.30pm

I HOPE you haven’t read the Emile Zola book this is meant to be based on, and carry on when you find it’s not the same. This is still fab­u­lous — gor­geous and fluffy-se­ri­ous and about shop­ping, for cry­ing out loud, there’s no way you’re not go­ing to love it. Dewy young Denise wants to work at her de­pressed un­cle Mr Lovett’s drap­ery but the scary de­part­ment store across the street is tak­ing all the busi­ness.
