Short-lived ... too bad
This show was actually a decent SF anthology series, like "Outer Limits" in many ways. The production values were the highest that I've seen in a show of this type ... maybe that's why it went away so soon; maybe its budgets exceeded its revenues. Too bad, because the scripts were generally very good, the talent involved ranged from adequate to excellent, and the sets were EXTREMELY well done. In other reviews, I've mentioned instances where the costumes were so awful that they distracted from the movie; here, the sets where "Paradox" was filmed were so good that they were sometimes better at suspending my disbelief and getting me interested in the story than the scripts or the actors were.
I don't know if "Paradox" still exists in syndication anywhere, since it was, I believe, only shown on the Sci-Fi Channel, which no longer carries it; if you happen to find a listing for it, please let me know, because I'd like to catch some of the episodes I missed.
