Here's another youth-oriented soap opera, this one an empty Australian entry set at a seaside resort outside Brisbane. Call it Baywatch Down Under. The Aussie cast is good-looking but surfboard stiff. There's also a devious American (Matt Lattanzi) in Paradise. Lattanzi comes by his Australian connection naturally: He's married to Olivia Newton-John.

The production is cheesy, the plotting insipid. The only asset this show-does have is its suntanned scenery. Al least these half-dressed nubiles and tesrosteronis have the sense to stay out of the rose patch.
