1 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One can close one's eyes and ask for a miracle -- that this icky episode had never been made -- but retroactive miracles don't seem possible.

I don't like stories with predictable endings, and "The Miracle Man" seemed to be headed in an unpredictable direction -- a morally ambiguous drummer, and a major tragedy for all concerned -- but when the eldest daughter asks Mr Sullivan for a miracle that will let her reach the ripe old age of 10, and Sullivan is obviously touched, the outcome is a foregone conclusion.

"Gunsmoke" does tragedy well, and "The Miracle Man" could have been a thoroughly unhappy story. Unfortunately, the producers didn't want to turn such a wholesome tale into something depressing, and chickened out.
