Networks have no faith in quality
30 July 2003 | by macfeetiehomeSee all my reviews

Here's another solid concept that fell victim to the whims of the great unwashed of American television audiences. A truly interesting concept, coupled with some solid acting by Ulrich and Macfayden made "Miracles" one of the freshest new shows of the 2002-2003 prime-time television season. Alas, probably because there was no one getting "voted off the Island" on it - it got voted off the Island pretty quickly. I will always rue the fact that the ultimate plot was never allowed to be revealed and the nature of the "God is nowhere" phenomenon was never explained to viewers. Like a succulent hybrid of "X-files" and "Millennium," "Miracles" promised the building intrigue of a huge, unraveled conspiracy theory and the creepy twisted irony of religion gone terribly awry. A real shame it was cancelled, especially while pap like "Big Brother" hangs around longer than the lunch special at Luby's. USA Network was brave enough to pick up "Monk" - I wish they'd have done the same for "Miracles." It'd be awesome for the Sci-Fi Network. Oh well, I expect no less from an obtuse network like ABC - maybe they can flog a couple more cheesy seasons out of that tired old "Practice" - but I doubt it.
