The first season of anthology series Miracle Workers will be a Heaven-set workplace comedy based on Simon Rich's book "What in God's Name", starring Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni. Radcliffe will play Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers, and Steve Buscemi will play Craig's boss God, who has pretty much checked out and is ready to move on to his next project. To prevent Earth's destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly unanswerable prayer: help two humans fall in love. 'Miracle Workers' is created by 'Man Seeking Woman' creator Simon Rich and executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer of Michaels' Broadway Video, Simon Rich, Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi. Broadway Video produces the series in association with Turner's Studio T.

Season 1: Funny and likable, yet dark, with perhaps a gnostic slant. Season 2: Huh?
9 April 2019 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

Season 1 Review - 8 stars: This miniseries involves some of heavens drones attempting to save earth from destruction by a god who is not so much wrathful as just bored. Wagering the planet's future on their ability to use divine guidance to bring two shy people together, they find a constant set of obstacles to overcome.

Bringing the couple together often involves killing people, sometimes dozens of people, and I like that darkness in what is generally a silly, rather genial sitcom.

Steve Buscemi is amusing as earth's idiot god, whose story reminds me of a book I read part of which discussed a gnostic sect's belief that Earth was created by a mad god who was not, in fact, the ultimate god. I don't know if the writer had that in mind, though.

The writer, BTW, also did Man Seeking Woman. This isn't as funny and crazy as that series, but it's still lots of fun.

Season 2 Review - 6 stars?:

Turns out Miracle Workers was not, as I had believed, a miniseries, but instead is an anthology series, like American Horror Story. So season 2 is the same actors playing different characters in an entirely different premise ...

which isn't nearly as good.

Season 2 is a medieval tale about peasants and royalty that really isn't worth detailing. The cast is still good but it's not as funny as season 1 and 3 episodes in, which is as far as I got, there's no overarching story to keep you going.

Recommendation: watch season 1, then stop.
