Miracle Workers: Season 1 Videos

Tv Season Info

The first season of anthology series Miracle Workers is a Heaven-set workplace comedy based on Simon Rich's book What in God's Name. The show stars Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan and Karan Soni. Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers, and Steve Buscemi plays 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 impossible prayer: help two humans fall in love. Karan Soni plays Sanjay, God's right-hand man.

Full of grace it's not.

The laughs aren't plentiful enough, the ideas aren't exciting enough, and the story isn't gripping enough.

A show that you keep waiting to click into gear, to get funnier, smarter, more enjoyable.

After sitting through almost four hours of "Miracle Workers"...you may come to the same conclusion I did. This joke runs long and eventually dry, too. One season is more than enough.

"Miracle Workers" is imitating better titles, even as it features some great talent in its leads. It's worth watching for Buscemi's turn as a bored deity, but as of now its vision of Heaven offers few reasons for conversion.

Miracle Workers takes the plunge - and mostly falls flat. The jokes are generic, and they feel incomplete, as if we've just heard the first draft and no one tried to improvise or push it further.

Simon Rich, whose background as a writer includes work on Pixar's INSIDE OUT as well as THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS, is able to take this insane concept and makes it work by investing everything into the characters.

This seven-episode limited series is both cynical (about God as CEO) and full of hope (about the potential for humanity). It's also consistently clever and funny.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

A television series that grapples, albeit lightly, with subjects that have confounded religious scholars and philosophers for centuries ideally should be smart and a few steps ahead of its audience.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Miracle Workers is just plain entertaining. The ensemble scenes have a natural, easy comedic timing that can usually be traced to, of all people, Daniel Radcliffe.
