Miracle Workers (TBS) S: Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni







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.
First episode is available above on YouTube and On Demand.

Good first episode.
Great choices of the characters....all work well in their roles.

Because of the very fanciful plot, It occured to me if the writing isn't first rate this show will sink fast.

I enjoyed but in the end God still needs to be God and I am not sure they showed any God-like capability in him

Heís cleary not God-Above-All, i.e. thereís none above him. Thereís apparently a pantheon of some sort since Buscemiís God is shown eating lunch with his parents in the trailer. Frankly Iím needlessly anal about such things and hope this is all laid out clearly.

I missed this the first time around so hopefully the renewal means the first season will air not long before the 2nd begins. Of course, if Hulu or Netflix get it I will give it a watch.
