Miracle Workers: Season 1 Reviews

November 19, 2019
The concept never comes together even with a talented cast and the resulting show is an unfunny comedy that's as dour as it is underwhelming.

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.

Full of grace it's not.

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.
February 12, 2019
Piles on inconsistent, contradictory details about the inner workings of Heaven Inc., and pivots to an unconvincing ode to human nature in the final episodes.
February 12, 2019
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.

Still, Miracle Workers is often unforgivably small-minded - which could be its point.

Miracle Workers is not bad, it's just trying to be either too cute or too clever and doesn't have much urgency.
