| Season 1: Funny and likable, yet dark, with perhaps a gnostic slant. Season 2: Huh?
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.
