What I’m Watching: Miracle Workers

Miracle Workers: Season 1, Episode 4 “6 Days” (B+)

I wasn’t really sure how this version of heaven worked, and the brief video clips of Sanjay, Eliza, and Craig provided some insight into that with a look at what they did back when they lived. Little of it was surprising, though Eliza doesn’t really seem like a medieval warrior out of “Game of Thrones.” Sanjay and Eliza were completely unaware the entire episode of exactly how they were treating Craig, so distracted by their newfound camaraderie that they didn’t notice that they were excluding him from everything and making him get them coffee. Their attempts to get Sam and Laura to talk to each other at the party went relatively poorly as they accidentally increased the alcohol level from 2% to 67%, and Craig was able to swoop back in with a surprisingly strong bit of influence to rectify the situation. The fact that Sam’s Nana is about to die is not going to help anyone, though maybe she’ll come straight up to heaven and be able to assist them in setting her grandson up and saving the world. God being bored and trying to get Tim Meadows’ Dave to be his prophet was entertaining, and though he seemed to get out of it after God destroyed his home and he basically let him down easy as if it was a breakup, Craig was the important one who faked a spill so that he could save the life of this do-gooder who didn’t want to be burdened with the absurdity God had in store for him.
