Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

ABC's Miracles had a sizable viewership during its brief 2002-2003 primetime run, but the network's coverage of the Iraq war broke the show's momentum, resulting in cancellation after a mere six episodes. Those half-dozen shows and seven more unaired stories are included in this boxed set, which certainly underscores the series' unfulfilled promise as a kind of spiritually based version of The X-Files. Skeet Ulrich (Scream) stars as Paul Callan, an investigator of miracles for the Catholic Church. Demoralized and confused about his purpose in life, Paul takes a hiatus from his job, but is soon asked to check out claims about a dying young boy, Tommy Ferguson (Jacob Smith), with the power to heal. During his research, Paul has apocalyptic visions and is himself saved from death by Tommy, but the effort kills the latter. Tommy becomes a ghost who intermittently appears throughout the series with cryptic warnings about a coming "darkness." Paul grapples with the meaning of that, as well as the significance of a phenomenon in which his own, spilled blood formed the words, "God Is Now Here."

Enter Alva Keel (Angus Macfadyen, who played Robert the Bruce in Braveheart), a paranormal researcher convinced that scattered miracles recently occurring around the world point to a "large event" coming. Paul warily joins Alva's team, which includes a former cop named Evelyn Santos (Marisa Ramirez). Together they investigate such supernatural oddities as the momentary disappearance of a commercial jet (the passengers subsequently live out their dreams), the possession of a paralysis victim by an entity, the spectral appearance of a dead girl prior to several disasters, and the co-existence of a Civil War-era past and present in a small town. The final episode, "Paul Is Dead," is a particularly spooky tale (with an unexpected twist) in which our hero reaches into the afterlife to help, and be helped, by Tommy after Evelyn's son goes missing. The series' storylines are fairly comparable to the adventures of Mulder and Scully, with a lot of recognizable human pain and anguish dovetailing with the fantastic. Some of the elements of Miracles hadn't quite come together by the 13th program--Alva, Paul and Evelyn never really feel like a cohesive unit--but the potential was certainly there and the writing was unusually strong. If Miracles is finally yet another lost opportunity on network television, at least there remains the strong showing represented in this set. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

The ABC network drama finally comes to DVD! Includes 7 Episodes Never Before Aired in the U.S.!

Paul Callan (Skeet Ulrich) is an investigator of modern miracles whose own faith becomes tested with each new mundane explanation. Then something happens that changes everything. A young boy with the power to heal saves Paul’s life — and pays for it with his own. But before the boy dies, they both see the words "God Is Now Here" written in Paul’s blood, launching Paul on an odyssey of paranormal investigation and spiritual awakening.

Paul finds a kindred spirit in a former Harvard professor turned investigator of the occult (Angus Macfadyen), who opens Paul’s eyes to the growing number of "strange occurrences" that may signal a much more sinister revelation. Teaming up with a former police officer (Marisa Ramirez), these investigators explore the unexplained and try to find a solution to the coming "darkness" before it's too late.

Special Features include:
-Interview & Commentaries
-Deleted Scenes
-5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Cancellation of a Good TV Series. Pfft! August 26, 2005
I'm so fed up with broadcast corporations cancelling shows that have even the slightest hint of cerebral value. FOX tops my list of stations that have an almost A.D.D. style of shoot and cancel -- they did the same thing to WONDERFALLS, another fine series that made you think.

MIRACLES was off to an excellent start: put a young man in the priesthood on a special Catholic task force who's sole purpose is to seek out reported miracles in the world, then report back to a cardinal as to if they were real, fake, or unknown. Paul Callan (Skeet Ulrich, Scream) is this one-man force who has science, religion, and a wobbling faith all tied up inside himself. MIRACLES starts out showing us this dark man visiting a cemetery being moved. When they dig up the coffins, a nun who was buried there falls out of the bottom of her casket. And she's in perfect condition, even though she's been dead for 160 years. Come to find out, the graveyard is sitting next to an apricot orchard, and apricots have a preservative effect. Paul realizes this immediately and kicks open a few other coffins to prove it -- inside those are perfectly preserved corpses, too. Thus we get to see that Paul isn't looking for miracles, but is simply trying to give credence to the unexplained.

Also in the first episode, we get to see Paul nearly killed in a train versus automobile crash. While lying in the crumpled car, he sees his blood on the windshield; and it forms a sentence (this is called Hemography) that reads "God is now here." And then a young boy (whom he'd been investigating because of claims that the boy healed with a touch of his hands, but then became ill after each "healing") comes to him and heals Paul ...then the boy dies.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent show... March 21, 2005
This show was one of the best shows that once again, was never given a chance. I watched most of its run on ABC, which was hard, since it was aired unevenly, and I often didn't know whether it was supposed to be on or not.

I was quite sad to find that it had been cancelled. My mom was sad as well, since I had gotten her hooked on it too :)

Anyway, I loved the show's most thought provoking quote "God is Now here." It's a big deal in the series, as you will find that it is the first time that those words had ever appeared (written in blood), because previously, anytime they had been written, it was "God is nowhere."

Very intense show that made you think. I especially loved the Airplane episode, where everyone gets their wish. It had a touching side story of true unconditional love.

This show, by Angel co-creator David Greenwalt, was a gem that wasn't allowed to see the light. Buy/pre-order this and treat yourself to some very smart ideas regarding religion mythos (even if you are not religious, it's a good character driven show.)

Just a little bit of trivia. In Angel's season 4, there is a shout-out to this show (it had already being cancelled) where they have a chuch with a sign saying "God is Nowhere."

5.0 out of 5 stars Character driven shows rule March 5, 2005
A gem of a series that got canceled way too soon. As pointed out, this show was killed not because of any controversy, but because of the war in Iraq. After three airings, ABC pre-empted the Monday timeslot three out of four weeks. By the time the three remaining episodes saw the light of day, the only ones watching were the dedicated Angel fans who loved David Greenwalt's work. So despite critical praise, the show vanished. Like Wonderfalls, here was another character driven show in an age of only plot driven fodder like the CSI and Law & Order franchise. Like most networks over the last few years, they don't know what to do with shows that put character development over predictable action, sex and violence. So ABC stumbled and thusly had no faith in that viewers would find the show. Had they been smart -and had wanted to keep the show - they should've started reairing the show in April of 2003, but that opened a whole barrel of over issues. Still, they could've saved it for the summer or even held it back until late August. Whatever, I am glad this show is coming to DVD. It deserves to be seen, and while I'm sure only Buffy and Angel fans will buy this, maybe we can convince more people outside those two franchises to buy it. I mean, I showed a friend Wonderfalls, and he was so impressed with -at the time he first though this was an Ally McBeal rip-off - he went out an bought the set. I was happy. This show should've continued. Maybe, if enough people buy this, someone might be convinced to do a big screen version. It is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series May 7, 2005
Miracles-The Complete Series is now available on DVD. There is a chance that you might not remember this show. Only a handful of episodes aired before the show was canceled by ABC. It is hard to believe that such an intriguing show that is so well written met the fate of early cancellation. Skeet Ulrich stars as Paul Callan in this series as a young man whose job is to discover potential miracles. In the pilot episode his faith is seriously waning. At times he even questions whether God exists, of course he didn't utter such a phrase on network television, his exact words were , "I wonder sometimes if we are on our own down here." It is learned that Paul was a foster child and this explains his ties to the church. When he is assigned to visit a family with a young boy, he assumes it will be another false miracle. When he meets this young boy named Tommy, he is intrigued to find that the boy has healing powers. He also realizes that everything Tommy heals someone, he gets sicker himself. Tommy's father feels the boys should continue to heal others despite his own sickness, Tommy's mother wants her son to stop healing and to save his straight for himself. Paul promises to stay by Tommy's side.

Not wanting to be a spoiler, but Paul eventually leaves Tommy's family. The incident with the young boy renews Paul's faith and inspires him to continue on with his pursuit of miracles. When he returns to his job and tells the church his findings, he is shocked when the dispel the miracles that he has just witnessed. He quits his job, hooks up with a mysterious man (Angus Macfayden), and a former police officer (Maria Ramirez), they form their own operation in the pursuit of explorer strange occurrences that have a dark underside.
