'Miracles' is a little gem of a series. It only ran for 13 episodes before cancellation in the US, but it looks amazing, the quality of the episodes is very high, and the final episode ties up enough ends that, although you'll be left wanting more, it isn't exactly a cliffhanger, and it isn't going to keep you wondering unbearably what-happened-next forever. The pilot episode on its own is a haunting piece of filming worth the price of the box set.
The series treads similar ground to 'Sea of Souls' in the UK, focusing on the investigations into the paranormal of Paul Callan, disenchanted former miracles-investigator for the Church, parapsychology academic Alva Keel, and ex-cop Evelyn Santos. The three leads are great, compelling characters, and although it would have been nice to know more about Evelyn, presumably that would have happened if the show had been allowed chance to grow a bit more.
Unlike 'Sea of Souls', the paranormal events don't feel overly-melodramatic, they feel researched and portrayed with realism. The commentaries provide interesting anecdotes about sources used for the stories, and it's clear that real research went into this series. All the extra features are very good, and I don't think you could ask for a better presentation of this series on DVD. It's a pity you still need region 1 to view it as I'm sure this series would have a lot of appeal outside the US and it really ought to be more widely available.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Diamond 5 Oct 2012
By Mr. B. Trotter VINE VOICE
Let's Start with the bad news, G.W.Bush caused this series to be cancelled, that's a fact. This series coincided with the invasion of Iraq,which was to take out those non existent chemical weapon factories, but I'll shut up, no politics.
It coincided with the aforementioned event, 3 out of 4 weeks it was bumped for news reports, by the time the war was over it had lost most of its viewers, and ABC cancelled it.
I won't go into the storylines or plots! Plenty of reviews out their that can do that job batter than me.
I'm just going to give an opinion why you should buy, steal or borrow this DVD.
The individual episodes are in the most extremely clever. There is a constant story arc, which of course never gets resolved. The main characters are all wonderfully understated, but all of the actors hit it out of the ground.
Hector Elizondo, Skeet Ulrich and Angus Macfadyen, are all perfect in their roles. Each episode is fresh and smart, and all the supporting actors are exceptional.
All in all, a must see TV series. Unfortunately it went the way of Firefly and Terriers, great TV series that studio execs decided to can, and let's be fair, if most of your audience are uneducated and stupid, it's easy when you have the likes of the XFactor and such like to fall back on. TV is a business and I understand their decision, but they missed a trick with this one, it could have a similar. Following as True Blood, Fringe or Supernatural.
Anyway if you want 13 episodes of pure entertainment get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Cancellation of a Good TV Series. Pfft! 26 Aug 2005
By B. Merritt - Published on Amazon.com
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. When Paul reports back to the cardinal about what he'd experienced, the cardinal dismisses his claim, so Paul up and quits the church. But in the wings is waiting a man who runs a special paranormal research agency. Alva Keel (Angus Macfadyen, Braveheart) becomes Paul's new boss, and the discoveries they make are terribly disturbing.

Apparently, most people who've seen the message that Paul saw in his blood didn't see "God is now here." They saw "God is nowhere." And so begins their spiritual, paranormal, and dark journey.

The thing that bugged me most about this series was its title, MIRACLES. I didn't see most of what they found to be miraculous as much as disturbingly dangerous. But even so, the series held together pretty well regardless of its name.

Paul has to try and overcome the fact that he was saved by a child who gave up his life for Paul's. This horrible event haunts Paul throughout the series as we repeatedly witness his visions and dreams of the boy, eyes bleeding, face gaunt, hair falling out.

It is worth noting, too, that this series has very little in the way of spiritual upliftingness. There are touches of it, but mostly the episodes hit on something dark coming, something terrible. The apocalypse maybe?

The viewer is never given any insight into what exactly is in store for Paul and his paranormal investigations. And, unfortunately, we'll never really know for sure since the show was cancelled (can I bare my b&tt so that FOX executives can kiss it!)

But I do have a theory of my own. Paul was an orphan and never knew his mother or father, and this plays a vital part of Paul's character and how we view him. He's a loner, but a good person at heart. He's just suffering over what to do with his questioning faith in ...everything. But everyone in the series wants to be near him and trusts him. He also goes through Hell on Earth; during his investigations he almost always gets the cr@p beat out of him, only to recover and move on to the next case. I think he was being set up for something large and important; perhaps to become an angel or a type of disciple for the next coming.

But, again, who knows. FOX's idiocy has ruined another great character show. Morons!

I didn't give the show 5 stars because some of the episodes were pretty pedestrian in nature and easy to figure out, but the acting, excellent filming, and haunting music all made this a very watchable series.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent show... 21 Mar 2005
By AngelosOne - Published on Amazon.com
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 6 Mar 2005
By D. O'Neill - Published on Amazon.com
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 7 May 2005
By Dorrie Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
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.

This is a very interesting show and if you like shows like X-Files and CSI, you will love this show and be hooked. You will want to watch the entire series. By the way, the DVD box set includes 7 episodes that never aired in the United States. This isn't a real religious show as some might think it is based on the title. It is more of a supernatural thriller type of show. Watch one episode and you will be hooked. Thanks to Shout Factory you can enjoy this show on DVD. The DVD set also includes interviews, commentaries, series promo and deleted scenes.
