    Miracles Miracles [Season 1, Episode 0] Pilot

    This is an X-Files rip-off by David Greenwalt Productions.

    Paul Ferguson (Skeet Ulrich - Chill Factor, Scream ) has visions. He is a suspect, and potentially the next victim in a serial killer case. Is the killer working for God or for Satan?

    Miracles Miracles [Season 1, Episode 1] The Ferguson Syndrome
    Shown 27 Jan 03 Paul [Skeet Ulrich - Chill Factor ] investigates supposedly miraculous events on behalf of the Catholic Church. He quits, but when Hector Elizondo [ Century City ] sends him to investigate a healer boy named Tommy Ferguson, it seems Paul may be more involved with miracles than he wants.

    The setup for the rest of the series is when he joins a scientific investigator [Angus McFadyen - Braveheart ] to do the same job ...

    This is the first ep [after the unaired pilot?]. It has a decent budget, which allows for a very impressive car-crash sequence.

    Shown 3 Feb 03
    Shown 30th May 2006 [Tuesday]

    A passenger plane flying into Logan Airport, USA, disappears in a flash of light. When it returns, everyone exhibits signs of a different phenomenon. Spontaneous human combustion, speaking in tongues, miraculous healing ...

    By strange coincidence, our heroes' office is nearby. Also, the NSA investigator in charge is a frienemy of MacFadyen's.

    Shown 10 Feb 03

    Miracles Miracles [Season 1, Episode 4] Little Miss Lost
    Shown 3 Mar 03
    Shown 1st June 2006 [Thursday]

    Skeet sees a wee girl at places, just before terrible accidents happen there. Either she's warning him, or she's causing the accidents.

    The team must discover the girl's parents, to lay her ghost to rest. In the meantime, there are some quite exciting scenes as they try to prevent disasters!

    Skeet/Paul's investigation to find his own father almost comes to a head.

    Miracles Miracles [Season 1, Episode 5] The Bone Scatterer
    Shown 10 Mar 03

    Miracles Miracles [Season 1, Episode 6] Hand of God
    Shown 31 Mar 03
    Shown 3rd June 2006 [Saturday]

    Skeet isn't the only one who saw writing in his own blood. Half a dozen others did - and someone is murdering them!

    Miracles Miracles [Season 1, Episode 7] You Are My Sunshine

    Shown 21 Nov 03
    Shown 6th June 2006 [Tuesday]

    The team are called in to investigate an apparent haunting. It seems that a Confederate soldier's ghost is hanging out in a convenience store!

    Skeet explains the ghostliness to a couple of pre-teen kids. They question the nature of the fabric of reality, so their mother offers them the scientific facts. These scenes alone make the ep worth watching!

    Technically it's not a ghost, just a porous spot in the fabric of time. Thus, this ep has a scientific explanation [of sorts] instead of a religious one!

    Miracles Miracles [Season 1, Episode 9] Mother's Daughter
    Shown 28 Nov 03
    Shown 27th April 2006 [Wednesday]

    An Amish girl has stigmata, and dies in an accident.

    Both girls are reincarnated in the same body. Or something.

    WTF is going on? Which girl is which? Who cares? How did this show get commissioned? It lacks the Whodunnit factor of Millennium , but is every bit as bleak and depressing.

    Shown 5 Dec 03
    Shown 28th April 2006 [Thursday]
