[Season 1 !Season 2 ]
Eliza Hunter ( Geraldine Viswanathan ) is an angel, working in Heaven's Department of Dirt. She asks for a transfer to something more challenging, and ends up in the Department of Answered Prayers. The only other employee there is Craig Bog (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ), who has been stuck there for ten thousand years and has an impressive beard to show for it. Unfortunately it is understaffed because it was intended for a much smaller human population, and instead of angelic genies granting wishes they are basically functions as a lost-and-found.
When Eliza's ambitions exceed her ability, she runs to God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ) and asks him to sort out the world. Instead, God decides to blow up the Earth.
Eliza Hunter ( Geraldine Viswanathan ) has less than two weeks to solve an impossible prayer. She wants to hospitalise a couple of people in the hope they will kiss. Craig Bog (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ) has a more subtle approach.
God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ) has become obsessed with the talk show host Bill Maher, and orders Sanjay to explode Bill's penis.
Laura has a new love interest. Yes, it turns out that - like Ugly Betty - she only dresses in frumpy clothes and is secretly quite attractive.
Sanjay is being followed by a camera crew. His real job involves helping God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ) with his daily ablutions. Luckily, Sanjay used to work in the Miracle department so he is the best person to help the team.
Sanjay has decided to stay with the Miracles team. He and Eliza Hunter ( Geraldine Viswanathan ) both lived impressive lives while back on Earth, while Craig Bog (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ) used to be a caveman whose dead-end job was similar to his current position.
God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ) needs someone to talk to now that Sanjay is gone. Rose suggests he befriend a new prophet. Craig volunteers to help out, since he no longer feels needed by Eliza now she has Sanjay.
Unfortunately, Eliza and Sanjay are too much alike. They learn the hard way that they need Craig to help them.
This starts with a flashback of Rosie ( Lolly Adefope ) as she arrived in Heaven and became Executive Assistant to God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ). Now she actively wants Earth to be destroyed, so she can get out of her dead-end job.
Eliza Hunter ( Geraldine Viswanathan ), Sanjay and Craig Bog (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ) need to extend Grandma's life. They need God to sign the Death Waiver. The good news is that he is illiterate. The bad news is that he has no tolerance for people who try to decieve him.
God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ) is about to destroy the world. While his restuarant, Lazy Susan's, is still in the planning stage he intends to move back with his parents. Of course, his siblings are far more successful than he is.
The team want to force the human couple to kiss by pressuring them with a kiss-camera. The only dissenting voice is Craig Bog (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ), who shares the humans' discomfort. Yes, it turns out he is secretly in love with Eliza Hunter ( Geraldine Viswanathan ).
God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ) has decided to call off the bet and spare the Earth. However, the deadline has already been set. Ironically, because God is such a klutz the Earth might be in more danger than it was when he wanted to destroy it.
The human couple have split up, so the Miracle Worker team need a lot of manpower to get them back together. They rope in the workers from all other departments.
Season One was based on a novel. This Season is an original piece, using the same cast but in completely different roles and setting - like American Horror Story ).
Alexandra Shitshoveller ( Geraldine Viswanathan ) does not want to join the family business and work for her father, Eddie Shitshoveller (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ). Instead she goes to school, to be utterly modern. Of course, this version of pre-medieval history has everyone be completely stupid and superstitious.
Alexandra Shitshoveller ( Geraldine Viswanathan ) and Maggie the Nun ( Lolly Adefope ) go to a pub quiz. The answers are either popular culture or pre-medieval junk science, so Al does not do as well as she expected. All her book-learning counts for nothing.
Al gets hired as a doctor by the local medical centre. The main doctor's cure for the common cold is for the patient to have leeches on his genitalia. This is not based on the balance of the Four Humours, but an effort to distract the mucus fairies. Since Al cannot work it out for herself, the boss confesses that his medical science is all made up. Will Al keep her mouth shut and try to help people, or self-sabotage and publicly denounce the science she claims to love?
Prince Chauncley (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ) is upset because his favourite duck has gone missing. He and Lord Vexler (Karan Soni - ) discover the duck has been found by Mikey Shitshoveller (Jon Bass - Baywatch (2016)). Unfortunately Chauncley seems to have had a personality reset.

Now he has regressed to being willing to kill, and needs Vexler to explain the concept of guilt and remorse.
The episode starts with Lord Vexler (Karan Soni - ), showing his backstory and his rise to power. King Cragmoor (Peter Serafinovic Sean of the Dead ) runs the Kingdom as a meritocracy, and has promoted Vexler to his second-in-command.

Things take a couple of unexpected twists, and Chauncley turns out to have hidden depths.
Alexandra Shitshoveller ( Geraldine Viswanathan ) and her father, Eddie Shitshoveller (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ), go to ShitCon - a conference for people in the shit-shoveling industry. Someone has invented something that looks like a homage to The Hudsucker Proxy ... and will revolutionise shitting. Since Eddie was reluctant to consider using a longer handle on his shovel, he is less than happy at the invention of the latrine. But as the Luddites learned, labour-saving devices do not destroy jobs - they just relocate jobs into new sectors of employment.
Prince Chauncley (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ) wants to make friends with the peasants. Lord Vexler (Karan Soni - ) arranges for the Prince to get an internship with Eddie Shitshoveller (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ).

She should be helping her overworked father, but Mikey is as stupid as the Prince so they both need constant adult supervision.
