Miracles

Show Summary

God Is Coming... Paul Callan (Skeet Ulrich, Scream) is an investigator of modern miracles. While consistently disappointing hopeful believers by finding simple explanations for "miraculous phenomena", Paul finds his own faith sorely tested. Then something happens. While investigating Tommy Ferguson, a young boy with the power to heal, Paul is given a new lease on life, literally. An accident puts Paul near death, and Tommy uses his power to save him – but Tommy pays for this miracle with his life. Just before this happens, they both see the words "God Is Now Here" written in Paul's blood. When Paul's superiors refuse to acknowledge that a genuine miracle has occurred, Paul resigns his position and tries to understand what has happened to him. He is approached by Alva Keel (Angus Macfadyen), a former Harvard professor and current investigator of the paranormal. Alva confides in Paul that there is a rapidly growing number of "strange occurrences" happening all over the world, which may point to an impending, frightening, and deadly "large event". Believing that Alva may have the answer to his vision in blood, Paul agrees to join forces. Former police officer, Evelyn Santos (Marisa Ramirez) rounds out the team that calls itself Sodalitas Quaerito. They work to uncover the unexplained, and try to find a solution to the coming "darkness"…before it's too late. Miracles premiered as part of ABC's 2002-2003 midseason, after having received tons of praise from critics all across the country. The show is beautifully written, more captivating than FOX's hit paranormal drama, The X-Files. The show immediately gathered a large and very dedicated fan base, which was impressive for a new series, especially on ABC. However, the show was constantly being pre-empted, along with its Monday night sister show Veritas: The Quest, due to the war in Iraq, and ABC finally canceled the show after only showing six episodes out of the thirteen-episode first season. As soon as the fans heard that ABC had canceled the show, dozens of "Save Miracles" sites began popping up on the web. Now, over a year after the show's ending, fans are still fighting strong to get Miracles back, and to prove that miracles really do happen.moreless
