Mysterious Ways

Show Summary

Declan Dunn has a fascination with mystical phenomena that began when he was buried under an avalanche and given up for dead. After he miraculously survived, he committed his life to investigating miracles and the absolute proof of their existence. Declan is proof that miracles happen. But how do they occur? How could an eleven-year-old child survive drowning in a freezing lake? How could a blind mother locate and rescue her unconscious baby from a flaming inferno? How is it that two seemingly identical twins are not related at all? Now a professor of Anthropology at a leading Oregon university, Declan has the training, support staff and the opportunity to study the uncanny, inexplicable phenomena people call "miracles". With the help of Peggy, a skeptical psychiatrist, and Miranda, a research student, the three embark on a quest to explain what science cannot. ....................................................................... Mysterious Ways' alternate production title was "One Clear Moment". Mysterious Ways premiered on NBC on July 24, 2000, then moved to PAX on August 22, 2000 and was shown exclusively on PAX beginning with the 2nd episode.

  • I adore this show and it was ahead of its time.

    I adore this show and it was ahead of its time. I think it would have done better now as there are more shows like it and ones dealing with the paranormal now. The timing for this show wasn't right. I love it and never get tired of seeing the episodes more than once. The actors are extremely good and it's nice knowing it's a Canadian show from Lion's Gate films in Vancouver, B.C. Adrian Pasdar is extremely talented as "Declan Dunn," with Rae Dawn Chong and Alisen Down both very talented actresses. I don't really see it compared to X Files as the X Files investigated aliens not ghosts/angels/paranormal. I wish all the actors/actresses great good luck with their future works. I'll look out for them.moreless
  • Good show, it's like a light-hearted X'Files.

    I quite like this show, it has humor, investigating and Adrian Pasdar, who is from another show i fairly like called Heroes. I reckon the show is fairly light-hearted with Decklen (yes i know i can't spell) being it a bit of a goof, but i think that is all right for his personality. I don't have any objections to either Miranda or Peggy, though i do prefer Miranda. As much as i like the show, i am however not pleased how the Sci Fi channel airs it :once a week on Thursday at 7:30 that clashes with other shows also aired at that time. But other than that i like the show, it's different and unique, and i my mind underappreciated.moreless
  • I love this show, I love its ideas, I love its characters, I love this show! It just sort of absorbs me and I can't stop watching it until its suspensful and surprising ending!moreless

    I actually didn't watch this show until I started watching the reruns back in 2006. But, I immediately fell in love with it! It has a way of giving you a little bit of information throughout the whole show, and you start to piece it together your self until the very end where something 'miraculous' happens that just blows you away! I must admit, some of the episodes are a little too much, but most of them just give you a hope that these things do actually happen, and that sometimes its just better to leave them be than to try and explain them, because they aren't meant to be explained.moreless
  • Interesting show with unique pretext. Too bad it got killed by NBC.

    Would like someone to tell me the artist or song name of the song that was on a record player in an episode. The story had to do with an elderly person having died, and every now & then her rocking chair would start to rock and the record player would kick on and play this song: "Oh, there's a moon up in the sky, and .....". Song had somewhat of a country flavor, as the scene was in the Appalachians or other low-income mountain community. Please write to me at if you know the song/episode/artist/etc. Much thanks!!!!moreless
  • I really enjoy this series and record it every day, Declan is a bit slow but nice and considerate, Miranda is brilliant and very supportive, Peggy is so not necessary can we please remove her role. The story line is great.moreless

    I really enjoy this show, I think Declan and Miranda are brilliant but Peggy is the most annoying character in the show. I do not mean her personally but the character she plays is very much superfluous to the program and I don't know why she is required. She is a very depressing character, how can anybody be cheerful or optimistic when you have her spouting all her gloom and doom. At least Declan and Miranda try to investigate these really positive phenomena or miraculous things that happen with a really open mind and investigate all the possible or probable ways that they could have happened but Peggy Fowler is such a miserable person I personally want to strangle her or at the very least remove her from a really good series.moreless
