Season 2 of the crazy series "Miracle Workers" is unveiled this Tuesday on Warner TV. What is this medieval trip led by Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi worth?
What's it about?
After a crazy first season in Paradise with angels like no other betting with God to avoid the apocalypse, season 2 of this anthology series takes us back to medieval times, where villagers try to cope despite the difficult living conditions.
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages centers upon a group of medieval villagers trying to stay positive in an age of extreme income inequality, poor healthcare, and widespread ignorance. This 10-episode installment will feature Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni, Jon Bass, and Lolly Adefope returning in new roles and facing new challenges.
Is it worth watching ?
Nice little surprise postponed from the year 2019, the series Miracle Workers is back for a second season. Anthological format requires, if we find the same actors, the characters are different and the time is not at all the same: out of the heights of Paradise, the viewer now finds himself catapulted back to the Middle Ages, alongside villagers struggling to survive and a prince not very clever.
Simon Rich, who had already seduced with the series Man Seeking Woman, strikes again right. With this season 2 called Dark Ages, adapted from his new Revolution, the young American showrunner takes a clever pleasure to play with the codes of an era not really known for its civilized side. There's rhythm, characters you quickly fall in love with, and above all a delicious absurd humor that starts in the credits with the journey full of pitfalls... of a hen!
Particularly fun to follow, this season 2 of Miracle Workers is not only wacky and offbeat. We will salute here the finesse of the writing and this permanent concern for derision: by once again handling the card of the absurd, the series gently hits on humanity and its flaws, which finally haven't changed so much since the Middle Ages! The cocktail is explosive: never nasty, this comedy, squeaky and crazy as it should be, finds the perfect balance by having fun drawing tasty parallels between this distant era and our current mores. Not to mention that Miracle Workers has the quality of devouring itself very quickly without boredom with its ultra-punchy format of ten twenty-minute episodes.
Finally, how can we not mention the amazing gallery of actors who, once again, perform little miracles. Daniel Radcliffe, in the first place, also producer of the show, is perfect in the role of a very spoiled prince, not very fute-fute but oh how endearing, who will gradually move away from a tyrannical father to get closer to the villagers. As for Steve Buscemi, he is hilarious and even touching as a (too) nice father whose job is not the most enviable: after having incarnated God in season 1, he is here... Edward Ramassemerde, in charge of the daily collection of the villagers' excrement. Rarely has a greater gap been seen...
Funny, kidnapped and far from silly, Miracle Workers is a quick bite to eat on Warner TV. And good news for those of you who enjoy the unique twists and turns of Radcliffe, Buscemi and Co. a third season is in the works...
