If you are on a social network or a fan of ‘Harry Potter’ (or both), it is possible that a few weeks ago you saw a picture of Daniel Radcliffe, very injured and wearing only a pair of white. gayumbos The reason for this snapshot is not a catch on the beach or in the gym locker room, but it is taken from the series that the actor stars and produces with Steve Buscemi, ‘Miracle Workers’, a rogue (and irregular) proposal where he had a great time and which is now in its fourth season, although it is not a title that is widely known to the public.
Broadcasting in Spain via Warner TV (and, therefore, you can see it on demand on Movistar Plus+, Vodafone TV, Orange TV and other operators where the channel is), ‘Miracle Workers’ tells a completely different story in each of its seasons, united only by the casual tone and the presence of its lead trio., the aforementioned Radcliffe and Buscemi alongside Australian actress of Indian descent Geraldine Viswanathan. It can’t even be said that from the second season onwards the title has meaning, referring to the initial premise, where Buscemi plays a God who feeds on Mankind who plans to end it out of boredom and his companions consist of a a couple of angels in charge of performing miracles that must convince him to change his mind and save us all.
That debut season was based on the novel ‘What in God’s Name’ by Simon Rich, who personally supervised its adaptation for television for the North American channel TBS. When that story ended, Rich continued under this brand adapting other stories of his in other settings – the second season was subtitled ‘The Dedian Age’, while the third, ‘The Oregon Trail’, brings us to the American West – in which the conventions of classic audiovisual genres are laughed at to turn them around, satirize or simply be silly. ‘Miracle Workers’ works along that fine comic line: we can’t say that its humor is very intelligent, although sometimes it has jokes that are on their feet. etc., clever ideas that don’t end up landing in the best way.
What is clear is that for Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi (who share the credit of executive producers, among others, the famous Lorne Michaels of ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ’30 Rock’) they found in ‘ Miracle Workers’ a kind of personal playground where they can have fun like dwarves: This is an opportunity to explore crazy stories and borderline characters who will lose the path of honor and show their most shameless side. Naked or not. For example, if this year it was a picture of him in his underwear talking to people, in season 3 it was a clip of Radcliff dancing. hip in a western slum with a nondescript appearance.
The most recent of the seasons, called ‘The End of Time’, moved to a universe clearly inspired by ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and other dystopian fiction post-apocalyptic and punk. But this one thing is more than home: Geraldine Viswanathan plays a fierce warrior who, after meeting Daniel Radcliffe’s character and getting married, starts a new life in a settlement equivalent to a typical American residential neighborhood. They become gentrified, along with their human dog, and are taken over by a junkyard boss (played by Buscemi) who has a hologram as a partner. As happened in other seasons, here the ‘Miracle Workers’ operates on an uneven script where some jokes are funny and others border on embarrassing others and there is no strong incentive that gives structure to the season .
However, the two lead producers are very talented and They enjoy this great joke between partners so much that the sympathy is contagious. It might not be anyone’s favorite series, but it will make more than a smile. Otherwise, there’s always the abs of the former Harry Potter.
