Following the strong viewership numbers for the first season, TBS (the show is available on Sky Comedy in the UK) decided to move forward with another season of ‘Miracle Workers’ but instead of being a traditional follow up, they are turning the show into an anthology, with the same cast returning with a new story.
This time, we find the cast in the ‘Dark Ages’ and playing very different kinds of characters.
Geraldine Viswanathan is very much the centre of the story here and she continues to grow in stature as a very impressive comedic actress, and I really hope Hollywood carries on giving her the opportunities she deserves.
Daniel Radcliffe is the comedic stand point this time around, with his comic timing inch perfect and him really being able to let loose. Following his decade long role as Harry Potter, Radcliffe has spent the last decade doing increasingly bizarre and interesting roles, and he is absolutely nailing it.
This time around, we also get to see more of Steve Buscemi as he is very much a main character and you can never go wrong with Buscemi, and he elevates every scene he is in.
Karan Soni, Jon Bass, and Lolly Adefope all return from the first season and while they are good actors, they don’t have too much to do here. Peter Serafinowicz is a guest star here and bounces off Radcliffe really well.
This isn’t the sort of prestige, brilliantly written comedy like ‘Fleabag’ etc, but it’s a very well acted and light heartedly amusing show that I really hope returns for a season 3.
Rating = 3.5/5
