I used to watch Mysterious Ways with my late aunt in 2002 I think. It was on Friday night. We liked the stories, and the characters were similar to the X-Files'. Then I moved to another country, here they showed only a few episodes of the series. What sticks in my mind is Deaclan Dunn's disobedient dog - a nice addition to the stories without a doubt. My aunt passed away last month and it was eight years ago when I last saw her... and we always talked about some of the TV programmes we used to watch.. I don't think I can bring myself to watch even the intro of Mysterious Ways now.. as I can imagine our old house and the cats, and my aunt sitting next to me..
I used to watch '' Mysterious Ways '' when it was broad casted after midnight on our commercial television. For me it was the perfect material to end the day with. Its heartwarming story lines never get too heavy and it has a positive atmosphere.The show is about a charming college professor ( Adrian Pasdar ) with a huge interest in the paranormal. With his skeptical colleague psychiatrist Peggy ( Rae Dawn Chong ) and promising student Miranda ( Alisen Down )on his side, he tries to uncover the story behind ghostly appearances, Christian miracles, reincarnation and exorcism. In most of the episodes he's confronted with a scientific explanation to everything, but sometimes the outcome suggests more between heaven and earth. Science and faith are equally important in this show.In another review someone mentioned it is a combination between ''The X-files '' and '' Touched by an angel''. That's a pretty accurate way to describe the show. It has the scientific approach to uncover the reality as in ''The X-files'' and the heartwarming interaction between humans as in '' Touched... '' Though I must add that '' Mysterious Ways '' never takes a religious stance in its subjects. It's to the viewer what he wants to believe. No forced Christian morales here.
I remember watching Mysterious ways about 2 years ago on FX in the UK and I loved it - It was clever, original and different. Each story was a change from the last. Here in the UK the series came to an end, and at the beginning of this year I was pleased to find a new series on the Sci-fi channel. I sat down with high expectations and was solely disappointed. Each story was full of coincidences that at the end of day were fully unexplained. If I has watched Mysterious ways from this point I would of put it down as a 4 or a 5 but due to the extremely good 1st series I will give it an 7. I would recommend the series to anyone but start from the first series not the second.
This is a terrific show that is hidden on the Pax network. This means that it is hard to find the show times. But, if you do, it is definitely worth it. The 3 main actors: Pasdar, Chong and Downs are reliable professionals who produce quality shows. I think it showed on NBC one time, but I don't know why it wasn't picked up for more episodes.Pasdar plays an anthropology professor who delves into the unknown. If you liked the X-Files, but don't want the gore, then this show is for you. It's intelligent without insulting the viewer's IQ. And, it has surprise endings that leaves you guessing. I rate it 5 stars.
