    "Miracle Workers" is genuine, naturally sweet and never exploitative.

    As a reality show, Miracle Workers is unique: It is neither Machiavellian like Survivor, nor messianic, like Three Wishes, nor grotesque, like Fear Factor. It's as serious as life and death.

    There's restraint in the presentation here, at least compared with other shows in this ilk. The stories are touching and tell us at least a little about pretty amazing medical advances.

    "Miracle Workers" has its share of the tears and phony drama we've come to expect in television-as-savior programs, but at its best it's more documentary than reality show.
  5. The story of these patients is worthwhile, and even touching, but that doesn't make it excellent television.

    The series rings hollow from the moment the opening sequence kicks in, with a tone that screams "infomercial" rather than "docudrama."
