FtL 127 – Miracle Man

Jesus fights demons (kind of), builds houses, spreads love and doesn’t care if his friends die in modern-day Phoenix. Made on a budget of 1 potato.

In this Christmas themed season finale of Failure to Launch, we examine the pilot for Miracle Man. An independently produced pilot, shopped to a few Christian networks, the series asked the question, quote, “What would it look like if Jesus came today?”
By “came”, they mean lived in Phoenix repairing foreclosed houses, running a faith healing/prayer group out the back of some store that’s totally not a cult, saving children from car accidents with his psychic power* and not bothering to use those powers when blue demons arrange for his Best Buddy™ Lazarus to die in a car accident as a way to crush JC’s will.

Luckily for JC, he doesn’t really care if his friends die, so… all good.

Still not clear if he was curing or imparting the cancer.


Jesus and the resurrection of Lazarus with shit lens flares.


The off-screen demon Ferris might have mentioned once or twice.
