Mysterious Ways premiered on NBC on July 24, 2000, then moved the PAX on August 22, 2000 and was shown only on PAX beginning with the 9th episode. The show is about Declan Dunn, who has a fascination with mystical phenomena that began several years ago when he was buried under an avalanche and given up for dead. After he miraculously survived, he committed his life to investigating miracles and the absolute proof of their existence. Declan is proof that miracles happen. But how do they occur? How could a five-year-old child survive drowning in a freezing lake? How could a blind mother locate and rescue her unconscious baby from a flaming inferno? How is it the two seemingly identical twins are not even related? Now a professor of Anthropology at a leading New England university, Declan has the training, support staff and the opportunity to study the uncanny, inexplicable phenomena people call "miracles." Each week, Declan and his skeptical assistant, Peggy, embark on an adventure of the impossible: The quest to explain what science cannot.
