* ArtisticLicenseSports: There are a few very basic errors when Declan and Peggy go bowling in "Spirit Junction."
** First, Peggy asks why Declan didn't get bowling shoes, and he replies, "[[NoodleIncident That's a long story]]." Bowling shoes are required because street shoes scuff up the lanes, and they were the only ones in the alley so it's not like he could have slipped through the cracks.
** Second, Peggy says it's her turn again after Declan makes one throw. A frame of bowling consists of two attempts to knock down the pins, unless you knock them all down on the first throw (for a strike).
** Third, Declan keeps throwing gutterballs before throwing a strike by complete chance. However, he falls [[EpicFail completely into the lane]] in the process, so the strike wouldn't count, as it's a foul if any part of your body crosses the foul line.

Added DiffLines:

* OneTrueLove: Explored in "Love's Divine." The mystery-of-the-week revolves around a couple realizing that they truly are meant to be together and Miranda wonders if a person can have more than one soul mate. It's said early on that you "won't be able to shake" your soul mate; it's later pointed out that Declan "can't seem to shake" either Peggy or Miranda.

Added DiffLines:

* JustFriends: Declan with Peggy and Miranda. ShipTease abounds, but it's unclear if there are romantic feelings there.

Added DiffLines:

* CreepyMonotone: Miranda.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Declan gets plenty with both Miranda and Peggy. It's implied that they both have feelings for him (and acknowledge that he might have feelings for one of them) but nothing ever comes of it.


''Mysterious Ways'' (2000-2002) was a series seeking to capitalise on the ''X-Files'' inspired craze for TV shows dealing with the paranormal. Lighthearted in tone to the point where it verges on {{Narm}} territory for most modern viewers, even though it combines that with some funny and some more pretentious moments. Originally created for {{PAX}}, an American Christian TV network; possibly its producers were trying to appeal to a broader audience.
