Alexander Blacke is a retired magician who comes out of retirement, at the behest of his con-man/gambler father, Leonard, to perform on stage and solve mysteries in this series that mixes the magical antics of "The Magician," the con-game schemes of "The Sting," "Switch," and "Tenspeed and Brown Shoe", and the intricate mysteries of "Columbo" and "Murder She Wrote."Written by
Blacke's Magic was generally enjoyable - the main problem (if you want to call it that) is that it was more of a mystery show, and more of a "con-game"/scam type show, and less of Blacke as a magician. Speaking as a magician myself, I would have liked to seen more of the latter and less of the former. They often seemed to forget they were dealing with a magician as the main character! It's generally enjoyable, and deserved to run longer than it did.
