Okay Show - What about the Magic?
24 November 1999 | by GislefSee all my reviews

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.
