Storyline

Merlin the Magician is alive and well and living as an auto mechanic in San Francisco. Upon orders from his voluptuous boss Alexandra, Merlin attempts to train his teenage employee at the garage, Zac, as his heir apparent. Most of the show's comedy comes from Zac's inexperience with his powers and the characters' attempts to keep Merlin's identity a secret. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Very good U.S. Comedy!
26 February 2004 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

I think it certainly makes a change to see a handsome trainee wizard like Zachary Rogers! Makes a nice change from the irritating Sabrina! I was only 12 when I first saw Mr Merlin and could remember his big blue eyes (sigh!). It always had a moral to the story ie. Dont go for the best looking girls as the plainer ones are nicer people. Which is good advice!! Mr Merlin isnt the sort of comedy that has you in fits of laughter, but its still very good. I`m so pleased to see it after all these years and have just watched 18 episodes of it!

Worth a watch!!!
