This show should have been kept on.
27 September 2000 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

The people who choose to cancel this show should have given it more time to catch on. This was show was created by the same people who created Murder, She Wrote, and unlike that show that needed a murder in every story. Blacke's Magic occasionally solved a murder but also dealt with other crimes like inexplicable robberies, unexplained phenomena, and also once in awhile helping people who were either being blackmailed or going up against powerful people. It's too bad that this show was cancelled.
