Just what does Amazo have up his sleeve?
10 October 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Young Tim Swanson (Dov Tiefenbach) loves magic. The only he likes more than magic is, in fact, the magician he looks up to, Amazo (Mike Carbone). When he gets the chance to sneak along and see Amazo onstage, Tim takes it. He ends up having to take his younger sister (Ginny, played by Tabitha Lupien), which isn't great, but he also ends up being used for one of the big tricks, which IS great. Then he is stuck below the stage while the rest of the show continues, which isn't great. And he finds out that Amazo may be a bit of a douchebag, which also isn't great. But then he has the chance to lift Amazo's bag of tricks and keep them all for himself. Which is GREAT again. But just how does Amazo perform his fantastic tricks? What's his secret?

Directed by John Bell and written by Charles Lazer (based on the book by R. L. Stine), this is a fun episode of the show that mixes magic with something supernatural, of course. That's enough to appeal to the core demographic right there, but the show also moves through the plot with a mix of mischief and wonderment from start to finish. Making it a very enjoyable tale.

Tiefenbach is okay in the main role, Carbone is enjoyably smooth as Amazo and Lupien does the standard little sister routine, although she doesn't really make her brother's life that bad, really. There's also good support from a rabbit, a number of magic props and David Ferry, playing another magician named El Sydney.

A solid 7/10
