Storyline

Anthony Blake is a very compassionate and wealthy magician, who uses his talents as an illusionist and escape artist to help people in trouble. Max Pomeroy, a friend who is a syndicated columnist, describes him as "One of the few individuals in this age of numbness, who can still regard the suffering of a fellow human being as his own." He is motivated to help because he had been falsely imprisoned in South America for espionage. Written by C. Rohnacher <ARSU14A@prodigy.com>

Some notes about the DVD
22 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This series was released on DVD in 2017. The episodes seem to be complete, except for episode 12, "The Illusion of the Curious Counterfeit" part 2, which is missing the recap of part 1 (episode 11). That recap - which can be seen on YouTube - runs only 02:45, yet the episode runs 05:35 shorter than the rest. I've compared the DVD to an old tape from the SciFi Channel. Besides the recap, SciFi had nothing that isn't in the DVD version. It's possible that the episode actually ran 3 minutes short when it originally aired.

I've also compared the pilot movie to the SciFi channel version. At 20:05, SciFi goes to a commercial. A :05 second shot of the Spirit airplane flying off has been trimmed; on the DVD, it cuts directly to a similar (not identical) shot which occurs after the commercial. The missing shot is insignificant, and the edit actually improves the flow, by eliminating the commercial fade-out / fade-in.

Also in the pilot, at 34:15, Max asks Mrs. Coogan (Kim Hunter) if she's ever read "The Count of Monte Cristo". I distinctly remember from an older tape I used to have that she responds "No" then pauses a moment before saying "I've seen the movie." On both the DVD and the SciFi channel versions, the "No" and pause is cut. This makes me wonder if anything else has been cut from the DVD (the SciFi version has nothing else that's missing from the DVD).

One more note ... episode 14, The Illusion of The Queen's Gambit, has the second style of credits, but still lists Keene Curtis as co-star. It seems to be the first Magic Castle episode, with Joseph Sirola listed as a guest star. This presumably belongs before episode 11.
