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>

Lots of fun
15 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Despite some plots that didn't quite measure up, the show had cool factor, and charm as only the great Bill Bixby could deliver. Additionally, the series is unique in its premise, if not in its mysteries.

Bixby did a great job of performing Mark Wilson's magic. Wilson was a popular professional magician who had his own TV show in the 60s. While I don't see it listed on this site, I distinctly remember what I believe to have been a 30 minute Saturday morning series where he rescued his beautiful assistant from bad guys each show - of course using his magic each week.

If you like magic, or Bill Bixby, or especially both (like me), keep an eye out for this. Since it only ran one season, once in a rare while a cable channel will run a marathon of the entire series.
