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>

Great U.S. Comedy!!!
19 November 2003 | by bunny_hopgirlSee all my reviews

I think Mr Merlin`s great even if its just to gaze into Zach`s big blue eyes!!! There seems to be a moral to each of the episodes. I loved watching it as a child and now that I have most of the episodes, my children also love watching it! Better than Sabrina! Its nice to have a handsome wizard for the ladies!!!
