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>

A fun show to watch
21 July 2011 | by morning_coffee_cubSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series growing up. it's charming story plots are wonderful and the majority of the cast are VERY lovable (unlike what's out today). Like everyone else, I really HATED that it lasted only one season!! what's up with that?! it had Clark Brandon (the only guy I've seen to have buck teeth, button nose, and BIG blue-eyes, and still looked damn awesome). it had the momentum to run at least for another few seasons. I had seen Clark Brandon in various TV roles (Jo's BF from Facts of Life, for one), but really liked that this show revolved around him. I've seen his later performances (ex: Fast food--though i really didn't care for it--Zack's personality really fit Clark for me... but then again, so did Eddie's). I hated that he faded into obscurity. he was just as talented as others in that time period, and it's a shame that studios didn't make more use of him. as a kid, i wanted to be like him.. except my eyes are hazel.
