I agree that this show wasn't given enough time to catch on. I never found out about it until years later so it must have come and gone very fast. I really wish it had been around longer because I found it to be a very interesting show.
Hal Linden was great playing the lead role of the debonair Alexander Blacke and I don't think anyone else could have played that role the way he did. The same goes for Harry Morgan in the role of Leonard Blacke, Alex's father.
I loved these episodes and how each one Blacke used his powers of observation and experience from years of being a magician/illusionist to solve a crime. I also thought the magic he performed in the episodes was fun to watch.
Like Murder, She Wrote you also got to see a lot of great guest stars, people who you might not have seen for a while since they weren't on TV each week anymore. A lot of faces from the past as well as people who were just starting out.
This was definitely a fun show that cut short before its time.
