Storyline

Fed up with the magical realm's obsession with large-scale fantasy warfare, Jack the wizard decides to migrate to the sanest place he can think of: Melbourne's western suburbs. After accidentally causing Flinders Street Station to turn ever so slightly into a giant fish monster, his existence (and that of his fellow magical immigrants) is revealed to the Australian public. Fearing a backlash against himself and his kind, Jack swears off using magic in a bid to better assimilate into human life. But of course, fitting in was never going to be easy when people tend to get a bit 'explode-y' whenever you sneeze...

Juggling magic and comedy
20 January 2016 | by mmvdh90See all my reviews

After just seeing the first episode, I can say that this show is brilliant at handling comedy and fantasy.

As a wizard who wants to escape from all the magic, the poor lad is being followed by the stereotypical image of a wizard and a whole lot of magic and real life trouble.

The show gives you what you expect, a new and fresh look on magic and fantasy.

Very well made, especially for a small production company.

10 out of 10 for originality! Also the snarky comments from the main character and his dialogue with his evil wizard neighbor make the show even more fun! And even though this is a fantasy series, you can find a lot of situations that you might be familiar to, such as filling in some papers.

Of course everything becomes even more fun with magic!
