Tuesday's Forgotten TV: Blacke's Magic
Wasting no time for this week's Tuesday's Forgotten, I present the short lived 1986 TV series Blacke's Magic.
In this series, Hal Linden plays Alexander Blacke, a retired stage magician who helps the police solve crimes along with his con man father, played by the late Harry Morgan. That's pretty much all you need to know.
Talk about forgotten. I barely remember this series at all, but was made aware of it by an article I read about a previous attempt at a magician as detective series, The Magician, which starred Bill Bixby. You can read that article here at the wonderful site TV Party.
Here is the first episode of the series, "Breathing Room." Enjoy!
