Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: The Magician (1997)

Toward the end of the 90's, Fox began importing series from Europe, usually through Gaumont. In 1999, the network acquired The Magician, which had made its debut overseas 2 years earlier. Unfortunately for Fox, US audiences didn't quite warm up to this adventure series, and with Fox's own scheduling sleight of hand at work on a regular basis, it did not maintain a firm place on the Saturday schedule, so not all of the 39 episodes produced made it to the US.

Here's the open:

Tried to watch this one morning. Not impressed.

Rating: C.

Never seen nor even heard of this one. Seems like a derivative of past magicians like Mandrake, Dr. Strange or Zatara (elder or younger).

Well, this was from France, so draw your conclusions.
