Episode Summary

EDIT
A young boy, Todd, starts doing the one thing that he's wanted to do since his father died, further his interest in magic. He becomes an assistant to the great magician Shandu and learns the rules of being a magician: Only let the audience see what you want them to see, never touch another magician's wand unless he hands it to you, and never get caught in your own reflection. But trouble ensues when Todd makes an unwise decision to take Shandu's wand and use it for himself.moreless

  • Todd needs a job to help out his mom and he gets hired as an assistant for Shandu, a washed up magician. When temptation overcomes him, Todd steals Shandu's wand (a serious offense in the realm of magic) and unleashes the nefarious Nazrak.moreless

    This episode is merely average because some portions of it are silly, especially the call "Shandu Can Do!" to make the wand work. That is about as original as shouting "Alakazam!" But aside from that, the plot line is a bit confusing (Nazrak commands Todd to give him the wand, but when Todd finally does, Nazrak scolds him for doing so) and too conveinient (the mom dropping the groceries, the mirror being right behind Todd, etc.) But overall, this was a fair episode and by no means awful or unwatchable.moreless
