So I was thinking about this television show I saw a while back, pretty sure it was a TV Show anyway. In this show it's based in I believe modern times, magic is real but most people don't know that it is. There are real life magicians that are able to use magic but I believe they were rare. In one of the scenes a stage magician was doing the floating card trick and somebody told him try doing it without using tricks, when he started to attempt it the card started to actually float. He then found out that he was one of the real magicians.

Information pertaining to this show :

  • The show should be around early new millenia probably between 2000-2007, there's not other details I can remember. Does anybody have any idea what show this is?

  • I saw this show in USA

  • How long ago is "a while back"? Any recollections of names of actors/characters? Was it in English? – phantom42 May 6 '14 at 13:28
  • It was in English and should be early 2000's... possibly late 90's but I don't think it was. – DoctorWho22 May 6 '14 at 13:36
  • What country did you see the program in? – franglais May 6 '14 at 16:11
  • I saw this in the USA – DoctorWho22 May 6 '14 at 17:54

Could it have been the Dresden Files? The show was a short-lived TV series about a wizard living in modern Chicago, the only wizard to break the rules and go public with his (real) magic.

It was based on a series of books of the same name by Jim Butcher.

  • That's what I was thinking about earlier... I was trying to see if there was a flashback scene or something where he performed the card trick. – DoctorWho22 May 6 '14 at 18:25
  • I don't think he ever did, but his dead dad was a stage magician and there were several flashbacks with him performing on stage. – BBlake May 7 '14 at 14:24
