Entertaining.
This short shows how much humor can be derived from the simplest of setups and sets. The opening gag with the pile of boxes and parts got a laugh that grew with the instructions in every language but english.

I understand why you want it, but if it came later, like... read

The magic man in this case is Horatio and he comes to a small town where a group of people are struggling with problems we can all relate to. The first 35 pages are pretty much wholly dedicated to establishing that... read
