Did You Know?


In the pilot, the NSA analyst complains about his floppy drive being stuck. By directive, all removable media drives (floppy, CD-ROM, DVD, ZIP) are locked out on intelligence community desktop machines. This protects against viruses and other malicious software being introduced. See more »


Louise Beckett: Can I, uh, offer you a glass of water or a cup of coffee?
Jake Foley: Are you joking? I have millions of these little things running around in my body that might kill me at any moment. I have spent the last couple of days running for my life getting shot at because of these little things that might kill me at any moment. So, do I want a cup of coffee? No, I don't want a cup of coffee. You know what I want? I want my life back.
Louise Beckett: I'm afraid we can't do that, Jake.

The perennially bottom-dwelling and much-maligned UPN is known for its rather eclectic and not-so-great programming. But "Jake 2.0" is a suspenseful, smart show that combines an intriguing sci-fi premise with classic crime drama.

Basically, Jake is this NSA computer lackey who has an accident in one of their research labs, and is infected with these tiny little computer nodes that make him a superhuman type of Robocop. He's then promoted to a full-fledged NSA agent/secret weapon and prevents crime and national disasters with the help of his fellow agents. It received great reviews at the beginning of the year, and despite its small audience, it's been picked up for a full season (being on a small network like UPN does have the benefit of not necessarily being axed within 2 episodes).

Christopher Gorham is perfect as Jake with a mix of endearingly cute dorkiness and a tragic "I'm all alone as Superman" kind of attitude, and the show deftly mixes the exciting, fast pace of a crime drama with human interest stories.

Jake 2.0 is up against some pretty heavy competition on Wednesday nights, but if you get tired of watching the Washington politics of "The West Wing" or the golden Cali shores of "The O.C.," Jake 2.0 is a great alternative.
