16 September 2005 | by (Annapolis, MD, USA) – See all my reviews

I'm pretty sure they write this for adults, and then just remove anything that isn't appropriate for kids. Just a laugh a minute. My eight-year-old caught me watching it and was amazed to see me laughing at a kid's show. Better than the vast majority of the sitcoms that run during prime time, Jaker's is worth recording this during the day and using it to fill in the dead spots on the television lineup during the evening. Remarkable how good a kid's show can be when a few good writers put their mind to making something durable. Keeping it accessible to young viewers makes this quite a trick, and Jaker's does it.

Wiley the sheep sounds suspiciously like former Gov. William J. LePetomaine of Nevada. Career change?
