Trivia

Trademark: During each show, the villain would get four playing cards distributed anonymously. The cards were the threes of the various suits, with the spade three always coming last. In the pilot and the opening credits of each show, Jack Cole plays solitaire and deals himself four threes in succession, to match his three years of imprisonment. The cards are marked on the back with a Jack Cole quotation, ending with "The spade is the sword of justice. Its rapier marks the end." See more »

Quotes

Jack Cole: The spade is the sword of justice. Its rapier marks the end.
[Jack Cole's catch phrase, spoken in voiceover as the villain reads the back of the three of spades just before being arrested]

Really bad television
13 March 2003 | by sgspiresSee all my reviews

This isn't as bad as SuperTrain -- which came out about the same time -- but it has an awful concept. Jack Cole, framed for a crime he didn't do (who hasn't been???), picks up a lot of criminal and not-so criminal skills in the slam. Lock picking and forgery are a stretch but I suppose you could do this in prison. But every week the opening credits would have a guy say "You never know when precision gymnastics might come in handy." And so, Jack Cole practices gymnastics in the joint. What a crock. It was the 70s and this is 70s television in all its glory.
