EDIT
Hidden Agenda
AIRED:
Mike and Marcellus work together to free an innocent man caught up in the nightmare of being falsely accused of terrorism by an F.B.I. agent who runs amok under the cover of the so-called "Patriot" Act when bombs go off at the Criminal Justice Center; in a misguided attempt to help, Jaime uses Mike's computer to hack into the F.B.I.'s database, which only leads to landing Mike in custody as well; Mike uses his time in custody to figure out that the bombings might be personal rather than institutional attacks, and gives Jaime the opportunity to redeem himself by having him hack into the PPD's database to find the link between the victims, who ends up being an ex-con out to destroy the people responsible for putting him behind bars; Mike and Marcellus track the bomber down just in time to prevent him from harming the next victim on his list, his probation officer, who turns out to be Mike's neighbor Liz.moreless

  • After a stellar season 1

    7.0
    And a good season 2 opener, this starts going downhill here and becomes formulaic and searching for plot lines. The dialogue necessarily suffers and acting gets stiff. Still better than almost anything else on TV (low bar that it is) nonetheless highly recommended if you got nothing else to do. Come to think of it. that could apply to TV in general when you think about it. After all. if you have a real life of your own in a presumably real world, why would you want to watch a pretend one on a screen?moreless

    • Uncharacteristically, this episode contains a plug for "Law & Order", a crime show which airs on NBC -- CBS's most bitter rival in the network ratings battle. It's uncertain if this is a testimony that the stature of "Law & Order" as the longest running drama currently on television has turned it into an institution, or a comment on the nearly ubiquitous presence of the "Law & Order" franchise as reruns on the TNT and USA cable networks, in addition to first-run airings on NBC. (Insert your own "The Dick Wolf Network -- All 'Law & Order', All The Time" joke here.) Of course, it could also be a sly homage to George Dzundza, who starred in the first seasons of both "Hack" (as Grizz Grzelak) and "Law & Order" (as Max Greevey). Five of the fifteen actors who appeared in this episode -- Andre Braugher, Cindy Katz, Michael Gaston, Jerold Goldstein, and Tom McCarthy -- have also made an appearance within the "Law & Order" universe.

    • The scenarios outlined in this episode concerning how a person can be investigated, arrested, detained, and deprived of confidential access to an attorney under the so-called "Patriot" act are, unfortunately, not fiction -- they are a terrifyingly accurate representation of what is happening right now in this country under the cover of this legislation and the guise of "national security".
