Jake 2.0

Show Summary

That's me, Jake Foley. I'm in tech support. My security clearance is low... very low. Then one day it all changed. I can do things I never dreamed of. I've been ugpraded, I have these powers. Life just got real interesting,...

Jake Foley was an ordinary guy until a freak accident turned him into the world's first computer-enhanced man. Millions of microscopic computers interface with his biochemistry and make him stronger and faster, able to see and hear further then normal man. They give him the power to control technology with his brain. Jake Foley – America's secret weapon. He takes on missions no ordinary agent can perform. He is the ultimate human upgrade.

When Jake's newfound abilities are discovered, the National Security Agency places him at the center of a new Special Ops team. But once he is thrust into his new role as a secret agent, Jake is forced to juggle his two lives as a superhero and a regular, twenty-something guy looking to enjoy life and find love.moreless

  • One of the best shows i've ever seen!

    9.0
    Jake 2.0 was a fab series and I just wish the network had given it more of a chance.



    It was an entertaining show with great characterisation, a good mix of light-heartedness and seriousness and some great storylines. It was also nice for once to see a "normal guy" as the lead, as the hero - a guy with insecurities and issues like the rest of us! Chris Gorham was fantastic as Jake, bringing just the right touch of appealing naivete to the role.



    I admit there were moments in the first few episodes where Jake's propensity to stumble into disaster was a bit annoying but this was all part of the character's growth - and boy has he (and the show!) grown over the course of the series.



    This show suffered from appalling scheduling (up against Angel - a 5 year established show with a huge fan base) and not enough promotion/advertising and sadly was cancelled just as it was really getting into it's stride and showing us what it could do. Recent episodes have allowed Jake's character to develop in leaps and bounds and touched on a lot of the more serious issues to do with Jake's new abilities - and the related intrigue within the NSA. The show was developing it's own mythology and more of a continuing thread of storyline within the stand-alone episodes and was heading into a slightly darker, very interesting direction.



    The first of the last four episodes made (not yet seen in the US) aired in the UK this week and was worthy of The X-Files in it's prime. The plot was absorbing and clever and is leading into all sorts of interesting places - this episode also was the series' first 2-parter, leaving things open for an hell of a conclusion next week! Jake's character has matured seriously in recent weeks and, although the friendly geek is still there, as an agent Jake has developed into a strong, confident man, not afraid to use fists or a gun - and pretty much someone you do NOT want to mess with if he's mad at you! Chris Gorham's portrayal of Jake continues to be excellent.



    There are 3 more episodes to be aired and then that's it for this excellent series. It had a lot of potential and a growing fan base but sadly didn't get the support it needed from the network. Can anyone say "Firefly"?



    Word of where the series creator was planning to take the show leaves me in no doubt that this series had the potential to be a serious contender in genre TV. A real shame it never got the chance...moreless

    I can not believe that they ended this series. I thought that they would keep it airing for another season but I guess they didn't get much ratings. But in not a complete tragic because Sci-Fi Channel airs the episodes sometime. To anyone who into action, comedy and science fiction movies then I suggest you try looking at Jake 2.0. I sad that there won't be anymore episodes from this series but I'm glad I can still see the old episodes. And maybe they make a series off of this one if we are lucky. To Jake 2.0, you were great and I am glad I watched you.moreless
  • It`s very disappointing the show didn`t got another try.

    9.0
    I just finished this season and i like it. It`s about a kid who always dreamed to become an agent but when he gets there he doesn`t like what he`s becoming especially the nano tech in him. Had alot of potential this program i didn`t know about recently 2 days ago and i saw all 16 episodes, So you know that i enjoyed watching it. I know it`s too late their wont be another seasons of the show but it was a fantastic till the last episode. If it were for me i would gave it, by now 5 more seasons. It worth watching and would have been 1 of the greatest show on tv...moreless
  • Too bad it was cancelled.

    9.1
    Yes, this review is probably a little too late being that the show was cancelled in 2003 and it is now 2008. But, I just caught a couple of episodes on the Sci-fi channel today for the first time. It's a shame the show was cancelled, it looked like it had great potential. I thought it was pretty good and I liked the characters. Had I known about it back in '03, I surely would have watched it then. I'm also disappointed to find out that there was only one season. So, much for watching a bunch more episodes in reruns.moreless
  • Bottom line ... very good show and quite a good cast. Definetley ahead of it's time.

    The show was ahead of it time with every single episode. It had a great cast, it was full with relatively unknown actors at that time all very promising though. The premise is great, nerdy geeky tech suport guy who always dreamed of mooving up gets his chance when a freak accident involving nanotechnology gives him enhanced abilities.

    It's funny how this wasn't picked up as a regular series and "Chuck" was since it's basicly the same thing.

    The characters were well writen, there was place for expansion, it had, action, sci fi, and comic relief all in one great show.

    You can see the main character and the actor that played it, actually evolving from episode to episode.

    And the support it gets from the other characters is great.

    It would have been interesting to see how they develop and manage a possible relationship between Jake and Diane, as the connection was there from the first episode, while they've started relatively late to explore it, it would have been grounds for serious humour and also drama in it, at least two or three seasons worth of it. Hell if they add in a bit of Jake's ex girlfriends, some of that "Arms and the girl" scent with new atractive women that hit on him, some Sarah episodic appearances, and stir all that with a bit of gealousy and uncertainty from Diane there would be plenty to write solely on that for a few season, add to that the terrorism and all the other subjects you got there a recipe for a succesfull and pretty long show.

    A show that wouldn't be boring even at the tenth season, off course if it's thought right.

    Too sum up, this show definetly needs to be revamped and if possible in exactly the same formula, or at least for the 4 main actors in it.moreless
