  • Jake teams up with a former spy.

    9.0
    "A very special episode" a classification based on the guest star, Lee Majors, the star of the Six Million Dollar Man.

    In a way, Jake 2.0 is an updated version of the Six Million Dollar Man. A man, improved by technology (bionics or nanite technology), becomes a secret agent.



    The excellent creative team behind Jake 2.0 naturally included a few references to this precursor series, the most explicit one at the end of the episode, complete with 'bionic' sound effect. Kudos!



    What I also liked about this episode was the exchange between Lou and Jake almost at the end. Jake has developed a lot since the first episode and it shows in his reply to Lou's comments.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • It happens a lot in shows that feel obliged to make references to other shows, but in "The Good, The Bad, and the Geeky" Jake mentions Steve Austin. Who was played by Lee Majors in the TV series The Six Million Dollar Man. But Majors appears here as a different character, Richard Foxx. So why doesn't anyone say, "Hey, you look just like that guy who played Steve Austin on TV?"

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Lou: We've got a problem Jake, and something's gonna have to give. There are people upstairs who don't like the way you do things, and they would love nothing more than to shut us down. Now, I do everything in my power to protect you, but there is a limit to what I can do. So, at the very least, when I give you an order, you follow it. You don't question it, just like all the other agents who work for me. Are we clear?
      Jake: Lou, I respect you and believe me, I appreciate everything you have done for me, but I am not like all your other agents. I wake up every morning with millions of nanites inside of me. Now, if you want me to follow every rule and regulation to the letter, then that's what I'll try to do, but if you ask me to do that, then one day something is going to give, it'll be me!

    • Dick: Go with your gut. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that you get the job done right.

    • Lou: Was there something else?
      Dick: You got real purty eyes.

    • Richard: Give me a break – I could run faster than that heap.
      Jake: (suspiciously) Really?
      Richard: I need another Fresca.

    • Jake: Wait a minute – I've been spending the last 36 hours with... what? A double, decoy, clone?
      Kyle: There's no such thing, Jake. You've been watching too many spy movies.

    • Jake: There was an accident...
      Richard: Yeah, there's always an accident.

    • Richard: Wouldn't think that skinny kid could fight so good.

    • Jake: Are you just going to stay here and gamble?
      Richard: No, I'm going to stay here and gamble and drink.

    • Richard: Who was the pinhead who lost that one?
      Jake: Uhhh, I would be that pinhead.

    • Richard: What did I tell you?
      Jake: If you get a hundred thousand dollar car for a mission, it needs to be fast and comfortable.
      Richard: That's my boy.

    • Diane: And why is your shirt still on? And if you say "why is yours" --
      Richard: You'll stick a scalpel in me?
      Diane: Yeah, something like that.

    • Diane: I'll be right back. Just take your shirt off.
      Richard: Okay, but I expect you to do likewise.

    • Lou: Are you saying she's planning another attack on a US nuclear facility?
      Richard: I'm saying if it looks, sounds, feels radioactive, I'd park my ass in front of it with an M-16.

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Sound Effect
      In the final scene, we hear the sound effect that was commonly used in The Six Million Dollar Man whenever Steve Austin did anything "bionic".

    • Lou: We have a red ball.
      When a murder was predicted in the movie Minority Report, they received a red ball.
