J - Jack of All Trades


Jack of All Trades is a half-hour long syndicated action-comedy television series which ran for two seasons in 2000. With Cleopatra 2525, it formed the Back2Back Action Hour and both shows were notable for being the first American non-animated action series to be produced in the half-hour format since the 1970s. The show was canceled in the middle of its second season.

The program is set at the turn of the 19th century on the fictional French-controlled island of Pulau-Pulau in the East Indies. Jack Stiles is an American secret agent sent there by President Jefferson. While there, he meets his British contact and love interest, English spy Emilia Rothschild. Together, the two work to stop Napoleon and various other threats to the United States. To the public, Jack is seen as Emilia's attaché (she sometimes serves as his), but when the need arises, he transforms into a masked hero: The Daring Dragoon.

  1. Great spotlight on a little known series - one quibble - there was a half hour action series in the 80's - Sidekicks - with Gil Gerard and Ernie Reyes. I think it was on ABC.

  3. Great show and I have the entire series on DVD. I remember it being a part of the "Action Pack" (or something like that) with Cleopatra 2525.

    A very imaginative series.

  5. Bruce Campbell rocks any show he's in. He makes Burn Notice awesome. And Brisco County Jr. was great as well.

  7. Jack of all Trades was a great show. Very fun with 'mini-me' Verne Troyer as Napoleon. Laugh out loud funny at times and I still remember all the words to the theme song. Now that should have posted.

  14. Hi Retro-Zombie Jeremy --
    You visited my site, so here I am visiting yours. Fun! And you've obviously got lots of good stuff in that addled brain of yous (don't let the zombies get it!).

    You made a comment on my site that I find mysterious: "you have to turn off the "captcha", and turn off the anonymous readers... you won't get spammed. People will not stop over, cause the captcha is murder... on the eyes." Do explain, please! You can reach me at beverly@beverlygray.com Thanks!

  15. I remember this one! I enjoyed the hell out of Bruce, but the rest of the show was kind of meh.

    Keep up the great work!

  25. Bruce rocks! And I remember this series. I found several episodes online. It was all very tongue-in-cheek, and Bruce being Bruce.

    May have to look these up again...

    Best,

  28. Thanks, my friend, for the shout out over at Beverly's blog. I hope I was able to help her!

    You're rocking this A-Z Challenge - I'm impressed! I never saw Jack of All Trades - usually I'm on top of action-comedy shows - wonder what I was up to in 2000! :)
