He was very good
The way it was done gives you a pause to think...
His part was interesting thank goodness a friend taped it for me I could rewatch and see what I missed the first time around.
For me it was a nice Xmas present since it has been yrs since I have seen him doing any tv.
Well, since you have seen it and there are those among us who did not have the opportunity, either because they are from outside the USA or they didn't have enough sense to set their VCR , I nominate you to give us a synopsis of the show.
whadaya say? C'mon babe, for all of us less fortunate LM fans!
oh, and by the way, Happy holidays to you too Hon.
Geee sometimes it's so dang easy to be nominated for things
Ok first just so you know if I had not had a good friend tape it for me I would not have been able to see it.. I still have an old fashion antenna..
The show opens with Jake trying to stop a woman from getting away and is nearly ran down by a car in doing so.. Then he is being chewed out by his boss for letting her get away.
Jake and another agent are next seen outside a house, as a woman is leaving..as they get closer they are greeted by a gun being ponited at them.. and the question "Are they lawyers or bill collectors"
They introduce themselves and asks for the gun to be put away,They tell the man who is holding the gun (his is in a robe and has not shaved yet..His hair is mused up and a cigar is between his teeth.) they hope they could talk to him about the KBG agent .. The guy tells them they can call him "Dick"
Once in the house he offers them a Fresca ( a soft drink) then looks over the folder they show him.. He tells them what he thinks of her. and says they should kill her...When they tell him they need his help he says for $ 80,000 ok when they tell him they can't do that he says ok make it 50,000. , Jake tell him, his contract says he can be called back to duty any time and if he refusses he can be fined .He then decides he should get dressed and go see the *Boss* Who he plans on telling a few things , and asks what the Boss's * name is
In the office he is very pleased to see the *Boss* is a female, He is dressed in a plain shirt and slacks, once he gets a run down on what has happened up to this point He starts ordering some names to be run and all information on them found since he thinks the Woman is trying to find *sleepers* left in the U.S.
It's not long before names and addresses start to pop up.
Dick decides he is going after the agent himself and says he is going to take Jake as he has let her get away once and will not let it happen again., He is told he has to have a exam to be sure he is who he says he is.. While the lady doctor is out of the room, he and Jake have a short talk about women and men not being able to be just firends they are either lovers or enimies, he magaes to not have a *full* exam by tearing up the orders, The lady boss comes in and ask if he is ok and the dcotor says yes. knowing he had not been fully looked over.
He uses almost all thier expensce money on a car that there are only 3000 of.. They go to a gambling house that one of the *Sleepers* is suppose to go to, to try and make contact.. Dick uses the rest of the money to look like a high roller, He managse to get Jake to try his luck at a table to try and find the *Sleeper* he gaves him a saying to say if a guy asnwer yes then he is the one they are looking for, Jake says it and ends up in afight becasue what he said was The guys mother smells like a monkey...This has a fight brake out. Dick uses it as a chance to leave the room with a waitress he seams to have taken a liking to.
The Boss finds out that one of the people they were to check out has been found dead,, he worked at a Nukular reactor and some chemical has been found missing.
While Jake is explaining to his boss what happened,over his cell phone.. Dick pulls up to tell him Jkae tells him he is off the mission and tells him to get lost, Dick pulls a gun and forces Jake in the car... As they are driving Dick makes him give him his cell phone that he throws out the window, then takes him to a empty parking lot where Dick asks him just what is he..Jake trys to act like he dose not know what he is talking about. but Dick tells him about an *accident* that happened when he was with the orgainzation., Hearing a noise in the trunk Jake makes Dick open it, but before he dose he knocks Jake out and leaves.
Dick is meets with the KGB agent and making some referances that lead you to believe they were abit more then friends.. He hands the waitress over to her and her friends, He gets a briefcase of money
The next day Jake is being looked over by the lady doctor when He saks if there were any other *accidents* like his .. She say yes there were but they didn't work. then asks if he thinks if something like that may have happened to Dick, Then they are called to another room. To find a very well dressed man who introduces himself as Richard and he claims to have been in Finland for a month and came as soon as he got thier meassage for him to report.
Richard can't understand how they could misstake this other man as him. Then tells them of a file that explains that the KBG was trying to clone many of the agents and he was one of the ones they wanted to, to find the file they would have to go to the basemeant and use a code word to get it, When the Boss gose to find it he tells them someone should take his DNA to prove who he is..The Boss comes back while he is being tested and says she found the file and what he said was in the file,
Jake is not ready to turst him yet.. Even when his DNA dose proves he is the Real Richard Fox.
They look over all the information they have to see Dick seamed to be very interested in one waitress, Jake plays out a idea to find she could be the daughter to one of the Sleeper who took his life two years before.. Jake wants to knwo why she is working in a casino when Richard says we have many Porfessionals for other countries working in low paying jobs, But she could arm a dirty bomb. Then they get information of a tape that the Lady KGB is going to set a bomb off at midnight and they have one hour to find it. after closer look at the tape, they realizse it is being done at a airfield.
When Jake wants to go after Dick his boss tells him they have their orders they look for the bomb. While driving to the airfield, Jake gets word from the lady doctor that doing a test on a cigar she took form Dick, says Dick and Richard are the same person, they go to Dick's home and Richard runs into the house to a face off with Dick...
Only he is the only one who sees Dick, Jake and his partner do not.. But Richard is carring on a converstaion with what looks like noone.Jake convinces Richard that they need Dick to find the girl and the bomb a few seconds after this Dick fades away and Richard tells Jake what he has in mind.
Next we are in a wearhouse and the wiatress is working on a bomb when it is done she arms a remote and hands it to the KBG agent at that moment Richard and Jake rush into the buliding in the car, The KGB aganet trys to set the bomb off and nothing happens.. The waitress had been contacted by Richard and he promised her the car and money if she would be sure the bomb would not work..
The next day Jake gets a comenation for stopping the bomb but his Boss tears it up becasue she is not happy he dose not follow orders.. He tells her if he is not allowed to do somethings his way he will one day lose it, leaving her to think about it,
Jake sits at Richards counter talking about cars for missions, When he mentions one Richard say he could run faster then that .. Jake looks at him and asks *Really*
