I loved this show. It was comedic genius and it should have lasted longer than one season.

Casting Verne as Napoleon always made me laugh.

Well, you sorta got your wish, Jack of All Trades got a truncated second season of 8 episodes, though the first season was only 14 episodes, so the combined 22 episode count was really only on the low end of the episode numbers of a full season of a normal network TV show, or at least it was back in 2000/2001 when a full season of a network TV show lasting 26 episodes was still fairly standard.

I enjoyed Jack of All Trades for what it was, a totally tongue-in-cheek action comedy with a Napoleon only loosely inspired by the actual historical figure. Casting Verne Troyer was kind of stunt casting as, contrary to popular belief, Napoleon was a fairly average adult male height (5′ 7″), but, given that the show wasn't supposed to be a docudrama that was in any war realistic, Troyer was a good choice for the role.

Yeah, the height thing came from British political cartoons of the era...and it kinda just stuck.

I heard the height thing originally emerged from the different between the British and French foot. The french foot is longer, resulting in small numbers for measurements.

I heard that he had the strength of five gorillas

I'm not sure what to think about Mr. Troyer's death. My initial instinct is "Awww... poor dude. He was only 49!" But then again, he had a successful career and probably lived his life to the fullest, so that's to be celebrated. On the other hand, he was battling alcoholism near the end, which often makes life a burden. But on the other hand....

And so on, and so forth. God damnit. Celebrity deaths are a lot easier when they're considerate enough to give us a clear narrative through-line.

It sucks when celebrity lives are as messy as our own.
