He's honestly not that bad. I am OK with him when I see him in late 80s/early 90s episodes. But you've explained it to yourself: This would once again, definitely, for sure, absolutely, be cartoon Jack all over again. 'Wacky hijinks' galore. Stupid comedy. Insufferable sh!t. 300%. 24/7. Once again he wouldn't work. Once again he'd die. Jennifer would grieve again. Oh my God, I'm going off to barf.
With some of the characters (all?) in the current soap climate, it's a careful-what-you-wish-for!
