A spin-off of "NCIS" that is set in the Crescent City. The cases and lives of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service's New Orleans branch, which consists of Senior Special Agent Dwayne Cassius "King" Pride, Special Agent Christopher LaSalle, and Special Agent Meredith Brody.
The Naval Criminal Investigation Service's Office of Special Projects takes on the undercover work and the hard to crack cases in LA. Key agents are G. Callen and Sam Hanna, streets kids risen through the ranks.
The show follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.

Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr. and Lieutenant Colonel Sarah MacKenzie are JAG lawyers, who together investigate and litigate crimes committed by Navy and Marine personnel. Occasionally, they engage in adventurous activities in order to solve their cases. With Rabb's fighter pilot background, and MacKenzie's good looks, they are a hot team both in and out of the courtroom. Written by

During Tracey Needham's time on the show, when wearing her ribbons, she was shown as wearing only the Meritorious Unit Commendation. She should also have been wearing the National Defense Medal which had been authorized for all service personnel serving during the period 2 Aug 1990 to 30 Nov 1995. Tracey Needham first appeared as Lt(jg) Meg Austin on 30 Sept 1995. See more »
In later seasons of JAG, the introduction shows a brief segment of AH-64 Apache attack helicopters flying in formation. However, as the opening credits are intended to display Navy and Marine Corps activities, this would be a bit out of place, as neither the Navy nor the Marine Corps operates the AH-64 - in the US Military, only the Army does, while the Marine Corps employs the AH-1W 'Whiskey' Cobra.

I love "JAG." That's just about all there is to say. I got hooked on it one night after seeing the episode of "Maggie Winters" on which David James Elliott guest-starred. The show has given me a new appreciation for the military, and I really like the diversity of the characters and storylines. (Of course, being a "shipper," I love the UST between the two main characters, but that's not the only reason I watch the show.)
As I once said to a friend to whom I was recommending the show: "It will give you a new perspective on the military side of our socio-political system; it will open your eyes to the travesty around you, with storylines weekly pulled from the headlines; it will offer you several pieces of eye candy, varying in gender, age, and race; and it will broaden your horizons when it comes to what types of quality programming you permit yourself to watch. . . . With creative episodal writing, there are references to many past episodes, keeping the regular viewer constantly on his or her toes."
Really, though, "JAG" is a very enjoyable show, something that I can sit and watch with my parents and still talk about with my friends. It's really just a great show, and I'd recommend it to anyone.
