Did You Know?


Talking to General and Mrs. Cresswell, Mac states that their daughter, if she stayed in the Academy and became a Naval officer, would never serve on a submarine. Just 5 years after this episode aired, the Navy announced that women would be allowed to serve on submarines. They would be assigned in groups of three to the eight teams assigned to four submarines. Two SSBNs and two SSGNs. The officers on these two types of submarines are berthed in 3-person compartments. This means there is no special retrofitting in order to accommodate the female officers.

The Legal Writing Gets Less Imaginative
10 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

In previous seasons, JAG played like an exciting legal thriller. In these latter episodes, there is little intrigue. This particular episode involves an infantry Marine in Iraq gunning down an unarmed Iraqi who was begging for his life and the act being caught on camera. Having watched JAG for a while, I can't remember any combat troop being convicted of killing a civilian. What you will find in this show is a total lack of any criticisms of what the US military is meant to do: kill people efficiently. The only problems that apparently plague the military are that it sometimes mistreats some women and homosexuals; other than that, it is the march of God on earth.

In the case, they find evidence that the unarmed Iraqi who was shot was actually reaching for explosives, thus justifying the slaying of all those Iraqi civilians since the dawn of the Iraq War. One wonders if the Pentagon funded this show, as it is unabashed propaganda.
