Did You Know?


A Season 10 episode set in San Diego was intended as a possible spin-off show starring Catherine Bell, because it was clear at that point that David James Eliot would not return for an 11th season even if the show was not canceled, AND it was clear the show would be canceled anyway. The series finale referenced this when Bell's Col. MacKenzie was promoted and stationed in San Diego. CBS declined to do a spin off anyway. See more »


Midshipman Mike 'Mikey' Roberts: Have you ever been in love?
Harm: If you're looking for relationship advice, Mikey, you should talk to your brother.
Midshipman Mike 'Mikey' Roberts: I tried that sir, but Bud doesn't want to talk to me about it.
Harm: Why not?
Midshipman Mike 'Mikey' Roberts: Uh, it- it concerns General Cresswell's daughter.
Harm: Have you lost your mind?

Jag - final episode
23 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I realize that there could not have been any alternative for either Mac or Harm to resign in order for the series to end. However I think that General Creswell would have been in a position to let Harm take up his Captains Billet in London and Mac could have become a military attaché at the American Embassy in Londo, or she could have done a temporary posting with either the Army or Airforce JAG folks in Europe thereby preserving her commission and keeping her out of her husband's chain of command.

I really do miss this series. I would have liked to have seen more of General Creswell, he was turning out to be more of a pussy-cat than he would have liked to admit.

I must ask though if the Naavy would have allowed Harm to keep his carrier Quals up to date if he wasn't flying regularly. But then he flew often enough to be a hero and get decorated.

As a season ender I should have rated it a 10, I rated it a 5 because there were other alternatives open to Gen. Creswell. Especially in this era of two military careers in one family.
