Disappointing
14 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

JAG is among my all-time favorite programs, and I have all ten seasons on DVD. The first season was great from the start, but the second season began with three below-average episodes. (Maybe more, but in my current run through the series I'm only up to third episode of second season.) These three episodes include happy endings that defy credibility. In Jinx, a RIO quits because he believes he brings bad luck to every pilot he flies with. Rabb agrees to fly with him on a missing man formation funeral flight. An accident happens, of course, and Rabb and the RIO work together to land the F-14. Then, suddenly, the "jinx" is over. Rabb killed it by surviving the mission. It was amazing how quickly he recovered from having a piece of plexiglass in his eye.

I suspect we can chalk up these poor episodes at beginning of second season to fact that JAG was canceled by NBC and picked up by CBS. It was retooled and essentially a new show, so Bellisario was stuck trying to make new characters Sarah McKenzie and Bud Roberts fit into the fun and games. Not to mention whatever pressure he was under from CBS.
