The admiral helps to solve a problem for an unexpected visitor. In the Indian Ocean, Mac and Gunny investigate a death; Mac prosecutes, and Harm shows up, defends, and figures it out. Friction heats ...
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 August 2, 1990 to November 30, 1995. Tracey Needham first appeared as Lieutenant Junior Grade Meg Austin on September 30, 1995. See more »
Every scene begins with a graphic which depicts the time in military format and the word "Zulu". Zulu is the military phonetic designation for the time zone known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). In most cases, the time listed corresponds to the apparent local time rather than ZULU time. For instance, the start of the workday in Norfolk Virginia would more likely be 0700 Eastern Standard (Romeo) Time or 0700 Eastern Daylight (Quebec) Time and certainly not 0700 Zulu, which would correspond to a local time of 0200 or 0300 which would be early even by military standards.

Following in his father's footsteps as a Naval aviator, Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb Jr. suffered a crash while landing his Tomcat on a storm-tossed carrier at sea. Diagnosed with night blindness, Harm transferred to the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps, which investigates, defends and prosecutes the law of the sea. There, with fellow JAG lawyer Major Sarah MacKenzie, he now fights in and out of the courtroom with the same daring and tenacity that made him a top gun in the air.

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.
