JAG: An Inside Look
The Military Accuracy
“Get ready for action, adventure and suspense in the first season of TV’s longest-running military drama, JAG. The first season of its 10-year reign introduces former flying ace Harmon “Harm” Rabb of the Navy’s Judge Advocate General. Now an attorney, Harm investigates, prosecutes and defends military criminals in cases that often take him behind enemy lines… both in Washington, D.C., and overseas. Catch the action from the beginning with all 21 episodes, including the rarely seen “Skeleton Crew.””
JAG: The Complete First Season is not rated.
This first season was interesting for the series. The cast changed frequently, the type of story varied a lot, and the final episode ends on a cliffhanger that leads into Season Two. The show also had a big emphasis in women’s role in the military. A number of the episodes deal with issues arising from integrating women among the men. There were also a number of guest stars worth noting. Included among them are Lost’s Terry O’Quinn, Oliver North, Flash’s John Wesley Shipp, Michael Jai White, and others.
There are a few bonus features included on the DVD. You’ll find featurettes covering the start of the series, the casting, and the military accuracy (despite not having military cooperation in the first season). There’s also a commentary on the pilot by series creator/executive producer/writer/director Donald P. Bellisario.
