JAG, or "Judge Advocate General," was a legal drama that revolved around the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The show was created by Donald P. Bellisario and aired on CBS from 1995 to 2005. JAG follows the work of the Judge Advocate General's office as they prosecute and defend military personnel in courts-martial cases and also investigate and uncover military-related crimes.

The show starred David James Elliott as Lieutenant Commander Harmon "Harm" Rabb Jr., a former fighter pilot turned lawyer who often found himself caught between his duty to the Navy and his own sense of justice. Catherine Bell played Lieutenant Colonel Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie, Harm's counterpart and romantic interest. John M. Jackson portrayed Rear Admiral A. J. Chegwidden, the commander of the Navy's Judge Advocate General's Corps. Patrick Labyorteaux played Lieutenant Bud Roberts, a junior officer who aspired to become a JAG lawyer. Tracey Needham portrayed Lieutenant J.G. Meg Austin, a smart and fearless lawyer. Zoe McLellan played Petty Officer Jennifer Coates, Admiral Chegwidden's assistant and a romantic interest for Bud Roberts.

Throughout the show's ten-year run, the main cast was joined by several recurring characters and guest stars. Terry O'Quinn played Colonel Will Ryan, Mac's father and a Vietnam War veteran suffering from PTSD. Dean Stockwell portrayed Senator Edward Sheffield, Harm's estranged father. Andrea Thompson played Lieutenant Jordan Parker, another JAG lawyer and a love interest of Harm. Corbin Bernsen portrayed Henry Willard, a former JAG lawyer who later became Secretary of the Navy. Other notable guest stars include Chris Beetem, Mae Whitman, Tamlyn Tomita, Larry Poindexter, and Andrea Parker.

JAG's storylines often involved national security issues and current events, such as terrorism, espionage, and nuclear weapons. The show also explored personal and ethical dilemmas faced by military personnel, such as sexual assault, domestic violence, and discrimination. JAG was known for its accurate depiction of the military justice system and its attention to detail in portraying military procedure and protocol.

JAG was canceled by CBS in 2005, but its characters and storylines continued in a spin-off series, NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service). NCIS became one of the most successful shows on television, and JAG's legacy lives on in its influence on the military drama genre.

In conclusion, JAG was a long-running legal drama that followed the lives of Navy lawyers as they worked to uphold military law and justice. The show's compelling storylines, dynamic characters, and accurate portrayal of military life and procedure made it a memorable part of television history. Fans of the show can still Watch JAG Online and relive the adventures of Harm, Mac, Bud, and their fellow JAG lawyers.
