Tv Season Info

A popular military drama about cases tried by Judge Advocate General (JAG) lawyers is not strictly courtroom-bound as its stars often take to the field to investigate. The series premiered on NBC in September 1995, but its audience built steadily after it moved to CBS in January 1997, a move that executive producer Donald P. Bellisario says allowed for 'more mix of courtroom [and] personal stories.' The series spun off 'NCIS.'

Critic Reviews for JAG: Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

Comparisons to Top Gun are inevitable, but NBC's JAG flies at lower and more predictable altitudes. This ''Midlevel Gun'' fires mostly blanks.

While some of "JAG" is cerebral and character-driven like "Columbo," other portions are jazzed-up enough to feel like a high-tech Navy recruiting film.

November 29, 2018 | Full Review…

This is an old scow of a series, hefty and handsome but listing toward tedium.

November 29, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

A satisfying (if not always cutting-edge) meat-and-potatoes drama that offers a solid mix of action, intrigue, and (mostly tame) romance.

October 23, 2018 | Full Review…

The exploits of a Navy lawyer who walks around as if he's balancing a chafing dish on his head prove to be yawnable and predictable.

November 29, 2018 | Full Review…

JAG is better than its moniker: a neat melding of character, mystery, and big, glossy action.
