Harm often gets assignments that require more than his legal-eagle skills. In "Washington Holiday," he's ordered to escort a Romanian princess (Kiersten Warren) through Washington while her father negotiates with the U.S. State Department for application to NATO. It's not an unpleasant task by any stretch, but it is perilous, considering an unidentified assassin is lurking around the nations capital, waiting to kill the royal daughter. "Cowboys and Cossacks" is a tense drama about two Cold War-era warship captains, an American and a Russian, who turn a joint war games exercise into a personal grudge matchwith Harm, Mac, and Bud trapped as official observers. "Rendezvous" is an interesting story about professional ethics that pits Mac against Harm in a case involving a wife abuser--with Mac reluctantly providing the accused man, a monstrous fellow, her best defense. Created by Donald P. Bellisario (Quantum Leap), JAG is never dull and often surprising. --Tom Keogh

But WHY are there well over half of the episodes missing?!?!
CBS, Amazon - seriously. Why even bother posting these 7 episodes of Season 2 when there's 13 missing?
The only thing I am hoping for now is, that they will also publish the DVDs over here in Germany very soon. If the 1st season isn't at least announced here by November, I think I will go for the American DVD boxes.
I can recommend this series for all fans of action and military series (or movies).
The Season of course continues its focus of Harmon Rabb (David James Elliot) but introduces Sarah McKenzie, played by the talented and beautiful Catherine Bell who, as some have alluded to, adds a romantic and sexual element to the show. But past that, Bell's character simply trumps that of Lt JG Austin (Tracy Needham) with personality and character. The fact that she's a Marine undoubtedly augments her role.
One could argue however that the show's change in focus was the saving grace. Season 1 was action outside the courtroom. Season 2 places the camera more inside the courtroom, depicting military law and illustrating just what it is JAG's have to do. This was a brilliant move. For one, it adds a level of realism to the show, as the audience no longer is left coming to terms with how a lawyer would end up so often in the trenches. And second, the focus to courtroom drama contributes to the development of Harm's character and others. It's like discovering a new favorite flavor.
There are other contributing elements--such as Bellisario being able to shoot scenes that aren't taken so much from Hollywood scenes--that make Season 2 and the following seasons great, but JAG's improvement can mostly be traced to the above reasons. The best part is Season 2 is only a taste of things to come; JAG's greatness has been embodied in the model Season 2 established and the following seasons carried on.
TV was rarely ever better. So, to the people who do the work of getting JAG onto DVD, I have one thing to say: BRING 'EM ON - AND DON'T DILLY-DALLY!!!
Can't wait for the 3rd and 4th Season!
