The action episodes contine to thrill, but at times with resolutions that stretch plausability. "The Embassy" is probably the best with a plot twist that explores the limits of military solutions to the world's problems and lifts the series above military recruiting propaganda. "Nobody's Child" and "Goodbyes" present an emoltional side of Harm we knew he had but only saw glimpses of before. Most of the courtroom episodes are much more realistic than shows like the legal farce, "Matlock,"(my 35 years practicing law more than qualify me to say this) but "People v. Mac" strains legal credibility. However, the episode does give us a glimpe into Mac's Freudian past, and presents a disturbing insight into Brumby, a newcomer to JAG.
Although all of the episodes can "stand alone," CIA Agent Clayton Webb, Congressperson Bobbi Latham, Vietnam vet Roscoe Martin, SEAL Lt. Vernon Rivers, Lt. Cmdr. Theresa Coulter, Francesca Paretti (AJ's daughter) and Special Agent Clark Palmer (Boo!), all reappear from past seasons in their good/good, bad/good or bad/bad rolls. However viewing these episodes without at least a fleeting knowledge of what went before does not allow one to experience the growth of the characters in their rolls that makes the series all that more entertaining and enjoyable.
It shows much of what the military people may have to go through within political limitations and its incompetency. I believe those environment will be always there. This also shows how critical it is for the American people to elect the best people possible for our leaders. It makes the viewers to wonder how much truths are set aside when decisions are made by our leaders in this country.
The tools in the show may get outdated but what the creator wants to tell the viewers will always be refreshing.
It has great casts and the leading man (David James Elliot) is the perfect man to play the role, hansom, great voice, and great acting) He also pays very close attention to the detail in his role. After you see the show a movie such as 'Top Gun' looks very tinny. Tom Cruise does not even come close in his role next to David J Elliot. It is no wonder he has earned a 'Audy Murphy' award for his performance.
I can also understand why this show has not been a darling of Holliwood because all the principles presented in JAG are against what they believe in the movie kingdom.
I didn't think it would keep getting better and better but what can I say it does. Season 4 is no dissapointment. I love how it is current with the year it was made as far as what wars are going on.
I think watching this also makes us remember our troops more and all they are doing for us. We can sit and enjoy watching DVD's safe in our homes because they are protecting and defending our freedom.
The adventures are so varied and different in each show. Season two has more courtroom time it's investigations and drama.
I cannot say enough good about this show. You will not be disappointed.
It is a shame that during the last 2 years of the show it appeared that the creater of the show was engaging in destruction of the masterpiece and longest running of all the shows he has created. I also keep wondering why Paramount allowed the DVD's to be released with the name of David James Elliott misspelled on the Season 3 and 4 case. After all he played the main character of the show.
