In the US Military, JAG stands for "Judge Advocate General". This is the head Judge Advocate in charge of providing legal services in the military.

A primetime TV show on CBS shown on Tuesdays at 8pm EST. It is about the JAG Corps of the Navy as listed above. It stars David James Elliott as Cmdr. Harmon "Harm" Rabb, Catherine Bell as Lt. Col. Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie, John M. Jackson as Admiral A. J. Chegwidden, Patrick Labyorteaux as Lt. Bud Roberts, and Karri Turner as Lt. j.g. Harriet Sims.

JAG is a decent show in my opinion, overall. However, the plots are very hokey sometimes, and this season's shows haven't been as good as last season's. Rudy from survivor made a guest apperance this year, which was kind of neat.

Harm is a former navy pilot who had to stop flying so he went to law school. Mac is a Marine who is more attractive than most colonels are. The Admiral is one of the coolest bosses, and reminds me of Captain Picard. Bud is decent comic relief. Don't expect too me show or you'll be disappointed, but it is entertaining.
