A woman radar-intercept officer (RIO) disappears at night from an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea. Two lawyers in the JAG Corps of the US Navy, Lt. Harm Rabb and Lt. Caitlin "Kate" Pike, investigate. Two Italian fishermen discover the body of the missing person. Despite resentment and resistance from several sources, Harm and Kate sort through the evidence, and they find the answers. Harm, a former Naval aviator, gets a ride in the back seat in combat aboard an F-14 Tomcat, of the type which he previously flew; while doing so, after the bird sustains damage, and the pilot loses consciousness, Harm flies back to the carrier and makes a successful landing at night.

Jay Leno: This just in. One of the Navy, uh, F-14 Tomcats shot down a couple of Serbian MiGs over Bosnia this afternoon. Listen to this, the Radar Intercept Officer in the Tomcat was a woman! Boy, you thought getting shot down by a woman in a bar was bad. Oh, my God!

love the show
15 November 2004 | by JAG_MASH_NUTSee all my reviews

I was 5 years old when this show came out. As I got older, I was opened up to the world of planes, law and the military, because my parents watched it every week. I never liked it, because I didn't understand it.

Two years ago, during a very difficult, trying, sad time in my life, I discovered this show again, just before the start of the ninth season. I threw myself into the plot lines, sexual tension, action, adventure and the very juicy David James Elliott. I became hooked, my parents and friends call it an absolute obsession, but it's great anyway. If Harm and Mac don't get together, I'll cry. The introduction of Mattie Grace was a welcome one, because she really opened Harm up and got him to admit the truth about his feelings for his partner. Her departure was bittersweet. She brought a lot to the show, and I'm sad to see her go, but maybe it's for the best. I cried during their final scene together. This show is wonderfully, although slightly predictable, written, and the day it ends will probably kill me...joking! I am now 14 years old, considerably wiser...although still I have a lot to learn. But now that I am no longer a 5 year old who doesn't understand, I realize that this show is a gem, hidden in a pile of crap...and so I sign off with this advice... WATCH THE FREAKING SHOW...OR YOU'LL BE SORRY!!! :)

Mac: In one way or another, we're all searching for something. Harm: Oh yeah, what are you searching for? Mac: What every woman wants, a great career, a good man and

comfortable shoes...lots and lots of them.

Mac: Well, I do have a tattoo; I'm a pretty good arm wrestling; and, although, I don't like the term, I am, technically, a jar head. Harm: Whoa, whoa, whoa…back up. You have a tattoo? How come I've never seen it? Where would one find this tattoo? Mac: I'm afraid that's classified information, Commander!

Harm: You have tattoos...
