> Description 
JAG (the American Military acronym for "Judge Advocate General") was also used as the title of an American adventure drama television show, produced by Belisarius Productions, in association with Paramount Television Network. The series first aired on NBC, but was canceled in 1996. Rival network CBS picked up the series and aired it for nine more seasons. Episodes are widely shown in syndication on cable and satellite networks throughout the entire world. The show has been criticized for using stock footage from other well-known military films, including Top Gun, The Hunt for Red October, and Clear and Present Danger.

The series underwent a change of direction following the September 11, 2001 attacks, incorporating the real-life War on Terrorism and associated military actions into many storylines.

In 2005, David James Elliott decided to leave the show to pursue other projects after not being offered a contract renewal from the show's producers. The show introduced new younger characters including former As the World Turns star Chris Beetem in an effort to unsuccessfully stave off cancellation. Regardless, CBS announced the cancellation of the show after ten seasons on April 4, 2005, the final episode aired April 29. The final episode "Fair Winds and Following Seas", saw Harm and Mac being assigned to different posts: Harm in London, and Mac in San Diego, California. They finally confront their feelings and decide to get married. The episode ends with them tossing a JAG challenge coin to decide who will give up their career to be with the other. Although we never see the outcome, as the screen fades to black the face of the coin is showing, which says: "JAG 19952005".
