Episode Title: Mishap
Airs: 1999-11-30 at
  • Lon Grahnke

    Deserves a medal for daring gambles in timely storytelling. [22 Sep 1995]

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Bianculli

    While some of "JAG" is cerebral and character-driven like "Columbo," other portions are jazzed-up enough to feel like a high-tech Navy recruiting film. [22 Sep 1995]

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    The whodunit isn't bad, satisfying enough in an old-hat way, but what sets JAG apart is its crisp, sleek tone. [22 Sep 1995]

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    The story proves interesting enough, the visuals are impressive and the acting lands somewhere above average. [10 Sep 1995]

    Dallas Morning News Full Review
  • Ann Hodges

    JAG's a long, long way from just another courtroom scene. [23 Sep 1995]

    Houston Chronicle Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    There's nothing new about JAG's plots; they're the sort of good-guy-against-the-establishment stuff you'd expect. ... But [David James] Elliott has quickly established himself as a real TV star anyway.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • John J. O'Connor

    The suspense is effectively maintained in this high-seas whodunit. [22 Sep 1995]

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Todd Everett

    "JAG" borrows from recent features "Crimson Tide" and "Apollo 13" in being jargon-heavy to help generate atmosphere but as Rabb's character is allowed to develop, "JAG" could become one of the season's highlights. [22 Sep 1995]

    Variety Full Review
  • Steve Johnson

    A neat melding of character, mystery, and big, glossy action. [23 Sep 1995]

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Frederic M. Biddle

    The pilot's first hour is a sensational military drama, buffed to a spit shine and unafraid to condemn military sexism and homophobia. The second hour falls apart into eye-glazing flag-waving - like "Top Gun" with lesser production values. [16 Sep 1995]

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • John Freeman

    In the air, it's a case of "Top Gun" meets "Star Wars," with all the cool, high-tech trappings. Aboard ship, however, it's a low-brow melodrama. [23 Sep 1995]

    San Diego Union-Tribune Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    Comparisons to Top Gun are inevitable, but NBC's JAG flies at lower and more predictable altitudes. This "Midlevel Gun" fires mostly blanks. [23 Sep 1995]

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Though I'm happy to recommend 'JAG' as simple, lightweight fun, there are some moments that may try your patience. [23 Sep 1995]

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    This is an old scow of a series, hefty and handsome but listing toward tedium.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Pilot plays like network TV's answer to the Tailhook scandal, pretending to wear a feminist attitude while managing to make its women characters ridiculous, obnoxious or scantily clad. [23 Sep 1995]

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Howard Rosenberg

    The premiere has a nice look, but not nice enough to compensate for a plot that lacks suspense and features a mystery whose culprit should be so obvious that you may suspect a red herring. [22 Sep 1995]

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    But when it's not literally up in the air, "JAG" sinks. It's bottom-of-the-barrel "Top Gun." The exploits of a Navy lawyer who walks around as if he's balancing a chafing dish on his head prove to be yawnable and predictable. [23 Sep 1995]

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    A contrived and predictable drama in military dress. [23 Sep 1995]
