The admiral unexpectedly arrives in Sydney, and the adventure continues. Mic prosecutes the US former petty officer, and Harm defends. Bud sustains an injury, and courtroom fireworks ensue. The JAG gang take the deserter back to the US.
A petty officer apparently was murdered during a visit by USS Chicago to Sydney, Australia, 28 years ago; the dead man has reappeared, become arrested, and asked to see a JAG officer of the USN. Harm, Bud, and Mac all wind up there.
After a big interview with David James Elliott about his time on JAG, we’ve been lucky enough to catch up with Patrick Labyorteaux, who worked closely with David on the series and played popular character Bud Roberts. Patrick had some very challenging storylines later on in the series and even reprised his role for NCIS.
JAG was a smash hit in Australia and the Seven Network were disappointed when NBC cancelled the series after the first season, but CBS picked it up and ran with it for another 9 seasons. It has led to the creation of one the most successful shows in CBS history, NCIS. David James Elliott starred in the series for the entire 10 series run.
