Bet you thought nobody under the age of 50 watched JAG. Well, Pusher is back to prove you wrong.
Damn terrorists! Seriously, y'all ruined JAG.
By May of 2001 Harm and Mac were kissing on the porch during Mac and Brumby's engagement party. For those of us who had waited six years for them to knock boots, we were halfway home. Just one bad costumed ratings stunt (Oy - remember that reenacted pirate episode? Yikes.) then a cliff-hanger season finale brought about the most anticipated season premiere for September 2001.
Harm was lost; adrift in the ocean and only Mac's psychic ability could save him. Sure it sounded like Passions but who cared? Harm would return to Mac, break-up with Renee, and get Mac to dump Brumby. Let's get this party started!
Then real-life horror created my TV nightmare. JAG suddenly became a military drama. Period. Mac was deployed to a carrier, everyone went to Afghanistan, Bud had his leg blown off and no one kissed anyone. Dude, I didn't sign up for this. By the time the writers were forcing Mac and CIA hack, Webb, together I went AWOL.
When news came last week that JAG was ending I figured the time had come. They're last chance to complete the mission. And after four years of abandonment I'm going to crawl back and watch the finale and pray that they get it right.
Because if they don't, the terrorists win.The Geek Files airs every Monday. For daily TV Headlines, features, and trivia, tune in to your inner geek at TVGeekSpeak.com!
