JAG/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


My main area of expertise is the character of Admiral A. J. Chegwidden portrayed by actor John M. Jackson. I created and maintain "The Admiral Fact Book," which covers all information known about the Admiral so far from the show. However, I have watched JAG since the first episode and been involved in on-line JAG Fandom for several years and believe I can answer most general questions about the show.

Experience in the area

I run the John M. Jackson Admiration Society, the unofficial fan club of actor John M. Jackson, and maintain its website. I also was involved in putting on the first ever JAG Convention and then went on to found the JAGFanFest - both west and east coast events. I have met almost all the actors as well as many of the writers, directors, and production staff. I occasionally write JAG fanfic, and I am the editor of The Jackson Journal, the on-line newsletter of the JMJAS.

What do you like about this subject?

JAG is an excellent show combining courtroom drama with action, adventure, comedy, and human elements. Many episodes are based on current events.

It's been a while, but I believe I counted Australia as twice.  They started to fight, which ended up with Bud getting a broken jaw, and then Chegwidden made them fight, which was the second one.  I'm

Hi Pete - As depicted on the show, he'd been reunited with his daughter after a long estrangement and then gotten engaged and caught his girlfriend in bed with someone else. So there had been some major

Hi Laurie -     Harm had minor surgery that restored his ability to see at night.  That allowed him to go back to flying.  It was in the Season 4 episode "Second Sight."  As for Brumby, he is part of the

2014-02-15 Suits or True Detective:

Hi Peter,    Unfortunately, I've never seen either of these shows, so I can't comment on them.  I can suggest Rizzoli and Isles as a show I really enjoy.  I haven't seen every episode, but I've never seen
