First the obvious. A Commander wearing Lieutenant sleeve stripes. Ribbons out of order. A female Marine wearing her overseas cap at a 45 degree angle like some Canadian RAF Airman in WW2. And the worst of all a subordinate LT mocking a Captain on at least three occasions during a staff meeting. But best of all her comment: "What's with the clothes?" when that Captain walks in wearing his Dress Uniform. No Marine talks like that to a superior and no senior Marine Officer would take it. Marines outside with no covers on, hands in their pockets, jackets unzipped, and haircuts way out of limits and Marine Military Police/Master at Arms sitting down while under arms and guarding a prisoner and on and on. Then we get to the two protagonists who can only be described as Harm and Mac Light from the old series JAG.
This can only be described as a poor attempt to relive the magic that JAG was. The dialogue is lame, only a poor attempt at fleshing out the characters, and actors who have no clue about Marine values, traditions or behavior. They act like they're a bunch of Millenials working at some loosely loosely law firm who just happen to wear uniforms. As a Veteran, loyal viewer of all 10 years of JAG, and one who believes you disrespect the military by not caring enough about getting things right this gets one more chance in the next episode. If no change, I'd rather watch reruns of Leave it to Beaver.
