JAG first season DVDs will have unaired episode

JAG DVDA lot of people who started watch JAG a little later in the show's run might not realize that the first season of the show was on NBC, not CBS. NBC canceled it after the first season, and in a rare move, another network (CBS) picked it up. But at the end of the first season, there was an episode titled "Skeleton Crew." NBC never showed the episode because they canceled the show. And when the second season started, CBS decided not to show the episode either, because Catherine Bell played David James Elliott's girlfriend in the episode, and she would later be on the show as Mac. Certain scenes of the episode were shown later, however, in another episode.

But fans, there's good news: the episode will finally be seen when the first season DVD set hits stores! The set will be released on July 25.

Interestingly, Skeleton Crew was broadcast in Australia. You can Imagine my surprise when we got to the second series and there was no reference to the previous series final.

Parts of the "Skeleton Crew" episode were recycled in the second or third season of the show and helped explain Harm's initial reaction to seeing Mac. The show's run on NBC was full of network interference - they were the ones responsible for replacing Andrea Parker with Tracey Needham as Harm's partner entirely because they wanted a blonde actress.
