* NoWomansLand: The season 7 episode "Head to Toe" centers on this. A female naval aviator serving with the U.S. Air Force in UsefulNotes/SaudiArabia is defending herself on not wearing an abaya, and arguments are made for abiding by the culture and appeasing terrorists (OsamaBinLaden is even quoted as Americans in the Middle East being cause for Jihads, meaning the abayas will protect women) and against the subjugation of women and treatment of foreigners. When Mac is subjected to this poor treatment she sides with the defendant.

* PostNineElevenTerrorismMovie: The first two episodes after September 11 included several references to the terrorist attack and subsequent conflict in Afghanistan. Plot A was Harm trying to work with a retired admiral (to resolve a problem in China, who America needed as an ally in the fight against terrorism), who was going to turn him down but agreed to help resolve a problem after 9/11. Plot B has Mac presiding over two soldiers who were dueling, and she is upset that they were being idiots when their brothers and sisters are fighting and dying in the war on terror. Gunny is recalled to active service and Chegwidden wishes he could go with him. Future promos would place the series during the war on terror. OsamaBinLaden made a case a woman facing legal action hard (American bases in the Middle East as cause for Jihad, and the Americans subjecting women to Middle Eastern standards that the defendant had issues with). Harm reunites with his co pilot to fly security over the Superbowl. And a Seebee who supposedly died on 9/11 tries to avoid media attention after he saves his team from a terrorist attack, as when the widow of his business partner, who did not make it out, comes forward.

* RatedMForManly: The first season of ''JAG'' on {{NBC}} was essentially an ActionSeries, where the protagonist just happend to be a lawyer. Thus the show was marketed and made according to this trope. When the show moved to {{CBS}}, it was retooled to include more legal drama and soap opera elements, partially to appeal more to female audiences.

* UnCancelled: After the first season, the show was canceled by {{NBC}}. However, {{CBS}} picked it up immediately after NBC canceled it upon discovering that the show was [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff absolutely huge in Australia]] and was slowly gaining a cult audience in the United States. CBS proceeded to turn it into the biggest hit on the network. NBC did keep a finger in the pie by securing exclusive cable syndication rights for its USA Network.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Except for the pilot episode (partly shot on a decommissioned aircraft carrier in Texas), location filming in Washington DC for two season 4 episodes and a season 5 two part episode filmed in Sydney, Australia, the series was entirely shot in California locales.
** The crew certainly took advantage of the 100th and 101st episodes "Boomerang", filmed on location in Sydney, New South Wales, in order to turn Australia into SceneryPorn. And also the parts of early season 5 episodes filmed aboard the nuclear aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis certainly did that as well.



* YouLookFamiliar: Before playing Sarah Mackenzie, Catherine Bell played a Navy Lieutenant love interest of Harm's who died in the (intended) first season finale. Harm notices this, and is visibly stand-offish towards her at first because of it. In real life, Bell all but begged to be brought back on the show as another character, and the two characters looking identical was utilized.
-->'''Mac:''' ''Sounds like I have a twin out there.''
--> ''FlashBack of Mac's doppelganger being [[ZippingUpTheBodybag zipped up in a bodybag]]''
-->'''Harm:''' ''Not anymore.''
** Another example is with Lt. Loren Singer, whose actress played an assassin in an earlier episode. This, along with Bellisario's kids showing up, suggests a little nepotism, as David James Elliot (Harm) and Nanci Chambers (Singer) are married in real life.
** Also, Alexander Kuznetsov appears first in "''Cowboys and Cossacks''" as Commander Kretchiak, and in later episodes as a different Russian officer named Captain Alex Volkonov (who becomes Harm's Russian analogue throughout the series).
** John Walcutt once played a defendant, Caleb Farmer, who was put to death for his crimes, with Mac defending him and Harm prosecuting. Later, he would come back to play Tom Johnson father of the young girl Harm had befriended and seeking to be her legal guardian.
** Barry Jenner (''Series/{{Dallas}}'', ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'') first appeared in "''Ares''" as the captain of an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, and later in "Mr. Rabb Goes to Washington" as the asshole ZNN reporter Norman Delaporte.
** Jerry Hardin (''Deep Throat'' in ''Series/TheXFiles'') first appears as an airplane mechanic in "Full Engagement", and as a Senator in "Impact" (the latter a UFO-themed episode no less).
