Two thoughts about JAG and the C-130:
I was really looking forward to JAG when it first went on the air but I gave it up because the Prod/Dirs couldn't make up their minds about the viewers they were trying to reach.
I'd watch anything with a USN flyer in it even if he is also (very unlikely) an atty. But then they had to go with the love interest crap and all these high-ranking broads bossing folks around.
Watched it 2-3 times and gave it up.
RE the C-130 carrier landing.
What if Jimmy Doolittle had Hercs instead of B-25s in WW2?
Bet the war would have ended much sooner!
