Really Bad Guys

As you can see, the ten-year run of the JAG television series has produced a substantial number of “bad guys.” “Really Bad Guys” was a good enough label at first but eventually it was clear that some were more vicious and evil than others – and some you just couldn’t get rid of. For example some were supposedly good characters but had the habit of continually trying to thwart Harm and Mac’s plans – the SECNAV comes to mind.

Then there are the Terribly Bad Guys who are more than just an annoyance or a schemer and will or have killed someone (or hired someone to do it). Does Clark Palmer or Harry Drax ring a bell?

And, lastly, there are the terrorists who make a habit of killing people – like Sadik Fahd and Teresa Marcello.
