    I can't believe they canceled this show!!! I watched the Unit religiously. Before I had DVR, I would watch it online! I never missed an episode! I hope another network picks this show up becuase it is worth it!!! I am very disapointed!!!

    Agreed, it had so much promise but that was inevitably cut short.

    Yup kinda saw that coming since the woman was let on the team. I'm sad they had to move away from reality to satisfy some moron's "what if a woman was allowed into the unit" fantasy. Glad I only bought the first two seasons.

    Don't forget Season 3. It was an awesome one even though it was shortened by the writers strike. That DVD has some nice extras on it.

    I posted this earlier but don't see it. I don't know if it has already been posted but for those who would like to watch the unit you can find it on DirectTV ch. 308, for all others the name of the ch. is "Sleuth", I ran across it today and they show it non stop from 8AM to 12 PM., I don't know if it's on everyday but it's on today (05/24 and I'm watching it now. I will check it out the rest of this week and let you know. Hope this helps you! Barb



    PS: I've also found that they run it in the afternoon too.


    OK, I've watched the unit off and on all day and up to 11:00 PM on May 24th, but it's the only day (Monday) that I have seen it on there, it's on every Monday, all day, beginning at 8 or 9 AM til 11 PM with an hour break for something else about 3 times as far a I could tell.

    This show was too good for network tv, thats the only possible reason for such a brilliant show to be canceled! The networks lose more and more viewers and they wonder why? They want cheap reality tv that costs $5.00 to make and will rake in viwers and advertisers! The small screen has really gone downhill except for gems like this, and then they get axed for more reality shows!

    I read all the comments on how everyone who watch the unit felt about it being canceled. I'm with the majority who believe the unit was/is one of the better shows thats been on T.V. in quite awhile. I pick up on the show on its rerun afterthe first season and fell in love with it. I couldn't get enough of it. It was just that good. As soon as I was getting into the fourth season, it abruptly ended. I couldn't believe it. The show, the cast, was well put together and well done. Like everyone else, it is my hope that another network or CBS picks the show back up and/or make a made for T.V. movie with the same cast. I almost feel like begging for this to happen.


    Please, bring back the UNIT. I miss the UNIT.

    Is CBS listening to what the people want? Or maybe they just listen to advertisers more?


    How in God's name can they renew Cold Case and cancel The Unit. The stories, acting and action don't even compare! Why doesn't CBS just cancel CSI, Criminal Minds and The Mentalist??


    They kept Cold Case and cancelled The Unit?? WOW!

    She wasn't 'in' the unit. If you watch the episode when she introduced, I believe season 4 episode 1, they specifically say there are no women in the unit. Now I'm only going off of Col. Beckwith's book but it was mentioned in there that women were being recruited but the program was stopped. However, they still participate to act as a cover for the fellas and for other espionage operations.

    I JUST discovered this show I guess in reruns on the weekend. I LOVE IT! Too bad it's over. But I never watched network TV cuz it's so bad, so I never caught it until we had cable cut off. I LOVE all the actors!

    I am still hoping this will come back. Five seasons are not enough for something as great as this.

    Too bad it was cancelled, it could have run a couple more seasons on the material. Some moments had the "24" wow factor. Definitively worth a rewatch!

    Well after my next door neighbor told me I should get back into it, I took his advice and did so by buying the 3rd and 4th seasons. I'm glad I listened to him. I'm glad they actually resolved Hector's death. I thought they were gonna leave it open to speculation and I can't stand that. Also glad Mack and Tiffy worked things out. Haven't finished the fourth season, but I'm close. Shame they had to cancel it, but I think it ws probably best. I feel the Leon Drake story has just been dragged out and it also seems a little far-fetched. Unfortunately I feel my new favorite show, Burn Notice, may drag things out a bit too much. Just one layer of bad guys and false promises after another. Kinda the same with Walking Dead too. At least The Unit was fresh. Dennis Haysbert needs more work in Hollywood. He and the entire cast of the show are underrated. After Delta Force with Chuck Norris, this show needed to be made.


    EDIT: By the way, Whiplash made a good point in his Psycho episode. Redcap was never really "in" The Unit, but Jonas did call her a shooter in the episode when they were on the plane about to go help with the VP Assassination plot.
