  • CHLORINE GAS ATTACK! Typical AMERICAN weekend, until Jonas finds dead birds WHILE RUNNING. GAME ON.

    1.0
    Somebody tell me why this program got axed and much of the drivel remains? I realize we are far enough passed 9-11, that soldiering has become the typical peacetime non-chic



    The characters were interesting. The writing solid. Week after week the story and back story were interesting. THIS PARTICULAR show, involves a typical american weekend. Soccer, jogging etc. Jonas out for a run happens upon dead birds. Thinking canary in a coal mine, he sounds the alarm and begins getting those he cares about safe. Cool breeze and dirt diver were at the soccer game, they lead folks back to the apartment and seal it off. Betty blue, in his car, tries to help some motorists by herding them into a refrigerated truck. If you are not familiar with the program, by all means give it a chance.moreless

    Dont get me wrong i love this show. But just doing minimal research into the affects of chlorine on the air and water systems, going out into chlorine gas would be the stupidest thing to do. Secondly Jonas covering his face with the a wet rag also results in absorbing more of the chlorine not less. I realise its just a tv show and not everything is meant to be portrayed as realistic but they are teaching Americans how to kill themselves. Couldn't another team have come and helped ? Enjoyed the episode but it asks several questions thats for sure!moreless
  • A gas attack takes on the team.

    6.0
    Oh dear. Chlorine gas leaking through the water system, poisoning an entire community. Discovered through dead birds (although quite how a high flying bird would succumb to this ground hogging gas before any ill effects on any human at ground level escapes me), it soon appears that every type of tap or water outlet dispenses chlorine gas from a local water works. Totally unbelievable (even for a TV show), one of the worst episodes in a long time.



    Plus how the hell in this uber secret team tracked down again and attacked?! Once is bad luck, twice is sheer incompetence!



    Bah!moreless
  • One of the better episodes for a while.

    9.5
    The team are trapped when a deadly gas is released into the air through the water and sprinkler system, Jonas, Mack, Bob, Charles and new boy Sam along with family and loved one's are trapped in their homes, school and mission control. Naturally is edge of the seat viewing all the way with the team going after the terrorists involved, taking them down and saving the day, but now the team must move on as Col Ryan thinks there cover has been blown.



    Like I said in my eyes this was one of the better episodes we've had for a while.moreless
  • A poisonous gas is released into the air.

    8.4
    I understand that my reviews for The Unit's past few episodes have been quite scathing, but frankly when you know a show is capable of episodes like this, the bar is set so high that I have been accustomed to quality.



    This was a really good episode that gave all the main characters, including the new fake Michael C. Hall dude, plenty of screen time. Tiffy actually sounded like a real teacher, which is both a compliment to Abby Brammell's acting and this show's writing. The whole classroom metaphor for it being like the Articles of Confederation was well-done and it reminded me of the school shooting episode of One Tree Hill.



    Did anybody else notice how Molly was almost never holding her mouth? Did she get in a fight with David Mamet prior to the filming or something? Come on Regina Taylor, you're better than that.moreless

    • Jonas: Well, the boy that stood on the burning deck? That'd be us.

      Referencing the 19th century poem "Casabianca," by Felicia Dorothea Hemens. The lines relate a tale from the Battle of the Nile during Napoleon's rise to power, when a captain's son refused to leave his post without orders from his father, who had died below deck.
