  • This was painful to watch. The camera work was lousy. The camera shook so badly I couldn't make anything out. Is this how they make up for a poor plot? Do you think people like this would be scared off so fast? Ever been diving in the dark?moreless

    This episode looked like it was done in the middle of an earthquake. This was so bad the commercials were a relief to watch. All those close ups (zoom in and out), what's up with that? This must be to compensate for the lack of good sets and back drops.



    The idea they are going to go around and make threats, to people like that, and have them back off in 'fear' and stop their operation - is just plain stupid (unbelievable). They are diving, at night, and have the same visibility you would have under a street light in a parking lot? Oh please.



    I'll be watch, for a while. But if this is turning into more 'cheap junk' TV, I'll be moving on. I was hopeful that the whole 'Tiffy' soap opera thing was over, and a return to some action and intrigue was going to take place. Not so sure now.



    I think they need to fire the writers and find some that are up to the task. These writers should go back to writing for soap operas – stick to what you are good at. The director, should go back to his grade school video class. Maybe, when he has learned how to use cameras, he can give it another try. Failing this, The Unit is on the down hill side of its life. To bad. Not many good shows on anymore, this one had promises.moreless
  • Disappointing Episode….

    7.0
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but should not a cliffhanger ending be... exciting? Thrilling? Making you jump from joy over the supposedly clever ending?



    This is the first time I've seen a REALLY horrible attempt to either write characters out of a show, or to refuel the energy that made a show good. Or perhaps all the writers had a block when this cliffhanger was dreamt up. It was an hour of: tying up loose ends that was not really loose; of confusing plot twists that was not fleshed out, nor dipped into more than thimble deep; of disappointing conclusions all together.



    Do I think the episode was horrible? As a cliffhanger ending – definitely! As a character write-off episode – not so much. I was just hoping for something that was not going to hit the low mark of the season starting episode.moreless
  • FANTASTIC

    This program is the best program on TV at this time. I would have to rank THE UNIT above 24, West Wing, and all of the CSI Programs to date. Things like this really happen in real life and sections of governmental leadership refrain from admitting that fact. I truely wish this program was on more than it was. Have to wait all week to see one hour filled with commercials. There should be another evening when either the same program appears or a repeat of a previous showing. Some of us might have to work second shift and miss the program. We definitely need more programs aired of the UNIT.moreless

    Jonas and the team reunites back in the states after a long separation. Jonas CIA associate reveals something to him that explains some of the things that caused the team to go on the run. Bob figures out that his life might also be in danger after the CIA sent others to his location. This episode is filled up with suspense and a decent amount of close quarter battles. It's an exciting episode. It pushes the show much higher than previous seasons. The writers made this show look believable and enjoyable at the same time. I can't wait for the next episode.moreless
  • Unit is back finally!

    7.2
    Shows how bad that the CIA is doing its best to discredit the Unit as well as ruin the men's reputations and families. While Bob works behind the scenes. Molly & Kim, who has since, grown as a shy mom to a mature leader, are trying to keep the CIA off the wives. Hector and Mack are in a prison. Trying to survive. All the men want are the Unit back as well as their reputations. That's all and nothing more. Col Ryan also is having marriage problems with Charlotte. He tells her in the end, it is over and done. As the men finally get back. Mack & Tiffy, you can tell, are over. For the time being.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Charles: And no sign of Mack?
      Hector: Not since we split up.
      Tom: Wherever he's being held we gotta get him out before he breaks.
      Jonas: Breaks? That boy ain't even gonna bend.

    • Charles: Bob and me went to your drop site for the mission orders. Almost got our asses hauled in by some Agency types.
      Tom: You want a chit, go see the padre.
      Charles: Did you set us up?
      Tom: Forgotten how to say "sir"?
      Charles: Did you see this set us up, sir?

    • Jonas: They worked you over pretty good.
      Mack: Another day in the Army.

    • Hector: That's the Liberty Veil - matches Bob's intel. She sails under Liberian flag, ownership's murky.
      Jonas: You alright?
      Hector: Those pallets they're loading look like breadfruit and bananas, not dead bodies.
      Jonas: Check out the security - that's a lot of protection for fruit salad.

    • (The front door opens behind them and the men pull their guns, pointing at the woman in the doorway)
      Neighbor: (Nervously) I was looking for Jerome.
      Hector: I don't think he lives here anymore, ma'am. This is a police operation.
      Neighbor: Okay. (Leaves hurriedly)
      Jonas: (To the room at large) Might want to lock the door now?

    • (Looking at a sheaf of papers)
      Hector: You want me to read this to the committee?

    • (Holding a gun to the back of Kern's head)
      Bob: Sit down, why don't you?
      Agent Kern: Bob Brown. I should have known.
      Bob: And I thought you were going to respect me in the morning.

    • Charlotte: What about us? What about London?
      Tom: Can't stand the rain, baby.

    • Agent Lee: You're out of your league, give it up.
      Bob: Is it the Pentagon, the White House?
      Agent Lee: Real power isn't concerned with the Oval Office, Bob; it rents the Oval Office out.

    • Jonas: Okay. The first one to tell who they work for gets to keep his knees!

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Jonas gives Kim a message to give to Molly, which is "To lose thee, were to lose thyself." Which Molly states is from Paradise Lost; A religious poem by John Milton from the 17th Century describing the fall of man. This was also the title of the season finale of Season 2. This book was pre-arranged by Jonas and Molly as the basis for all of their secret communications and is referred to several times in several episodes.
