Why oh why are there not more people leaving comments on this great show ? The acting is first class , the characters stories are endearing.This first episode from season 4 did not let us down , it
just makes us realise how long we have had to wait for the programmes return.I hope that this show gets more viewers to keep it alive , too much useless reality programming.Give us quality drama , that we can relate too !!!!
Can't wait to see where the story takes us next but I get the feeling that season 4 will be better then season 3 because the writers are back on the same page without any distractions.
The Unit is a covert Special Forces team that does not exist. Their cover is the 303rd logistical studies group. They are assigned covert military operations by the President and never get credit for their actions. Their wives are also a tight group protecting their husbands. They protect their husband's secrets and maintain their cover.
Looks like an interesting militar drama about the lives of the soldiers on the batlefield and the wives on the home front "Army Wives" plase its the same thing but focused more on the home front
The Unit im waiting for Season 4 to start i hope to be good as the first 3 Seasons
This is a truely good show with only one flaw... MOLLY BLANE. I hate her, she has to be the biggest most interfering woman in the whole world..nay...the universe. She does my head in and takes the edge off an otherwise great programme. All she does is interfere and stick her nose in an ultimately ruins everything.. like loosing $40,000, some of which wasn't hers. KILL HER OFF!!!! Make it hurt. If that seems extreme then just make her more tolerable, maybe just give give her one or two lines per episode. The other wives are fine! And VERY VERY HOT! Others must agree?? I can't be alone
One of the more Mature and Realistic Dramas on tv today. Each episode is another trend setter in the modern day reality of world problems. The wives are fantastic and true to their man, God, country, and Army. This program is definitely a keeper.
When The Unit first started a buddy of mine telephoned me and said to watch this certain program/date/time/channel. I enjoyed it the first time and was hooked for every episode. There is a code of honor, support, dedication, loyalty, patriotism, and the comradery that I will give my life to save you so that we may fight another day. This program lets the viewing public know and understand that the Unit will support and defend against all enemies both foreign and domestic. They are the top of the elete and with their can do attitude they work hard at what they do and they are good at it. This program, by far, is one of the better prograns that has come along in a long time. I wouldn't be surprized if each episode were a training film for various training support groups. This program is enjoyed and should remain on our viewing channel for quite a while. I have purchased the first two seasons in DVD box sets and look forward to getting season III. I can only hope that seasons 4 through 10 are just as good. Keep up the good work.
This is absolutely the most well written, thought-provoking shows on television. Superb acting by each and every member of the entire cast. Twist and turns in every episode. I just love some of the responses of the team by questions poised by the people who just don't "need to know". Like when Jonas was asked by a cop, "What business was it of his"? Jonas replied, "Undetermined".
I also particularly like the perspective of the "home front". So much goes on behind the scenes that most folks a totally unaware of. This brings some of it to light.
Can't wait for the season to get started again and on a regular night. I like the Sunday night time slot.
One of my personal Favorites that I have seen.... Enjoyable to watch and I think it could be great for most to watch, it's not all guns blazing also things to think about..... Would like to see more many more.
Great start off, action and makes you think and anticipate what will happen next. I like how they slot on to one another like one very very long movies that you cant stop watching till the end. Season 1 got me hooked big time. Season 2 was good but it did not have all that the first one had, exceptions on a few.... Season 3 started getting better and had lots of reviews to see the whole thing fall in to place at the end.... Please bring some more Seasons back for those that where captivated by it. will be waiting in anticipation for what could happen....
The Unit is a covert special forces team, that undertake black ops mainly, meaning that they are denieable and untraceable even though they have been sanctioned to be undertaken at the government level.
The series mainly deals with the missions that the members of the unit must undertake, but we also see how their work compacts on their personal lives, how their wives and family are key components to their cover story and provide the moral stability that the team members require in order to maintain their sanity but also knowing that their missions are vital in the defence and safety of their country.
Even the base where the unit is stationed, is unaware of their true mission status. So secret, but so vital is the work of the unit, that at times you get caught up in the action and feel part of the plot. Awesome.
I am so upset that The Unit is no longer running. Being that I am a Military wife, I truly enjoyed this show . During my husbands deployment all me and other military wifes did on Tuesday's was watch The Unit and talk about our spouses. This show hit home in so many ways that it kept us going though a very though time in our lifes. I hope that CBS and the cast will think very hard about bringing the show back on in the fall, because it was one of the best shows that they did!
This is one show that is truly going to be missed! I saw Tuesday, that you ran a old show and I was so excited that I called all my girlfreinds to let them know; we hope that this is a sign that the show is on its way backkkkkk! My husband is now on his second deployment so this show would be a great help!
Having read the book by Eric Haney and seen the movie Spartan, starring Val Kilmer, I was really anctious to see the show. And I have'n't missed an episode since it started airing here in The Netherlands. It is just a great show, offering a great inside look in the life of an operator werving in the Delta Force. Great action in every episode, wether it is an explosion by a bomb or the tension between the charactars, it all fits so well. It truly is one of the better military shows I have ever seen on tv. Hopefully a new season will start soon!!
With the two looks into military life, plus the amazing behind the scenes work and action sequences, there is no way you cannot love this show. CBS has to realize that men and women alike really do enjoy this show. Several more seasons at the very least. Also: whoever likes this show should really come and talk to me! We all need to band together and work towards keeping this show. I really hope that the rumors about a new episode in 9 days are true. Every Tuesday I look forward to watching this incredible show and you should too. For any action junkies out there, the weapons on this show are great. Have a look at the Wikipedia article on the Unit: it's very accurate.
We have been faithful viewers of The Unit. Have not seen and response as to wheather the show will return in the Fall. We are hopeful that the show returns. This is the best show on Tuesdays and a good time slot. Cast is perfect and have enjoyed every one
As a faithful viewer both my wife and I are hopeful that the show returns in the Fall. Have been following the show since the beginning. Each and every episode brings a new view to the audience and a different story each week with also being able to go back and forth with family. The characters are all in a perfect role and each one contributes to the storyline. We wonder what will happen next week wiht each character. The settings and situations are very realistic and the story line is believable each week. Have enjoyed the show and want it to return. Leo and Maria Moya
it needs to come back as soon as possiable. I have watched every epesoide and will continue to watch them. i have bought the season passes for the unit on Itunes and have the 1st and 2nd season on DVD. so i need my fixing of the Unit!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have continualy watched the Unit ever since it has been on. I love the show. It gives me insparation since i am in the military. and i love the action that it has. all though i am kinda sad that they killed one of the Unit members. and i am just waiting to see who will replace him.
So, does anyone know anything about the rest of the season? This season was the best by far. I hope the network doesnt kick it to the side. Its the best show on TV now. I really hate this 100 word minimum, I cant really think of that much to say. I just want to know if the show is coming back or is gone for ever. If it is gone forever I will never watch another show on CBS. Seriously, all the drama at home isnt any good, but the drama and action on the missions is awesome. Yay, Im done!
Mixed feelings down here. The military part is very interesting, well played and portrayed, the non-military part (that displays life at the base for wives) is rather uninteresting and pretty boring. I mean, while their husbands are out risking their life, wives are home with money problems, lovers problem and such. Whom could care about that trash? My guess is that the show creator wanted to make something that could attract both men and women, but it's kind of a waste of time really. Anyways with season 3 things get sensibly better and far more interesting (with the exception of the death of one of the coolest character in the serie that we could have done without).
The writing, the acting, the intensity, the depth ... The Unit is absolutely outstanding. One of the greatest issues surrounding much of tv is that the shows can get formulaic. Bad guy of the week, psychic case of the week, who needs to be rescued this week etc. Many television shows with intriguing premises initially will later become bogged down in a loop where each episode looks like the last with a few changes. Easier to write I guess. But not The Unit. Each episode of the The Unit might take us anywhere, the missions about anything or not about a mission at all. Extremely well conceived this show falls among the all time favorites for myself and family. It is one of the few in which we eagerly await each new episode.
At times, the show is simply awesome. At others, it gets boring and ridiculous. I have found that the boring, ridiculous, and dumb times are usually when the episodes focus too much on the situations at home and it really takes away from the main story of the missions. This seems to have changed a bit this season, with more focus on the missions, and the show has been REALLY good. I hope it keeps up when the writers make more episodes. I still can't believe they killed Hector off though! They built him up like he was going to have a big future and then he gets shot in the neck to die.
Okay i have to say that this show is one of the best Military shows on T.V, better than MASH i have to say...sorry to people who are MASH fans...But i have to say that the Unit is an awesome show, it dosen't matter if you are just tuning into the show, it dosen't matter where you start watching, everything is basicly the same, it isn't like "Home and Away" you don't need to wait for the next episode... The Unit is a show more for the guys however there are some parts for the Gals, it isn't all action, and that's what i like about it...it's not none stop action, they have alittle bit of action, then they take a brake...Thats good, and i think that other people would also agree with me there.
a elite and top secret group of soldiers are recruited to stop Military struggles and they have to be secret about it. Their Wives are the only ones that know this secret and they are sworn not to tell. But at some times there is tension between the wives and things get out of hand. But this elite group of men go's on incredible missions and they have Goliath challenges. But all of them are doing something they want to do, They are all keeping peace with terrorists and other threats to Americas safety. I love this show. you should check it.
This is a military show but it is not the standard military show. Its is as much about the relationships between the men and their wives and eachother as it is about the army. I watched this show on and off in the first season, began watching it regularly in the second and became addicted in the thrid. This show is why I found this website as I needed people to talk to about The Unit. If you haven't seen this show you should check it out, it has a good mix of action and drama. I hope this show is around for a long time to come.
My favorite show lost a great character when Hector "Hammerhead" Williams was killed. I know we'll all miss him. It is a tragic consequence of war that loved ones will be lost, inevitably.
Thanks to MovieWeb, though, we got a glimpse into Hector's final day(s) and what Demore Barnes will be up to in the very near future. Demore Barnes talks about the 3rd season and the death of Hector Williams on MovieWeb: http://www.movieweb.com/tv/news/50/24950.php
Check it out. It is definitely worth a few minutes to peruse. Can't wait to see more of Demore coming soon. Let's hope the writers get done with the strike and get back to business!
I'm starting to dislike this show as over and over they portray women as mindless hormone driven idiots who can't fight, be analytical, or get the job done.
I love spy shows, but The Unit is so demeaning to women and its starting to annoy me. Compared to other shows on TV right now, the other shows are much more respectful to women's minds, aspirations and abilities.
Please tone down the attacks on women. The show is showing all the ladies as home makers who ultimately might turn into strip dancers. While I'm here, there's a lot of loose ends on the show too; wasn't the unit exposed and we had a melitia break in and shoot them all? You'ld think the cover is blown, but the writers think we are so naieve as to think the common people never noticed the shooting ablaze and we will still believe the unit are paper pushers.
I love the show. Some of the plots seem unrelaistic but there as close to the truth as one can get from a special ops unit. Being involved with Delta in its conception, I am glad that I can now speak of my involvement. Unlike those guys on the show, we all would like eveyone to know how special we were then. I love the characters in the show, especially Jonas. My wife has fallen head over heels over Bob. She says that the fact that his code name is cool breeze is a true name for him. She also states taht the wives parts are so close to real that it takes her back to the old days. We both loved it when we were special, like the show is to us now.
I am so confused!! Why let Hector began a relationship and let him DIE? Oh NOOO! So now what? Whose gonna tell it on Tiffi? I want Hector back. Did they plan to try and "replace" Hector? I am soo disappointed. Then the preview for next week.. now The Unit seems to be having some problems. How are "they" gonna fix this one? Does Mac really want Tiffi back or is he just scared? Doesn't Hectors' "would-have-been" girlfriend seem a little suspicious? She was already suprised when Tiffi walked in the bar to tell her the news. PLEASE write Hector back in.
I did just did the same thing as "kicooke" after I saw this ep. kicooke Quotes: "It´s odd but I checked IMDB and Demore Barnes currently has no other works in progress. Did he want to get out of the show? Who would leave a sweet gig like the unit. I really love this show." End of Quote.
And now when he had meet an girl and everything seems to work out fine. I thout he was gona have an more present roll in The Unit. And seens it didn´t look like he was going to do an move or some thing els. I supost the writer did deside that he had to go. I´m gona miss him!!!
'The Unit' exposes the essence of the 'real' human cost involved in war and other military-type forces. The realism of the show just adds to its caliber, and although the show has some extreme situations, it just portrays what governments don't want the public to know.
The depiction of the characters by the cast is amazing and the story lines leave the viewers wanting more. In the directors commentary (in season one), writer E.L. Haney comments that he never wanted to turn his fiction into a movie blockbuster, and I'm glad he didn't. It would have taken away from the story line of what he was trying to reveal: the human cost it has on people, their families and their country.
I believe 'The Unit' has set the standard of what real special-ops type programs should be, but have failed to do so!
The show is extremely addictive and I can't wait for the following seasons!
This show just keeps getting better. The latest episode "Five Brothers" was excellent. The shocker at the end was almost eclipsed by the cold blooded killing of a civilian by Bob to stop him giving their position away.
The show has always been a favourite of mine but its always been a bit unrealistic for me. The stories were great but the good guys always win and no one ever does anything too dubious or non politically correct. This seems to have changed recently and I do very much like it. I think its more human when good people do bad things.
the unit is the best show on prime time. i look foward to every tuesday night just to get my unit fix. i do mis the original theme song. but the action is still great. this is the first review as you can tell.that is about all i have to say. just kidding. im sad hector is gone. i hope no others leave. what else can i say. nothing. but i have to have 100 words. so now i am at 81 . i only need a few more. all i want to do is just say how much i love the show......
A show with a great cast and even better stories is ontop in my opinion. This is not an easy task with other great show starting on the rise like Prison Break, CSI, 24, etc. Eric Haney gives the viewers a little taste of what it is like to not only be a member of a special ops unit, but a perspective of how things are on the home front.
I hope this show never ends.
Although I was a dissappointed when Hector Williams dies it did maintained a realistic approach to the show.
Three guys for one stupid american signer. It happens much more tha you think. The media and television fiction show, film and government propoganda makes war look cool. I like the premise of teaching abratty little spoiled twit the true meaning of death in a war zone, but did she learn her lesson?
So what's with Hector getting a girlfriend and why were the wives interveining so soon?? Plot twist: Will Hector bringin a new permanent wife character?? Let's hope so, it's about time he get laid.
What about the Tiffy/Tom/Hector factor: Will Hector tell Mac about what he thinks he saw? Do you think that perhaps Tom was over to offer support to Tiffy or to "support" Tiffy? This is the plot scenario I've been waiting for since we first found out about the affiar! Can't wait to see what happens there!
Oh and the preview for next week has me clearing my Tuesday night!! Stay tuned, Stay touched.
