I just heard on the radio that they have cancelled `The Unit'. I had thought that CBS had more sense than the other big three, but apparently not.
`The Unit' is a very riveting show. You can't help but cheer for the 4 Unit guys. They have the terrorists who are trying to harm America trying to kill them on one side, the snake-in-the-grass Colonel sabotaging them on the other side and their wives are always in danger while they are off saving the country. You can't help but pay attention and care what happens to them. I never doze off or get distracted when I'm watching that show. I guess I should say when I used to watch that show now that it is cancelled. They will probably replace this really interesting show with some reality show where jerks act like jerks.
We'll miss you Snake Doctor, Cool Breeze, Dirt Diver, and Betty Blue. We've looked forward to your show the last four years.

I also was disappointed that CBS cancelled The Unit; however, I am hopeful that FOX, TNT, A&E or one of the other cable channels will pick it up. I was down to one show per week - The Unit - on the main three networks; now it's none. We still have 24 on FOX, and more and more superior shows are coming out on cable channels. The big three are in a death spiral with their "reality" shows all week. Clueless is the first word that comes to mind when I think of them.

This review is more for The Unit as a series than season 4 in particular. I have been a diehard fan of this series since I watched the first episode. I always felt like this show had the courage to stand up and say things and show things that needed to be said or shown. Now, in the midst of a myriad of terrible shows, they go and cancel the best one on the air. Hmmm...

My life has become more and more busy in recent years so I have at times had to cut it down to only one show that I could keep up with. When this choice came up there was never really any choice; The Unit. It is very sad to see the series end like this, with so many more stories to tell. We had season 3 cut short due to the writer's strike and now we find out that the guys will not return for season 5 despite the fact that season 4 leaves many unanswered questions on the table; will Jonas be able to save his marriage and still fight for his country? Will Charlie find happiness with Joss? Will Mack & Tiffy finally be able to work things out together? Will Col. Ryan end his tour of duty and take a quiet retirement (or a life in politics)? Will Bob be able to truly bounce back from his drug addiction and be the best that he can be once again?

I guess we'll never know. That is, unless somebody realizes what a gem The Unit truly is and picks it up, dusts it off, and gets back in there with Snake Doctor and his boys! Fire it up!

My hat is off to the producers and stars of this tremendous series as well as the real guys in the field that this show portrays! We owe you gentlemen a debt that we cannot repay. Thank you!

"The Unit" was undoubtedly the most thought-provoking, best-written show on television, based upon a fantastic book ("Inside Delta Force," by Eric Haney--Inside Delta Force: The Story of America's Elite Counterterrorist Unit) and featuring an astoundingly talented creative team (Shawn Ryan and David Mamet) and a fantastic ensemble cast. So, the network which features three separate CSI shows--plus two knock-off versions of CSI that involve malfeasance within the U.S. military--couldn't stomach the outright honesty, integrity, authenticity, and patriotism of "The Unit"? Not shocking. However, the manner in which CBS railroaded the show was absolutely deplorable.

If it genuinely came down to a pure ratings-related decision, then "The Unit's" ratings were actually higher than those of many shows that survived the CBS axe. Plus, offering the show increasingly poor time slots as the seasons wore on naturally led to the season to season ratings decline, which CBS has pointed out prominently in justifying its decision not to renew "The Unit." So, what ended up killing "The Unit"? Political correctness? A yearning for safe, formulaic, lowest common denominator programs at CBS? Liberal-minded network programming executives? The fact that it is not one of CBS's own in-house productions, as are the CSIs and NCISs of the world?

How many ways can a crime scene investigation team use a blue light or a neat piece of equipment to find the key previously overlooked clue that breaks open a case? In how many settings can the same story be told with different clues but the same result? (Typically, the white male turns out to be the bad guy.

Well, it was clear pretty early on that CBS had lost faith in The Unit. First, putting it on Sunday nights at 10. How many nights during football season did it not even begin until 10:30 or even closer to 11? Then there were all the times it was preempted for this special or that made-for-TV movie. There was never really any continuity to the series this season: it would be on one week, then you would have to wait two or three weeks for it to appear again, and what you might get even after that was a repeat. There were other hints of a loss of confidence with the series as it had been for the previous three years. The biggest sign was the addition of semi-regular Nicole Stenwedell as new team member Bridget Sullivan (reminiscent of the lengths that old, great series Homicide: Life on the Streets went to to try and bring in a different kind of audience when it started bringing in eye candy like Michael Michelle in its last years). Second was the near invisible input of David Mamet himself. So the demise of this excellent drama is not surprising. Yet the show retained its great integrity, no matter how mundane some of its stories got this season. Stenwedell proved to be a solid addition and served to dramatize the real world conflicts and questions of having women on the front line of war. But most of all, what makes and has always made The Unit worthwhile viewing is the strength of its cast, and in particular its stalwart men, whose heroics are always placed in a morally ambiguous light. And if the show had to end, the last image of it was a fitting way to say goodbye. As one of his men gets married, Jonas -- the great Snake Doctor himself -- sits alone in a pew, left by Molly when he would not chose her and their marriage over the duty -- and yes, excitement -- of the Unit.Read more ›
