The second season was nearly as good. The season end episode had me on the edge of my seat....but at the same time wondering how the series could continue with the corner they had been written into.
The third season opening episode answers the questions of the second season finale and reunites the unit....although one would have to suspend bits of reality to swallow the outcome. The rest of season three seems to play more like a soap opera than a drama about an elite military team. The writing and story lines were much weaker than the first two seasons.
I'm still a fan....but for me to continue to watch the series it will have to return to it's roots of the first and second season.
Truthfully, this show is so good, you forget you are watching a television series and not just a nice long movie. You care about the characters, you are riveted by the scripts and left craving for many more episodes when you are done.
Imagine strong men who speak multiple languages, can converse on any subject, don't use obscenities, and aren't afraid to be gentle when necessary. Then imagine the women in their lives who give as much as their soldiers. Women who are strong and caring. Then combine them with true to live plots and filming so good it is unexpected in a television show. Imagine all that and you have the unit.
I wish any station would pick them up again. They would add thousands of new viewers, my family at the forefront. Wish I could give it 20 stars.
It's nice to sit down and watch a show about the military that is - for the most part - a realistic representation. No full auto spray and pray by the Unit members; rehearsed, well choreographed firefights; accurate weaponry and usage; and fairly believable stories. As for the Colonel endangering his career for a woman, well, if you don't think people do stupid things like that in real life, you just haven't lived long enough to see it. Also, on Jonas taking out 6 armed men with a knife: I've taken on 3 men - unarmed - and come out none the worse for wear, and I was just a lowly bar bouncer. If I can do that, I can truly believe that a fully trained Special Forces Operator can do what Jonas did.
The Unit: Season 3 only loses one star for the following reasons: The new theme song sucks, the old one was much more appropriate (even if it was from the Marines in an Army show); the season is very short (Writer's strike); and MAN that new theme song really sucks. Did I mention that already? Sorry.
If you're a fan of Military movies or shows, you can do no better than The Unit.

It was a little disappointing when we reached the last episode in that there was no "conclusion". Read more
I am ex-military. Yes, this is "entertainment" and that is understood. Based on the book. Well known techniques, nothing earth shaking. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Beerfarm
