So if you happened to enjoy Season One, it's probably best to stop watching at the end of Season Three, because Season Four makes it really obvious why there was no Season Five.
David Mamet is to be commended for his efforts in this series. I recommend on Amazon his book: "The Secret Knowledge," published in 2011. It is a book that Victor Davis Hanson has said is "...a moving lyrical good-bye to the contemporary Left in its 'all-too-well-known manifestations' and '...readers will delight in the fascinating ways...'" he documents his case.
I'd love for this show, or one like it to return - but focus on the missions performed by our SpecOps forces. Perhaps a theme of "JSOC" (Joint Special Operations Command) - where they could include Army, Navy, Marine, and Air Force special operators in various missions. And then focus very little on incorporating their families into 'missions', and instead highlight the fear, hardship and pride associated with military families (spouses worrying, children missing parents, team members missing families, excitement when they come home, being able to afford things on low-pay, etc.).
Also, someone needs to turn the theme music into a full work. It is really awesome!
The Unit has always told a strong story in each episode. Some series become predictable early on, but that never happened here. Stories continued to surprise, characters continued to develop. I'm old enough that I don't feel attached to fictitious characters, yet those in The Unit pulled me in. I occasionally found myself facing a challenge at work asking "What would Snake Doc do?". As strong as the storyline is, the characters made this series. Exceptional.
Like others, I am dissatisfied to see the series end. Many story lines are unresolved, and there is obviously still gas in the tank for more episodes. I'm a middle-aged guy who has finally earned some disposable income that doesn't jingle in my pocket, yet modern marketing deems me irrelevant. I don't watch so-called reality shows (not my reality BTW) where nearly-naked nit-wits generally make buffoons of themselves. I don't know the people who do watch them. But to watch TV today, they are both loaded and easy to separate from their loot.
I'm not sure what it takes in TV-Land to make a show financially successful. In my world, the successful show is the one I'll stay up past midnight to watch, even when I have to be to work early the next morning. The successful show is the one that I think about for a couple of days, not a couple of seconds, after watching it. The successful show is the one I wait for anxiously each week. The successful show is the one I will miss when some TV executive nit-wit (who would fit perfectly into his own reality TV) cancels it. In other words, this show. Get it.

Other disks were so greasy that, even washed and cleaned, were virtually unwatchable. If these were new disks, they were packed by people after a pizza lunch.
To say I was disgruntled would be a massive understatement. I WILL NEVER BUY FROM THIS VENDOR AGAIN.
5 stars for choice of actors, realism , stunts, quality and plot !
