The Unit - Seasons 1-3
Top Customer Reviews
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.
Thanks Amazon for such a great price!
Every episode there's a new mission, new struggle. The story of the army base flow continuously. Most recognizable one is the triangle between Tom, Mack and Tiffy. There're just many things going on with the wives.
I love many of the stunts that were done in season 2. It's undoubtedly my favorite episode among all. It's also the only full season as well. You'd expect to see the Unit team role play using many cover names and identities. That's also an excellent way to show the leading and supporting actors' skills. Plenty of explosion in season 2, that's what i like about this show.
Trust me this show is fun and exciting, give it a try!

The sound is not matched to the video. Video skips and is blank at times. The DVD for the second season will not play on my PS3 due to a formatting issue. Read morePublished on July 19, 2009 by Ty
