I hadn't watched the show while it was airing, but recently started watching reruns on the weekends and got hooked! This has been one of my best entertainment purchases EVER! I decided I wanted this as my Mother's Day present :) My husband and I aren't content watching just one - we end up watching three or four episodes at a time.
We could both due without so much of the "wives storyline" but its worth enduring for the show :)The wives storyline also shows what the FAMILIES give up and sacrifice having their loved ones serving our country.
So many of the episodes make you feel like you are watching a great action movie - and the good news is it can keep going, and going and going :)The acting is incredible and the intensity of it is just awesome! Its one of those shows you watch and the next day you don't stop thinking about.
I have always had a reverence and appreciation for those who have served our country and this is a great reminder that so many are protecting and saving us - without us even knowing. Its also a good reminder that you shouldn't do hard work in order to gain praise and acknowledgement. These men represent those who serve our country without being honored or thanked by us. Its a good thing to remember in raising our kids - its always important to do the right thing, even if its not recognized.
The thing that I cannot get over is that the show was cancelled. I got through the entire series in two week and you have no idea how sad it makes me that its never going beyond what I have watched. Some things don't get resolved in the last season but it ended the only way it could I guess when they cut it short.
BRING IT BACK!!!!
CALLED UP...CALLED UP...CALLED UP...CALLED UP...27...27...CALLED UP!!!!! THE UNIT RULES!!!! Just the Theme Song alone gets Hubby & me FIRED UP! The Unit will NEVER disappoint. From the 1st episode you will be HOOKED. Excellent story-lines, non-stop ACTION, & a top-notch cast delievering some of the most realistic military action you'll ever see in a T.V. series! Spending time renting all the seasons were not enough, we just had to own the entire collection! If all of what I stated has you curious &/or hyped up, don't tease yourself with one season. OWN THIS COMPLETE SET! Yes Ma'am!!!!
We only became aware of this series after it had run its course. We saw some episodes in re-run, and liked the show... a lot! Probably not for everyone, and like some have stated in reviews, the fourth season wasn't as consistent as the first three seasons. However, if you like well written, acted, and directed warrior stories, I can think of few that top this series. Highly recommended. Thank you.
I do not have the discs yet for any of "The Unit" series but I have DVRd 50 of the 69 programs. Only thing that keeps it at 4 stars instead of 5 for me is the "housewifey" portions.
Nice thing about DVRing is when you copy them, you can eliminate the commercials and the "housewifey at home" crap.
As someone else mentioned, how this program ever got cancelled is beyond me. It may be a touch outdated but "The Unit" and "24" still rank at the top of my gotta watch programs. (24 I have all the sets).
Entertaining series regarding life in a specific special forces unit in the army. If you enjoyed Over There on DVD, Band of Brothers or Friday Night Lights, this may be a good purchase for you. Similar to Friday Night Lights in the behind the scenes family drama that exists in the story lines.
