The Unit is one of the best realistic shows on film today. Having served for over 24 years on active duty service I can relate. It's really a good film series to add to your collection. Read More

Dennis Haysbert (24), Scott Foley (HOUSE, M.D., SCRUBS), and Abby Brammell (SIX FEET UNDER) co-star.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review A manly show about super-secret Special Forces officers and the women who love them, this muscular hour is neither the recruiting film it initially appears to be nor the gruff look at soldiering that might have been anticipated given its production auspices. Foremost, "The Unit" plays like "Mission: Impossible" for the war-on-terror age, with the humanizing twist of simultaneously focusing on military wives who sweat out each mission at home, relying on each other for emotional support..."The Unit" is also elevated by its personnel, who are impressively cast from top to bottom -- beginning with Haysbert, nicely handling his demotion from commander in chief on "24" to field commander here; and a steely Robert Patrick as his office-bound boss...Based on a book by retired Command Sgt. Maj. Eric L. Haney, the series doesn't break new ground, but it's a notch above CBS' procedural crime formula...
