Roll call ... who here watches the Unit?
I’ve always loved the Unit, but the last episode of the last season kicked it up one helluva notch, and the first three episodes this season have been fantastic.
You know how 24 can kick up the suspense over and over? Well, The Unit is like that, except one doesn’t need to worry about laughing at credibility holes, or having to manually place one’s disbelief on a shelf.
It’s "based on" the nonfiction book, Inside the Delta Force. The Unit is an elite special forces covert unit that receives its missions from the president (who is never seen, heard, talked about, unlike 24). Not only do we get the action and suspense, but we get to follow the lives of the women they leave at home to wait, worry, and raise the kids. (Kinda sexist, but ... realistic.)
It plays Tuesday nights on CBS at 9:00 pm. Do you watch it? If you don’t, and you like 24, you just might like this better ... I’ve never laughed at The Unit, unlike 24, LOL ...
