Overview

Created by playwright David Mamet, the 60-minute action series The Unit dramatized the exploits of the Rangers, an elite team of top-secret military special ops. Fresh from his star-making stint on 24, Dennis Haysbert headed the cast as the unit's leader, Jonas Blane. His colleagues included brash, brazen, anti-authoritarian new recruit Bob Brown (Scott Foley), his superior officer Col. Tom Ryan (Robert Patrick), and veteran Mack Gerhardt (Max Martini), who at the beginning of the series was on the verge of burning out. The various covert missions undertaken by the unit were counterbalanced by the members' domestic problems, as personified by Jonas' long-suffering spouse, Molly (Regina Taylor), and Bob Brown's pregnant, volatile wife, Kim (Audrey Marie Anderson). Also, in a plot twist unparalleled in the annals of TV combat series, Blane was carrying on an affair with, Tiffy (Abby Brammell), the wife of his comrade-in-arms Gerhardt. Based on a book by retired special-ops officer Eric L. Haney, The Unit debuted March 8, 2006.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Jointly created by The Shield's Shawn Ryan and celebrated playwright-filmmaker David Mamet, this suspenseful drama chronicles the adventures of a covert U.S. Special Forces team assigned to complicated missions all across the globe. The pilot introduces team leader Jonas Blane (Dennis Haybert) and newly assigned member Bob Brown (Scott Foley), who has a baptism by fire when the unit is ordered to rescue a planeload of prominent European businessmen kidnapped by terrorists. In concept, The Unit is not unlike the old Mission: Impossible, as Blane and his team members are frequently detailed to complete tasks without leaving any clue as to their involvement. In one particularly suspenseful episode, "Non-Permissive Environment," the unit goes to Spain to assassinate a terrorist, only to have government bureaucrats terminate the mission in midstream and withdraw support of Blane and his men. The 13 Season 1 shows involve considerable globe-trotting, although one of the most gripping installments, "Morale, Welfare, and Recreation," revolves partially around the possible installation of a nuclear bomb in an Atlanta bank. Providing solid support for Haysbert and Foley are Michael Irby (as team member Charles Grey), Robert Patrick (as Colonel Tim Ryan), and Regina Taylor (as Blane's wife, Molly), among others.

Excellent show. My husband and I love this show It's the only show that I like to watch on t.v. Down side the music theme for this year was changed. I really miss the original one. Love the covert intelligent stories.

Based off book "Inside Delta Force" which is a nonfictional which accounts experiences from a counter terrorists military unit. I love shows that keep me guessing every moment that goes by. I love to question each move they make and have it explained after they make a move or a decision. Very suspensful moments as well as very touching moments this show has it all. Actors are great and story is awesome. Highly recommend.
