Easily the best episode thus far in a good series
27 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have watched every episode of The Unit up to this point, and while I have enjoyed this series it hadn't genuinely moved me, until Play 16.

The loss of a brother in arms was illustrated in heartbreaking detail. The reverence with which they handled the body, the solemnity of Gerhardt's vigil, the absolute adherence by his comrades to martial ritual in preparation for the funeral, the brutal reality of the bullet collection, and the sharp echo when Ramirez failed to respond to roll call, are all perfectly crafted moments that bring this show to an entirely new level.

Definitely the jewel of the series.
