Trivia

The names on the whiteboard on the refrigerator of the team's ready room (where the team indicates the number of beers they owe) are the real names of the cast and crew, not the names of their characters. See more »

Goofs

In an Army unit there would actually been several layers of command between the Colonel (later Brigadier General) and The Unit itself. This would have included at least one Major or Captain and one or more Lieutenants. While the Colonel would have overall operational command at the base level, the junior officers would likely have had more of a direct command and control responsibility for the enlisted personnel.

11 December 2006 | by secyatlawSee all my reviews

What else could a girl ask for! Great special effects; the actors behave like real people and not cardboard cut-outs. Each character has his or her own very human and very real virtues and shortcomings. A great show with a great cast. The show lets the actors explore the ranges of behaviors one person can experience, from the noble to the questionable, all in preserving the integrity of the team's mission/objective.

No Stepford Wives, either; each female lead is showcased with the same range of emotions, goals, and intense level of commitment to their spouses and "The Unit" itself.

Robert Patrick as their CO is a crafty, sage manipulator and, sometimes, a magician, to protect his teams out there in harm's way.

Dennis Haysbert plays the team captain large and in charge.

Scott Foley is the team's rookie, but not without his own survival skills and tactics.
