Trivia

In the Image Comics comic book series titled "The Activity" by Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads, The Unit character of Mack Gerhardt is alluded to / paid homage to in issue #12 titled "Higher Ground." In the issue a special operations team, alluded to later in the issue as Delta Force, are making their way toward their mission in Fallujah. One of the team members is referred to by name as "Gerhardt." Later in the issue the team's individual call signs are named, and one of the call signs is "Dirt Diver." "Dirt Diver" is used numerous times as the designated call sign of Master Sergeant Mack Gerhardt in The Unit. See more »

Goofs

It's clear (probably due to series low budget) that many of the scenes, including those supposedly filmed on the base located in an unnamed Midwestern state, are actually shot in Southern California.

This is especially noticeable during scenes which reflect changes in seasons and which show hills covered in the dried brown grasslands common in Central and Southern California. See more »

Please enjoy the show
15 May 2007 | by nalrudSee all my reviews

I might not be the expert on Special Forces but I do have some military experience. The show is a situational show not a documentary so the authors tried and in my opinion succeeded in illuminating some sides of this mostly secretive part of the military. Some situational mistakes are laughable (black man in Belorussia would stand out as the palm tree in the Antarctica) and language accents are horrific at times but at the end the show is highly watchable and propagates the thought that in real situation members of the real Unit will be up to the task. I think the effort of the cast on portraying the military should be respected and military consultants on the show are respected and well know men. It was enormously satisfying to see the show of this caliber on regular TV. I am looking forward to the 3rd season
