Trivia

When Tiffy shows Col. Ryan a letter in the beginning of the episode, she refers to it as "Mac's Re-enlistment". The letter is titled "Notice of Re-Enlistment" with the name, GERHARDT, MACDONALD, etc.... The body of the letter however, contains 3 paragraphs of text that basically explain why he needs to get out of going to active duty. The letter says that he is in the delayed entry program, which precedes basic training. It also explains that his mother's arthritic condition has worsened considerably and that he is the oldest of 3 of three children, having two younger brothers, ages 7 and 12, that he has to help his mother with. It also explains that he has changed his career plans and wants to be a graphic artist. See more »

Quotes

Jonas 'Snake Doctor' Blane: [Jonas has discovered the missing money in their account] How do I earn my money? I do not make cornflakes for a living. I earn my money at the risk of my life out there, letting the scum of the earth shoot at me. You *know* that's how I make my living. That's why my bosses pay me... and you wish it away.

Lots Of Things Left Up In The Air
20 January 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Most of these crime or action shows like to leave their viewers hanging....to draw them back the next season. That certainly happens here as I don't know who is coming back and who isn't because several of these guys say they are leaving the Unit. I find that hard to believe any of them are since they are the key characters. (No, as of this writing I have not watched any Season Two episodes.). Anyway, the ending of this show left me frustrated.

I was glad to see "Tiffy" exposed for the adulterer she was, and was nicely told off by Kim. The latter also gave it to the other lead woman, "Molly," for her lies. All that was well-and- good but at the end, within a day all seemed forgotten and forgiven.

As far as the action story, it was pretty good as the Unit went to capture a war criminal from Bosnia. Unfortunately, the corrupt French military man in charge was more concerned about his image in the press than in capturing the bad guy. That came back to cost him dearly and for the Unit to be surprised, big-time, and the end of this episode which has very dramatic ending.

Anyway, all in all - despite the unwanted (by me) soap opera angles in this TV series, it was a very entertaining one and worthy of viewing on a weekly basis.
