The soldiers are charged with some of the U.S. military's top-secret missions, while their families deal with the trials and tribulations of having a loved one with such a unique and dangerous occupation. Dennis Haysbert (24) and Scott Foley (HOUSE, M.D., SCRUBS) co-star. This collection includes every episode from season four, which finds the squad intervening in an assassination plot, tracking down Nazi war criminals, and enduring a terrorist attack on their own homes.

`The Unit' is a very riveting show. You can't help but cheer for the 4 Unit guys. They have the terrorists who are trying to harm America trying to kill them on one side, the snake-in-the-grass Colonel sabotaging them on the other side and their wives are always in danger while they are off saving the country. You can't help but pay attention and care what happens to them. I never doze off or get distracted when I'm watching that show. I guess I should say when I used to watch that show now that it is cancelled. They will probably replace this really interesting show with some reality show where jerks act like jerks.
We'll miss you Snake Doctor, Cool Breeze, Dirt Diver, and Betty Blue. We've looked forward to your show the last four years.
If it genuinely came down to a pure ratings-related decision, then "The Unit's" ratings were actually higher than those of many shows that survived the CBS axe. Plus, offering the show increasingly poor time slots as the seasons wore on naturally led to the season to season ratings decline, which CBS has pointed out prominently in justifying its decision not to renew "The Unit." So, what ended up killing "The Unit"? Political correctness? A yearning for safe, formulaic, lowest common denominator programs at CBS? Liberal-minded network programming executives? The fact that it is not one of CBS's own in-house productions, as are the CSIs and NCISs of the world?
How many ways can a crime scene investigation team use a blue light or a neat piece of equipment to find the key previously overlooked clue that breaks open a case? In how many settings can the same story be told with different clues but the same result? (Typically, the white male turns out to be the bad guy. And, if there's more than one, then typically the wealthier of the two is discovered to be the bad guy.) Tune in to CBS and find out. I, on the other hand, will be taking refuge from the mind-numbing shows that dominate network television via my DVD player instead. And, among the most prominently re-viewed DVDs will be Seasons 1-4 of "The Unit." So long, Snake Doctor, Cool Breeze, Dirt Diver, Betty Blue, et. al. It was a heck of a ride!
My life has become more and more busy in recent years so I have at times had to cut it down to only one show that I could keep up with. When this choice came up there was never really any choice; The Unit. It is very sad to see the series end like this, with so many more stories to tell. We had season 3 cut short due to the writer's strike and now we find out that the guys will not return for season 5 despite the fact that season 4 leaves many unanswered questions on the table; will Jonas be able to save his marriage and still fight for his country? Will Charlie find happiness with Joss? Will Mack & Tiffy finally be able to work things out together? Will Col. Ryan end his tour of duty and take a quiet retirement (or a life in politics)? Will Bob be able to truly bounce back from his drug addiction and be the best that he can be once again?
I guess we'll never know. That is, unless somebody realizes what a gem The Unit truly is and picks it up, dusts it off, and gets back in there with Snake Doctor and his boys! Fire it up!
My hat is off to the producers and stars of this tremendous series as well as the real guys in the field that this show portrays! We owe you gentlemen a debt that we cannot repay. Thank you!
Nothing is resolved: one soldier is married, another sees his marriage dissolve. Life and their missions will continue and there will be heroics and there will be compromises. I would have loved to have seen more of these missions, but if they had to end, this was as good a place and time for them to end.
