Watching “The Unit”

While my wife has been away in the Czech Republic, I’ve been viewing a DVD box set loaned to me by my son. It’s the first season of an American series that I’d not heard of before “The Unit”. I’ve now watched all 13 episodes in the first season.
Based on show producer Eric Haney’s book, “Inside Delta Force: The Story of America’s Elite Counterterrorist Unit”, “The Unit” was created for television and executive produced by David Mamet and Shawn Ryan. It is unusual in combining in each episode a counter-terrorism operation in various parts of the world with narrative involving the wives back at the base.
The lead character Sergeant Major Jonas Blane is played by Dennis Haysbert whom I saw as the US President in the early seasons of “24”.
I’ve rather enjoyed it “The Unit”.
