Big “Unit”


JPod, while I am glad you enjoyed ABC’s Sons and Daughters and their ratings were respectable, the real news of the night was the strong premiere of The Unit, a new show from playwright David Mamet and Shawn Ryan, who created The Shield. I didn’t see it, but the show portrays an elite corps of special forces ops as they fight terrorism. Dennis Haysbert ( 24’s President David Palmer) stars. I can’t comment on the politics of the show until I see it. Is it wishful thinking to maybe hope this one plays it straight up?
