"The Unit"


I normally don't have much to say in praise of CBS, but maybe they got one right. Tonight is the premiere of a new series called "The Unit", which revolves around the work and lives of a team of Special Forces soldiers who perform missions around the globe. Knowing CBS and having seen the commercial, I have to admit I am already a little unhappy with the emphasis on sex in a show which is about trustworthiness and combat, but the cast appears to be good and the basic premise offers a lot of potential. Sure, they could screw this up the way they did "The Agency", but if they get it right, CBS might actually have a show that's tougher and smarter than "24". And no, I never thought that would be a possibility for CBS in the near future.

Here's hoping the premiere lives up to its promise.
