Saw the trailer and first what I thought is "Rainbow Six style TV Series?"



From Executive Producers David Mamet and Shawn Ryan, THE UNIT is an action drama that follows a covert team of Special Forces operatives as they risk their lives on undercover missions around the globe, while their families maintain the home front, protecting their husbands’ secrets. Jonas Blane leads the Unit on missions out in the field and is responsible for taking new recruit Bob Brown under his wing. The Unit includes Jonas, Colonel Tom Ryan, Mack Gerhardt, Charles Grey, Hector Williams and Bob Brown, all highly skilled, trustworthy, brave and dependable soldiers whose ability to rely on each other is what creates their brotherhood. Jonas’ wife, Molly, is the base matriarch who comforts and counsels the other wives as they cope with the fear and uncertainty they experience when their husbands leave home. Molly and Tiffy Gerhardt, a wife hiding her own dark secrets, help Bob’s pregnant wife, Kim, acclimate to the stress of her new secret life.

Sweet! Another show I can tivo. Over There and Football(which gets deleted) is pretty much all I have.

Speaking of SF shows. Last night I caught two episodes of "Special Forces: Untold Stories" on the Military Channel(one of my favs). Very cool documentary style with dramatized reinactments.

One was on the Dutch Marines double hostage situation(1970s?), school and train. The other was the GSG9's 1977 raid on the hijacked Lufthansa flight which ended in Mogadishu of all places. Very cool as they were using the latest SAS technology "flashbangs" and their own Mp5Sds. I tivoed the SAS episode which came on at 6am. Gonna watch that tonight. There was a US Green Beret Vietnam one too, but I'd already seen it.

Well, I just watched the premiere of "The Unit" and the first thing that struck me was the "Arabic" they keep trying to implement. First of all they keep mixing languages between Arabic and weird Afghani/Arabic combinations that don't really translate to anything. Whatever Arabic they do actually use is 'broken' and weak; that's almost expected as most North American productions are pretty bad when it comes to non-Western languages. As for the the indecision on using the correct language that's just wrong, and it really ruined the episode for me.

Other than that, the show has good production value, good casting, and it looks like it'll be fun to watch http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hmmmm cant imagne they couldnt have got that right if they didnt want too. Seems to me theyd want to leave that vague as not give the wrong impression they were picking on any one group except the terrorists. Since language interpetation isnt what this shows about. Didnt ruin it for me at all. Alot of good action, though to much "human interest" parts. I thought it was pretty good. Plus it had www.erichaney.com (http://www.erichaney.com) picture on the wall.

Personally, I didn't like it too much. They used pretty much every military, special forces cliche statement in about 30 minutes. Adding to this it ended up being a one man wrecking crew with the other operatives having a midnight snack. With all of the "hush hush, don't say anything about what your husband does" that went on in the show, they weren't shy about showing their faces or pretty much indicating who they were to everyone around them.

Xessive

Yeah I agree, it seemed to suffer a bit of the "Hollywood" effect. But for me since I speak Arabic, it sounded wierd and had a lot of distracting jibberish. There was one particular phrase they focused on "Yalla Hallaa" which almost sounds like "Come on now" in Arabic, but not quite. It's like everyone spoke jibberish except for the one or two actors who actually could speak a bit of Arabic.

I'm gonna wait until the next few episodes are out before I decide whether or not I'll contonue to watch it.

I thought it was pretty cool for the most part. Went by kind of quick and it seemed like a pilot episode or something. Everyone speaking their lines really quickly like they were tyring to cram a lot of stuff in all at once.

I guess if you speak Arabic those parts would be distracting, but for the rest of us, it just goes over our head anyway. I mean, it is an American television show after all about "Delta" or something similar based on the book.

The end kind of bummed me out when it turned into Special Forces 90210. What was up with the Colonel sleeping with his soldier's wife? Then he keeps sending him out on deployment again so he can get some more nooky? That's just low. I know that **** happens when guys go away so much, but your CO and an SF elite unit? C'mon, I really don't want to watch Desperate Housewives of the Special Forces.

I've come to terms with the "By Americans for Americans" principle, it is a TV show afterall.

Yeah, the end got to me too. Is it trying to pull some of the Desperate Housewives/Sex in the City type audience? Still, I'm gonna wait till the show has completed a season (if it does) before I cast my final judgement.

Hmm, makes me think of 24. I only liked the first season, after that it just died for me.

This was also very true when North American productions portrayed Russians or other Eastern Europeans, and is still somewhat true today. Sometimes the Russian grammar spoken was correct but the accent was very American or British, but oftentimes they spoke complete jibberish altogether (though I'm sure that the majority of the TV-viewing audience didn't know that).

After all, I still couldn't for the life of me tell you what Sean Connery's character's first few lines were in The Hunt for Red October, though I could understand what Sam Neill's character's reply was, even though Neill spoke it with a noticable Western accent. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif And the orchestra that sang the Soviet song during the opening credits was definitely American.

I liked the show for the most part, though that ending with the colonel and the mistress kinda seemed a bit tacked on. I'll certainly watch next week's episode.

Though if anyone here was expecting the series to air missions with as much detail as Special Forces movies have, bare in mind that the show runs on a TV-series budget, not a motion-picture budget. Still, at least it was filmed in 16:9 HD, which isn't true of all new shows. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It's a pretty cool show. They're still pumping up the soap opera part though. I don't know if that's to appeal to women or what. Overall it's an interesting show, I enjoy it. This week was more about tension and politics between cia, diplomats, and the "unit." In fact, I don't think any guns were fired.

Good episode tonight. Lots of tension between the Unit and the CIA, as well as between the Colonel and the wives. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

A note about the different languages spoken in this episode: while the U.S. embassy lady early in the episode spoke three lines of Russian (with the fourth line apparently in Farsi) grammatically correct (though with a thick American accent), the subtitle-writer got the second and third Russian lines wrong:


<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">First line:
Subtitle: "Do you know what I'm saying?"
What she actually said: "Do you understand what I'm saying?"

Second line:
Subtitle: "I don't think he understands."
What she actually said: "You're lying."

Third line:
Subtitle: "He doesn't understand."
What she actually said: "I think you're lying." </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

And it wasn't that something got lost in the translation - she clearly spoke completely different lines. I suppose that the CIA (or at least the show's producers) needs to get a new subtitle writer. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The actors who played the Russian ambassadors, on the other hand, actually spoke and sounded like their parts. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

All-in-all, another good episode. It appears that the Unit actually return to the combat zone next week.

While they may have "got it wrong," in your eyes, it was more then likely changed in editing either to make the cuts fit together better or the line easier to understand when read. Or they just changed it because it made more sense. The conversation could have been a lot longer then what we saw. They have more footage then just what we see, and those takes probably worked for the director to get the point across with more then 3/4 none the wiser.

The written subtitles are clearly what they want us to see since they are in english. They don't even need a subtitle writer, whatever the director wants goes there. As for whether she spoke correctly, only a few will know that. My guess is that it all just didn't flow when they put it together, so they picked lines that seemed to fit with the subtitles.

The point is they don't give a "siht" what she says as long as the subtitles say what they want. Things change, maybe it didn't make sense after they watched. I know I was sorta lost for a second when it happened the way it was.

I think this show is severely unbalanced in terms of its pacing and what exactly it is trying to do/say each week and I see them (CBS) giving the producers a lot of "notes" on where to change it depending on how well it does during May Sweeps.

Some of those "notes" have been covered here in they are probably going to have to switch to either a soap opera-style show, or a more action-adventure show given the main focus is on "The Unit". Guess which one is going to win out, most likely? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I understand the point of the show is to give SF Operators a face and make them more human as there is a giant mythos built around these men as they are the modern day equivalent of Mideval Knights and the public only sees them as "bad-*** soldiers"...

BUT, this show, in my opinion, still hasn't really found its voice yet and I guarantee you it is because it is trying to juggle too much at once, or is not executing the things it can juggle very effectively.

The only way I see how they can do what they want to do is they've got to come up with an overall arc which ties in the wives and the Unit together in there is a mole or traitor living at the base. This was hinted at in the second to last episode -- With the stranger talking to the kid -- And I hope they are setting this arc up because this is how to balance life on the homefront with the action-adventure missions they send the men on: Tie them together.

Interesting episodes this week.

The first had Brown foiling an attempt on the visiting U.S. Secretary of State to a newly-democratic African nation, Kim surviiving an attack at the base's radio station and Molly helping a lady out of a real-estate scam, ony to be swindled herself ($40,000 of the wives' real-estate fund).

The second had Keith Soto, son of a former Unit member, threaten to write about the secretive Unit in the New York Times - Jonas decides to tell him the "truth" about how his father was killed under the condition that he promises not to publish the story. Both men keep their word, though what Jonas didn't reveal was that former Unit member Soto ended up being the very "Arańa" guerilla leader that they were sent to kill in Panama in 1999.

Meanwhile, Molly and Tiffy track down the swindler lady, though they're only able to retrieve $15,000 back. Also, Brown gets a "initiated" at the widow's annual "Day of the Dead".

Next week: the show's two-hour season finale, which means that there won't be any new episodes afterward until the fall. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

yea both episodes were very good this week and not for nothing the second episode was based loosely on a real event which occured in eric l. haney's book "inside delta force" except in the book haney actually recounts how he killed a rebel leader who turned out to be a guy he had gone through selection with but washed out.

i'll tell you though i soo wanted molly to come across that table in the diner and slap the **** out of that swindler lady it wasn't funny.

bob's wife kim seems like she's starting to develop feeling for her disc jockey boss or something or maybe i'm being to perceptive lol either way two very good episodes.

Good stuff. Seems to have gone so quick, season is already over : ( I hope it gets picked up next year, since I've become addicted to it.

I wonder if kim brown is going to be killed off next week. Remember reading somewhere(maybe this very thread) something about a mix up in her contract. They do some weird stuff with the wives, that whole dj "look" at the end was a bit fishy to me too king_george.

And the ex military widow swindler thing, LOL, yeah, she should have resorted to violence. We know we all wanted her to lay the smack down on the biatch.

As it turns out, there'll actually be two one-hour episodes to finish off the season rather than one two-hour episode. It'll still be two hours total, though, so don't forget to set the timer on your VCR/DVR/whatever accordingly. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
