The New CBS action drama beggining this week.

I thought i might check this out as it has been getting quite good reviews. Although i am still bitter about the replacing of Amy Acker from the cast as the show went from Pilot to series, Dennis Haybert ( Pres. Palmer on 24) and Scott Foley (Noel Crane on Felecity) are enough to draw me to this show.

From CBS

[quote:184dfa3fb3]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 (Dennis Haysbert) leads the Unit on missions out in the field and is responsible for taking new recruit Bob Brown (Scott Foley) under his wing. The Unit includes Jonas, Colonel Tom Ryan (Robert Patrick), Mack Gerhardt (Max Martini), Charles Grey (Michael Irby), Hector Williams (Demore Barnes) 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 (Regina Taylor), 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 (Abby Brammell), a wife hiding her own dark secrets, help Bob's pregnant wife, Kim (Audrey Marie Anderson), acclimate to the stress of her new secret life.[/quote:184dfa3fb3]

Here is a little snipet form aintitcool.com:

[quote:184dfa3fb3] This thing’s not only got David Mamet - one of the best writers on the planet - penning it, it’s got a cast and a half: Dennis Haysbert (“24”), Robert Patrick (“The X-Files”), Scott Foley (“Felicity”), pretty Audrey Marie Anderson (“Point Pleasant”) and a blonde who looks an awful lot like Ashley “Birds of Prey” Scott. But isn’t.
It’s a show that’s all schizophrenic, and that’s what makes it good. Half of it is like “24,” with super-macho military types cavorting about on dangerous secret missions to foil terrorists. Missions so secret, even other government officials in the field don’t know what they’re up to.
The other half is about their wives, who have to pretend these guys aren’t secret agents. There’s a new girl on base, not a typical military wife, and she’s not too excited about all the New Rules she has to follow and all the Big Secrets she has to keep. As I say, interesting.
The biggest fun, though, is watching Haysbert play Jack Bauer. He’s great at it![/quote:184dfa3fb3]
