It was awesome watching both 24 and The Unit all in one night. I just wish my cigars had been better, which was surprising since I smoked a Arturo Fuente and a Rocky Patel.
The Unit has got it all: gun fights between good guys and bad guys, intrigue at home, death at every corner. This is a truly dramatic television show because, unlike other “dramas,” a main character might actually get killed in combat and missions might not get completed like the good guys want.
But that’s what is so great about this show; there’s a ton of tension. There’s tension on each mission, tension between husband and wife, mother and daughter, between shooters and their colonel, soldier and politician, even between team members themselves. No story line stands still on this show and everything inevitably goes off in some totally unforeseen direction.
If you haven’t watched this show before you need to give it a try. Watch a couple of episodes and, if you are liking what you are seeing (and I can’t see how you couldn’t like this show), rent the previous seasons as well.
What makes this show a great show for cigar smokers is that the lead character, Dennis Haysbert, is an avid cigar smoker. He has even been able to sneak our shared pastime past the network censors and onto a couple of the episodes.
This is an action-packed thriller of a show that actually has good guys and bad guys. Give it a shot and watch it a couple times.
