The Unit is an action-packed drama series that aired on CBS from 2006 to 2009. It follows the lives of a covert team of special forces operatives, known as the Unit, as they undertake dangerous and often clandestine missions around the globe to protect their country and its citizens.

At the heart of the series is the team's leader, Jonas Blane, played by the charismatic Dennis Haysbert. Blane is a tough-as-nails veteran with a wealth of experience in the field, and he is fiercely dedicated to his men and their mission. Alongside him are his wife, Molly (Regina Taylor), who is herself a successful career woman trying to balance her professional duties with her role as a military spouse, and their children.

The rest of the Unit is made up of a diverse group of soldiers, each with their own unique skills and personalities. There's Mack Gerhardt (Max Martini), the tough-as-nails sniper who is always ready to put his life on the line for his teammates; Bob Brown (Scott Foley), the team's second-in-command who often struggles with the moral implications of their missions; Colonel Tom Ryan (Robert Patrick), the no-nonsense leader of the team's support staff; Tiffy Gerhardt (Abby Brammell), Mack's wife and the team's resident expert in communications; Kim Brown (Audrey Marie Anderson), Bob's wife and a skilled intelligence analyst; Hector Williams (Demore Barnes), the team's medic and moral compass; Grey Matter (Michael Irby), a man with a mysterious past who is one of the team's most skilled fighters; and Bridget "Red Cap" Sullivan (Nicole Steinwedell), a young and ambitious recruit who quickly proves herself to be a valuable asset to the team.

Over the course of the series, the Unit takes on a wide range of missions, from rescuing hostages in Iraq to thwarting a terrorist attack on American soil. Each episode is filled with fast-paced action, intense drama, and high-stakes tension as the team works to complete their mission while trying to keep their cover intact.

But the show is not just about the adrenaline-fueled action. It also delves into the personal lives of the team members, exploring the challenges they face as soldiers, parents and spouses. From the strain of long deployments to the emotional toll of being away from loved ones, the show examines the complex realities of military life and the sacrifices that these men and women make every day to protect their country.

The Unit is a compelling, well-written drama that combines heart-stopping action with human drama, making for a truly riveting viewing experience. With a talented cast of actors and tight writing that keeps the story moving at a breakneck pace, this is a show that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

The Unit is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (70 episodes). The series first aired on March 7, 2006.
