Unit Season 3, The
At the end of season 2, we saw how The Unit got disbanded and was put under investigation for several crimes they apparently had committed. Jonas Blane has left the country, Mack and Hector have been taken captive and put into detention, and Bob has been recruited by the CIA to investigate his fellow team members. Things seems like they can’t ever go back to normal but that’s without counting the resilience The Unit has…
Sound and Vision:
We get clear images with plenty of detail and the minor issues we had with season 2 seem to have disappeared. If we get issues like grain, most of the time it’s intentional.
The sound is as usual with this series very good.
Audio commentary tracks, deleted scenes and a roundtable wih the writers. Not really much.
Due to the writer’s strike in Hollywood last year, we only get half of a full season and then you also have to add that the first two episodes are used to end the arc that was started at the end of season 2. Therefore this third “season” is certainly not something that we would recommend to newcomers to the show. Those people should best start with season 1 or 2. For those that already know the backstory, this time we get again some great episodes with plenty of action, interesting storylines and background information on the homefront (the wives). Sometimes even a bit too much on the latter if you ask me.
Season 3 is only half a season and the last episode of the box clearly shows that as there’s no real “ending” this time nor an arc that gets set up. It’s just another episode like the rest and that’s what we have to do with until season 4 appears. Still, certainly worth a shot to await that fourth season.
