Killing Osama bin Laden and David Mamet's Special Ops Drama, 'The Unit'

Viewing the world through a haze of vaguely remembered TV shows, tough-guy dialogue and TV jingles, the news about Osama bin Laden’s death quickly turned thoughts to The Unit, the TV series created by once-great writer David Mamet.

The Unit

The Unit is not about deserving. It's about the veneer of moral order.

The Unit

The Unit doesn't include you in the parameters of the performance. You have to figure yourself who's lying to whom and when it matters.

The Unit

This is what The Unit gets right: while the men's violence can fix any given crisis, domestic effects are perpetual.

The Unit

This is always the question in The Unit and the Unit: who knows? Even those who do know can't admit it.

The Unit

It's a show about the Army's clandestine counter-terrorist unit, called The Unit and created by David Mamet. What more do you need to know?
