This week, Jenna shares her own guilty pleasure with the Pink Heart Society family. As research she thought she could watch just one episode of a military show. But one is never enough. Check out the Men of 'The Unit' and you'll see why...
My husband cannot fathom why I am so in love with the show. Eye candy aside, they have guns and routinely blow stuff up. Not my typical make-me-laugh fare. But, the characterisation is so spot on, as a writer I am in awe of how tightly they keep the reins on these characters. Plus, since it is a weekly show, and not a soap opera (they best not change that!), the guns fire and explosions happen, but my beloved heroes stay in one piece.
The stories are different every week. I never know which continent they'll be on, what kind of clothes they'll be wearing. Jeans, fatigues, suits...they do it all. Go ahead, next time the show airs, curl up with your sweetie on the couch and enjoy it together, for completely different reasons.
Reason #1 :: Scott Foley
We've known Scott as a cutie since his days on Dawson's Creek & Felicity. He was hilarious on Scrubs. That humor is under wraps here...but he still looks great in jeans. As the most junior member of The Unit, he seems to get beaten up an awful lot, but thanks to the miracle of television he has no noticible scarring - even from bullet holes.
Reason #2 :: Dennis Haysbert
Now that his run as President on 24 is over, he's taking names as the leader of The Unit. He's the one who gets to be funny and sting the others with one lines. That, and keep them all alive. One of my favorite things about his character is how he lets his wife lead at home.
Reason #3 :: Micheal Irby
The Latin contingent of the cast is usually the voice of reason. In the middle of the group leaders and the younger guys, he acts the role of peacemaker and provides a nice foil for the guys dealing with personal issues. They've yet to give him a romance interest...I think. I've only been watching since October.
Reason #4 :: Max Martini
I'll admit, up until his recent faux pas, he was my reason for watching. There is a barely controlled fire about his character that draws me in.
Enjoy! XOXOXO -- Jenna
