Se acabó

Se terminó The Unit. Una de las series que mas me ha enganchado los ultimos 4 años. Mas incluso que Heroes o Criminal Minds.

La cadena CBS, que retransmitia hasta ahora la serie, ha decidido dejar de ofrecer este show como medida de recorte ante la crisis actual, basandose en la baja audiencia obtenida (en los EEUU). Con ella tambien caen algunas series miticas como Sin Rastro (Without a Trace), NCIS por parte de la CBS, y la NBC suprime Medium y Me llamo Earl.

Ya no habrá mas misiones para el equipo encubierto bajo la 303º de Estudios Logisticos. Snake Doctor, Cool Breeze, Dirt Diver, Betty Blue, Wishplash y Red Cap no seguiran salvando al mundo, colgaran sus uniformes y se sentaran a que otra cadena o productora recoja el relevo. Tal vez la NBC, la ABC… existen muchas opciones.

leyendo en la red, di con un articulo sobre la retirada de la serie en Film.com, y en ella dan 5 razones por las cuales la serie deberia seguir emitiendose (en ingles):

  1. There are few scripted shows that parade a banner of nobility and love of country like The Unit. While it doesn’t shrink from controversy, it tells a story that isn’t being explored in a TV landscape that loves dark heroes. House may save your life, but you don’t want to invite him to the neighborhood barbecue. These are good ol’ boys serving their country, and darn proud to do it.

  2. Ratings for the show weren’t horrible, but while the ratings were higher than other CBS shows that were picked up, the audience skewed towards older viewers. The median age was around 55, which might just as well spell dead zone to advertisers. But we contend that this is exactly the group that probably has money to spend right now, and isn’t squirreling away every last cent for fear of getting booted from their jobs.

  3. CBS has become the home of the procedurals. We’ve got ghost whispers — and soon another talkin’-to-dead-people crime fighter. We’ve got crime scene investigations in three different cities, and even a military crime team. And, as is the case with all the networks, you can’t swing a stethoscope without hitting a doctor show. Two of the new CBS series are doctor shows. But what is in short supply around the eye-land is a straight drama like The Unit.

  4. Before Barack Obama, there was President David Palmer, the honorable man who served as our nation’s president. OK, it was just on 24, but Palmer set a tone. So when the actor, Dennis Haysbert, was recruited to head up the team at The Unit, you knew this was a man to be reckoned with. We could use a few more good men like Jonas on TV.

  5. The Unit was written and produced by Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and created and written by respected Tony and Oscar-nominee David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed-the-Plow, American Buffalo). Mamet’s got a distinctive dialogue style. So when you want to brush this off as just a conservative-bent military show, save the dismissive attitude and remember that two of the best dramatic writers around, Ryan and Mamet, helmed The Unit. They served proudly. They never talked down to their audience, and while leaving the door open just in case of a last minute stay of execution, they gave a satisfying season ender to their fans

Solo puedo esperar a que alguna cadena la recupere.. hasat entonces.. siempre nos quedaran las 4 temporadas emitidas y recordar frases  como: “Tu, tu…. y tu, Asustaos. Todos los demas, venid conmigo”, Jonas Blane.
