And theres a good reason, according to the shows other creator, Shawn Ryan, the man behind The Shield.
He says the show has researched the lives of real servicemen and, as he puts it, The way these guys speak is so interesting that we dont need to sprinkle profanity through it.
The Unit is one of the seasons biggest new shows and Ryan figures its because, unlike other military dramas, it strives to include a feminine touch.
In his words, A lot of our research was based on what the female wives go through. You wouldnt think the wives of the people defending our country would have to worry about paying their electricity bill.
The Unit, which stars Dennis Haysbert and Scott Foley, airs Tuesdays on CBS.
