Wordless Wednesday: Demore Barnes

I'm a fan of a weekly television show called, The Unit. One of the five warriors on this show is a brother, Hector. Hector's character was falling in love with a white woman. He also saw his commanding officer in a compromising position with another member of The Unit. As a result, I wasn't surprised when that ol' wives tale about the Black guy being the first one killed became real last week. My man, Hector, was killed by a sniper. We wish Demore Barnes the best of luck in his future acting career.

those folks in tv- and movieland really have no imagination, do they? heaven forbid they do something out of a recipe.

I've only watched The Unit a few times... I hate when television shows kill off characters/actors that I like though!

Villager said...

Andree & Deb - Thank you for sharing your thoughts and visiting my WW post this week!

I'd not seen the Unit. It is shown on cable here. I'll have to check it out. The last US imports to catch my attention have been Heroes and Dexter.Happy WW

I watched it a few times, BUT, my acid reflux kept bothering me during the tense moments.

It is strange how we get caught up in a characater on a show.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I don't know anything about it and have never heard of such a TV movie either here in Europe. So it's impossible to comment, lol !

Villager, I can honestly say that I was shocked to see "Hector" up for your WW. I LOVE The Unit, but I don't know anyone else who does. I stop whatever I'm doing on Tuesday nights to watch, no recording. That show is so intense. I originally watched it because I am also a 24 fan and when they killed Dennis Haysbert off, I followed him to The Unit, not knowing that the entire cast would be great.

I too am going to miss seeing Barnes on the show, I really liked his character.

I'm stopping at a few favorite place before I go into complete Thanksgiving mode, lol. I hope that you and your family are blessed with a wonderful and blessed gathering. Talk to you after Thanksgiving!

Villager, I'm so sorry about Demore Barnes getting killed off from The Unit
I haven't watched the show lately but each time I come across trailers for the show it looks so good. I used to watch the show religiously in the beginning but the my nephew went to Iraq and I kinda backed off watching war shows. I shouldn't call it a "war" show because it is so much more. I'll have to get back to it. I'm sure you did shed a tear, that show was always SO well done.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Villager said...

Shelia & Teach - You can watch free episodes of the show on www.cbs.com if you miss one. The 2-part series with Hector being killed is still there.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

I've been afraid to watch that show, ever since I saw one of their wives slice her face open. I know, I'm a wuss.

Patti said...

I've never seen the show but I hate when characters are killed off (or leave) that I like on other shows. It's annoying! :) Happy WW!!

Melanie said...

I've heard of that show but never watched it. Don't you just want to slap them around...they always mess up the good ones. I don't watch much TV...every time I find something I like they cancel it or just mess it up...so frustrating. He sounded like a very strong character too.
Happy WW!

Vixen said...

My husband loves really likes that show and was not happy that they killed off Hector.

Happy WW

Deb said...

Nice post! Happy Wordless Wednesday! Happy Thanksgiving too! I cant believe the holiday season is here! This weekend we will put up all our Christmas decor, and listen to Christmas music! Have a good Holiday!

Never seen the Unit and while I hate it when they kill off characters I like I hate it more when you always know that at the end of the show they'll all be fine. It makes Buffy and Spooks far more thrilling because there was a sense of risk.

Sorry, I don't have a clue who this is. I gave up television and movies years ago. Have a great WW. :)

Heart of Rachel said...

I'm not familiar with the show but I feel sad whenever my favorite character dies in a TV show.

Natalie said...

Bummer, he's pretty cute!

My WW is up too!
