Yup, that's the proper way to think about this fella. Max Martini, he plays a fantastic character, Mack, in the show The Unit. Now, I'm not saying the show is realistic or accurate.
Just damned entertaining.
They took a trip overseas to visit with the guys they help portray. I like that. I also like that they do try to make the scenes as real as possible within the constraints of story line and - well, what Hollywood thinks they should be.
The last few eps have featured Mack and his slow slide into - well, perhaps not madness but...futility? He works this scene like crazy. And the look at his nemisis at the end of this one? Pure hate. Love it. If you haven't been watching, check out the full eps online. Like I say, it's not entirely lacking in BS but...it makes up for it with beefcake.
