TV Review: Suits
Suits is a fairly new show that I’ve only in the past few days had a chance to watch. It’s about Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a young college dropout with an eidetic memory that through a series of unlikely events ends up working for the best lawyer in the city, Harvey Spectre (Gabriel Macht).
(Check out the much better summary on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1632701/)
When I watched the first episode, the plot and characters drew me in and I've been slightly (read: very) obsessed with the show since. The show is very well written, the chemistry between the characters is brilliant and even though I have never studied law I still found it easy to follow. The legal lingo may be a little overwhelming at times, so this isn't a show you can only half watch. I'm guilty of doing this far to often, but I've found that I haven't been bored enough while watching Suits to doze off like I usually do. The characters are amazing and interact so naturally with each other, it feels as though I'm watching their real life rather than a story performed by actors. Harvey is definitely my favorite, he's witty, charming, and handsome to boot. He and Mike have such great chemistry that I can't help but wonder if they're secretly long-lost brothers or something. Louis is another great character, he's funny and lovable even though he's supposed to be an antagonist of sorts. I could go on for days about the rest of the characters (I'm already ranting a bit), but I'm afraid I might bore you all to death so I'll keep it short: everyone on Suits works so well together it's just an immense pleasure to watch, I very much recommend this show.
This post is very short, but I'm afraid that if I go on I might put you off the show. I tend to do that, if you were to ask anyone who knows me (particularly my sister) they'd tell you I tend to rant. A lot. So watch the show and tell me what you think, I promise you won't regret it!
Until next time, enjoy some more modern music to go with this more modern post. The song is UN Owen Was Her (thank you to Fang for correcting me):
