    Does every conversation need to be so intense and emotional over every problem? Does anyone else find there's way too much arguing, repetitive plot lines, and melodrama with nothing good ever happening, making it really draining to watch? Can't they move onto a story that doesn't involve endless infighting between Jessica, Harvey, Mike, Lewis, Donna, and Rachel? The structure goes something like this: Heated arguments in Harvey's office then Jessica's then Lewis' then the filing room, then arguments at Mike's house then Harvey's house, then Donna and Rachel console each other in the washroom, then walk n' talk arguments to and from the office, then a brief moment outside on the sidewalk, and a brief moment in court, then a catchy song, and then they roll the credits. They also argue quite loudly about confidential and private information where they confess to serious crimes that can be heard from a long distance. Why haven't they been caught by someone yet? Why has production settled to shoot this show in 5 basic sets and never on location? Is there no other story than someone trying to continuously divide and conquer the law practice of Pearson Spector Litt, season after season? Does every problem need to be handled by leveraging someone and character assassination? Where's the show about the practice of corporate law? Do you remember when this show was fun and playful and shot on location without excessive infighting and the ratings were 4.5? Remember when it wasn't a melodrama and the ratings weren't 1.71 like the season 5 finale?



    I ask these same questions over and over again at every episode, and I only vent my frustration because the ratings are so low and Suits could be a contender for best drama if they listened to my advice and reverted back to the things of season one that worked, as in, dial down the emotional outbursts over nothing, stop the soap opera infighting, move the camera back and film more coverage on location to improve the look and quality of production, reduce the number of episodes to force the writers to fight for the most important ideas which should increase the number of events per minute, spend more time building cases and practicing corporate law, and flesh out an original story that isn't based on someone bringing down the firm because that's been done to death!



    In season 6 I'd fast forward several years, and kill off Rachel as nobody cares about that relationship anyway and turn Mike into an alcoholic law professor who's trying to solve the case of her murder and in the meantime takes cases on the side with Harvey's small law firm, while training young students on how to excel in a world of suits. The show was good when it was about young lawyers overcoming Lewis. It would also be filled with trial law cases (as they're more interesting than the boring strategic maneuvering involved in corporate law cases) and they'd be current and unique, and they'd take time to establish and develop, all the while revealing more and more information about what happened in the missing years through backstory. I'd even put Mike back in his old apartment in Brooklyn! I guarantee that's a far more interesting idea, than whatever melodrama they're about to do in season 6.



    Suits should look to Better Call Saul for inspiration, as that's how a law show should be done.moreless
  • Perfect!

    I actually found this episode perfect. Full of twists and turns, and not at all what I was expecting... I honestly never expected Lois to take Mike's side in the end (I was so sure he was going to go through with stabbing everyone in the back!) I was kept on the edge of my seat during his trial, and still felt he was going to get away with it in the end! I love the way they portrayed Mike - the decision of the plea, the calling of the wedding because it wasn't right, and not turning in his friends. Loved this episode :)



    *Side point.... seriously? People are complaining about too many "g*d d@mn"s dropped?????? LOL! You are watching a show about corruption, and crossing paths with corrupt people and criminals?? I thought the language was pretty mild all things considered!! It's evening Saturday morning cartoons?? (smh) End of rant!moreless
  • Scenario

    4.0
    Possible Scenario Season 6. Why did Gibbs take the plea without getting Harvey or Jessica? Maybe she also knew that the verdict was not guilty. Possible prosecutorial misconduct?
  • My two cents about the g-ds...

    9.5
    First, I don't take them literally and I'm certain that many people using these words are not either.

    It's more a bad habit used by people getting angry than an intentional insult to whomever.

    Still I find it too bad if from a 45 minutes of a good show, some people were only able to concentrate on the g-ds/min ratio.

    Well... it's a free country and I'd be the last one to tell you what to do.

    Furthermore, I would rather have these people (you know who you are) to have the decency not to watch the show anymore instead of to give bad reviews that could have the show cancelled. In advance, thank you.moreless
