  • Good Riddance

    Get Lost Trevor, you're a troublemaker, you're a crappy character and I'm bored with you. Even Nanna doesn't like you!! hahahaha.

    The fun of this show is around Mike and Harvey's relationship, Mike getting to know the law and the business, and him getting worried about getting caught... NOT this rubbish about his dope dealing loser old bestie nearly pulling back to his old life. It's fair to think his old life might be calling to him, but this rubbish is just too dramatic.

    And yes, I'm a little late to the party with this show, but I'm still making comments anyway hahaha.
  • wowwww

    Awesome gr8
  • Becoming a sit-dram

    I found this episode really trying my patience, seeing Mike dig himself deeper and deeper into situations we all knew would get him into trouble with Harvey. It's almost like the old sit-coms of the 60s with the 'wait until your father comes home' sense of payoff.

    I also found the end scenario rather far-fetched with Harvey producing an 8x10 glossy photograph from security video footage, securing $10k in an envelope, drafting a contingency contract while Mike secures a cross-country bus ticket for his pal Travis during the one hour deadline they had from the bad guys. Right...
  • This was a good episode, but not my favorite.

    I'm just not interested in Trevor-Mike storyline and hopefully this is the end of it. So, I guess the point of this episode was to show that, yes, Harvey does have a heart. Deep down, he is really a good guy, but don't tell anyone: he has a reputation to uphold. The court scenes were pretty weak. I didn't buy the taxi driver, who was so confident, almost smug, suddenly turning to mush by the question: What color was the light? This was built up through the episode as a troublesome case for Harvey, but it ended feebly, leaving me with: That's it?

    And while I like watching Harvey law-sharking his way ahead, the scene with drug dealers was laughably absurd. No, I do not believe one can rely on verbal skills to outmatch thugs with guns. I do not think one can wave 10.000 dollars in front of their faces, then put it back in the pocket and expect criminals to react like rational adults.

    - You don't send a puppy to clean up its own mess.
    - Harvey to Louis: Stress balls? You're making it too easy.
    - Louis: So, what is this? New cologne or a hint of jealousy? Harvey: I'm surprised you don't recognize your wife's perfume. I know. You're not married. It's still funny. – Don't know why, but I like those non-existent-wife jokes!
  • A bit overdone. Harvey just walked in at the end of the episode and solved all three problems in an instant. But still good, just not as good as the previous episodes

    was my least favorite of the episodes so far. I wish there was more of a case this time, and I felt it got left behind. I wasn't a big fan of how the Trevor thing ended. Seriously, Harvey even knows how to deal with drug dealers? wasn't really buying it, and that part just felt overdone. But the whole chemistry is still there and strong. I liked Donna alot in the episode it was funny to see her reject Louis. Just a solid episode, but wish there was less of the Mike/Trevor storyline. It went a bit over the top sometimes.
