  • The premise of this show does not simply stretch the truth. It is impossible. IM-PO-SSI-BLE.

    1.0

    Just for one moment, could we all please address the 600 pound gorilla in the room? This entire show is based on an impossible premise. The premise I'm talking about is that Mike can practice law just by having passed by the bar exam, and that the only deceit is that he graduated from Harvard. DOH! To practice law you need to be admitted to the bar of the jurisdiction in which you intend to practice. In New York, as in every state, to be admitted to the bar, passing the bar exam is NOT ENOUGH. Among other things you need to show proof that you graduated from an accredited law school, and that proof must take the form of a final transcript showing that you graduated and showing three years' worth of grades. So, obviously, Mike is not and cannot be a member of the New York bar or the bar of any other state. As such the scams and deceits of the show's characters pale in comparison to the scam that the show's producers and writers are perpetrating on those gullible enough to tune in every week. And I should know - I'm a lawyer. And a member of the New York bar. And, for the record, a graduate of Harvard Law School. (Don't get me started about all the baloney about HLS that the show propagates ....)

  • Suits - Ready for the Thrift Store

    2.0
    The new season of Suits has started with to lack luster bickering episodes that are a waste of TV users time. Hope the show corrects the downward spiral they are acting out in the show.
  • What's with the GD?

    Why all the sudden are you spewing GD all over the place? My home is my safe haven from all that trash and I don't allow that in my house.



    Good bye Suits .. keep your trash talk to yourself
  • When Did Suits Become an Estrogen Fest?

    3.0
    I use to like Suits. It was light with a fun premise that we all enjoy (see "Catch Me if You Can"). BUt, when did Suits abandon it's original "Buddy/imposter"premise for the Estrogen Fest? This is a different show. It use to be about 2 guys. Now its about 3 or 4 women a couple of minor characters (played by the original 2 guys). Also, when did it go from fun episodes that had all kinds of clients (and conclusions) to one story about one client (with some lame attempt at a weekly cliffhanger) for the entire season. It's a feakin' Soap Opera now. I love shows that I can watch with my wife. This use to be one of them. Now even she's rejecting it because it's not the same show. USA has a diverse viewership I'm sure, but this show has abandoned regular guys. Maybe USA just wants to get it syndicated on Bravo or OWN. And bringing on all that great talent just makes it worse because they are so underutilized. And giving Louis a pussy to fight for? OMG, did the film school dropout director just watch "The Departed?"

    I love the show but this epi sucked. Mikes holier than thou attitude went overboard to stupidity. And what kind of shitty weed were they smoking? No one got high?

    I still love the show but please get it right.

    I have to admit at first that I thought the show was good. However, I started to notice that the actor playing the character

    Harvey has too much say as to who is to guest on the show. Like for example, the woman who plays the role of Donna on show.

    He knows her personally and therefore her role has expanded. Furthermore, his real life wife was even a guest on the show.

    Usually I would not complain but, after this past summer when so many people complained about Will Smith helping his

    son further his career. And yet no one is saying anything when the actor playing Harvey has people he knows personally

    on the show all of the time. So, I have decided to stop watching the show until the writers start giving the other actors

    on the show more air time and more say as to the direction of the show. Because, as it is now the actor playing Harvey has

    too much say and it gives off the vibe that it is a one man show.



    Additionally, the only character that has not had much developed storyline is Jessica. I would have liked to have seen more

    of her personal life since the show has no problem showing everyone else's personal life. She needs to have a healthy personal

    relationship outside of work. More, as her character is now it seems like in order to be successful a woman has to be single and

    put her job before her personal life. (Also, I am aware of the fact that her character is divorced. However, that does not excuse the

    fact that her character does not have a personal life outside of work).



    Finally, it would be nice to see more minorities on the show and not just as clients either.

    As an example, I am talking about Asian, Black and Indian. (Please do not hate, respect my opinion as I would respect yours.

    Because, negative responses will be ignored).
  • It's a fancy, polished, glossy new show, but it lacks originality, chemistry and credibility legal theme based shows require to survive.

    5.0
    I must admit watching the whole 70 minutes was an ordeal. Perhaps I'm being prejudiced, but there's a limit to how far you can test the viewer's patience with clichees.

    Harvey Specter - sure the whole "I'm a handsome, charming, well dressed lawyer with an overinflated ego and care for no one besides myself" fits him like a glove, but I feel as if he just takes it too far.

    Mike Ross - college dropout, part time drug dealer/user, oh but let's not forget his photographic memory (an angle that's being so overused in way too many shows), and his relationship to the sick grandmother that brought him up, and, in what looked like a death-bed promise, made him open his eyes to reality and swear to turn his life around and fulfil his true potential. - also, the manner in which he obtained the job at the law firm was just too much junk for me to swallow whole.

    Rachel Zane - the firm's best paralegal. Ravishing looks, a sharp mind accompanied by a sharp tongue, should have been a lawyer but *ahem* 'does not test well'. Please ..I only see 'office bimbo' tattooed on her forhead.

    Jessica Pearson - she has no credibility as a boss as far as I'm concerned. She gives in to Harvey's requests way to easily and does not sell on the iron fist a chief has to have in order to keep renegades like Harvey and Mike in line.

    Louis Litt - I'm actually curious enough to watch the next episodes just to see how they plan on including Louis in the mix, because the only vibe I got from him was that of the office muscle, that only shows his face when someone needs a good bashing or intimidation.

    To conclude, this show looks to me like a very expensive hooker with very expensive implants, which will surely enough end up burning, like many of its predecessors, most of which were oh so much more fascinating.
  • Make it more interesting

    6.5
    Get back season 1 personal matters like Mike Rose and his best friend/girl friend or Harvey Specter and his personal issues! Season 2 is being so professional oriented. What made season 1 amazing is the mixture of both personal and professional matters with an amazing twist!
  • Why not more mature?

    7.0
    Most of the cast are within their characters, however I find Jessica is way too young to convince me that she has that vast knowledge of the legal world. It would be more convincing if Jessica was a more mature lady with a streak of white hair, piercing eyes and assertive manner.
  • Language

    7.0
    I REALLY enjoy this show --- probably my favorite; however, the unnecessary use of the Name of God as a curse word will cause me to have to give up watching. It seems that the slur using God's Name in vain is now very frequent in every episode. Is this considered enhancing to the show? I find it degrading. This of course is my opinion which I share with many others including without a doubt the owner of that NAME. God is NOT the 'dammer'. I would very much like to be able to continue enjoying this show; so whoever is responsible, I would PLEASE request that you remove this blasphemy from the script and allow those who are sensitive to this type of language to keep watching. It is a very intriguing show with wonderful characters. Just let it be clean.
  • Use Dictionary to increase creativity!

    7.0

    Really enjoy the show, BUT I'm annoyed by the fact that someone in the cast says "G_d d__n" at least two times on each show. Writers should search the dictionary if they run out of ways to describe anger, and disgust! God does not damn. We damn ourselves!

  • Suits heading the way of American Chopper, soon the bickering will start!

    7.5
    Loved Suits 1, couldn't wait for Suits 2 but the reappearance of the thorn in Jessica's side is a thorn in mine too. I don't want to watch a show wondering when the distasteful bit is coming and the character I hate is due on. The division of the staff and how long it's going to take to get rid of Hardman and get back to a an interesting and enjoyable series. Fifteen minutes into episode 2 and I'm ready to turn off. Real life can be that unpleasant, don't want it on my television. watched it ok, keep him down to 10% and its still the best
  • Love it! only 10 eps - and much of that mushy romance stuff? C'mon!!

    8.0
    Correction: It's only half-season. I really hate half-seasons. This season gets 8, but only because the end of the She's Mine episode was so fantastic!! Otherwise, this season was about 7-7.5 for us.



    Entire family really enjoyed seasons 01 & 02 (rate those a 10!!!) Great entertainment. Love the nitty-gritty and down-and-dirty - when it's there. Wish they would concentrate more on legal battles, wit, drama, and fantastic dialogue - and less on the romance. If I want romance, plenty of other shows to watch. Nothing can wipe out a show's sex appeal faster than turning it into a mushy romance. Hope they'll get back to the meat and potatoes next season, because this one seemed like it was more about salad and lipstick. Well, except for that ooooone episode. Go Harvey! Loved it.
  • It used to be great - now it's the same ego's in the same emotional conflicts

    8.0
    I used to love this show. Now, three episodes in in the third season, I'm not so sure anymore. I'm getting really tired of the constant emotional stand offs between the main characters. The ego's who's always wounded by everything is getting tiresome, if you ask me. I wish the writers would come up with something more than the same stories with slight different angles. It's just not engaging to watch anymore. It was great in all of season 1 and half of season 2.
  • A prequel with the life of Harvey

    8.0
    A prequel with the life of Harvey & related prfessional with current issue at the same time could be possible for coming Suits seasons.does it sound familiar to your idea.

    cheer up.
  • I guess the idea was to take a legal drama and put it into a fast lane: and as long as they keep it there I'll keep watching.

    8.0
    Some might resent the visual style that's so polished it shines: cool cars, attractive women, men looking ready to walk off the set onto a GQ photo-shot, lots of glass-covered skyscrapers and aerial shots of the city at night – but, I love it! I love the stylish cold colour palette: it's a perfect look for a summer show. I'll welcome ust/romantic moments, why not? We have some mighty fine looking people in the cast and I would like to see them holding a glass of Chteau Margaux under the candlelight and with the obligatory skyline in the background ;) As long as they don't make it soap opera-ish. Which brings me to writing. So far, I have no complaints. Let's hope the writers will keep Trevor's now ex-girlfriend out of Mike's life. I don't even remember her name, that's how little I care for that storyline. But, I do like the twists in court cases, the dialogues and the one-liners. Very entertaining!

    Two of my favourites: Mike: I don't know how to file a patent.
    Harvey: Figure it out. M: Can't we do that after...
    H: No. Keep talking and I'll start billing you and my time runs a thousand dollars an hour.
    M: Isn't this our time, Mr. Hand?
    H: I stand corrected. Your Fast Times at Ridgemont High quote proves that you belong at the adult table.
    M: Hey! That's a great movie and it spoke to a generation! And:

    Louis: You know that I pick a pony out of the herd every year, don't you?
    Mike: A pony?
    L: Oh, yeah. Someone who shows potential. Stamp my own little brand on 'em. M (clears his throat)
    L: Are you that pony, Mike?
  • Suits me, it will Suit you.

    8.5
    Addictive, well written and great actors. Suits is USA at the top of their game.
  • Would love to recommend...

    8.5
    BUT with the frequent use of God's name in vain I can't! :-( I've come to grimace through it myself but as a pastor's wife I can't share my enthusiasm for the writing, acting, plots and twists with my many friends and family. I'm hopeful that next season they can drop that from their vocabulary. They're all playing intelligent people - there are wittier phrases to use that would show better verbal skills.
  • Language? Sure thing One Million Mom.

    8.5
    Excellent show, great chemistry between the main cast. This show is not going to redefine the genre but it's great fun and has some strong, relatable characters.



    As for the review that bashes the show about "improper" language - this show is not obscene by ANY means. Calling for the show to change in order to reflect hilariously repressed and outdated values of a small minority is laughably immature. Sure, let's truncate the show's believability in order to cater to an extreme and non-lucrative special interest party (lawyers who are afraid to swear? HAHA).



    Besides, there is plenty of drinking, drug use and fornication, as well as morally ambiguous legal action, yet you focus on the use of a single WORD. A word that was part of the English lexicon far longer than the Christian lexicon (yeah, but you guys OWN that, right?). If these are your values, by all means keep them well. This show is independent of you and your values and is directed at a far larger and less severe audience. Please ride off elsewhere on that high horse of yours; perhaps the teletubbies will run a courtroom special.
  • GREAT SHOW

    8.5
    Can wait til it starts, great actors, good writing, great team!
  • Suits, a show about the exceptional underdog growing up and kicking butt legal style.

    8.5
    Honestly I am just glad this isn't Fairly Legal with a male character. I've been wishing a show would come around that was less Raising the Bar or Eli Stone, and more Damages and Boston Legal. Or scratch all that and go pure dark side with a Breaking Bad-esque legal show.

    If only producers would stop crafting caring stories for every kind of out of luck character they can think of, and instead create a gritty throw out all the rules legal drama.

    Wishing aside, this show has caught my attention, and hopefully will continue to be edgy and not succumb to warm platitudes...
  • A legal team of one senior member and his assoicate, the difference between the two. Only one has a degree. How does this legal show stack up against Franklin and Bash or Fairly Legal?

    8.5
    What do you get when you combine the smarts of Shawn Spencer form Psych, with the charm and cunning of Michael Weston from Burn Notice. Their exact copies as lawyers. In the first episode we meet Harvey Specter a no nonsene attorney who is known for closing any sort of deal. In the first thirty minutes we see him subdue a stubbon client through lying and taking home a waitress who challenged him by saying nothing was going to happen. He reminds me alot of Michael Westen. Both characters are cool and collected who will use any trick in the book to win any case. We also meet Mike Ross, a man with photographic memory. Who was forced out of college for a dumb mistake. About ready to make another one he stumbles into Harvey Specter's assoicate interviews and after explaining his life to Harvey gets hired on as his new assoicate. This character reminds me a bit like Shawn Spencer, they both have the same unique talent and use it to get out of messes. Mike is more shy, and damaged. He is damaged because of the choices he was forced to make and the struggle he is having with his ill grandmother. This show focuses more on the drama and not the comedy. There is alot of smart dialoge and good chemistry between the two main stars. However I did find the chemistry between the main stars and other characters a bit lacking. Gina Torres makes her well deserved welcome back to TV as Harvey's boss, Jessica Pearson. She is more of a plot point than an actual character. Hopefully they will give her a character specific episode where they build more on her. The paralegal Rachel Zane also was a bit sketchy for me. She starts the episode sort of rude and annoying, then within thirty minutes, warm and kind. This show also features the great Rick Hoffman, playing the same character Rick Hoffman always plays. This version is Louis Litt who is the main rival of Harvey. For the first episode in general.
    +Great writing. Especially the dialoge between Harvey and Mike. +Good character growth. Even though this is only one episode, you can tell how much Mike has grown a bit. Here's to the rest of the season showing him keep on growing as a person and lawyer. +/- The plot is alright for this episode. You can tell they meant to make this a regular length episode then they had to turn around and add scenes. Some scenes made no sense and wans't neeed some scenes fit perfectly. This show isn't a 90 minute show. So if you are reviewing the show thinking that every episode is going to be this slow, you may have reviewed too early. - The pacing of the first episode was off. However as I said this was a longer episode than usual. - Character relationships. The only characters that seemed to click together with chemistry was Harvey and Mike. Here's to hoping this gets fixed in later episodes. I rate the first episode a seven. However I have hope that this series will grow and get better. I find it more interesting than Fairly Legal and it is definitely funnier than Bash. I gave this episode an 8.5
  • Very good show but 1/2 of the main characters are unlikeable IMO (Mike)

    9.0
    So the show is pretty great, overall I would rate it a 10/10. Love Harvey, Louis, Donna, and even Jessica, but I'm marking the show down one point because I can't stand Mike and Rachel. Normally I wouldn't care about secondary characters like Rachel, but Mike is one of the two primary characters. I can't honestly give any show with an unlikeable main character a perfect score. So, considering that, 9/10 (still absolutely worth your time).

    Although season 3 has been a bit lower than the first two so far, this is still a very good show - Lawyers action without too much of a procedural structure (there is no case of the week). Humour in the dialogues, and not just the ones that relate to Louis, the excellent comic relief character. You will have to get used to Harvey's always being right and all that, but even in the worst of it, it has been enjoyable. More Suits to come, please!

    9.0
    I really like Suits, think the show is exciting and in trigging, been watching it since it first came on USA. The only problem I have with the show is that the characters are saying God Dammit, a lot at that. I don't care if they say things like fuck, shit, dam, things along that line but when they say God Dammit it hurts my mind. I am a Christian and I resent them speaking with those words. Please try to clean that up, I am sure there are many that are thinking along those lines as well. Thank you for hearing me out, Roxanne E. James

    First season was brilliant, second was ok, third has been better than 2 but I still feel Mike needs to stop telling everyone his secret. Makes no sense, if thay can keep that part out third season has been great.



    Only person of Interest is better as Drama at the moment, to me it has some of house over it even though House was better. Great dialogue is what makes it great

    Not usually a fan of lawyers shows but Suits is the exception. Love the characters. I don't want Harvey and Mike bickering, their friendship is the best thing about this show. Can't wait for the new season!
  • Mind blown!

    Last nights season finale blew my mind. *SPOLIER* When Mike told Rachel I nearly exploded. I've been waiting for this since the end of last season. It's kind of sad that Mike and Harvey are angry at each other though. Them being on the opposite side seems wrong. A great show.
