This show is one of my all time favourites, from the first time I watched it I loved everything about it. I thought with season 7 being released it was time for me to go back and watch it all over again and see if I still love it as much as I think. Anyway, it is time for a review.
We follow the life of Micheal Ross, a guy who is only just getting by in life thanks to his mind. He is able to remember everything he reads, he uses his skill to cheat for other people on tests. It is while doing a job for a friend in order to get money he runs into an interview with Harvey Specter, the best closure in New York city. Harvey is only able to hire people who have graduated from Harvard as that is the company policy, but there is something about Mike that makes him hire him and allow him to practice law without a law degree. The show shows us the life he now leads as a lawyer and everything that he is able to do with his new life. One thing is always going to be on his mind and that is he might get caught at any moment.
The story is what makes this show so great for me, I remember when I first saw the trailer for the show years ago I thought it would be really boring as it was just about two guys solving cases and that didn’t interest me, but lucky for me nothing else was on TV that night and I ended up watching it and from the first episode I was hooked. The story is amazing as you can never tell which way it is going to go, you don’t know if Mike and Harvey are going to be able to solve the case in time or if they have finally meet their match with a new lawyer.
One thing I do love is how the story goes on from one episode to another, I know some series don’t like doing this but when a series does then its just great. Finding out more about Mikes life as a kid and how he was raised by his grandmother is great as it gives us more of a personal connection to him which if you are like me just makes you love him even more. This happens over a number of episode in the first season and it helps in the characters progression from the naive newbie to becoming a one day great lawyer.
The acting is also amazing, Patrick Adams (Mike) and Gabriel Macht (Harvey) are amazing in the show and with them being the main character you would expect it from them. Everything they do on screen is fantastic whether it be them arguing as they don’t agree on something to them having the best bromance since Chandler and Joey you can’t help but love them. Meghan Markle (Rachel), Sarah Rafferty (Donna) and Gina Torres (Jessica) also do an amazing job and just like Adams and Macht everything they do is fantastic.
The intro to this show is another one of those that just doesn’t get old and it is not until I started season 1 again did I really start to notice just how great the whole intro is, from the visuals to the music it is great to watch even if it has been over 100 times.
The mixture of law and comedy is something I didn’t think would every go well together but that was till this show came around, it does everything right with the amazing story, to witty comments and dear god movie references all over the place it is simply amazing and I recommend if you haven t seen it yet give season 1 of suits a try as I am sure you will love it.
