Suits TV Series

I think it has been so long since I wrote about my favourite show. But I have a new one now and it is on Monday and it is good. I can't wait for Mondays now. The show is called Suits and it is about a genius guy who pulled off as a Lawyer even though he doesn't has any degree in law. Go figure.

I love the way the two characters interact where the mentor is more like corporate and ruthless guy and the mentee is more compassionate and naive guy. They have to cover-up the fact that the mentee is not a graduate lawyer but a genius guy with great memory and can absorb everything that he read. Kinda cool huh!

Here's the summary of the character:

Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a brilliant college dropout. Mike's childhood dream of becoming a lawyer was derailed after he was caught selling a math exam to the Dean's daughter. Naturally intelligent and with an eidetic memory, Mike makes a living taking tests for other people, particularly LSATs.He has to take care of her grandma and sometimes his trouble friend Trevor. He is very details and likes his client . I think that is why Harvey likes him.

Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is one of New York City's top attorneys who has recently been promoted to senior partner at his firm, and is forced by company policy to hire an associate. After an accidental interview with Mike, Harvey is impressed by the younger man's quick wits, his encyclopedic knowledge of the law, and his genuine desire to be an attorney, and hires him. Due to the fact that Mike lacks a law degree, and because the firm prefers Harvard alumni, they both pretend that Mike is a Harvard graduate. He looks so good in suits, seriously, I mean wow! Sometimes he has soft heart that he seldom shows off but I think only Mike knew about it.

Jessica Pearson is Harvey's boss and she can be your good friend or your worst enemy. In Person Harden Firm, she is number one to impress with but she is good in what she is doing and she is a good boss.

At the firm, Mike is continuously hounded by junior partner Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), Harvey's jealous rival. He is kind annoying and I love how he is always "kena" with Harvey or even Mike. He is like "a baddy" in this show.

Mike is eventually befriended by Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle), a paralegal, whose test anxiety has prevented her from attending law school, and the two soon develop a mutual attraction. Mike and Harvey often come into conflict over Mike's naiveté and ethical scruples and Harvey's hard charging and seemingly uncaring demeanor.Could be Mike's love interest.

Another interesting character would be Donna Paulsen played by Sarah Raffety. She is Harvey's assistant and close confidant. She will go out of her way to help Harvey, even it means crossing Harvey himself. She has worked with Harvey since his first year as an ADA. She is powerful enough to be able to scare even Louis, having an extensive memory of his former indiscretion. She is funny and outspoken and I love how she interact with Harvey and Mike.

Usually the show start at 10am on Diva @ 702 channel and always clashes with Revenge on Star World (another favourite show). But I think I can't wait for another repeat for this show so that is why I choose to watch it rather than Revenge.

The show has been renewed for a second season and I can't wait to  wait how the story goes. Have to stop now, the show is about to start!
