Enjoyable, but...

It's undoubtedly a fun show to watch, but the premise is a stretch to say the least.

*Spoilers*
I doubt that any major NY firm (or any firm, for that matter) would hire or keep Mike as an associate considering his situation. If they are impressed with him, why not hire him on a part-time basis, help him complete his education (should be a walk in the park for him), and do things properly?

Also, all this sleeping around of the main characters gets old very quickly. What is this, the 18,878th show that uses cheap sex to keep the action going?

fantastic show ... worth the watch
Verified purchase
So, I am not necessarily a big fan of office dramas, but a friend told us about the show...

This is a seriously good show. Gabriel Macht and Patrick Adams make a great team... the supporting players start out kind of stereotypical, but they get developed nicely, starting in the third episode.

Louis Litt is perfectly played and Rachel and Jenny are strong and get fleshed out as the season moves along, as well.
I am glad that the other characters are getting their screen time too...
Eagerly awaiting the beginning of the second season... oh wait, I can get it any time I want, because they are on Amazon... got to love video streaming.

Those clothes—really?
Verified purchase
This series is a fun romp though you do have to suspend your disbelief to get into it. It reminds me a lot of White Collar, same sort of relationship between the two leading characters.

My biggest complaint is the clothes that the actresses wear. I mean, really? I doubt that even fashionable women in NYC wear clothes like that. The designers might as well draw arrows on the fabric to make sure viewers don't miss any of the "good" parts in the female leads.

You know what I would really like to see—male actors doing their bits wearing mega-high heels, skin-tight dresses with accentuating zippers, and shirts cut down to here. I know the women are there to give the male viewers something to drool over but really? Sometimes, the women's clothes just make me laugh out loud.

Grabs You from the First Episode!

I watched Suits when it first came out on USA network and loved it. Enough time has passed that I decided to watch it again on Prime. Just as I remembered, Season 1 was fantastic. I stopped watching it on USA after the beginning of Season 3 because I was just so tired of all of the ridiculous conspiracies, but I suppose that is a review for Season 3, not Season 1!!!

Season 1 has so many good things going for it - great dialogue, realistic portrayal of young 20-something's, gorgeous actors, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, I like that Mike is trying to turn his life around and make better decisions. I like that in Season 1, Harvey is a rule-follower. I like that despite a lot of smack talk, it feels like there is genuine camaraderie between everyone at the firm. Again, these things start falling away in Season 2, and definitely in Season 3, which is why I stopped watching it. (same exact problem with The Good Wife, in my opinion)

I am going to give the Seasons 3+ a try - I'll see if I can stomach it better this time around!

Draws you in. Good acting, good story lines.

I like it. It is smart, sassy and even has a little romance too. The interaction between the various layers in the law firm hierarchy is interesting. Sometimes I think it goes off the deep end. For example, it's hard to believe that people like Louis Litt really exist, but I have never been a member of a law firm so perhaps I am wrong. BTW, Louis (Rick Hoffman) would do a bang up great job of playing Friday in a revamped Dragnet. He would probably be better than Jack Webb was in the original.

The NY City visuals are stunning. A must see on HDTV.

Didn't meet expectations but will likely still watch.
Verified purchase
With 16k+ reviews at a full 5 stars I had very high expectations for this show. Maybe that's the problem. I was expecting more but found it to be fairly formulaic and cheesy. Some scenes were so predictable and short that it felt like they were trying to check off a box. Rick Hoffman's character is so creepy I almost turned it off. And yet I guess the ironic part is that despite everything I said above, there is a good chance I will keep watching the show. Something about the relationship between Harvey and Mike makes it worth watching especially if you take the show for what it's worth. Not brilliant, but entertaining enough when you are looking to wind down after a hard day with mindless TV.

Love, love, LOVE "Suits"

I was urged by others to watch Suits. I am so glad I finally gave it a try. It is my Tip Top Fave among new shows in 2011. My only complaint is that the first season was just too short. If you want details about the show, find the review on Amazon by Grady Harp. That is an excellent and comprehensive review.

I'm a dedicated fan of Gina Torres, so I'm lovin' her mastery of this very stylish new role. I'm also very impressed with the other female regulars. These characters are strong, smart, witty, and independent with nary a cliche' among them to cling to; well acted, but also very well written.

Mike Ross is adorable, brash yet humble, and somehow seems like everybody's favorite cousin most of the time. He caves in to the vampire prince, Trevor, too easily and that's my one caution on this series. I hope the writers will do everything in their power to avoid falling into the formulaic style that forces them to reuse familiar devices like Trevor to engineer conflict into an episode. A guy like Trevor would keep coming back, but a guy like Mike with a break like this job would kick the ratfink to the curb or call in special forces before he'd belly up again with that punk.

Haven't had so much fun with a show since Castle came out and I haven't enjoyed dialogue & story so much since Aaron Sorkin left West Wing. Leverage I also like, but it's the difference between cotton candy and a Red Velvet Cupcake.

The comparison to The Good Wife is not useful in my opinion. Good Wife uses the law firm as a backdrop for the character dramas, but the story is driven by sexual encounters. Suits uses the business of law as the catalyst and the stories are more about how the actual work develops character.

And Gabriel Macht! Dear Lord, what a classy character. Everytime I want to label him as a Mako, he surprises me with a big teddy bear move. There is a terrible tension that one must wrestle in a powerful position like Harvey's. It's the random acts of goodness that keep us human and alive on the inside. Well-written character, acted to perfection.

Kudos all around and Keep Up the GREAT work!

What was I waiting for?!!!!

When I avidly watched USA, my shows were Burn Notice & Law & Order: CI, so it generally takes me some time to warm up to anything new. However, I do have an affinity for programs that deal with the law, and the law looks totally different until you have to use the law. I think that may have been the reason I did not watch Suits for the 1st 2 seasons: I just wasn't interested. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the last episode of Season 2, all because it was coming on while visiting family. I enjoyed it, and since the 1st 2 seasons are included with Amazon Prime, I watched them.....in less than 7 days. I was hooked, and while the incredible outcomes are more or less rooted in truth to make you think, "That could happen," it is entertaining enough to keep you there. The cast is very well chosen, and having witnessed first hand how attorneys truly have a science to the method of their madness, for nearly 2 years, Suits is a gentle remainder that such programs only feed the perception of the law is and what the law is not. In other words, IT IS WELL WORTH WATCHING!!!!! While I do not think it is absolutely necessary to watch the first season to enjoy the second season, it is always good to have a grasp on different references made at certain points during the show. The angle presented as to how the two main characters come together is cool, so if you haven't thought to view Suits, I think you'll absolutely enjoy it.
