Why Suits is one of my favorite shows? Read here

 

I was waiting for a long time to write about this show. Suits on Amazon Prime is one of my favorite shows. I have written many posts on many TV shows but for very few shows I give the title ‘favorite‘.

This is my first legal TV drama and that may be the reason why I liked it. The show runs with law cases, court, judge, winning and losing, witnesses, oath, lies and the fight to be number one!

Accidentally Mike Ross ends up in an interview room holding a briefcase full of Marijuana. Harvey Specter is interviewing people to fill his associate post ends up meeting Mike.

Famously known as best closer of NewYork City, Harvey gets impressed by Mike’s intellectual and hires him even though Mike never attended law school. Only Harvey & Mike knows the truth but as the story progresses many end up in knowing Mike Ross’s secret. Some people start threatening Harvey and Mike taking advantage of the situation.

Circumstances change but Harvey never leaves Mike’s hand. Though he treats him like a first-year associate, he has a soft corner for him in his heart. They both win case over case making more enemies on their way.

In order to explain why this is my favorite show, I need to tell you guys about the main characters from the Suits. Because these characters made me fell in love with the show.

They are so well built that each and every character has its own weight. Many characters come and go but these main characters always remain to make a place in your heart.

 

Jessica Pearson

 

Suits my favorite show

 

Jessica is another name partner of Harvey’s firm. The relationship between Jessica & Harvey is the same as that of Harvey & Mike. She is one strong lady who became a name partner of Top law firm in NewYork.

Being a black lady it was not easy for her. She fought every hurdle that came in her way to create her success story. Jessica is the mommy of the firm balances everybody’s emotion. At the same time, she never tolerates mischief happening in her law firm.

Jessica is a great example of women empowerment. Her character is an inspiration!

 

Donna

 

Suits my favorite show

Donna is Harvey’s secretary who has a solution for everything. She knows everybody’s secret, keeps them intact and rushes to help when people need her.

She can make anything possible. Throughout the show, she impresses with her charm and gives the goals of ‘How to be a perfect secretary’.

Everyone in Suits is dependent on Donna. In one of the episode, there is an attempt of creating a digital Assistant similar Donna 😀 But it fails badly because nobody can replace or be like Donna 🙂

 

Harvey Spector

 

Suits my favorite show

The main character of the show Suits. Did I say he is my favorite? Well, I’m saying now 😀

His dialogue timing is just extraordinary. Gabriel Macht is so perfectly fit into Harvey’s place that it is impossible to imagine him without Harvey aura.

Harvey Spector is a brilliant lawyer knows how to beat his opponent. Because of his straightforwardness, he has made many enemies in the industry but people accept the fact that nobody can beat Harvey.

The way he helped Mike by going out of his boundary is commendable. Harvey treated Mike like his own brother but never said it. He saw himself in Mike and went out of his way to help him.

However, I didn’t like his relationship battle with Donna. I know that every love story does not necessarily need a happy ending but the director could have made Donna & Harvey relationship simpler.

 

Mike Ross

 

Suits my favorite show

The poor kid who has talent but not enough window to use it. Before working for Harvey, Mike used to write LSATs in the name of other candidates to earn money.

He has a photographic memory! That is how Harvey recognizes his talent and offers him a job even though he never went to Harvard.

Mike has a soft heart, wants to help people by working under the law. His parents died when he was young and grandmother died once after he joins law firm making him complete orphan.

Mike’s fight and arguments with Harvey Specter are just feasts to eyes.

 

Rachel

 

Suits my favorite show

Rachel is Paralegal working in the same firm ends up in a relationship with Mike. Lately,  Rachel comes to know about Mike secret but her love for him keeps them together.

Rachel’s dad has his own law firm but she never wanted to work under him. For Rachel, Jessica is a role model who inspires her to be independent.

Meghan Markle has done a fabulous job. Watching her on the screen is pure bliss.

Louis

 

Suits my favorite show

 

Louis always gets stuck! He is one of the best lawyers but he never gets much recognition from Harvey or Jessica.

Louis is a senior partner working in the same firm, always obsessed with Harvey and his success. He wants Jessica to treat him like Harvey but that never happens. Also, he wants to be friends with Harvey but Harvey keeps him 30 feet away!

He treats Harvey, Jessica, Rachel & Donna like his family.

Suits highlight many legal battles depicting the real struggles of a law firm. Along with work-life their personal life is highlighted and also the bonding between each of them is like a family.

 

Which one is better ‘The Good Wife’ or ‘Suits’?

 

Depends!

If you are asking in terms of law then ‘The Good Wife’ is better otherwise it is always Suits.

The Good Wife is another legal drama available on Amazon Prime. Similar to Suits, The Good  Wife handles issues with law cases, law firm, politics, family and emotions.

In The Good Wife, they have shown a variety of law cases. Every possible kind of cases and related legal details can be seen here. You will come to know more about the law by watching The Good Wife.

Also, it has more seasons and prolonged episodes compared to Suits. A mixture of politics is a wise touch to the story.

Suits is more dramatic with very few details about cases and the law. It is more of a person-oriented than law.  In simple words cases in Suits can be won easily if Harvey is handling them.

Whereas in The Good Wife cases depend on the evidence and witnesses.

 

Overall Suits is one of the best show and my favorite show available on Amazon Prime. They have started shooting for next season and Suits Season 9 may release by the end of this year.

Keep watching!

  1. Harvey Specter stole my heart when I watched the show! I haven’t seen The Good Wife but you’ve made a good comparison of the two.

  2. There have been several lawyer based serials – Good Wife, Law and Order, Boston Legal, Practice and L A Law. I have liked the first four. I have watched a few episodes of Suits. I did not like the Rick Hoffman’s character. Katherine Heigl somehow reminds me of Priyanka Chopra. I think Good Wife is several notches above.

  3. Oh this sounds like another interesting show. Will wait for season 9

  4. You should really start doing movie reviews. The way you analyze a show and put forth the positive aspects is really very unique. Three more days before all these shows start playing on my TBW gradually.

  5. Now this post is just after my own heart!!!! Harveyyyyy Spectre. Love the guy – he’s suave, smooth talking and soooo handsome!!! Loved the post explaining and justifying characters and their roles in this drama!!
