Have you always fancied yourself as a top lawyer? Then you’ll love Suits, which centers on the intrigues in the fictional law firm Pearson Hardman. Everything changes when brilliant college-dropout Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) applies for a job there. Although he doesn’t have a law degree, successful corporate lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is so impressed that he hires him anyway. A great move, it would seem…
Suits is not a typical lawyer series. For one thing, Mike Ross doesn’t have a Harvard law degree like his colleagues at the firm, and this original twist provides the series with the necessary verve. Mike and his mentor Harvey Spector work hand in glove, but their friendship goes through rough patches. Can Mike survive in the legal jungle? And will his not-so-impeccable past come back to haunt him?
A talented lawyer needs to have an elephant’s memory, but also a silver tongue. This was not lost on the makers of this series. Suits is a feast for the ear with crisp, inventive dialog and non-verbal communication charged with meaning. The strong acting performances make this a great series which combines drama with subtle humor.
Suits harks back to the basics of being a lawyer: a good lawyer gets involved and uses his daring and intelligence to help his client in every way he can. And that’s exactly what Mike’s good at. Harvey, who is fully aware of this, uses Mike to smooth off the sharp edges of his own cold character.
Daniel Hardman returns to the law firm that he was driven from after engaging in blackmail and other dirty tricks. He does everything he can to win over the staff, but it’s not exactly plain sailing. An intense power struggle erupts which holds everyone enthralled at the law firm.
In the third season of Suits, intrigue – what else? – again plays a central role on many different levels: you have Mike’s love trials, an internal power struggle at the firm, and Suits wouldn’t be Suits without the theme of fraud …
Conflicts of interest, dirty tricks, and other shady practices are the main ingredients of the fourth season of this hit series. Mike again plays a pivotal role, but other characters also get dragged into an unstoppable carrousel of power games and conflicting interests.
