I have to admit that I’ve been a little bit of an NCIS addict since they were running a marathon back in November when I had the flu. [Side note, if you have to get addicted to a show, one with at least 10 seasons is a good plan.] All that time spent watching the USA network introduced me to series that I had never heard of before. One of those was Suits. Then a friend mentioned she likes it. And then I found Season 1 at the library, so I decided to give it a shot.
There are many many reasons not to like Suits. Many of the characters fulfil all the stereotypes of lawyers – brash, overconfident and self-centered. The writing tends to be predictable. I doubt I would be willing to spend time with the characters if I met them in real life. And yet…. Somehow the show is very watchable. Personally I think it is the Mike Ross character that makes the show relatable. And you always suspect that Harvey does have a human heart beating somewhere within his chest.
I finished the season in just a few days (with some help from a snow storm) and it held my interest throughout. It’s no West Wing, but it is an enjoyable show.
