This week, we are headed to the courtroom! Suits has been one of my private legal series due to several reasons including the on-screen chemistry between the characters especially Harvey Specter and Mike Ross. Indeed, bromance on TV is more interesting to watch than the cliché boy meets girl storyline. Seeing the duo kick ass in the court room over and over again made me sometimes wish that I was a lawyer but I know that is not for me. But those aspiring to be attorneys or the legal enthusiasts should definitely watch this show. It shows some of the tough decisions lawyers have to make and lines they have to cross to win their cases.
I do believe that Suits is the perfect choice of name for the show as it mainly deals with law suits and also because the gentlemen do rock the suits! Always looking sharp!
- Where would you rank it on your favorites’ list?
Probably top 25.
- From 1-10, how obsessed are you?
Not obsessed but I keenly follow the seasons. I’d rate myself a 5.
- How did you discover the show?
My dear brother.
- What was your initial thought of the show and did it change after watching it?
I found the story line quite interesting; having a smart mind work as a lawyer although he had no professional qualification and yet do so well at it. I found it even more intriguing watching how far he had to go to keep the façade and how it would cost him those who mattered most to him.
- Why do you like the show?
I like the show because of the interesting cases Harvey and Mike get to work on together and how they are able to manipulate things in their favor without breaking the law. The big and kid brother/ mentor and mentee relationship they share makes their scenes together always fun to watch.
- Who is your favorite character in the show?
Can’t choose between Harvey and Mike.
- Least favorite character in the show.
Trevor, Mike’s used-to-be friend. He caused quite a stir.
- How would you kill off your favorite character?
Wow…Can’t think of how.
- Any memorable villains?
Daniel Hardman; he was such a thorn in the flesh and he kept coming back no matter how far you threw him away! Travis Tanner was quite a pain in the butt as well as Cameron Dennis. They kept the central characters on their toes.
10. Who is your crush on the show?
Harvey. Although he comes off as a tough guy, he is actually a caring character. It shows in how he is deeply concerned about Mike’s welfare as well as Donna’s.
11. If you were to be a character, who would you choose?
Jessica Pearson. She had a strong character and was good at keeping her cool under intense pressure. She managed to keep the firm together despite the many attempted plots to cripple it. And she held a firm control over Harvey, Mike and Louis despite their dominant natures. She made Managing Partner look so cool.
12. Favorite season.
I’ve enjoyed all the seasons. Don’t have a particular one I would pick out as being my favorite.
13. Do you follow the cast/show on Facebook or Twitter?
I follow the show on both Facebook and Twitter. I think I follow Gabriel and Patrick on Twitter.
14. Which of the characters would you like to meet?
Harvey or Louis Litt. Louis is one interesting character. He can cause a mess sometimes but he means well.
15. If you could meet any of the actors, who would it be?
It would be Gabriel Macht (Harvey).
16. What lesson(s) have you learnt from the show?
I’ve learnt that knowledge is indeed power and ignorance isn’t bliss when it is being used against you. It’s always good to build strong personal relationships with people you trust at work so they would have your back when you step in muddy waters. Loyalty is priceless. Law is a smart game; those with the fast moves win the case. When you need a lawyer, better get a good one.
Thanks for reading. Are you a fan of Suits as well? What do you love about the show? Kindly share with me.
