'Suits' on USA HD - Page 5

Indeed!

I think they hit a new record for saying Sh*t on the show. I thought Lewis and the recruiter were more interesting than the main plot.

Can't wait to see Louis' reaction to Harvey's hiring the ADA.

Snow killed my SAT signal for a couple of hours until I could get to the dish and clear it off after the snow stopped... unfortunately that was too late to even catch the later airing... I also missed Archer on FX... fortunately both re-air on Sunday morning so I'll be catching them later.

I loved the developing relationship between Louis and the little headhunter, too. I hope we get to see more of her.

Personally I'm sick of Louis. He's fine as an annoying secondary character but the more I see of him the more I FF. He's good as an occasional foil but they are going to the well too often. Seems like an easy out for the writers,and that just amounts to sloppy writing.

I thought last night episode was pretty good. The banter between Harvey and Mike was good. I thought Jessica had some strong scenes. I thought the Louis subplot went two scenes too long. Would have been better if they had ended it at the courtroom file switch. The strength of the show has to personal dynamic, but they really do need good cases to litigate.

As annoying as Lewis is, he is my favorite character on the show. To each his own I guess.

I thought the last episode was probably one of the best of the series. The case was interesting. The personal dynamics were mostly focused on the firm, and surprisingly with show focused on sex scandals and gender discrimination it wasn't about who is dating who. There is sometimes a thin line between a "drama" and a soap opera, and this episode nailed the drama.

I loved Donna smacking Hartman twice. The scene between Harvey and Louis about the deposition was fantastic.

I enjoyed it very much also. It's hard to believe there are only two episodes left in this short season.

I agree that this week's Suits was terrific. The show has learned that its strength lies in presenting the strengths and weaknesses of its characters and not on the crutch too many writers of too many shows rely on, the soap opera of the week. Harvey, Mike, Jessica, and Louis are all incredibly flawed but I still can't take my eyes off them.

Actually, with 16 episodes Season 2 had four more episodes than did Season 1. The 10/6 split in the season with a 20-week hiatus just made it seem like a short season.

Wow, Louis finally showed he is human after all by taking taking the fall for Rachel not getting into Harvard even though his actions had absolutely nothing to with the decision. He really shifted the blame from her hating herself to her hating him when it was really the fault of the Harvard admission process due to the low number of spots available and the massive number of high acheivers applying. That may be the first real compassion we've seen from Louis.

The entire show was excellent as well.

Really looking forward to tonight's episode.

They are really pushing the limits on content tonight. The language and the closing scene were exceptional for basic cable.

Got to say having watched the show from the start, I had a hard time following exactly what was going on with the three cases and Jessica flip flopping sides. I felt like a little more exposition was in order. or maybe I was just too tired to follow all the nuances. Regardless looking forward to the summer season.
post #135 of 226
I mentioned a few shows ago their is a thin line between drama and a soap. I thought the last episode skewed more toward the soap side. I also thought the story was a bit hard to follow. I even rewound because I thought I has zoned out on a section. It was almost like there was a portion of the show that was cut that we were supposed to see. Jessica seemed unusually mean without any reason to be. I like it when they win cases because they are smarter not on the merits of who can out cruel the other.
post #136 of 226
I agree with previous posters that this episode was a bit hard to follow, specifically Jessica's motivations seemed very vague. Maybe if they had dropped the Rachel/Mike sex scene and provided a bit more exposition on Jessica things might be clearer. Still a great show, I do think it's better when Louis is integrated into the A-story as opposed to being a completely irrelevant B-story, especially in a season finale.

Bumping this because the new season is starting up in a couple of weeks. My father recommended this show to me last month and I noticed it on Amazon Prime Only last week so I gave it a shot. Suffice it to say 7 days later every single episode had been devoured by my wife and me. One of the absolute best shows on TV imo. Incredible casting, great acting. Loved every single episode. I will agree that Jessica's motivations weren't made clear enough, and I'll disagree with anyone that says Lewis is an annoying, on non-essential character. He's incredible.

Actually, he's incredibly annoying! wink.gif

Lewis is indeed incredibly annoying, but I can't imagine the show without him.

That's what makes him such a great character! smile.gif
post #141 of 226
He desperately wants to be part of the group, but since he isn't he has to constantly act in his own best interest, which obviously negatively impacts the opinion of him by Harvey and Jessica. I love the guy.

Am I just reaching or is Harvey Specter's name a sly nod towards Mike's character? "Harvard Ghost". I'm probably reading to much into that. I love this show, though.
post #142 of 226
These summer shows on USA: Suits, Covert Affairs, Royal Pains, Necessary Roughness are far better than the shows that are on NBC. I say this because isn't USA a part of NBC/Universal?
post #143 of 226
I have watched all four, but the ones I NEVER miss, either "live" or on DVR, are Suits (my favorite) and Royal Pains, mainly because Divya (played by Reshma Shetty) is so darn good looking.

As long as we are playing the name game... "Mike Ross" is a neat subliminal thing... because Harvey might very well say that he is "my cross to bear"... smile.gif

That's an apt observation... I find myself watching almost literally nothing on NBC... and yet I watch quite a bit on USA and several things on SyFy... so it isn't like they can't spot/create good shows... it is that for some reason they don't seem to want to put the good shows on NBC!
post #145 of 226
I'd hate to see how fast NBC would cancel a gem like Suits if it didnt produce amazing numbers within 2 weeks. I'm more than happy with FX and USA being the home to some of absolute best shows on TV.
post #146 of 226

Like a few others, I came very late to the Suits party.  I read some good things about it and liked the idea of the premise, so I started watching it on Amazon and became hooked.  I just finished the last of the episodes last night and searched for Season 3 info and was happy to find that it is fortuitously starting up again next week.  I'm very much looking forward to it, but will miss the ability to watch as much as I want at one time and not need to wait weekly as I now must.

Interesting season premier. Lots of twists and surprises to come as usual. Glad it's back!
post #148 of 226
Very happy that its back too. This show goes by way too fast. I must say that I'm not happy with some of the relationships, though. I'm sick of Rachel's holier-than-thou attitude, and I hate Mike and Harvey being at odds. They're so much more entertaining when they're together.

Lewis and Donna were great in the little Hitler bit. Also loving Lewis' rivalry with his British counterpart.

This show is too good.
post #149 of 226
On another show, Rachel might be overboard... but consider... Mike has scammed his way into a law firm, didn't go to college, is basically 10-ways illegal... and he gets his own office and everything! Meanwhile, Rachel can't even get admitted to the college of her choice despite being similarly good at her job.

You would be a little pissed off at all that too... wouldn't you?

I'm still a Donna fan, though... not knocking Rachel... but I'm a Donna fan. I also like Lewis. I think New Lewis (the british guy) is an interesting foil too, because it simultaneously allows Lewis to be more Lewisy AND more sympathetic at the same time.

And I as well! She cracks me up with the stuff that she pulls, effortlessly I might add.
