Just when you thought you have had all the fun you can watching USA TV shows comes a new one that is threatening to displace your old favorites. The pair of likeable quirky lawyers on Thursday nights premiere of “Suits” have wiggled their way into our hearts from the first moment. The show goes off the formula that seems to be part of most of the other successful USA original programming by being a lot less silly and slightly more believable in some ways. The people are all beautiful of course but not too beautiful and the people are mostly seriously flawed.
The pilot introduced us to the brilliant mind type of guy Mike Ross who ran into some hard times after making a stupid move in his first year of college and being kicked out. He’s been taking tests for money including the bar exam and has no trouble passing it for his less brainy customers. His grandmother who raised him after his parents died is in a nursing home and about to be moved to a state facility if he can’t come up with $25,000. He agrees to deliver some drugs for his buddy but realizes that its a setup and the buyer is a cop. He narrowly escapes and accidentally ends up at the Harvard Law interviews that Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is conducting to find a new associate. Ross is the most clever guy Specter has seen in awhile and hires him knowing that he has no law degree but has the kind of drive and intellect his firm has been looking for.
Resident mean senior partner Louis Litt is played by Rick Hoffman whose performance in “Cellular” as the sleazy lawyer probably helped land him this role. He’s simply perfect.
The fans on Facebook were pretty excited about this show too. Here are some comments from the new fans
“Suits is an instant hit!!! I hope this show is a success, I am already hooked!!”

“Within the first 5 minutes I fell in love with it!”
