“In Suits, one of Manhattan’s top corporate lawyers (Gabriel Macht) sets out to recruit a new hotshot associate and hires the only guy that impresses him, a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout (Patrick J. Adams). Though he isn’t actually a lawyer, the legal prodigy has the book smarts of a Harvard law grad and the street smarts of a hustler. However, in order to serve justice and save their jobs, both theses unconventional thinkers must carry out a charade.”

‘Suits’ is slick, fast paced, tense and brilliantly acted. The New York skyline, glittering law offices and gorgeous attire all exude expensive fees and lifestyles. The series develops convincing charismatic characters with lives that intertwine around personal relationships, legal challenges and renegade naughtiness as they all become embroiled in keeping ‘the college dropout’ from being caught as the imposter that he most definitely is.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It holds your attention and manages to conclude with a palatable finale. It causes one to wonder why the series did not go further than four seasons.

One popular rating internet site “Rotten Tomatoes’ has thus far given it a user rating of 94% out of 100%.
