Storyline

Even the best lawyer in New York City can use some help. While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City's best legal closers, Harvey Specter. Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory. Written by USA Publicity

Suits 1x01... like its lead, has potential.
24 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Suits is the latest show from the network that brought us Burn Notice, White Collar and a slew of other character based Summer shows. It falls short because it is held to such a pedigree though it has potential all on its own. The show is led by a young, brash but naive genius Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) who spends his life taking entrance exams for other people following his expulsion from school for cheating. Requiring $25,000 to care for his grandmother (in case you weren't convinced he was a nice guy), Mike almost repeats his college disaster by almost selling drugs to cops. Luckily he stumbles his way into a lawyer's (Don Draper-esque Gabriel Macht) associate interviews and entertains him to such a degree he is hired.
