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.
