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

Trivia

At 00:46:51 Mike (Patrick J. Adams) is referencing the movie, The Godfather (1972), when he says: "I feel like Michael Corleone in that scene where that fat guy teaches him how to shoot that gun." And as Harvey (Gabriel Macht) confirmed, "that fat guy" is none other than Clemenza. See more »

A Great Premise
31 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

The pilot episode of the legal drama Suits is a really strong start for the series. The pilot is 80 minutes long which is basically two episodes, that provides the creators a greater chance of creating a solid ground for the series to start of with and they really managed to do just that. This was an excellent made pilot who introduces us to these wonderful characters.

The chemistry is their instantly between the Harvard lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and his new associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). The banter between the two of them is absolute gold and their continued reference of movies is really fun to be a part of. We see both respect, competition and some quirky comments between Harvey and Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres).

The chemistry between the characters is what makes the episode a strong start for Suits. The supposed chemistry between Mike and Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) wasn't there really for me in the first episode but it will most likely built on in forthcoming episodes. Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) really seems like sort of a snake and his schemes going forward is going to be fascinating.

Score: 9/10 (Amazing)
