Whats Hot on TV – Harvey Specter and Mike Ross in ‘Suits’


A while back we started a little something on Movie Markers called “Whats HOT On TV” and “Whats Not So HOT On TV” to help you choose what to tune to on TV and this would focus on different TV series which are currently showing on TV, just got cancelled/put on hold or just got completed.

Just like the last Whats HOT On TV which featured two different series, The River and Bullet in The Face, this one features one of the series i am currently watching (can’t stay watching movies all the time) Suits and why you should consider checking it out…


Starring: Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle
Genre: Drama
Premiere Date: June 23, 2011

While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City’s best legal closers, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). 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.

Mike and Harvey are a winning team. Even though Mike is a genius, he still has a lot to learn about law. And while Harvey may seem like an emotionless, cold-blooded shark, Mike’s sympathy and concern for their cases and clients will help remind Harvey why he went into law in the first place. Mike’s other allies in the office include the firm’s best paralegal Rachel (Meghan Markle) and Harvey’s no-nonsense assistant Donna (Sarah Rafferty) to help him serve justice.

Proving to be an irrepressible duo and invaluable to the practice, Mike and Harvey must keep their secret from everyone including managing partner Jessica (Gina Torres) and Harvey’s arch nemesis Louis (Rick Hoffman), who seems intent on making Mike’s life as difficult as possible.

Why it’s HOT!
The ladies can’t seem to stop talking about this series for only one reason,”the charismatic Harvey Specter (played by The Spirits Gabriel Macht) and his swag” at least that’s how a female colleague once put it whereas the guys amongst other reasons watch it because of the paralegal Rachel Zane played by model, Meghan Markle.

While it’s no Boston Legal which had the amazing duo of Danny Crane and Alan Shore (played by William Shatner and James Spader) tending to different/vast cases and cracking up viewers with their antics, Suits’ characters Harvey Specter and Mike Ross are the closest replacements you would find on TV thus anyone that liked the award winning Boston Legal would like this one to an extent (added you’re not looking for a replica of some sort).

The series has got a serious/witty storyline mixed with a little humor guaranteed to leave viewers looking forward to each episode to see what would happen to Harvey and his protegee.

For those looking for a good legal series to watch or for those simply looking for a good drama TV series then this would definitely be one of those to check out for it has the drama, suspense and “corporate romance” thing going for it so why most people look for in different series.

Suits is currently in it’s second season which would return for the concluding half on the 17th of January 2013.
