Darker times now. The law firm's merger with the British is in trouble, a major Oil Company case threatening to bring everything down. Meanwhile one of the firm's greatest assets, Mike Ross, still never knows if he will survive another day. He is a fraud with no legal credentials. Discovery means the end for him and for colleagues who know.

Earlier seasons were enormous fun, some fans regretting increasingly serious themes. Lesser creators would have been sorely tempted to produce season after season of that initial lightheartedness. To their credit, they do not. The series has moved on, brilliantly.

Sixteen episodes. Sparkling scripts, with double-dealing entertainingly rife. Admittedly the romantic storylines are of varying worth, but overall there is much to applaud. The main cast are on fine form, all their characters facing formidable challenges. Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams are great as Harvey and Mike. Rick Hoffman as Louis remains gloriously horrible, but with a surprising softer side (although some may find the cat Mikado sequences tiresome). Sarah Rafferty delights as secretary Donna, so often a step ahead of all (except, this time, for an appalling misjudgment). Gina Torres shines as boss Jessica, steering her ship through troubled waters, not entirely convinced about the loyalty of her crew. Amongst the guest stars are Gary Cole, Max Beesley and Michelle Fairley (she so memorable as Catelyn Stark in "The Game of Thrones").

Bonuses include commentaries, explanatory features, a gag reel. The webisodes are very funny, especially when Louis is involved.

"Suits" remains great, the last few evenings most enjoyably spent.

This shows been building nicely - Season One was good, Season Two was better and this is probably the best year yet. Another corking 16 episodes with this brilliant ensemble.

Plot wise there's a lot going on this year as things get ever more complicated at our favourite law firm as the fallout from the end of Season Two takes hold. There are power plays aplenty with moves and counter moves and plenty of strain on the relationships of many of our central characters - Rachel/Mike, Mike/Harvey, Harvey/Jessica, Louis/Nigel, it's all kicking off. The team still find time to actually contest some cases including bribery, murder, extortion and Michael Phelps. Eric Close is back and the likes of Gary Cole and Max Beesley rock up in reoccurring roles to make life interesting for some of the core characters.

Louis is bringing the comic relief this year and he's bringing it hard and fast, including a key role in a new mock trial (the most trivial but best yet). Things get rather more serious for him later on as the show again showcases it's great strength of effortless changes in tone. In a crowded cast he's my MVP this year but as usual everybody gets a chance to shine and add some layers.

Oh and Donnas still awesome. Next stop, Season Four.

I have read reviews complaining about how this series has not lived up to peoples expectations but as an unwind this is the perfect series to fall into. Watched all three of them and now can't wait for the fourth. The plot changes and character development keep this series entertaining rather than it just being about the law and being bored to tears it adds a better dynamic to stories that would be dull.

Season after season this show just gets better and better. Now the characters are well established, it is great how the story lines can be developed and make it another unmissable episode. With season 4 already being shown in the USA, I can't wait to watch all the box sets over again before that.

Suits really is the top USA drama that has produced over the past few years.

Sorry but the gushing 5-star reviews are pandering to a show that had fantastic potential from the outset but is quickly losing its imagination and edge. Far too much of season 3, and the latter part of season 2 for that matter, is taken up with boring power tussles between the bigwigs and repetitive romantic soap opera between the rest. Where this show was outstanding was seeing Mike Ross, the complete rookie fraud find ways to succeed in the slipstream of Harvey Specter, the ultimate consummate professional. Rachel was Mike's trusted helper and paralegal extraordinaire, Donna would keep Harvey human, Jessica would make the rules and Louis would keep everyone on their toes. Sadly we have reached a point where everyone is blackmailing each other, loyalty is dead, and old characters relentlessly dig up old graves. Cameron Dennis... Travis Tanner... even Harold won't go away!
We rarely see the intriguing mental abilities of Mike anymore, and Louis is no longer the eccentric tyrant, he's the pouting weirdo. Meanwhile Rachel now performs almost no legal duties and simply gossips with Donna, provides Louis someone to talk to and confuses Mike with her constant insecurities.
Bring back the 40-minute bursts of pro bono work, diverse cases and clever loophole manipulation, and lose the dull, complicated corporate takeover nonsense that takes six episodes to conclude. How many times are they going to change the names on the stupid wall?!

I still rated this as 'okay' because they have created some brilliant characters and in places the dialogue is funny and slick. I'm still motivated to see where they are all headed but where I was once unable to stop cueing up episode after episode - far beyond a sensible bedtime, I'm now getting to bed, and watching the next one when I feel like it.

Hooked!! Caught up with Season 1 and 2 very quickly, love the film references, the script is clever and as sharp as the Suits! The two main characters, Mike and Harvey, play off each other brilliantly. The story lines and power plays are superb.

Totally recommended!!

Have just started this new Season (3) and what a roller coaster ride it is already promising to be!
One of our all time favourites and one we expect to watch until it is no more.
Highly recommended.

We bought our copy from bennisbooksales but were initially sent 'Scandal' Season 3 by mistake. However, the problem was resolved quickly and efficiently - just a simple mistake - and we would more than happily purchase from this Seller again.

(By the way, had we not already watched Season 3 of 'Scandal' - we've just finished Season 4 - then we would have kept the miss-delivered copy and re-ordered 'Suits', as 'Scandal' is another firm favourite!!)

I watched season one and was a bit lost in Season two but persevered to the end and it was great. The start of Season three was excellent but because of poor TV reception I missed huge chunks of dialogue and gave up. Amazon streaming didn't have season three available yet so when season four aired on Dave I was out of the loop. These series really need to be watched strictly in order. I've now caught up on Amazon and again was amazed at the quality of acting, dialogue and scenarios presented. Legal talk is not my forte so I follow the show for the characters and storyline. Louis Litt is undoubtedly the star and his excellent comedic timing segues brilliantly into the scenes without it being corny.

Over the course of the first two seasons, Suits has gone from cases of the week to bigger multi-episode cases. That continued with season 3, as did internal politics and power struggle. The result? Another season I couldn't stop watching.

As the season opens, everyone is trying to figure out how to make the merger with a firm in England work. Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) is committed to make it work out while Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is still a little miffed that Jessica didn't take him on as the new named partner.

All that changes when this new partner, Edward Darby (guest star Conleth Hill) drops a new case in their lap. Hessington Oil has been a long time client of Darby's firm, but the current Hessington, Ava (guest star Michelle Fairley) is in major trouble that could cost her the company. Unfortunately, that soon becomes the least of her worries. It also causes problems in the firm with Harvey and Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) clashing over how to handle the case. Harvey's associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) does his best to help out while still trying to make things work with paralegal Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle). And Donna (Sarah Rafferty)? She's always there with a quip and a helping hand to make sure Harvey gets his way.

That story arc pretty much takes up the first 10 episodes of the season, and then the show heads into some new territory for the back 6 episodes. I won't go into that since it involves some spoilers, but they left the characters in a very interesting place, meaning I can't wait for season 4 to start.

And that's the thing with this show. The characters are the key. Even when they are at each other's throats, I can't help but like them. Yes, that even applies to slimy Louis. He's not easy to like, but I have come to care for him as the seasons have gone on. Most of the time, I still love to hate him, but I can at least see his side of things and feel for him even if I want his ideas to be foiled.

The writers do a great job coming up with complications and barriers to keep the characters from getting what they want. It seems that each week, just as it looks like Harvey and Mike have things figured out, they get hit with another set back. I just love watching and trying to guess their next move.

And we can't leave out the humor. While Donna gets all the best lines, the rest of the cast has their moments to lighten things up with a one liner that will make you smile if not outright laugh.

The cast, both regular and guest stars, do an amazing job of bringing this all alive every week. I always feel exactly what the characters are going through as we go along. Special praise has to go to Rick Hoffman who has added the depth needed to make Louis work as a full fledged character and not just a cartoon foil.

All sixteen episodes are preserved in this four disc set. The native wide screen and full surround are wonderful. Extras include deleted scenes, a couple of alternative takes with commentary, two episode commentaries with various cast and crew, and a gag reel. There is also a trio of fun behind the scenes featurettes.

The characters are the real stars of Suits, and season 3 continues the trend. Sit back, relax, and be prepared to be sucked into this great show.
