I'd give it 10....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Suits - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I know the DVD isn't out yet, so this review is a little premature. But I've watched every episode to date (about 5 I think) and (1) I can't praise it highly enough and (2) I can't understand how it's slipped under the radar (probably 'cos it's on Dave) and isn't been raved about elsewhere.
I won't repeat what others have already said - but what I think they've missed is how great the music and cinematography is too. The whole thing is just a joy to watch and the episodes just FLY by.
I'm also impressed by the standard of the writing and the subtexts. In the episode I just watched Mike lost a "faux trial" because his fav paralegal was on the stand and upset and he backed off from "breaking her". Landing him a telling of from the firm's head, Jessica, for being too soft....and disappointing Harvey in the process.
This was juxtaposed with a storyline for Harvey (they didn't interact much in this one) where he had a hot hook up with a girl who was top of his class in Harvard (Scotty) and, realising she was hiding something about the merger they were both on, pulled something out of the bag and beat her in court. She then got fired by her client and told him she was heading back to England to marry a guy who'd proposed to her a month before.
So you had Mike pulling back and deciding a woman in his life was more important than the win - and Harvey doing the opposite. Clever.
Cannot recommend this show highly enough.

Good point about the music. I forgot to mention it in my review and it is awesome. Do you know who does the opening theme tune?

I totally agree about this being "buried" on Dave and missing out on the potentially huge audience it would have enjoyed on the BBC or C4. Still, their loss is our gain. I'm currently watching the repeats on Dave (still as compelling second time round) to whet my appetite for season 2, which is due to start this Thursday, 24 January 2013.
