Dave…Suits is back and entertainingly sharp as ever.

27 Jan

Imagine you finally got to a point in your career where you can afford a hand tailored suit, you head for you appointment at one of the many fine gentlemen tailors that inhabit the vicinity of Saville Row, London.

There you choose from the finest selection of clothing material available to a discerning gentleman anything from heavyweight Scottish tweed to the best French Serge. Then you get your fittings  measurements taken in places where you’d never thought you would be measured.

The end result a fine piece of tailoring, smooth, suave and debonair.  If you made a TV programme in the same way, the end result would be Dave’s legal comedy - Suits.

Season 2 of Suits is back on Dave. When we left it last season Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) had spent the whole of the season being precariously close to exposed as not having attended Harvard Law School, a minimum requirement for the his law firm Pearson Hardman.

With the help of his ultra-smooth mentor Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), Mike’s sheer brilliance  and his almost perfect memory, he had bluffed his way through a whole season but just when he felt safe, the secret popped out.

In the opening scene Harvey is ordered by his Boss Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) to fire Mike or get fired, as she’s discovered the truth about Mike. The dynamic duo of Harvey and Mike  however are not so easily vanquished, and a little bit of luck comes to their aid.

Former partner Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) makes a return to the firm after a five year absence  We haven’t seen him before and the back story is that there is an unresolved rivalry between Jessica and David.  Jessica realises she need Harvey’s help to thwart Daniel’s ambitions and the price is her turning a blind eye to Mike.

With all this going on Mike still has a case to tackle, cue assorted legal shenanigans and high jinks.  Welcome back Suits, we missed you along with the 800,000 or so views the series gets for Dave.
