Dave…If you’re not watching Suits on Dave I want to know why?

7 Mar

If all TV programmes were like Suits I think I would probably never leave my house. Suits started off brilliantly on Dave last year but has only got better. It is like a fine wine from an award wining vineyard and as time goes by matures into a from just being great to exquisite.

Over the top praise? I don’t think so. A lot of  high concept episodic dramas come to our screen with a single underlying narrative. Recently for instance we had Homeland  with a underlying theme as to whether a prisoner of war had been turned into a terrorist. The challenge for these dramas is sustaining and developing the narrative particularly after a very successful first season.



This is something that Suits has done spectacularly well, the character and plot development has been phenomenal. We have seen the characters develop in believable and engaging ways.  Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) has gone from a infallible legal demigod strutting across the floors of his firm Pearson Hardman to a more humane and somewhat vulnerable man reduced in stature by a change in his fortune as his past coming back to haunt him.

Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams)  the young smart know it all, still smart and still a bit of a know it all but he’s has gradually come to realise  that life isn’t just about what you know but your relationships.

There is Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) smart, sexy and blossoming and she gains higher regard in the firm.  Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) Harvey’s loyal right hand woman finding  that when reputations and careers are at stake there is always collateral damage. Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) so used to be being the top dog at her beloved firm now finding herself in a war of attrition in which losing may mean losing everything she has fought for.

It all seems to be coming to a head. In tonight’s episode we see Harvey narrowly escape a law suit that could have left him disbarred and the firm mortally wounded. The price to be paid though is higher than he might have wanted his friendship with Donna seemingly dead, his reputation as a ruthless focus legal rotweiller torn to shreds. and Jessica in a perilous position as her nemesis Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) attempts a coup d’etat

So the question remains if you aren’t watching  why aren’t you watching? If you missed it you can catch up with Season 1 on DVD. Thank me later
