Have you ever felt like you could do more? Feel like you can have the life you want and the job you want? Well so do Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) from USA Network’s hit series "Suits".
"Suits", currently in their third season, first aired in 2011. The series follows a young highly intelligent, pothead named Mike Ross who happens to have a photographic memory. Interesting concept huh?
Wait, it gets better. Mike makes money by taking tests for college students, but not just regular tests -- We’re talking LSATs and the BAR examinations. With the knowledge of a Harvard graduate who never even went there, Mike gets a job at a very prestigious law firm, Pearson-Hardman in New York. Luckily, his boss, Harvey Spector (Gabriel Macht), one of New York’s best closers, knows his secrets but must go to large lengths to keep Mike’s secret under wraps.
There, he meets a very intelligent paralegal, Rachel Zane, whose aspirations of becoming a successful lawyer are set aside when her anxiety over taking the LSATs take over. In last week’s episode, with Mike’s help, Rachel tried to prove to her father, a very revered lawyer, that she has what it takes to continue the family legacy.
To add to the drama, Daniel Hardman (David Costabile), a name partner, is after Harvey and Mike and out for revenge after being voted out of his company. In the most recent episode, Hardman makes his dramatic return!
Patrick J. Adams’s chemistry with co-star Gabriel Macht makes the show “intelligently, funny, and entertaining”. With co-stars like Gina Torres, Sarah Rafferty, Rick Hoffman, and Meghan Markle, the show has jumped to one of USA’s most-watched series.
Here’s the trailer for the show in case you haven’t seen it.
Do you think Rachel and Mike can make it in the cutthroat New York law firms? Will Daniel Hardman find a way to take down Mike and Harvey?
Make sure to catch Suits on Thursdays at 10pm on USA! And be sure to check out Adams's visit to the YH Studio where we challanged him to a memory game!
