8 Reasons you should be watching Suits immediately

When the world is a total mess in every perceivable way, entertainment tends to hand us a blanket of comfort. With box sets like Netflix and HBO, there is a lot of uncertainty. But, you can at least be sure what you are going to watch for the next few weeks. This is where Suits steps in, the dripping swagger, walk and talk drama set in a New York law firm. With 6 seasons and 81 episodes currently, this show gives you a really good time.
Here are 8 reasons you should start watching Suits immediately:

1. Reality and Suits have never met

You’re in the right place if you are looking for an escape from reality. Reality sucks! Everyone knows that. The people of Suits are a lot more beautiful and awesome than the people you know. Most of the chats are inspired from Aaron Sorkin’s movies. 90 percent of the scenes end in either an ultimatum - cue swell of dramatic music. Suits is basically a soap opera with hot actors and a decent locations budget which is why it works!

2. It’s dripping with pop culture nostalgia

Just like us, these TV characters communicate in endless references to their favorite TV shows. You could use these references to compile a must-rewatch or must-watch (if you haven’t watched them) list and block out your evenings for the next few months. Harvey justifies his daytime drinking with a shout out to Mad Men and Louis Litt who “always pays his debts” calls himself a Lannister.

3. It is pretty much like Game of Thrones in Tom Ford Suits

Trade the nipples for tailoring and there's not much to separate the two worlds. There's enough plotting and back-stabbing to make George R.R. Martin weep, and Pearson Specter Litt has seen more hostile takeovers than the Iron Throne. Plus, Varys (Conleth Hill) and Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) actually make an appearance in Seasons 2 and 3 - though admittedly in incarnations more suitable to modern-day Manhattan. If you love Game of Thrones, you will love suits!

4. Harvey Specter is the new age philosopher

The quotable heart of it all is Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) with his spectacular expanse of forehead. His actions and sayings are a handbook of platitudes for life in a dog-eat-dog world. Some of his quotes are:
- “Sometimes the good guys got to do bad things to make the bad guys pay”
- “That’s the difference between you and me, you wanna lose small, I wanna win big”
- “It’s not bragging if it’s true”.

Suits prop up the fantasy that if you “ get your shit together”, “have goals instead of dreams” and “break the god damn wall down” when your back’s up against it, you can be Harvey Specter too. Although you can never have a forehead as impressive as his. Harvey is awesome! Read ahead to find out more reasons to watch suits!

5. The smartest guy in the room is the one with who made the worst life choices

The other half of the Suits’ much-loved bromance, Mike Ross, gives hope to many of the university dropouts out there. He manages to make to partner status at a top law firm (and through 4.5 seasons) without being properly called to task on the major fraud he’s been pedaling with. You can tell yourself that Mike’s an underdog who’s just trying to get by, “Just like me”. But the only problem you’ll have with that is that you don’t have a photographic memory and therefore Mike’s superhuman. He teaches us the value of our choices!

6. When it’s all going down, family steps up!

While it is mostly about law firms and lawyers and things related to law. Suits actually teaches us that in the end, all that matters is family which is somehow reassuring. We go through rough flashbacks of Harvey and Mike and discover that the firm is a lot more to them than just a place of work. As it turns out, the making of it was a family reunion too. Both Gabriel’s father and wife cameoed in the show and Gabriel has known Sarah Rafferty (Donna) for 20 years before they worked together.

7. Nothing is ever simple

The cases they deal with in the show are pretty complex and so are the characters. No character is perfect, but their flaws, mistakes, and misjudgments make them interesting. Characters who could seem like stereotypes are actually a lot more. Harvey Specter for example, on another show we would see him as an antagonist, the successful jerk who we should be rooting against. But in this show, we root for Harvey because we know his story and we see the humanity behind his “cool closer” facade. Suits is a show that will surprise you with its thoughtful twists and turns in both its plot and its plot and its character development.

8. The show’s got style

Everything you need to know about Suits’ look and feel can be found in its fantastic opening title sequence. It’s costuming, especially the titular suits worn by Macht and Patrick (J. Adams) is seductive without trying to be. Suits is one of those rare shows are defined style from the pilot episode and that style can be summed up in one word: cool!
