Tv Season Info

"Suits" will launch its freshman season with stars Gabriel Macht ("Love and Other Drugs"), as one of Manhattan's top corporate lawyers sets out to recruit a new hotshot associate and hires the only guy that impresses him - Patrick J. Adams ("Lost") as Mike Ross, a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout. Though he isn't actually a lawyer, this legal prodigy has the book smarts of a Harvard law grad and the street smarts of a hustler. However, in order to serve justice and save their jobs, both these unconventional thinkers must continue the charade. The series also stars Meghan Markle ("CSI Miami"), Gina Torres ("Gossip Girl") and Rick Hoffman ("Samantha Who").

The fun comes in watching the uncynical Adams learn to undercut everyone else's cunning.

Super Reviewer

Typical of the legal drama genre, suits offers ridiculous plot and dislikeable characters, but the acting was superb though.
