Critic Reviews for Suits Season 5

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

What's enjoyable about "Uninvited Guests" is that it builds on what's come before instead of having the characters go through redundant character beats.

Suits returned with one intense ride.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Mike representing himself worked out far better than I thought it would. Not only did it show what a competent attorney he was but it also gave him a chance to show his heart in his closing arguments.

Nov 12, 2018 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

Gabriel Macht successfully let the audience in into a more vulnerable, more damaged layer of Harvey - someone so hurt that he could not even operate even when the world depended on it.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

One thing Suits has done so well is establish the friendly woman-to-woman relationship between Rachel and Donna.

Jun 25, 2015 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

Suits' best season to date.

Oct 20, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

"25th Hour" was a fantastic ending to a fantastic season.

Nov 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Well played, Mike, well played; but will it hold up?

Apr 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Sometimes something comes along that sounds like the streaky part of the toilet paper and it manages to transcend the suck and be wonderful..."Faith" falls into this category.

Apr 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Suits is back - bigger and better than ever in season 5. It returns with big cases, earth-shattering revelations, sneak-attacks, passionate love affairs, ferocious rivalries, and deep bonds of affection amongst the lawyers of Pearson Spector & Litt.

Jul 8, 2015 | Full Review…

If you were hoping the show would deliver on the insanity that was the season four finale, then you're most certainly in luck heading into season five.

Audience Reviews for Suits: Season 5

  • Nov 21, 2016
    While not as great as the previous season, it was still intriguing to watch how things will play out, though the "twist" was too predictable. I am also aware of the increasing use of swearwords that serve no reasons at all, what were the writers thinking to make these people so vulgar? And Markle still cannot act, otherwise Torres was fantastic and Macht delivered a great performance.

    some episodes were good some were not and became a soap opera instead of a lawyer drama
  • Mar 22, 2020
    Astoundingly good, even five seasons deep. My second favourite season thus far. Engrossing plot, outstanding acting all while keeping a good amount of humour involved. Gabriel Macht still the main man, but he is closely followed by Patrick J. Adams, Rick Hoffman & Co. Special credit to Meghan Markle, whose acting has improved dramatically since S1 - this is her best up to this point. Very intrigued to see where S6 goes for 'Suits'.
  • Oct 13, 2019
    Episode 10 of season 5 is the best episode of "Suits" if you ask me. It doesn't stop for a second and it never stops touching. The season itself doesn't start the best but slowly it's getting better and better.
  • Sep 05, 2019
    I think, it's the best suits season. 10/10!
  • Jun 26, 2019
    Spaziale, stagione fenomenale, e l'episodio 15 è semplicemente perfetto
  • Mar 07, 2018
    SUits is unlike any other show i've ever watched, and i have no clue what it is about this show, but once you start watching it's hard to stop.
  • Mar 15, 2017
    Wondeful series, well-cast, beautiful written and acted.
  • Jan 18, 2017
    I must say this is one of my favorite shows, I will put it in the same category with Criminal Minds which i LOVE. I love the thrill and the cases introduced in every episode with the spice of their everyday life and drama..I cant distinguish the greatness between the seasons, at the end of each one I cant wait for the next.
