Review - Suits Season 1 Episode 1 Pilot

Suits is pretty much what one expects from USA these days. It's a tad less light than other offerings, but the setup is similar--guy named Mike Ross has a perfect memory and no degree teams up with guy named Harvey Specter who has a Harvard Law degree. Mike's memory is useful at times, but he doesn't know the ins and outs of the legal world, which is where Harvey comes in.

None of the pilot is anything fresh or exciting, and the other characters get put to the side, though Gina Torres is great as always. But what gives Suits an edge is his best friend drug dealer who Mike ditches by the end of the episode. There is a real sense that Mike is leaving a world completely to enter another, a stark change which is nice in comparison to the normal USA stuff.

Score: 8.4/10
