Review - Suits Season 1 Episode 4 Dirty Little Secrets

"Dirty Little Secrets" is the first episode of Suits which felt like standard USA fare. The previous three episodes had a surprising amount of material not related to cases, covering office politics to Mike's personal matters. Compared to other USA shows, this seemed pretty deep. This week's episode, however, was more or less a regular episode with two cases and not much else. There is little of the mentoring that went on in the previous episode and the show didn't work as well with the split attention.

The biggest thing to come out of the episode was Gina Torres finally getting more to do, as we learn of Jessica's past and her ex-husband. It's not particularly interesting, but it drove the plot forward while providing backstory. I'm not sure if too many people care at this point, but when Mike asks out Rachel on a date for real, she turns him down, telling him she doesn't date anyone in the office.

Score: 8.4/10
