    I think Canadians have a different sense of humor from Chicagoans. At least this one.

    What?

    I think he meant that there are an awful lot of villains in this series with facial hair.

    Forget Soloff, Louis should have been fired about 17 times already.

    I'm really beginning to wonder why I am still watching as I watched the last 2 episodes.

    While the idea of Harvey having panic attacks is interesting - it is also very out of character. The ploy of him going to a therapist seems like a pretty predictable dramatic device when writers don't know what else to do. :thumbsdown:

    Question: Do you guys think all the office interiors with the NYC backgrounds is real or do you think they are on a set someplace?

    They shoot the show in Toronto. I'd be very surprised if they actually rented out a floor of a high-rise rather than building that set on a soundstage. I'm not sure how they get the NYC exteriors out the windows. Probably CGI.

    Well they have to do SOME exteriors in Manhattan because I've recognized some of the locations. Although maybe that was in the earlier seasons and they've stopped?

    I think I read that they schedule a couple days of shooting per season in Manhattan for exteriors. But I also know that they could shoot a lot of that stuff on the streets of Toronto and just digitally insert a few NYC landmarks into the skyline.

    You're both right. Canadians *are* different.

    The biggest problem I have with Soloff is that he has completely come out of nowhere and not he's a power player? It's like they created the character just for this purpose. I guess they had to do it that way because unlike a show like The Good Wife, we've never seen any other senior partners besides Jessica, Hartman, Louis and Harvey. Well, maybe we did when Jessica and Hartman were fighting for control of the firm? Was Soloff there then?

    Also from last week's. The whole thing with Donna trying to book The Plaza for Mike's wedding was pretty dumb and I doubt it would ever work in real life. If the point of that was for her to prove to the new secretary that she had stones, they could have done it much better.

    I think a lot of fiances would be willing to change the wedding venue to keep their fiancee from finding out that they had been unfaithful.

    Although I agree that Donna's impersonation of a French wedding planner was silly.

    Every once in a while we'll see all the senior partners together in a conference room but then Jessica goes back to doing whatever she feels like doing.

    I thought what Donna did was despicable. The writers threw the husband's affair in to make her unscrupulous maneuverings seem more palatable. Maybe my mind blanked out at that particular moment but how would she even know the husband was having an affair?

    Because she's Donna. :)

    But really, she called the Plaza and the event planner spilled the name of the couple getting married on that date. Then I'm sure she did some research into the guy and that's what she found out. It's not really that far fetched.

    The far fetched part was that she somehow figured out that some random guy she'd never even heard of before was having an affair. What'd she do, hack the Ashley Madison website? I know it's just tv but the "because she's Donna" explanation falls short for me this time.

    I imagine she somehow got access to his emails or credit card statements (social engineering? friend who hacked in for her?) and figured it out from that.

    Once she had the guy's name, it would be easy for her to hire a PI to track him. Of all the far-fetched stuff on this show, that one didn't register with me at all.

    And you're going to go THAT far to secure a wedding location? I get that she had her heart set on The Plaza, but seriously, that was absurd. I guess there are people who might go that far (Harvey might) but I always thought Donna has scruples.

    Oh great. We're back to Mike doesn't have a law degree.

    I wish the Mike character would just die and end that entire thread.

    I haven't seen the most recent episode yet, but you had to know that was coming when they introduced the Jack Soloff character. Everyone in the firm that is a regular on the show knows about Mike is cool with him, so of course as soon as they introduce a new member of the firm, they're going to have the threat of that person finding out about Mike's background.
