    I just watched "Suits" on USA and I love it. I like the energy and the outrageousness, and so far, this is my kinda show. I had a similar response to the first "Burn Notice."

    USA Network is really bringing in good show.

    We'll have to see how it does over time. Can it live up to the big-bang of the Pilot in future episodes? Will the characters develop to be likeable and relatable? I hope so.

    What did you think, and how did you like it?

    Thought it was one of the stronger pilot episodes that USA has had. It's still pure USA, but also a little darker than their other shows.

    I really enjoyed it too. This is my kind of show about lawyers, Franklin and Bash seem way too goofy to me.

    I liked it but didn't like Burn Notice. It has that Psych and Boston Legal mash up feel to it.

    I liked most of it, but there were a few things that were strange. The courtroom scene was just too wacky to believe, and not particularly funny either. And hiding a briefcase in pizza boxes in the oven? Who is that supposed to fool? Anyone thoroughly searching a room is going to look in the pizza boxes in the oven (as if it is common for people to store 3 large pizza boxes in a cold oven??)

    I really liked it, but it did remind me of White Collar in quite a few ways.

    I get that! Come to think of it, the quirky "two guy" theme seems to be flourishing these days.

    Yeah, totally like White Collar. Genius young dude that can do anything. A superior who is also awesome in his trade. Not an incompetent handler, but a seasoned pro with experience that can help out his younger genius dude. Same format, different setting. But it works. Same with In Plain Sight. Equal partners. Not just a single Einstein.

    Ridiculous premise with likable characters. Not bad for summer fare.

    I agree, Justen. So long as they maintain unique qualities, instead of becoming "me too" shows. It'll be interesting to see how creative they are in developing their own formula.

    I just watched it and enjoyed it. It is on a SP now. Hope it maintains.

    Not sure if they can maintain the ruthless oneupmanship and snappy patter for more than a couple of episodes.

    Agreed. I watch very few TV shows (mostly news and movies) but I do plan to watch Suits again.

    I don't know. I'll give it a couple more weeks to grow on me. I didn't like any, not a single one, of the characters for the first half hour. They grew on me as the show progressed. I don't like lawyers shows at all but at least this one has comedic touches.

    That law firm must have the worst personnel department this side of CTU. Nobody does a background check on whatshisname? Not with Harvard Law School? Not with wherever he went to college?

    I understand there isn't much warm-fuzzy character development (same as Burn Notice) but the dialogue is good. As ADG said, it's a ridiculous premise, so you must suspend disbelief.

    In reality, any law firm is going to research up the yin-yan and totally vet any prospective associate, let alone a huge and prestigious law firm. And gone are the days when lawyers learn their craft by apprenticeship. Nevertheless, it is a humorous concept.

    Hey, I enjoyed the Pilot, so that's 1 hour and 22 minutes of entertainment for me. More, if they can maintain.

    I liked it. Not yet sure if we're supposed to like or dislike his boss.
