    You're correct (I went to law school several years after graduating undergrad), but that's not the point. The point is that Gina Torres' character claimed to be in a position of authority at the firm even before the Gabriel Macht character ever went to law school. She plucked him out of the mail room and "paid" for him to go to Harvard. He's now been made senior partner. In a real law firm, the amount of time from starting law school to being made senior partner is minimum 10 years, probably much longer. Gina Torres appears to be approximately 40ish. So assuming it's been 10 years since he worked in the mail room, she would have had to be in a position of authority at the firm by age 30. It's theoretically possible, but just not that realistic.

    So just think to yourself that Gina's character looks really good for the characters real age of 54. She has the money to make it happen and many women do look younger then their bio age.

    Two episodes and I'm still digging it. Yeah it's farfetched, but no more than Royal Pains or Burn Notice. I like the interactions between the characters, which are always the highlight of a USA show. The show kind of gives me an LA Law vibe.

    I was sorry to see they went the way of Mike and the ex friend's girlfriend. VERY glad they had him walk away...but I figure that's not done yet.

    "Bad lawyer, good lawyer" Yes!

    Hasn't he walked away each episode so far? Hope this is the last time.

    Yes, but I don't remember if he had kissed her before. Maybe he has and I have forgotten.

    This is one of those shows that is much better than I expected. I thought it would be another Defenders/Franklin and Bash type show but it is not really like those at all.

    It has much more bite.

    This continues to hold my interest. Fast, hard start and it continues to make the mark. Best new show for the season IMO.

    Surprisingly acerbic and refreshing. Lots of ethical dilemmas being solved with hard-headed enlightened self-interest rather than the usual lovey-dovey mush-headiness so prevalent on TV.

    My goodness, that's a lot of adjectives I threw in there.

    Suits and Falling Skies are excellent new shows. The cast is perfect we have made this a must watch on the night it records. That's as high praise as we give. :)

    The show has gotten better as Harvey has become less of a jerk.

    They showed the non jerk side of him in the pilot and I think that may be why I liked it then.

    I keep looking at him and thinking Madmen.

    And Gina saying "and I am taller than you." made me laugh.

    I thought Harvey was a complete and utter a-hole in the pilot. Actually, I thought everybody was a jerk in the pilot. I decided to stick it out though.

    We are liking this show more and more every week!

    Mike needs to let his "friend" crash and burn. That guy is BAD for him.

    I liked Harvey more this week. You can see that even though he is an ahole sometimes, he is loyal to his friends. His friendships just seem unconventional.

    I like how the client told Mike that just because Harvey admitted that Mike exists, that is gushing for him.

    Me too.

    There is really only one true 'jerk' on the show. The rest seem to turn on their jerkiness when they think it will work to their advantage.

    IIRC, we are five shows into the season, and they didn't resort to Mike's super memory this show. I think its good that they are not relying on a gimick.
