Sometimes when we are dilemma about our choices regarding particular subject or career option, we look out for guidance. Sometimes that guidance doesn’t help us, because inside us we know what our real passion is, but we don’t have the confidence to execute it. At this very point of life, motivational quote or movie or series help us to regain our confidence level. So to all aspiring lawyers and students of law school, we at LegalDesire suggest you to watch the American Courtroom drama, Suits.
The American television series on legal drama, Suits, has been created and written by Aaron Korsh. Aaron Korsh is the storywriter of famous television series called “Everybody loves Raymond”. The series focuses on Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a brilliant young college dropout, who is recruited by New York City’s best legal closer, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Mike has the special ability of photographic memory, that is he can recreate the scene on the basis of evidence and deduction, and on the other hand Harvey has huge legal knowledge which makes me justice hungry, emotionless and cold-blooded shark. This makes the duo irreplaceable and win-win team.
The series has been first aired in 2011 and till now, 6 seasons have been broadcasted with 82 episodes.
Reasons to watch Suits
a) Aaron Korsh
He has been a spectacular writer, who has created the idea of Suits and characterised them with his own experience as an investment banker in Manhattan during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. In fact, SUITS was originally set in the world of Wall Street, until USA redeveloped it, placing the original characters in the often rigid world of procedural law.
b) The mix of intelligence and law
Two totally opposite characters of the series, one who has in-depth knowledge of the law and other with a photographic memory, trying to deduce the case and bring justice to their clients. This shows the applicability of knowledge and reasoning. They both go hand in hand.
Suits have been nominated for several awards since 2012, with Gina Torres and Patrick J. Adams receiving individual praise for their roles as Jessica Pearson and Mike Ross respectively. Torres was nominated for Favorite TV Actress in a Supporting Role at the 2012 ALMA Awards and as Best Supporting Actress in Television at the 2013 Imagen Foundation Awards, while Adams was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series at the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
d) Character of Harvey Specter
Suits props up the fantasy that if you “get your shit together”, “have goals instead of dreams” and “break the god damn wall down” when your back’s up against it, you can be Harvey Specter too.
e) Suit up right
The series has all influential character which appears realistic and gives an edge to the dressing sense while dealing in the corporate scenario. They dress in the most elegant way matching up with the style statement of the youth. Flawlessly tailored and have a classic cut, with peaked lapels and ticket pocket, modern look with skinny ties and thin lapels. The women in Suits are also dressed to the nines in high-waisted pencil skirts and beautiful jackets.
