Suits is back for a second season on USA network. What an amazing group of talent from Gina Torres, Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams and Sarah Rafferty.
Premise: On the run from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross(Patrick J. Adams), a brilliant college-dropout, finds himself a job working with Harvey Specter, one of New York City's best lawyers.
Harvey: "I'm not gonna do anything. You're gonna go through those by-laws and you're going to find me a way to get rid of Robert Stensler."
Mike: /Shaking his head/ "No nonono. I have to go see my grandmother. Uh uh."
Harvey: /Eyes widen/ "She dying?"
Mike: /Looks up and down at Harvey, puzzled/ "...? No."
Harvey: /Exasperated stare/ "Cancel on her."
Its considered a comedy drama. Some compare it to a lite version of L.A. Law or even the serious GOOD WIFE. Yet the main character Mike Ross comes off from something like CATCH ME IF YOU CAN or GOOD WILL HUNTING. So his back story gives his character a lot to nourish the view with. We are..after all rooting for him.

But what really is this show? A comedy? A coming of age story? Legal Drama? Just another office story? Stay tuned, there will be plenty of stories for this show this season. You can watch last season's episodes here.
