Suits (the show) [Jun. 21st, 2012|04:39 am]

I’m watching Suits.

Even though I only started today I can’t actually remember what suddenly catapulted me into watching it. Huh. I have now watched the first 8 episodes (yes marathoning like crazy but I’m on summer break so w.e) and just wanna jot down a few thoughts. (BTW where has this show been all my life...or rather why was I not aware for the past year or so that there's an awesome show about corporate lawyers?)

-It’s easier to watch about geniuses when it’s something like Sherlock. You know…not THAT realistic and even if it is it’s Sheeeeerlock. Here it’s like…wow…some people are actually THAT smart? Also, as someone who wants to be a lawyer and is no where near that smart or ever could be this is like… *hides*

-Despite the above and the fact that both Harvey and Mike are cocky, snobby, entitled dickheads (well…especially/mainly Harvey) this is actually super addicting and fun.

-Mike is getting increasingly less and less annoying. But I mean, I guess he was always ok, because regardless of everything he always had a decent emotional range.

-Ok, I can’t decide how I feel about Harvey. On one hand see above for annoying characteristics. On the other hand, he’s just kinda awesome. And…he has these moments when it’s like “wow, under all of that is actually a pretty decent guy…”

-I feel bad for Louis. He has his issues and he makes his mistakes but…who wouldn’t develop a complex working beside Harvey? I mean, honestly.

-Harvey/Mike. I ship it, yea. But I mean, it’s kinda impossible not to. And while the gen mentor/mentee thing is kinda extra cute from time to time the slash potential there is just way too high to overlook.

-Despite that, I also ship Mike/Trevor. I can’t help it. And I have to say that Harvey/Scott is actually really hot for a canon, het, throw-away paring.

-The girls are alright, not annoying or anything. But I don’t really care. Which means that I really don’t care if Mike and Rachel end up together/hook up. Honestly, the low amount of sappy romance stuff on this show is highly appreciated.

I don't want to say too much because of spoilers (I just started the second season yay~) but still!

I really like this show! It definitely isn't one of my favorites, but it's still pretty fun to watch. I totally agree with you regarding the girls, though. I hate to tell you that the sappy romance bullshit kind of amps up as you go through more episodes and I honestly can't stand Rachel, so that sucks. I actually got in a fight with my sister about the romantic interests here haha.

I don't really ship Harvey/Mike (which is normal for me, since I tend not to slash TV show characters), but it just makes SO much more sense than any of the lame female love interests.

That being said, Jessica and Donna are pretty cool.

I absolutely love Harvey's brotherly instincts towards Mike. I do see them as more brotherly than slashy (though I can see it both ways!), but I'm SUCH a sucker for that sort of familial interactions :3

I really need to watch the newest episodes, haha. All I've heard about it is a keysmash text from a friend, so I figure it gets good haha.

I was all caught up by 2x2 but I've fallen behind again. Can't wait to catch up once I get back to the States.

I do like Harvey and Mike gen. In a way it's even more "awww" worthy, but my slasher goggles are hard to take off lol.

Yea, I noticed that the romance picks up. I don't hate Rachel but I'm not crazy about her. I have also now started shipping Harvey/Donna and I have to say that's the one het paring I'd ship full on, canon or not.
