It's really enjoyable. The first two seasons are extremely good. In the show's own words, it's a "dramedy." Don't get me wrong, it's far from a comedy, but it's really funny and makes for some great "light" viewing.

I do think the past season was a touch predictable and some elements have become a touch repetitive, but it could still pick up again next season.

I think you should give it a try.

I have not missed an episode. The Louis Litt Character for me is just amazing. He was again very powerful this year, especially the season finale.

Yup, I loved the shift in Louis from goofy (which don't get me wrong, is awesome and absolutely hilarious) to serious/emotional/no BS in the finale. Interested in seeing where it goes. Louis is definitely the standout of the show for me. You just got Litt up!

RE: Suits?
Yeah, this is a show that improved rapidly in the first series. We began to watch it earlier in the year on Netflix, and gave it up after five episodes as being too lightweight and contrived, the stories being too easily resolved, the characters being cardboard cutout types, with the usual gimmicky tics and accessories.

But somewhere along the first series they found their way, maybe around the sixth or seventh episode, things became a little deeper, less predictable, and the buddy relationship between Harvey and Mike was less far-fetched. They got into longer story arcs and developed things a lot more. It's still, as Broken said, a light show, but it's good now, and we're in season two, the power struggle, and finding it a lot more interesting. And yeah, Louis is a great character, the actor is fabulous, but the cast is very good in this one, all of them handsome (except Louis) and the dames sexy, especially Laurence Fishbourne's missus, Gina Torres...

I couldn't agree more. First 2 series captivated me. I've got the last season recorded and I'm only half way thru. Normally I just go thru episode by episode. But for some reason I'm stuck! Puzzled

Nothing wrong with Gina Torres, but I am totally in love with Donna (Sarah Rafferty) HeartHeart

Can't believe I missed this thread...

I think I might have told tented about it when it premiered. My son and I have watched ever since. The dialogue is often rapid fire and quite good . Good character development over the years, great chemistry, and believable villains most of the time.

And then there is Louis Litt. Snicker

Another great character is Daniel Hardman. Still watching series 2, but the bloke makes Louis look like a virtuous innocent...

He's what I mean by "believable villains". Everything about him makes you dislike him.

Yeah, a well-acted plausible bass turd. I don't think I knew any of the actors in this show from anywhere else. Goes to show the depth of talent available, and how good these shows are at making smart television...

The show is full of interesting characters that you just do not see everywhere. Remember the British chap who had a power struggle with Litt, also let Litt babysit his cat for a while? That guy was brilliant too.
