My girlfriend got this show recommended by a friend, so we started watching it. Boy, I was really in for a surprise with this show. it’s one of those extremely positive surprises you get sometimes out of the blue. I’ve heard nothing about this show before and while watching it and it’s such a shame that it hasn’t grabbed more attention. The show is full of clever scenes, sharp comebacks, intriguing cases and excellent turnarounds.
The series focuses on Mike Ross, a dropout with an incredibly sharp memory. Mike is at a dead point at his life and by coincidence he bumps into one of the best lawyers in New York, Harvey Spectre, he works for a company called Pearson Hardmann. They only hire Harvard graduates, but in the case of Mike Ross, Harvey does an exception and from there the plot unfolds.
The focus of the first season is about securing the survival of the company as well as securing the false pretense of Mike’s employment. The second season focuses more on the struggles of the company against external threats, because of the hostile actions of the first place.
I can highly recommend this show, it might seem a bit over the top, but Mike is played well and the various cases and personalities are fascinating to follow. I could go on about this show in detail, but I would rather not, since I don’t want to go in details, but merely recommend the show!
