i dont understand the complaint about the sex scenes... i love the show the way it is.
This is a series nothing short of a success. The dynamic between characters is refreshingly marvelous (Kudos USA network). Gabriel Macht's ability to connect with featured guests is precisely what makes him A-list material for an actor. Though deemed "racy" by some, and perhaps crushing for the feminine audience that can't help but be smitten by the intriguing and provocative senior partner (Harvey)- the scene is a window to Harvey's mystifying character that we DESPERATELY needed an entry to. The attempt is commendable and rather appreciated in this end of the court...though I confess I was not emotionally equipped for the introduction of a woman capable of evoking passion,compassion, and slips from such a well-groomed character as Mr. Specter- erroneous! (kidding)
The script was full of holes. For one, Rachel didn't just plan to cheat, she discovered his secret by having actually set that ball in motion.
Jessica called Mike on his softness and naivete -- I didn't buy it. Did everyone already forget it was his "softness" that won the client Louis could not land? Harvey's advice to "play the [people]" includes juries and judges -- or should have. How could Jessica not have appreciated the potential of a good closing and not wanted to at least observe the possibilities? Wasn't that the point of a mock trial, to observe the associates in action? A powerful closing would have shown the partners, the whole firm, a side of Mike, a talent, a winning ability, that the more cutthroat associates -- not to mention Louis and yes, even Harvey -- lack. We've seen Harvey's ability to play the people and Jenny had told Mike to be himself, to use his natural charm. I don't believe he'd have simply given up. He should have reapproached Rachel gent
The show is a legal drama, Mike's not just gonna be fired or quit the firm so his "kind of person I want to be speech" while nice was immaterial. Mike should not still be so naive. The writers could also not have Harvy and Mike's plots contain the same themes as much.
Donna's hilarious, she needs to be on more.
Mike and Rachel have great scenes whether amicable or antagonistic. I'd rather no Jenny, and Mike and Rachel as friends because I'm tired of the romantic melodrama too many shows contain.
Kobayashi Maru! Funny!
I really like this show and was disappointed that this episode had the sexual scenes. I'm concerned that if it continues it will be added to my long list of immoral shows I can no longer watch. I hope it does not go that route.
Like this show a lot.
Casual hook ups? not for me but to each their own........
And as already mentioned this is CABLE tv and not network tv........if your offended by the sexual content ..turn the channel.....but you know you won't...
Mike should not have hooked up with Trevor's girlfriend, Jenny. I do respect the advice that she gave Mike. I think that in a cutthroat world, Mike is setting himself apart from those at the firm. He has a kind heart. The others should not have scolded him for that. Didn't Jessica have a soft heart towards her ex-husband? It is a cold and lonely place at the top at this law firm.
didnt really have a problem with the sexual content but yeah I think it was a few episodes early lol. What did throw me thou was mike's hookup; he keeps saying he's not like all the other lawyers dat care more bout the money than the clients but he does realise he's acting like a typical player with rachel/susie(her names not susie is it?) and yes I get dat he doesnt want to be seen as dat kind of lawyer but really? he had to go easy on her because it was getting personal, man up mike jus hope to god he wouldn't do dat in a real trial, i'd like to see him win a case, any case on his own without help from harvey or rachel. we get it- little fish big pond but you asked for it mike so man up and take control....
moving on, I gotta say the pic of louis on his desk was jokes
I didn't feel the review had an issue with sex scenes in general. But this show (like White Collar) has really made an effort to develop a camaraderie between Harvey and Mike and to show the growth of the two of them as characters. Other than the pilot, the sex on this show has been practically non-existent. So to suddenly have an episode full of it does seem either odd, a ratings ploy or at the very least a few steps ahead of the rest of the plot. It's a fair question to wonder what sort of show Suits is going to be...the romantic lives of the characters or the Harvey/Mike story? That said, I actually didn't mind the Harvey sex at all and only had slight issues with Mike's. I felt like Harvey's story was to further the point made in the pilot, that he's a bit of a womanizer and not into commitment (or so he'd like to believe). Also, Harvey pointed out that feelings can be damned if it comes to winning a case, a stark contrast to Mike's code of ethics. Mike on the other hand seemed odd
I don't think the reviewer meant that the network should not show sex scenes. I think it is more about whether this is what we want to see in this show as it is more about the bromance and male friendship. Not so much about romantic relationships as a distraction.
Also when you said that Mike and Louis were placing bets, I think you meant to say Harvey and Louis. You should proofread.
Dana Scott played by Abigail Leigh Spencer
I think when you say 'Lisa' you mean 'Donna', or did I miss something?
No Dana Scotty.. They called her Scotty I wanna know who that was
Donna. You do mean Donna, don't you?
Not to sound too much like an ass, but that actually was a legitimate question. Had to step out at some point during the episode, so I'm not sure if I actually missed something.
And I'm not sure we're talking about the same USA Network here. This is the USA Network whose summer headliner, "Burn Notice", has a major supporting character explicitly brag about his current sugar mommas, turned a full contact brawl between the male and female leads into a sex scene, and takes every chance to use the, ah, unique color of it's setting in Miami to show us lots of shots of some very beautiful women. "Covert Affairs", one of it's star sophmore series, opened this season with a close up shot of Piper Perabo's ass, I kid you not, and began another episode this season with a good two minutes of her running around in bra and panties. Necessary Roughness opened with two of the main cast meeting and (drunkenly?) hooking up in the first half hour of the show.
Might be just me, but the
Whats the name of the actress who played scott(Dana Scott)
Speaking as an American, I really don't understand the cultural double standard we have between showing sexual content or profanity in media and showing violence (in all its blood and gore) in media. Is sexual content (and the sexual content we saw in this episode were about as tame as you can get before leaving sex and approaching "A chaste kiss") somehow worse than watching people die horribly from a sucking chest wound, or get pulverized and torn to pieces by an explosion? We have a classic kid's movie where one major character watches as his father is horribly trampled to death, and the villain is torn to shreds, but have people hook up casually and that's not okay?
And also, I don't know if I missed something, but who the hell is Lisa? Did a new character get introduced this episode?
