No, I’m not suddenly really into wearing suits or any sartorial matter. But I have recently been watching the TV show Suits and y’all…. I’m obsessed. I can’t stop watching!! (Which is sometimes problematic when the dvds aren’t ready for me at the library yet and I have to wait which is very inconvenient!!)
I watched the first season of Suits when it was on the air (so back in 2011) and I LOVED it, but then I got busy and then I moved and got rid of my cable and so I didn’t watch it again. After I recently got rid of my Netflix account and started getting my movies and tv shows from the library, I decided to pick the show back up again. I’m not even fully caught up with the series yet (it’s still on the air, on the USA network!) but there are so many things about the show that I love!!!
Like… the romance!!! All the couples are so fun to watch and I am seriously finding myself rooting for ALL of them!! Even ones that aren’t even officially together. They need to get together. And even ones that if I knew them in real life I’d say “WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU DON’T BE WITH THAT PERSON THIS IS A TERRIBLE LIFE CHOICE” but since they’re fictional characters, I get to say “YAY PLEASE STAY TOGETHER FOREVER AND YES KISS HER!!!!!”
And… the drama!!! I know absolutely nothing about the legal world and what the day-to-day life of a lawyer is like, but this show leads me to believe that it would be filled with DRAMA and corporate battles and backstabbing coworkers!! Some of the characters and the shady things they do have made me so mad… but in a way where I definitely need to keep watching and make sure that they get put in their place.
I should mention the language real quick… even though it’s a “family friendly” show, they sure do say lots of words and phrases a LOT. Like, geez. I’m sure you can think of a different phrase to use, writers.
But back to the good stuff… the clothes!!! All these attractive people are just dressed SO WELL every single day and it makes me want to go shopping for some new work clothes. But I won’t, because I’m a realistic person and I know that I won’t wear pencil skirts/dresses/crazy high heels every day to work. Nope. I’ll just watch them looking fabulous and be happy with that. And the men in their suits look so handsome!
And along with the clothes… the hair!!! These women are giving me serious hair goals. They have the best blowouts every day, and it makes me want to actually try to make my hair look great every day at work instead of my classic front-twist-low-bun that happens at least 4 days a week.
To balance the drama is… the humor!!! This show is actually pretty funny, and it really keeps it nice and light instead of super dramatic all the time like other legal shows (such as The Good Wife, which I still love…)
It has one of my favorite things in the world… when the real life significant others of the main cast show up as a minor character!!! I just think it’s really fun to see them together on screen and then know that they’re married in real life and it just makes me happy.
And finally… it just has really fun characters!!! There’s the con-man that you’re really rooting for, the pompous jerk who you get to watch as his heart of gold comes out, the smarmy co-worker who eventually grows to be one of your favorite people, the sassy redhead who amazes you with her wit, the sweet gal who is the hardest worker on the whole show, the fearless boss who rocks all day every day, and so many more great people!!
Actually there’s one last thing… I saw online that one of my favorite actors Dule Hill is going to be on Suits this current season and that makes me so happy! I can’t wait to catch up so I can see him once again! He was a main character in anther USA show called Psych (it was seriously so funny and great!) and this will hold me over until the Psych movie comes out later this year!!
Have you seen Suits? Do you love it as much as I do? What show are you currently obsessing over?
