This past few weeks I discovered the awesomeness called Suits. I have no excuse for waiting this long, I know! I'm ashamed of myself *hangs head in shame*.
This show got under my skin fast, from Donna's coolness, to Mike's ability to annoy Harvey faster than blinking, to Louis Litt's love for cats and his funny, sometimes weird way of looking at things. I love the banter, the constant movie quotes, the inside jokes between characters, the suits (let's be honest, most men look good in a suit, but the men on this show look damn hot in them!). I love Mike's story, even though I'm completely confused as to why he didn't try to enroll in a different college (but since I don't know how the educational system works in the US, I'm going to assume it's something related to either that or money). I love the banter between Harvey and Donna and how Donna makes saucy remarks just to get Harvey annoyed. I love how Harvey proves over and over how loyal he is to Mike and how he protects him even if it could cost him not only his career, but his entire life.
It's been a while since I've seen a show about lawyers and didn't immediately think of Ally McBeal. Not once during Suits did I think of the craziness populating that show. It's so refreshing. I love the actors, the dialogue is pure gold and the music fantastic. The suits are, again, amazing. And some of the women's fashion I've seen on this show is so gorgeous and elegant.
The entire show is great. And I don't think there's one thing that I didn't like. However, there's one thing, a huge, huge thing that I love more than anything else and it's this:
|Harvey Specter's Vinyl Collection|
That's right! Harvey's vinyl collection. Not many people know this about me, but I'll take vinyls over CDs or MP3s any time, any day, for my choice of indoor music player (just like I'd take cassette tapes over CDs and MP3 players in my car, but that's another story). I grew up in the 90s and I remember the years before CDs and MP3 players (at least in my neck of the woods, we were a tad behind with all the technology). And one of my fondest memories growing up was listening to old theater plays (think 40s and 50s) in my bedroom, while playing with dolls or coloring or just being lazy. Or listening to ballet music or old rock records. There's nothing quite like the sound of the vinyl and that noise at the beginning, the surface noise, is glorious and it's like making a promise, a promise of good music.
So when I saw the first two episodes and saw Harvey had TONS of records, I fell in love. It was insta-love, yes, but I couldn't help it. God bless whomever decided to make Harvey Specter a lover of vinyls. Good choice!
Now I'm waiting like crazy for the show to start again, because that last episode was epic! I am biting my nails, waiting to see what Harvey and Mike will do after... well, if you've watched the show, you know what I'm talking about! O____O
