AFTERBUZZ TV – Suits edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of USA’s Suits. In this episode hosts JB Zimmerman, Steve Kaufmann, and Erica Shannon discuss episode 9.
Suits is a legal drama starring Gabriel Macht as one of Manhattan’s top lawyers who hires a brilliant unmotivated college dropout (Patrick J. Adams). Suits is a USA Network drama created by Aaron Korsh that stars Patrick J. Adams as Michael “Mike” Ross and Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter. The series is set at Pearson Hardman, a fictitious law firm in New York City. Mike, once a college scholarship recipient and on his way to becoming a law student at Harvard University, was kicked out of college for selling the answers to a math test he had memorized, ruining his chances of attending law school. Mike instead makes a living as a bicycle messenger, and is convinced by his friend, Trevor, to take part in a marijuana deal. The deal happens to be a sting operation which Mike astutely discovers and narrowly avoids, instead stumbling into a job interview with Harvey, a lawyer at Pearson Hardman and arguably the “best closer in New York City”. Recently made senior partner, Harvey must hire a Harvard-educated lawyer as an associate, as per firm policy. Using his eidetic memory and legal knowledge, Mike proves to Harvey he is undoubtedly the best candidate and is subsequently hired, despite neither receiving a college degree nor attending Harvard. The series focuses on Mike and Harvey as they try cases for the firm while maintaining Mike’s secret.
