Smoldering. That is the most complete word that describes actor Gabriel Macht as he portrays cutthroat attorney at law Harvey Spector on the show Suits. Then again, even beyond Macht, the sparkling sizzle of heat this show exudes every episode is sweltering. Sexy, sinful and smart, the cast and crew of this sharply written USA Network drama bring their A-game week after week and keep fans on the edge of their seat. Chalk full of hotness and a heaping full of intensity, Suits has you transfixed to your TV and quoting its sensational lines for days. Top notch storylines, hardcore chemistry and acting, desirable characters and more make Suits your never miss Thursday night fixation.
Macht knows how to give as good as he gets, and when he double teams with Patrick J. Adams (who plays Mike Ross), there is no stopping this phenomenal dynamic duo. Powerful and poignant, Adams and Macht have fine tuned the delicate balance of heightened drama, pure adrenaline, and true camaraderie. Adams was previously nominated for a Golden Globe, and by watching his rich performance, it is easy to see why he was up for such a prestigious accolade. And speaking of relationships, the endless cat and mouse game perpetually between Harvey and Louis Litt (played monumentally by the epic Rick Hoffman) is always full of humor, smart cut downs, pop culture references and cunning quips. You do not want to be on Louis' bad side or in his war path, because as he says, "You're going to get Litt Up!" Hoffman can throw a tantrum and lay down a gauntlet that you will never see coming. His swagger and charm know no bounds. The men of Suits pour it on thick and hot Thursday nights and female viewers love every steamy minute of it.
Not to be out done by the men, the high caliber women on this show packs is remarkable. The ladies know how to give a cool slow burn just as good, if not better, than their male counterparts. These ladies use their guile, grace, brains, and brawn to the fullest and can leave a man begging in their wake. Gina Torres helms the law firm of Pearson Hardman as Jessica, a shrewd and calculating ally to Harvey. When she cuts you it is deep, not a flesh wound, and it will leave a lasting impression. Meghan Markle is a standout with her poise, passion and finesse that make her a shining star! The sex appeal and chemistry she showcases with Adams is pretty unparalleled. It has been a constant will they or won't they struggle between characters Mike and Rachel and show fans almost got their payoff reward recently, but in the end were sadly thwarted. The back and forth banter and sparring that these two do is like a sexual game of chess. Each one keeps the other in constant checkmate. Not to be left out is the effervescent and elegant charm of Sarah Rafferty with her character Donna. Donna speaks her mind and she is not afraid of any repercussions. She is Harvey's right-hand lady and she never backs down from a fight. Rafferty is a fan favorite for her ballsy performances, stunning beauty, and her fierce attitude.
Heart pounding drama plus dynamic writing make Suits not your average program. The writers constantly up their game by providing levity, depth, and hardcore situations that keep viewers perpetually captivated. You can't turn away from your television screen because any moment missed of an episode may be very well the most profound, exhilarating or jaw dropping. Richly developed plot lines and charismatic characters that suck the viewer in to caring about them and the lives they lead are all a part of the core of this outstanding show. USA Network knows how to cultivate programs and talent that provide star power and mega watt intensity. Suits is a pretty poison that makes for television at its very finest and always a deadly pill to swallow. It's a dog eat dog world out there and the team of Pearson Hardman are ready to take a big bite out of it all. If you're in their path of destruction, heaven help you, because this dynamic group doesn't know the meaning of the word defeat.
Suitors (fans of the show) never miss a minute if this devilishly smart program and new viewers shouldn't either. Characters and storylines will set you ablaze and only add fuel to the smoky fire that Suits creates week after week. If you are looking for a program that will have you hungrily salivating for more, then suit up and be ready for a thrilling roller coaster ride of emotions, anxiousness, sexiness, and determination. This is show is not cooling down any time soon, so if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
