A Lesson in Badassery

... Or alternately titled: Some Things Never Grow Old.
... Or also alternately titled: You Make Me Want to Be a Lawyer

I never would've been the person to watch an entire series on lawyers. If you know me, you'd know well enough that I have bad taste in TV: I am known to gravitate towards the rubbishy, superficial {at least for normal, thinking folks} shows such as 

Gossip Girl, Glee, Pretty Little Liars, Dirty Sexy Money, Californication, Entourage, and One Tree Hill, where the characters' main cause of concern can be a bit juvenile.

The show has ended its first season and I know I'm so late on joining the bandwagon but it's been a while since I've loved a show as much as I do with this.

When I heard about it, all I knew was that it was a funny and entertaining, so I assumed it was a comedy, especially since I saw this post:

Donna must be everyone's favorite character and I can understand why.

And of course, the most badass of them all, Jessica Pearson, Managing Partner at Pearson and Hardman.

And then I discovered that Suits is really about the world of high-flying lawyers, the importance of making the best appearance, the importance  of being right {or righteous, whatever}, why people judge you according to your suit and why a high five is never done in the boardroom. And maybe in a nutshell, Suits should be subtitled:

How to Be Badass. Harvey Specter {played by Gabriel Macht} and Mike Ross {played by Patrick J Adams, aka my newest TV crush} are two lawyers in the prestigious Pearson and Hardman Firm. Harvey is your quintessential Mr. Big type, non-committal, immaculate in a three piece suit and will not be caught in non-flattering, compromising situation. Mike Ross, on the other hand, is his non-lawyer genius whom he hired when Jessica Pearson told him to hire someone like him.

Lesson #1: First impressions last. You start behind the eight ball, you'll never get in front.

The badassery, howevery, is not limited to the male cast of this wonderful, wonderful show:

 Rachel Zane played by Meghan Markle She's smart. And she's hot.

And Donna, Harvey's assistant, can call him a wuss. I love that bit.

Also, it's nice to see things I actually wear in real life mirrored on TV. These are things I can relate to, very well:

And of course, seeing men in suits for a full hour per episode is something I can spare time for before sleeping every night.

Gabriel Macht introduced to me the concept of the vest.

The changing times may have blurred out the working world's concept of behavior in the workplace, what constitutes a suitable corporate attire and the fact that doing a good job is not the only thing that gets you to the top, but some things ---

they never change. I want to be a lawyer if only for this show. And have a listen to the kickass opening theme:

See the money wanna stay, for your meal.
Don't you really wanna know how it feels?
