Review

Do we need another slick, sharp-talking American legal drama? Perhaps not, but this new one throws a different concept into the mix: one of its heroes, Mike Ross (Patrick J Adams), is a highly intelligent college dropout with a photographic memory who stumbles into a law firm’s hiring process while fleeing a drug deal. Naturally he’s hired. Because the person doing the hiring is the other hero, high-flying maverick Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), who doesn’t want another cookie-cutter Harvard Law graduate.

Most of this opening episode is involved in setting up the convoluted scenario, but it’s still good, snappy fun with the promise of a fine rapport between Mike and Harvey.

Summary

College drop-out Mike Ross becomes the new associate at a Manhattan law firm after impressing boss Harvey Specter with his photographic memory. The newcomer reminds the experienced partner why he went into the profession and the pair quickly become a winning team, but must keep their secret from the other employees. Legal drama, starring Patrick J Adams and Gabriel Macht.
