Sarah Rafferty: Meet TV's Top (and Most-Talked About) Assistant

August 16th, 2012 11:15am EDT
Sarah Rafferty
They say you never know what you've got until it's gone. That could apply to USA's Suits: ever since complex, sassy and deeply loyal assistant Donna Paulsen was fired from Pearson Hardman, the audience has been up in arms and the series hasn't been the same. It's not hard to see why Donna has captured the hearts of Suits fans and fans of good TV alike.

She's played by Sarah Rafferty, one of television's top actresses.

The role of Donna has brought plenty of deserved attention for the veteran actress. It's the part that many women would kill for: a great wardrobe, plenty of sharp dial...

'Suits' Recap and Review: 'She Knows' (2.01)

June 14th, 2012 10:35pm EDT
Suits
Suits left us with a near-perfect season finale. It's a difficult act to follow up a great episode - but damned if this show doesn't come back with an equally fantastic second-season premiere.

As we rejoin Mike, he's nervous as hell because he's been invited to dinner by Jessica. He's convinced that means she knows his secret, until Harvey tells him that each of the last five senior partners was taken to dinner by Jessica when they were first-year associates. "We can discuss the prom at recess," Harvey adds, more interested in a pending merger he's working on.

Flash-forward: Mik...

The 11 Best From 2011

December 31st, 2011 11:00am EST
Southland
2011 was a fantastic year for entertainment. Here are my eleven favorite things from the year that's about to wrap, in chronological order...

1. Southland, TNT

(Season 3 began January 4)

I have to admit that I didn't keep up with TNT's gritty Los Angeles cop drama as much as I would have liked; it fell victim to sharing Tuesday nights with three other shows on my watch list. Yet when I did find time to catch it, I was no less than impressed every time.

There's been talk about the show's TV-MA content (allegedly the reason that NBC axed it), but the real talking point should be the st...

Gabriel Macht: The Smartest Actor On Television

December 1st, 2011 11:00am EST
Suits
Gabriel Macht is a genius.

It isn't in the conventional sense. Measuring him by his IQ - whatever that may be - wouldn't do him justice. Neither would examining his lengthy filmography of over twenty years. Yet spend a few minutes in his company, and it becomes quickly apparent that he is brilliant. It's in his verbal acuity, which would make many professional writers envious. It's in the thought he gives to even the most casual of conversations. He's just plain smarter than you or me.

He's not the type to need to prove that to anyone. Yet with the success of USA Network's original...

Q&A: 'Suits' Star Patrick J. Adams Returns To The Stage In '9 Circles'

November 10th, 2011 11:00am EST
Patrick J. Adams
You know him as Mike Ross on USA's new hit original series Suits. As fantastic as he is on that show, that's just one part of what the multitalented Patrick J. Adams is up to. He's currently on stage starring in the Bootleg Theater production of Bill Cain's 9 Circles, extended through November 19.

And in January, you'll see him in an ensemble cast including Dustin Hoffman in the HBO horse-racing drama Luck, written by David Milch (Deadwood) and directed by Michael Mann (Heat).

Whether it's breaking new ground as the star of a TV series, starring and producing in a play, or fitting ...

'Suits' 1.12 'Dogfight' Review

September 10th, 2011 3:21am EDT
Suits
The last four episodes of Suits have been the best scripted TV I've seen all summer. The accomplishment also raised my expectations for the season finale - expectations which were met in an hour that seemed to slide the last pieces into place.

Picking up where "Rules of the Game" left off, "Dogfight" sees Harvey try to free the innocent Clifford Danner (Neil Brown, Jr.) from prison, while Mike tries to keep a handle on his messy personal life. One of them succeeds, and the other, not so much. What that gives us is an episode that pays off last week's plot development in fine fashi...

'Suits' 1.11 'Rules of the Game' Review

September 1st, 2011 11:06pm EDT
Suits
Suits, you are a crafty little show. Last week, you showed me where your characters were heading; this week, you showed me where my favorite has been, and yanked pretty damn hard on my heartstrings besides. I didn't know I liked you this much until you punched me in the stomach. Ow.

Harvey - who makes one of the most awesome entrances in my recent memory in this episode - is reunited with his former boss, Cameron Dennis (the underrated Gary Cole). The chummy meeting reveals what was apparently a secret: that prior to joining Pearson Hardman, Harvey was a district attorney. When h...

Q&A: 'Suits' Star Gabriel Macht Digs Into Harvey Specter

September 1st, 2011 4:15pm EDT
Suits
Manhattan attorney Harvey Specter may be a piece of work, but that just shows how excellent Gabriel Macht is at his job. The Suits star has all of his alter ego's brain and none of the...well, ego. In fact, he's one of the most endearing, articulate and thoughtful actors I've ever had the pleasure of speaking with. As we enjoy the last two episodes of season one (beginning tonight at 10 PM ET/PT on USA), I had the pleasure of talking with Gabriel about what's upcoming and what he's taken away from playing summer TV's most intriguing character.

(SPOILER ALERT: This interview does revea...

Summer Lovin': Two New Summer Shows To Love

August 31st, 2011 3:00pm EDT
suits
There’s nothing I love more than being swept off my pop culture-lovin’ feet by a new television series. For this television-aholic, it feels like being given an invitation to an exhilarating alternate reality, and I have this lovin' feeling for two summer shows. I worship them so much that I’m not even obsessing about the impending start of the fall season (Kidding, less than three weeks, people!).

Here are two shows that I’m head-over-heels for. One is a sophisticated legal drama set in the core of the Big Apple, another is a guilty-pleasure reality show about a real basketball wife.

'Suits' 1.10 'The Shelf Life' Review

August 25th, 2011 11:05pm EDT
Suits
I liken my relationship with Suits to...well, a relationship. After a long courtship, the show finally won me over last week, and now I'm waiting to see how the second date goes before I commit.

Harvey's tasked with engineering the firing of a senior VP at Pearson Hardman's accounting firm, being that Stan (played by Enterprise star John Billingsley) lied on his resume and doesn't even have a CPA - something that sounds more than a little familiar. It's hard for Mike not to see himself in the good-natured bookkeeper, who quickly suspects a conspiracy when Mike points out that the bac...

The Condemned
An adrenalin-charged action thriller, The Condemned tells the story of Jack Conrad (Stone Cold Steve Austin), who is awaiting the death penalty in a corrupt Central American prison.

The producer films the illegal event, airing the killings live and uncensored onto the internet. Vinnie Jones and Rick Hoffman co-star.
