'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Leveraged' - Mike Crosses The Line
Suits is back after the holiday break, and charging full speed ahead with its usual careful co-mingling of professional warfare and personal conflict. Besides, any time you manage to hire Neal McDonough to be on your series, you're pretty much guaranteed to have an awesome show.

Donna has decided to invite herself into Mike's office to give him a lecture on the events of the last episode. "Don't ever betray me again," she tells him, and leaves just as quickly as she arrived. Her awesome appearance even gets a compliment from her wannabe counterpart Amy. After she leaves, Mike gets called i...

'Suits' Star Meghan Markle Branches Out Into 'More Than Just Rachel'

Meghan Markle
You love her as Rachel Zane on Suits, but Meghan Markle is a whole lot more than just one role. She's showing an entirely different side tomorrow in the Hallmark Channel original movie When Sparks Fly, plus she's got some exciting developments going on off-screen as well. We caught up with Meghan on Thursday to talk about the flick, whether she's experiencing newfound fame, and of course, what's going on with her day job.

Considering that there were just two months between the season three finale and season four premiere of Suits, where did Meghan even find the time to take on another proj...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Two In The Knees' - Mike's Past Haunts Everyone

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Two In The Knees' - Mike's Past Haunt
Business is now definitely personal on Suits. After setting up the prizefight between Harvey Specter and Mike Ross, and then establishing the battle over Rachel Zane between Mike and her ex-boyfriend Logan Sanders, the third episode of season four smashes both those things together and creates a messy battleground that's both painful and jaw-dropping to watch.

It's still a rough time to be Rachel, who's having a hard time balancing law school, the uber-case, and Mike, who wants more attention from her, as well as some personal information. He asks her if she loved Logan, and who ended thei...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Breakfast, Lunch And Dinner' - Rachel Becomes A Problem

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Breakfast, Lunch And Dinner' - Rachel
Suits returned last week with the battle of Mike Ross vs. Harvey Specter - but in actuality, it's not only that, but Mike vs. his not-so-idealistic new boss Jonathan Sidwell, Mike vs. his girlfriend's latest issue, and even a little of Mike vs. himself. You can't say this show ever skimps on the challenges it puts in front of its characters.

Speaking of Mike, he's sulking "about last night," meaning that this episode takes place almost immediately after the season premiere. He claims that he's okay with Rachel working with her ex-squeeze Logan Sanders, but he's doing it in that way that wo...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Three-Two-One Go' - Mike Challenges Harvey

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Three-Two-One Go' - Mike Challenges H
Suits didn't just throw the TV rulebook out the window, but set it on fire first and then scattered the ashes somewhere. With its season premiere, the show proves yet again why it's unequivocally the best program on television.

After a slow opening - the montage does little plot-wise except to tell us that almost everyone is getting laid - we find Mike at his new job with Sidwell Investment Group, making a pitch to Walter Gillis (Michael Gross, from Family Ties and who we'll always see as Elise's dad from Dan Vs.), to sell his company's DVD distribution centers. "You don't do this, you may...

Rick Hoffman On 'Suits' Season 4: 'I'm Having A Blast'

June 11th, 2014 12:15pm EDT
Rick Hoffman
Suits is returning tonight with a top-notch season premiere - and before we get too ahead of ourselves, we recently asked series star Rick Hoffman for his perspective on what's ahead, as well as what he thought of the turbulent way his character Louis Litt ended the third season.

Louis got a particularly rough break at the end of the third season, as the episode "Heartburn" saw him suffer a likely long overdue heart attack, then become engaged to longtime love Sheila (recurring guest star Rachael Harris), only for her to break off the engagement when they disagreed over whether or not to s...

The Top 10 Television Lawyers

The Top 10 Television Lawyers
In honor of the return of Suits - which features Harvey Specter, the best attorney currently practicing on television - we're recognizing our Top 10 Television Lawyers. Legal dramas are a staple on the small screen, and they've given us some fantastic litigators over the years.

Our list has only two criteria for inclusion: 1) That the character must be a practicing lawyer. No characters who just have law degrees, retired lawyers, or ex-lawyers. During the run of their show, we have to have seen them in the courtroom.

2) The characters are ranked by who we'd most want to represent us in co...

'Suits' Season 4 Preview: Beauty In The Breakdown
SPOILER ALERT - If you're not caught up through Season 3 of Suits, or don't want to know anything about the upcoming Season 4, stop reading now. This preview references plot points from the end of Season 3 and looks ahead to Season 4.

This Wednesday, it's graduation day for Mike Ross.

Suits has always been about the education of Mike (deserved SAG Award nominee and likely future multi-award winner Patrick J. Adams), who may not have gone to Harvard but has spent the past three seasons learning what it means to be a lawyer, as well as a mature adult. Yet in the season three finale just two...

'Suits' Recap: 'No Way Out'

'Suits' Recap: 'No Way Out'
Another brilliant season of Suits comes to a close, and we get all verklempt about not being able to enjoy and disassemble and be moved by such a great show every week. And while the show didn't deliver the ultimate bullet that it could have, it still does a fine job - perhaps the more appropriate job - of pushing all its main characters forward into a new world.

Harvey's still in a brooding mood after the events of last week, which this episode follows almost immediately on the heels of. As he and Donna drink to Mike's change of heart (after Harvey calls Donna out on not being entirely be...

5 Writing Lessons We've Learned From 'Suits'
Tonight is the Suits season finale, wrapping up its third season as the best show on television. One of the biggest reasons it has that title is the writing. Series creator Aaron Korsh and his staff are teaching a master class on how to write TV every Thursday night. Here are five writing lessons that we've learned from watching Suits - and be sure you tune in tonight to learn even more about how television should be done.

Lesson No. 1: Don't BS your audience. It's so hard to really get sucked into TV drama anymore, because most shows don't actually follow through on the threats they make....
