'Suits' Recap And Review: 'We're Done' - Mike's Back, But He And
After taking a break for the madness that is San Diego Comic-Con, we're back with Suits, and there's just as much chaos going on over here. With Mike getting fired from Sidwell Investment Group, Rachel having made out with Logan, and Forstman hanging around like that creepy dude at the end of the street, nothing is easy for anyone even though the whole takeover battle is now over and done with.

Mike comes home and wallows in his guilt, telling Rachel, "You don't even know what I've done." That makes her hesitate, since she could say the same thing to him, but she does her best to comfort h...

Don’t Move To New York City Based Solely On What You See On TV: A User’s Guide

July 28th, 2014 2:00pm EDT
Don’t Move To New York City Based Solely On What You See On TV:
As a born and bred New Yorker, I’m drawn to shows about my city, taking comfort in the familiar sights and settings; yet I often find myself asking, “Did the writers of some of these shows ever step foot in Manhattan?”

I can shake off the inconsistencies, but I sometimes wonder about all the people saving their babysitting and paper route money hoping to someday move to the Big Apple hoping to mirror the glamorous life seen on the small screen.

Hence, a guide to separating fact from fiction:

‘Smash’ only lasted two seasons, but it was long enough to get your hopes up that moving here wo...

The Suitless, Savvy Women of 'Suits' & Their Unrealistic Fashion Proclivities

The Suitless, Savvy Women of 'Suits' & Their Unrealistic Fashion
“Do I have anything to worry about?” I asked my husband, Neil, who is a partner at a Manhattan law firm. We were watching ‘Suits’ and Pearson Specter’s Managing Partner “Jessica” (Gina Torres) had just shimmied into a colleague’s office early in the morning wearing a tight, knit, off the shoulder dress that some of us would probably only don for a late dinner. Not only was it slinky, it was white. Aside from my wedding day – and the occasional T-shirt, I don’t wear that color. There would be ink and/or coffee running down the front of it by lunchtime.

“Do attorneys at your firm dress like ...

'Graceland's' Jamie Gray Hyder: Rest Of Season 2 Is 'A Whirlwind
Jamie Gray Hyder is keeping things interesting on Graceland. The True Blood actress plays Lucia Solano, the sister of Carlito Solano (Erik Valdez) and daughter of the head of the Solano drug cartel, who doesn't know that Johnny (Manny Montana) is actually an undercover agent. We caught up with Jamie last Wednesday to talk about her Graceland experience and how it stacks up against playing a werewolf.

"What I love about this part - and something that's super important to me - is to make her a real person and not a caricature of herself," she told us. "[Lucia]'s got such a cool, complicated ...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Pound Of Flesh' - Rachel Pays The Pri
In this week's episode of Suits, we witness the metaphorical eye of the hurricane. While Mike and Harvey find themselves able to get along for a brief while, everybody else's machinations make that truce short-lived before an even bigger wedge is driven between them, and Rachel finally cracks under the pressure. It raises an important question: how much can all these people take? Or did everyone finally pick a fight that nobody can win?

Rachel is woken up by the buzzing of her cell phone; it's Logan. She ignores the call (avoiding him after last week's near-kiss), but then realizes that Mi...
