Even the best lawyer in New York City can use some help.
While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City's best legal closers, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory.
Mike and Harvey are a winning team. Even though Mike is a genius, he still has a lot to learn about law. And while Harvey may seem like an emotionless, cold-blooded shark, Mike's sympathy and concern for their cases and clients will help remind Harvey why he went into law in the first place. Mike's other allies in the office include the firm's best paralegal Rachel (Meghan Markle) and Harvey's no-nonsense assistant Donna (Sarah Rafferty) to help him serve justice.
Proving to be an irrepressible duo and invaluable to the practice, Mike and Harvey must keep their secret from everyone including managing partner Jessica (Gina Torres) and Harvey's arch nemesis Louis (Rick Hoffman), who seems intent on making Mike's life as difficult as possible.
Anybody else catch this last week?,I'm really enjoying it,much different from the typical USA network shows.

I've liked it a lot. Have to suspend belief on a some things (find it hard to believe the partner would dump things without a little more direction/supervision to the new associate & associate taking lots of liberties in the relationship before he has truly proved himself) but seems like it is well written and will be a keeper. Also, need to decide whether the partner is likeable or not. Sometimes they make him likeable and other times he is an rump.
