THE POPE HAS LEFT THE BUILDING BUT THE SHOW MUST GO ON
We’re living in fascinating times. There are times when I think the subject matter of the stuff I watch is extremely timely but lately I’ve been feeling that there is more mediocre than good.

FRESHLY SUITED TO WIN
Here’s a new USA show in its freshman year. You didn’t think I’d miss this one, did you? Despite being highly intelligent and possessing a photographic memory, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) has had to drop out of college due to financial issues. His dreams of becoming a lawyer is thwarted when he is forced to take odd jobs to support his ailing grandmother. He makes a living by taking tests for other people, particularly the LSATs (Law School Admission Test). Harvey Specter (Gabriel Mach) is the top attorney at a top law firm who has just been promoted to senior partner. However he is forced by company policy to find an associate and through an accidental interview, he becomes impressed with Mike’s quick wit and encyclopedic knowledge of the law.
