Dear Ladies of Planet Earth,
If your husband bugs you for months on end to please watch Suits on USA with him, you really shouldn’t blindly resist, tell him it’s a stupid boy show about lawyers and be a jerk about it like I was. You should listen to him. You wanna know why?
Exhibit A: Gabriel Macht a.k.a Harvey Specter. GUH.
Exhibit B: Gabriel Macht a.k.a Harvey Specter in a variety of Tom Ford suits that are the best example on TV of how men should dress for biz-ness. Or anything. Because he’s perfect. A modern day Don Draper if you will. But slightly less douchey.
Exhibit C: Donna and everything she says and every face she makes.
Seriously, it’s such a funny, awesome show. The relationship and chemistry between Harvey and his underling Mike Ross is so great and the writing is smart. I am OBSESSED. Like, first two seasons of Scandal obsessed (unlike season three of Scandal which has totally jumped the shark for me). Watch it. Revisit Exhibit A if you still have any doubts.
P.S. Sorry Andrew, but really this whole schoolgirl crush is all your fault.
P.P.S. (also to Andrew) I am pretty sure your crush on Harvey runs deeper than even mine.
P.P.S.S. Gabriel Macht would have been the best Batman. I love ya Ben Affleck, but no.
Ok I’ll stop now.
And for those who, like me, like to chase a gluttonous TV show binge with something a bit more, ah, cerebral, in an attempt to feel less gross about yourself, I highly recommend Dan Harris’ book 10% Happier. I know from the amazing responses my post about anxiety received that a lot of you struggle with it too, and this is such a funny, witty, interesting story about one TV anchors journey of self-awareness and acceptance via meditation. It’s an easy, great read that has some very interesting theories.
