I don’t always go for bad boys, but when I do, I prefer them to look like this…
If you’ve been living in an abandoned mine shaft then you might not be aware that Wednesday was the season finale of USA’s Suits. And if for some unfathomable reason you are not a cave-dweller and have still yet to watch this show, you are missing out on a cast with more collective sex-appeal than the entire Winchester Family. Headlining that cast is Gabriel Macht, whose character Harvey Spector took a real hit in this week’s finale. I shall say no more. What I will say is that Pearson Spector Litt’s resident bad boy coming to terms with his abandonment issues made for one of the best performances on TV this year. Not many working actors today can make panic attacks look cool, and for that we salute you Gabriel Macht. Then of course, there’s the fact that you’re absurdly hot. Don’t think we forgot about that.
Litigation. Corporate buyouts. Company bylaws. If these three words do not turn you on just a little bit, there’s a chance you aren’t watching Suits on USA. If that’s the case, you have my sincere condolences. Not only have you been missing out on the greatest legal drama to grace the airwaves since JAG, but for the last five years you have been living without this unfairly lofty expectation for how a man should look in a suit.
You also didn’t get to witness Meghan Markle demonstrating how to get it done in heels and a pencil skirt.
You completely missed Gina Torres obliterate the competition for Ultimate Corporate Mamma Jamma.
Nor seen the raw, cringe-inducing power of Rick Hoffman as Louis Litt, the stoolie we all hate to love.
And been denied this bromantic buffoonery.
You’ve gone all this time without salivating every time you hear Ima Robot’s “Greenback Boogie”.
Starting to feel a little sorry for yourself? Well, that’s only to be expected. So take a minute, have a good cry. Then you need to dust yourself off and prepare for the binge of your life, because you’ve only got a few hours before the Suits season 5 finale airs on USA tomorrow night. Last one there is a Harold Gunderson!
Jack and Rose. Romeo and Juliet. Joey and Pacey. Whitney and Adam Pally. These are just some of history’s most endearing and tragic love stories, where couples are torn asunder by war, icebergs, teen drama, and insufficient ratings. I guess now that Happy Endings has been unceremoniously axed by ABC, we’ll never know if Max, Pally’s character on the show, and I could have made it work. Sure, he was gay and gynophobic and kind of a burnout and not super hygienic (and did I mention he was gay?) but I like to think those trivialities wouldn’t have stood in our way.
Well Max, this is good bye for now. I’ll treasure our moments together, and raise a glass of Sweet n’ Creamy in your honor.
Procedural cop show. Buddy comedy. 80’s nostalgia hour. Stylistically USA’s Psych is a little all over the place. Which, coincidentally, is exactly what Ellen and I love about it. That and the fact that James Roday’s character Shawn Spencer fulfills all our quasi-bad boy needs (motorcycle, complicated relationship with father, spotty employment record, and questionable dietary habits). I guess what I’m saying is, don’t be an incorrigible Eskimo pie with a caramel ribbon. Watch Psych tonight on USA!
He’s hilarious, he’s adorable, and his role as Mike Ross on USA’s legal drama Suits made this girl’s summer hiatus a little more bearable. And speaking as someone still reeling from the Suits season finale, all I can say is that January cannot come soon enough. Patrick J. Adams, we salute you.
Oh, you’re still not convinced? Try this clip on for size.
