A general ramble about Suits

So season 2 of Suits just started and since season 1 wrapped up, I’ve watched a … lot of The Good Wife, the only other law-driven TV show I keep up with, so inevitably, I’m starting to compare and certain points are coming to relief.

Suits is good. It’s a fun 45-minute TV show. Zippy dialogue. Shot well. Charming actors. But it’s kind of heartless. And soulless. And brainless too. The thing is that I feel it can be more, because the cast is pretty great and I know they can do more with their characters, but the writing is just so flat. This is what a bankruptcy lawyer says when the managing partners need to leverage him for his vote in the office:

Colombiana

Can’t believe I have to wait a whole summer to watch this.

Can I also just say that I love Michael Vartan to the Nth degree (ALIAS 4EVA!!!!) and can’t wait to see him do an action movie? I still live in an alternate universe where Jennifer Garner did not marry Ben Affleck and is still dating Michael Vartan. Sigh.

Mr. James Stewart

I went through a black and white movies phase during high school. I’ve obviously gotten out of the phase, but I still think James Stewart is the handsomest man ever.

Dramas of 2010

Let’s wrap this up, procrastinator style!

2010 was a really good drama year for me. I tend to do this thing where when I get really bored with Kpop, I deviate to dramas. Last year was a relatively decent year for music, so my drama list was a little shorter. This year, in contrast, was a really bad year for music, so I found it easier to concentrate my energy on watching dramas.

I watched a lot of dramas this year. I’m usually not a person who keeps up with every single new drama, but this year I did manage to watch a new drama every time an old one wrapped up, so I’ve developed a pretty good sense of how the year in dramas flowed together.
