LB Sees SUITS (and Also BOB AND RAY)

The Good:

  • When this series began it was an interesting series about a genius drug dealer who knew the law so well that he successfully did all the work his lazy lawyer “partner” was supposed to do in intriguing criminal and semi-criminal cases
  • Good looking actors, both men and women, in even better looking clothes

The Not-So-Good:

  • The series has evolved away from the original concept and has become about the internal politics and business of a highly successful big city law firm instead
  • The internal affairs and business of the highly successful law firm, composed of good looking men and women in even better looking clothes are the same as the affairs and business on every soap opera since Ray Goulding and Bob Elliott (alias Chris Elliott’s father) AKA Bob and Ray began parodying them in 1945

The Result:

  • I’ve gotten hold of all the old BOB AND RAY SHOW material I can and have been listening/watching (they did both radio and TV) to them instead of bothering to see any of my DVR’d SUITS, and I think you should too
