As I understand it, most of the USA Network original series have a reputation of being too trashy for "good" cable channels (AMC), but still better than some of the other cable channels (Lifetime, Bravo, etc.). Whatever; I will happily admit to watching and enjoying the **** out of this show.

They left off season 1 with a cliffhanger, even though we all knew what the eventual outcome would be since they can't get rid of the main character (this not being Game of Thrones). As such, I was a bit disappointed in the season premiere since it didn't hold much suspense.

Although every time Gina Torres gets angry, I get nostalgic for Firefly all over again. And a little hot and bothered. Rawr.

USA also has Burn Notice and weekly House marathons, and if you're saying Suits is a good show I'm willing to give it a chance. I don't usually get into shows until about midway through the third seasons mainly because I don't like starting to enjoy a show and then hearing about it being canceled. Gets annoying fast.

Burn Notice is fantastically awful. Like Escape from New York.

Suits, on the other hand, is actually fairly absorbing and straight-forward. It does have some of the single-episode story arcs, but these mini-stories are woven into the greater fabric of the plot fairly well, and sometimes last more than one episode.

I rather enjoyed the first season. Pretty decent acting all around, interesting characters, good writing. It's not the best show on TV, but I'll certainly be watching season two. Though, as was previously mentioned, the cliffhanger ending to season one was kind of pointless since you know they weren't getting rid of the main character.

So I just watched an episode. It was alright, but not the kind of show I'd try to schedule time to see and more along the lines of not changing the channel to something else when it does air. Only one episode, but the secondary story played out a lot like an episode of House (multiple solution isn't the solution until problem is solved through external inspiration type deal), so it's got familiarity going for it. Like I said, that's just my impression after one episode so I could be off base with how it runs as an overall series.

I really like a lot of USA's programming. Psych, in particular. Monk was awesome, too. Their series tend to have easily likable main characters and are easy to pick up and watch an episode or two without feeling indebted to the series. Now, I do like some complex, overarching series, but sometimes it's just nice to be able to tune in and tune out.

My main plus point for USA shows is that their seasons typically run opposite of when the big 4 networks seasons do. That gives me something new to watch pretty much all year round.

Three of my favorites shows on television currently are on USA: White Collar, Psych, and Suits. Monk, also a USA product, is easily in my top 5 all time. I was going to give Common Law a shot since it is primarily filmed in New Orleans (where I live), but I missed the first few episodes so I'll wait for the reruns to start so I can watch it from the beginning.

This is a decent show, (Albeit clearly a competence **** drama), but I really wish they'd bring back Boston Legal.

So let's just bump this for the obvious reason: Season finales.

I'm a little disappointed in myself for not getting into Suits sooner. This season got a lot better past that first episode, and ended strong. Minor cliff hanger, but I kind of figured they could have dragged the main story much longer. Which, in my book is a good thing, since I hate plots dangling multiple seasons. Really enjoyed it.

Also, Burn Notice was great this season, and I can't think of anyone that could do duplicitous as well as Dr. Cox. While Suits was a good episode in itself, Burn Notice had the much better cliff hanger which makes me want to see next season. Both shows I'll definitely return to next January and November respectively.

Suits definitely had a solid season, though the ending was pretty predictable. It's on my list of shows to keep watching. Burn Notice wasn't that great this season until the last episode, the next season should be pretty interesting. I just hope they don't wrap up all of the complications in one or two episodes and then continue on, business as usual.

On the topic TV shows with a good new season, Breaking Bad is pretty **** awesome. I did not see what happened at the end of the train heist episode coming at all. Dealing with the consequences of that has made this season go from good to great.

Suits was decent, though hardly surprising. Burn Notice definitely had the better ending.
