The German Blog Abwegig had the idea to do regular ratings of different TV series. In each round the first three episodes of three TV series are reviewed. Since I was looking for some new series I’ve taken a look at the current round. In the suggested series are Being Erica (IMDb, Wikipedia), The Shadow Line (IMDb, Wikipedia) and Suits (IMDb, Wikipedia).
I already review it here. I really like it. I think that the forth season has started, but after a weak third season I’m not sure if I keep watching it. Anyway, still good two first seasons.
The Shadow Line
After the murder of a major crime boss both sides, the police and the criminal organization start to investigate his death. On one side Jonah Gabriel, who just returned to the police after he got shot and lost his memory. On the other side Joseph Bede, who actually just wants to get done with his last deal and then leave then criminal past behind him.
The Shadow Line is a dark, slowly developing drama about the police, the criminals and a concrete murder case. It’s mostly driven by its shadowy atmosphere and characters instead of fast paced twists and turns.
Anyway, I’ve seen the first three episodes and like it so far. Will watch the rest of it.
Mike Ross is a brilliant guy who unfortunately dropped out of school. He earns his living by taking exams for other people and distributing drugs. By luck he gets hired as a trainee attorney and now tries to do his best.
Suits is a legal drama, it’s about arrogant people being assholes to each other, showing off, intimidate and manipulate each other. A very testosterone loaded atmosphere with tons of ‘who’s got the bigger….’.
I don’t like Suits, it just bores me and I never got interested in it. The show isn’t bad, but it’s just not my cup of tea.
