I saw the first episode and Don Cheadle is bad ass. Kristen Bell plays a business psychologist who's halfway into chicks and there's a pretty hot scene with her at a strip club. The show has lots of nudity and foul language, so it's a hit as far as I'm concerned.

Wasn't interested in watching it at all until this post. Thanks!

Consultants can't afford strippers... haha, nonetheless this looks like a promising show.

The pilot is amazing.

The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee WSO is not your personal search function.

I think you just liked it because it was about a black guy that had a job.

Someone thinks highly of themselves.

I am permanently behind on PMs, it's not personal.

Funny they are focusing on the 3 year transition/implementation work as the real prize. But yeah way too glamorized.

Guys, let's be honest. This show SUCKS. It had all the parts, but the whole was an attrocious, boring, insanely exaggerated mess. And worst of all for a comedy show, it wasn't funny...at all.

This shit never happens. There are literally zero partners at MBB (or any firm for that matter) who would try any of the shit that Don Cheadle was doing. In fact, he would be seriously repremanded for continuously sexually harassing Kristen Bell. Also, this whole notion of being double booked is the worst thing ever in consulting is complete nonsense. When clients send out RFPs for major work, they always invite at least two firms for oral presentations of their pitch. We have competed with BCG and McK like this on at least half a dozen occasions like this since we joined. Finally, the "engagement" (if you can even call it that) in this episode is something that a PR firm would do, not a top strategy consultancy.

The dialogue was not funny and the excessive use of jargon was totally unnecessary and annoying. The only saving grace was that it was not sensored. But using 'fuck' several dozen times in the script, and showing a few pairs of tits does not a good show make.

Suits is a million times better than this show. It's not LOL funny but it's decently witty, has an ok script, still highly exaggerated, but at least the characters are charming and engaging (Harvey Spectre is actually badass).

I'd give this show 2 stars out of 5.
