After Orphan Black‘s season finale last Saturday, my summer TV season officially began—which means a lot of reality TV and very little scripted television. Monday started off with an episode of The Bachelorette that featured quite possibly the dumbest group date idea ever: a lie detector test. The Top 20 was picked on Wednesday’s So You Think You Can Dance, and Harvey and Mike’s battle got decidedly uglier on Suits. Episodes of The People’s Couch and Hollywood Game Night made me laugh this week, and there was plenty of exciting sports action to catch as the World Cup continued and drafts were televised for both the NBA and NHL.
While Harvey and Mike’s fight may have gotten uglier on this week’s episode of Suits, there was nothing ugly about the outfits worn by the women around them—in fact, the fashion statements made by those women were my favorite things I saw on TV all week. It’s no secret that I pay perhaps more attention than I should to fashion on television, and there were moments during this episode of Suits that I was so distracted by the beautiful clothes worn by Jessica and Donna that I stopped paying attention to the actual scene and started imagining owning those aforementioned beautiful clothes. Sometimes the best thing I see on TV in any given week is just something that stops me in my tracks for a moment in the best possible way. This week, it was the fabulous wardrobe choices made to highlight the class, elegance, and power of two of my favorite female characters on television. I’ve always said that Suits is one of the most stylish shows on television, and never has that been more true than it was this week.
What was the best thing you saw on TV this week?
