Here’s seven reasons why this year’s Emmy nominations are the best in years…

If you’re unfamiliar with this fashionable series that puts a whole new spin on guilty pleasures, it is about Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a down-on-his-luck genius with an eidetic memory who convinces a hot shot corporate lawyer to hire him as an associate even though he’s never taken even attended law school.
Five bromantic season later, Mike Ross’ ill-kept secret is finally out, and he’s reaping the consequences of his actions by reporting to prison after forgoing marrying the girl of his dreams.
