I was just getting to miss PSYCH when it suddenly showed up in my TV guide. I'm itching to watch Burn Notice, but that'll be a topic for another article.
I was pleasantly surprised that the writers actually did touch on Shawn's (James Roday) planned proposal, although I wasn't a big fan of his poor explanation to a disbelieving Gus (Dule Hill). I didn't buy Shawn's web of lies any more than Gus did.
I really have to give it to Cary ... Read More

The setup for a lover's retreat was brilliant. I'd love to see Shawn (James Roday) and Juliet (Maggie Lawson) get away a little more. Seeing them always working a case can get a little repetitive. The change of scenery was welcomed.
Right off the bat, I feel compelled to give Jason Priestly and Jennifer Finnigan kudos for a terrific job in their respective roles of Clive and Barbie. My only issue with them was the Barbie name. It ... Read More

I've been pretty forward about my desire to see Gus (Dule Hill) find love. He only has one-episode interests anymore. I was really hoping for something to come out of tonight's new episode. Nicole (Diora Baird) seemed like another one-episode interest, but it would have been interesting to see if the writers could have stretched things out and bring her back in the near future.
Now as for the bulk of the episode, I actually enjoyed the cult scene even ... Read More

PSYCH's ability to land notable guest stars continues to impress me. They've managed to land just about everyone I can imagine. Now you can add Captain James T. Kirk... I mean William Shatner to that proud list of big-time guest stars.
Shatner didn't play just another character. He signed on to play a major character, Juliet's father. That fact does leave open the opportunity to make other appearances. I wouldn't object to Shatner returning to the role. ... Read More

First off, let me just say the PSYCH crew did a terrific job in casting the role of the crazy billionaire in "Shawn Interrupted". Brad Dourif not only looked the part, he acted the part to perfection. I didn't have a single complaint with his performance!
As a matter of fact, "Shawn Interrupted" was one of those few episodes which didn't really garner a the typical criticism from me. Having Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) go undercover to ... Read More

PSYCH almost can’t go wrong when they tackle one of my favorite things, sports. The show has already been on the inside of a football locker room so baseball felt like a natural progression. The thing that makes it all the better is the obvious tie between Corbin Bernsen and the hilarious Major League film franchise.
I really liked the decision to bring Danny Glover into the show. I’ve really come to enjoy the many movies he has made over the ... Read More

PSYCH is one of those shows that draws in fans from a lot of genres of entertainment and one of those happens to be comic book fans. PSYCH has actually dabbled in the past with comic books and comic book characters so "The Amazing Psych Man & Tap-Man, Issue #2" wasn't that big of a leap from the usual stuff the show puts together. But you didn't have to be a comic book fan to have enjoyed this episode.
Vigilantes always ... Read More

PSYCH was in a tough spot this week. After they made what I would consider the best episode thus far, it was going to be nearly impossible to match it. However, anything is possible when it comes to a Halloween episode. Past Halloween episodes have certainly had their moments. Instead of going with classic film homages, PSYCH went for a more contemporary approach, drawing upon the ridiculous vampire popularity in today’s pop culture.
Shawn (James Roday) and Gus’ (Dule ... Read More

I am usually pretty late to watching movies. I seem to always be a few years behind in watching the blockbuster films, instead opting to watch television shows. It was just a few months ago that I watched The Hangover, a film which clearly inspired this episode of PSYCH.
I thought the crew did a terrific crew of paying homage to The Hangover. There are a lot of similarities between the film and this episode. I actually thought the ... Read More

Unfortunately, I do still have some episodes to finish reviewing from last season, but I wanted to get right into this one and it was pretty fun. I was really disappointed when USA announced they were postponing PSYCH's season debut by a few months so that their other programming an earlier debut. The wait was worth it.
After sneaking into British Consulate Residence in Santa Barbara to get a Darth Vader action figure for a kid who had lent it to ... Read More
