  • Gus must quit Pysch or face termination.

    I decided to give Pysch a try after enjoying USA's other drama series Burn Notice. Wow, the difference in quality between the two is noticeable. Pysch reaches for humor in the most pathetic ways, including awful back-and-forths and prop gags. The main character Shawn Spencer portrayed by James Roday is a diluted "cool guy" and fails to take control of the screen. His straight man counterpart Gus played by Dule Hill is an annoying, horribly-written version of an awkward executive. The level of intelligence this show possesses might make the viewer think they are watching a Nickelodeon program. I can applaud the usage of veteran actor Corbin Bernsen who plays his role perfectly. While his acting skills have diminished since his LA Law days, he is still very believable in his role. Christopher McDonald's appearance on the show was unexpected, and produced some solid laughs. Unfortunately the comedically-gifted actor was not enough to save this show.
