  • absolutely brilliant

    this has to be the most randomly funny show I have ever watched. the relationship between the main two characters (Shawn and Gus) is incredibly well done. Supporting roles are also strong and have good character depth.

    Equally interesting is the relationship between Shawn and his father which gives a good insight into what has led to Shawn doing what he does best - solving crimes.

    Its important to point out that the comedy is not for everyone, at times it can be rather obscure and dry, which for me is perfect as I'm that way myself, however may seem strange to others.

    All in all, a truly excellent show that has me re-watching episodes over and over again.
  • Very well written show!!!

    I was very reluctant in writing a review for Psych, because since I don't speak english very well, I can't explain in words how much I love and appreciate this show, which I hope it last for a really long time with the same characters. But I'll give it a shot, because it deserves so.

    I didn't like Psych much in the beginning. But since I started taking a closer look at it, I'm hooked. It has all the ingredients that makes a show a good and notable one: a lot of action, drama, mystery, suspense, romance, comedy, it's very exciting and it's my favorite show (along with Scrubs). The dynamic between its characters, their personal lives and their cases it's really great. And the dialogues are priceless. Also, the actors tend to be very expressive in their character's emotions, it's awesome.

    The way that Shawn was trained by Henry since he was a little kid, he can be a fake psychic forever and not be discovered. The hard love between father (Henry) and son (Shawn) is very much appreciated by me and it's my favorite part of the show. I love the dynamic between the two of them. Not to mention Shawn and Gus, they crack me up. And of course, Shawn and Juliet, they belong together, but they have a whole life to live together so, for now, let's enjoy their sexual tension and its funny, romantic and, sometimes, sad, implications.

    To me, it's a MUST SEE show! Definitely.
  • My Sunday night, TV on, brain off, show

    This is my Sunday night viewing with my 12 year old daughter - it's not too scary or disturbing for her and we both get the humour. Sunday nights for me is my last opportunity on the weekend to veg out on the soft in front of the TV, and Psych is great entertainment. You don't have to think too hard with Psych - Shawn wil clear everything up by the end of the episode. The camera zoom-ins allow you to have the same keen sense of observation as Shawn - something definitely missing for me on a Sunday night.

    Great entertainment, long may it continue.
  • A surprizingly funny show

    Psych was one of those shows that i went in expecting nothing and complety and utterly devoid of any good use of psy power. However, much to my enjoyment i was proven wrong. Psych is actually a grossly entertaining show with more social references then you can shake a stick at. What makes this show great is that it doesnt try to be funny. Oh no it uses carefully placed wit and a very good cast to create a very real feeling scenario to create it. The only minor problem that i have is that sometimes it feels a little rushed, that they kinda skipp over what could have been pretty entertaining stuff to reach the end. But overall it is a very interesting show with a refreshing new style and wont disapoint if you chose to watch.
  • Everything you could ever want in a Psych episode!

    This was the most amazing episode ever! I loved how it started out completely normally like any other Psych, but then took such a drastic turn. I knew something would be different about this episode right away when Chief Vick was so upset and distraught. That is so unlike her, so I knew that this was something special. This was the most thrilling, climatic, and overall best episode of any show I've seen in a long time. I was especially glad to see Rachel Leigh Cook back as Abigail. I love the whole love triangle between her Shawn and Jules. I couldn't believe that Jules finally expresses her feelings for Shawn, and as Shawn said, such a horrible time. I felt really bad for Jules because it took a lot for her to finally come clean about her feelings and Shawn knew that. You could tell that he was really struggling internally whether to say yes to Jules, but break Abigail's heart, or to say no to Jules and break her heart. I liked the way it ended though, because it really did set it up for their love to be rekindled. Also, I think that the fact that James Roday co-wrote the episode had a lot to do with its magnificence. Overall, best Psych episode ever!
  • Psych is a light hearted detective comedy that is fast paced and very funny. Anticipate the gags being set up ready for the punchline to be delivered and then "BAM!" They take you in a different direction, with carefully crafted characters. :)

    This show never takes itself too seriously and is always prepared to poke fun at itself and other mainstream TV.
    (Series 3 episode 5 - Starsky and Hutch)
    Fast played humor (sometimes too fast) often leaves you thinking "Huh?" closely followed by deep "Guffaws".
    Shawn Spencer (James Roday) & Burton'Gus'Guster (Dulé Hill) play brilliantly off each other emphasising the duos adolescent ineptitude. Only when you meet Shawns' overbearing father do you understand where his observation skills and reluctance to grow up originated from.
    A cleverly crafted series.
  • Amazing, what a show, absolutely fantastic funny, original with great acting had me hooked from the first episode.

    As a new comer to the show i have to say that the show is absolutely fantastic the premise of a man who can pick out the smallest details and put them together so quickly it seems so impossible that he needs to use a out off this world excuse to explain how he is able to solve crimes so quickly. especially when so my "psychics" claim they can solve crimes. this show. show how people are more willing to belive the unbelievable over the simplest explanation. which is what make this show so fantastic and the humor is great giving me belly laugh all the way through. defiantly one to watch
  • Shawn who has phenomenal observational skills drummed into him by his dad (a former cop) assists the cops pretending those observtational skills are actually derived from his psychic abilities.

    This is absolutely a phenomenal show. I wish more people watched and appreciated it.

    I mean I watched this show from the very first time it was aired and I was hooked. It kind of bothers me though that a show like the Mentalist which took the premise off of this show gets such a bigger audience. Anybody checkout the shoutout Shawn made to wanting to see the Mentalist this season. God this show is good.

    It all works. The 80's references are so funny. Even when they sneak a fake commercial into it about wanting Dunkin Donuts it's like that's what those characters almost do anyway. The characters are phenomenal. Shawn and Gus are the perfect team. Even when they needle each other you can feel the friendship and they are always hilarious. And unlike in other shows Gus who would be considered a sidekick doesn't feel like a sidekick in this show. He really does feel like a partner who actually contributes a lot. Not, just in solving the case either but he is so funny.

    There are so many good things about this show. I will definitely forget something. But Shawn's father played by Corbin Bernsenn is phenomenal. He really does give you so much with so little screen time. As angry as he always seems with Shawn you know he really does love him. He is one of those dad's who will never admit he's proud of you or he loves you until his last day on earth. And Shawn will always have that monkey on his back about having to prove himself when his dad was proud of him all along.

    I love how Shawn literally just waves it in the face each week at the skeptical cops after notching one closed case after another. And lastly I love the future potential relationship between Shawn and Juliet. A lot of people think them coming together might end the series. But there is one other hook. She doesn't know he's not a real psychic yet. That's a hook that can keep reeling us in every week too.

    If I were to point out any flaw in this show it would be one though. The adventures of little Shawn and Gus cartoon really did suck. And I'm glad I think they ended them. But it isn't fair to criticize a perfect show off of a DVD extra. This show is the gold standard. I only have one more complaint. There are never enough episodes ever. This show rules!
  • Doesn't take itself too seriously...and that's a good thing.

    First off, I won't mention any names but to the person who made a comment about "mentally challenged teenagers" I can only assume you knew that was offensive and wrote it anyway so pat yourself on the back for showing just how insensitive you can be. Report me all you want.

    I laugh out loud at this show and love the 80s references and silliness between Shawn and Gus. You always know they will figure it out in the end but watching all the goofy antics they do to get there is entertaining. Watching Monk and this on friday nights with the family sometimes beats renting what passes as "blockbusters" these days.
  • James Roday stars as Shawn Spencer in "Psych".

    Psych, what can I say about Psych? This is the BEST show in the history of Television. I have never seen a show that had such Chemistry with the actors and the Characters. I love Shawn Spencer, he's witty, Charming, and hilarious. James Roday really brings out everything for this Character. When this show comes on, I completly zone out and there is nothing else there except Psych. The Catch phrases on the show are so funny, and I use them daily. I totally can't wait for more episodes. My entire family loves this show, when I am not feeling all that well, I watch Psych, and feel better.
  • An incorrigibly charming James Roday leads a tight cast through hilarious story lines in an effort to dispense justice. Inspired purely by entertainment, a young man spends his time solving crimes and frustrating those around him with his genius.

    There is something delicious about the way that Roday parades around the screen, smirking and yet fabulous, Shawn's arrogance never once offends, but seems to endear more aggressively as the episodes develop. I have a habit of getting drawn, addicted and rather incapacitated by new series that I discover everyday, and I tried to avoid Psych for that reson. Finally, alone one Thursday night I made the DVD run and Psych sat screaming at me from the TV section. Knowing I would be sacrificing my much needed beauty sleep I hired the entire first season.
    Needless to say Two days later, after working fulltime and watching fulltime, I crawled back to the video store shattered and yet sublimely satisfied. I would love to be ashamed by this, but seriously, I love the concept. A young boy is forced to observe, to respond, to know his surroundings and consequently is endowed with fairly intensified skills. It just kinda makes you feel like you could be special doesn't? This is definitely one of the series that send me into my chameleonic frenzy. James Roday has a fabulous sense of timing and I find myself in hysterics most of the way through every episode. I just want to see more!!!
  • Incredibly hilarious: it will have you gasping for breath and hurrying to the bathroom so you don't pee your pants.

    Psych is always good for a laugh. Turn on any episode and you can find funny little moments to keep you chuckling all day long. The mysteries keep you guessing and you can always expect a twist or surprise in the end. It's the perfect detective show to watch if you enjoy silliness and not too much seriousness while solving crimes- and it never gets old.

    Gus and Shawn are two of the funniest tv characters ever, with their distinctively different personalties that somehow mesh together to make an awesome comedic duo. Their dialogue is witty and they never fail to make you smile with lines that are delivered perfectly.
  • Light-hearted, character-driven farcical take on the crime/mystery genre.

    Psych is the story of a thirty-ish slacker, Sean, whose uber-serious dad, who is a cop, taught him to be hyper-observant as a kid. He has now parlayed this talent into a fake psychic schtick, and a real talent for solving mysteries. His sidekick, Gus, is his childhood friend. Gus has a real day job selling drugs, and as played by Dule Hill, serves as a straight man foil to Sean's more flamboyant "psychic" antics. Sean is also in constant tension with his sometime employer, chief of police of the Santa Barbara police.

    Some serious undercurrents are also present in the relationship between Sean and his now-retired dad, as they gradually come to accept and respect each other. Also interesting is the ongoing flirtation between Sean and a cute-but-smart police detective.

    This is not a show that you will still be thinking about an hour after you see it, but it is a show you will laugh at while you watch it, with smart scripting and solid comedic acting.
  • This is a truly original concept for a show and brilliantly executed.

    This show is now in it's third season and just keeps getting better all the time.

    The show centres on Shawn Spencer a lifelong underachiver and class clown who has developed a keen eye for detail thanks to years of training by his police officer father. When Shawn tells the police that nhe has solved a crime just by watching the case develop on TV they assume he is involved. To avoid incarceration he convinces them that he is in fact a psychic. Then together with his best friend Gs he starts the one and only psychic detective agency... Psych!

    This show is a fabulous mix of fantasticly oriuginal characters and hillarious comedy. Plus it just gets better and better. It is one of the few shows where each season is better than the last.

  • Jasmes Roday+Dule Hill=Fun! Fun! Fun!

    This show its so funny i cant watch it its bad to my health James Roday & DUle Hill are an excelent combination for a "fun-team" this show its so funny for the first time i think that "The Mentalist" was a copy of this TV show but without fun but then i figure it out its totally different Psych its a Tv show about "fake pchychs but real detectives" really fun show that you cant miss it excepet off course the doctor did not recommended to you Totally funny well done tv show rerally good keep it up like this
  • Unique idea that is already being copied. But the copycats will never compare to the original! Psych is great!

    Psych is an EXCELLENT show. All members of my family (all ages) LOVE IT!!! It is so funny. Although we also like Monk - Monk has become one running joke. Psych is always new, interesting, and extremely funny. With humor at every turn - it is a laugh a minute! Sean and Gus are best friends and they make us feel like we are their best friends too. Every episode has a new twist and never leaves us wanting for laughs. We often need to watch it more than once to hear all the jokes because we had been laughing so hard from previous jokes that there are things we missed the first time around.
    Everyone should watch PSYCH!!!!!
  • Very funny and entertaining!!

    If you can watch this show and not laugh then it is to late for you you're already dead or in a coma. This show is one of a kind linking scientific deduction and witty humor to solve cases for a police department. Shawn and Burton (Gus) Guster give the roles just the right amount of push it needs to keep it funny but (seriously not). Hope for this show in the future are high but USA network will only keep it if it gets the ratings it deserves. So everyone tune in next season and buy it on DVD, Itunes, ETC... Thanks for reading
  • Psychic detectives, what more to say?

    A great show about two childhood friends who help solve difficult crimes for the police . . . one of them is a Psychic, by Psychic I mean ridiculous genus crime stopper. With that quirky premise the show chugs right along with a slew of very weird cases. Psych is a comedy and a surprisingly witty and smart comedy. The cases are fun, but the show is really watched for the characters who are over the top and some how make their wacky world work. Good dialog and some fun slap stick humor make this show both refreshing and worth taking the time to watch.
  • The show is about a "psychic" detective (Shaun) and his sidekick (Gus). Except Shaun is only pretending to be a psychic. He is really just a smart guy with amazing observation and perception skills. It's purely a HILARIOUS comedy.

    Well what can I say... Amazing show. I look forward to this show every week quite keenly even though there's never really any twist ending, or mystery, etc.. It is instead because of how funny it is. I don't think any show has made laugh as much since Friends (not comparing the two) just in terms of laughter for me, this is AMAZING. If you just want a show that doesn't require much energy watching (like Lost, Prison Break, etc..) then this is the one for you. You can watch this every week knowing it will be entertaining and it will definitely make you laugh.
  • This show is just so funny, it's awesome!

    Headline: 14-year-old girl finds new dramatic comedy on USA, besides 'House'. I really do love this show! It's about two detective best friends who go around solving crimes, but have a knack to screw things up and cause a scene through the process. And get this: one of them is a Pyshic! :P But really, this show is unique because how many comedy dramas can you find on TV these days? I don't really like dramas, but 'Pysch' has given me a new perpesctive on them. I could get used to something like this. Oh, my mom thinks they act like a couple of immature kids, but that's what keeps it funny! This is one of my personal favorites, for sure.
  • This show is so great!

    PSYCH is a GREAT show, it\'s funny, a good cast, and it\'s like a new Monk, (Which Monk isn\'t funny anymore) but they did a fantastic job on this show, and if after or during the show, cancel it I will be SO mad, because pretty much all my favorite shows are now cancelled! shows like: Surface, Invasion (which was getting a little dumb), Four Kings, Teachers, and so many more. but hopefuly they won\'t cancel PSYCH, because so many ppl watch it and love it so much they keep watching it, and buy the dvds. this is a great show.
  • A great show!!

    I am starting to go into a phase of starting to watch shows that I've never seen before. The first part of the phase was trying out this show Psych, the second show I tried was the action show, Prison Break, then I just recently saw the first three episodes of the BBC america show, Primeval. If I had to choose between which one out of these three series to watch, I would definently choose Psych. It's a great show! It's got humor, some excitement, and cool mysteries. It's great as a drama, detective show, and an outrageous comedy. If you're looking for a great detective comedy show, either choose Monk or Psych. They're both great comedy-dramas!
  • One word.. AWESOME

    One of the best shows i ever seen ..

    Psych tell us about a fake psych Shawn and is partner/best friend Gus.. Together they will solve various crimes and other things. The best thing thing about this shown is Shawn and Gus because if you watch this show you will always left with those two.The humor is always amazing... sometimes subtle, sometimes a little dramatic.. Every episode have a start and a beginning which why this show is amazing..If you don't have any more shows to watch thing twice before not watch Psych..So start watching Psych and you will thank me..
  • After a fluke gets Shawn Spencer a role as a detective for the SBPD, he finds his buddy Gus and himself wrapped up in the career "they've always wanted". Using his brilliant powers of observation, he masquerades as a "Psychic" who solves crimes.

    Absolutely the best show on TV. The characters are witty, funny, and the show is chock-full of pop-culture references from the 70s, 80s, etc, that everyone will enjoy. Whether it be poking fun at Ferris Beullers Day Off or The Breakfast Club, the unforgettable antics of Shawn and Gus rival any show on the USA network. The chemistry between Shawn and the beautiful detective Juliet O'Hara (played by James Roday and Maggie Lawson, respectively) is fantastic, and it a real treat. As the seasons have continued we now see an addition the the depths of the characters, but at the same time, they retain the same hilarity that we have enjoyed the previous seasons.
  • I'm in love =]

    I love this show way too much... it's my new obsession. I really love the way that you don't really get the whole "ongoing plot" from this show, where there's a major issue that will be solved at the end of the season or series. You get that one plot per episode thing, which I find very awesome. It almost reminds me of a cartoon with the whole pot thing. Plus the characters have that personality thing set very cleanly... like if you had to describe each character in just a few words, you could. I've also grown to love the over-acting of Shawn, which really makes the show a bunch of fun. The humor is amazing as well... sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic. And while the main crimes can sometimes be very predictable (especially because they light the clues up for us) the delivery of the crimes makes up for it all.
  • Uncle Jack henry's younger brother has a treasure map of some treasure 3 teams including shaun and gus who are apparently jack's partners try and find the treasure

    the best so far from psych shaun at his very best a must watch shaun had great presence of mind and also good help from gus julliet and also henry Jack's character was well justified also his patners have a done a good job. All in all this is the best psych episode in all three seasons and it is a must watch.No more info about the episode but definetly hope for better episodes and something like this in the future. these kind of episodes will help psych a big show for the years to come. A great episode in short
  • It's very, very...

    Hilarious! It really is. Psych is about a guy who is "Psychic". Totally funny. I don't know a better word to describe this show. Its amazing. It is simply amazing!! I think this is a great mystery show to next to Monk, of course. But still USA network did it again! It featured another good show. I mean It is a good show, it is not terrible. If its not bad its good! But you know sometimes, it doesn't hold my interest. I don't why but still! For Psych to hold my interest, at least sometimes, is amazing! Not a lot of things can hold my interest. But always remember, its my opinion. But remember even if you disagree, it really is a good show.
  • It's a definite MUST see! Clear your calenders and get ready to laugh till you cry!

    I love this show! It was awesome from the start and has only become better with time! There's only one bad part of the show, and that's that they changed the theme video clips... The first seasons clips were much funnier. But I love the multi-language format show they did with the spanish soap opera, and I liked the chrismas episode a lot. Sean and Gus are hilarious! And Sean's father, Henry, is getting a better character! Although Sean needs to hook up with that hot detective O'Hara, or even Vick! Lassiter is starting to show his more human side for a change, which is nice!
  • this show about a fake psychic detective is wonderful. watch on USA at 10 every friday. please? haha just kidding but watch! great show
