Psych is about a son of detective that has this amazing photographic memory and wonderful sense of telling about peoples personalities. He finds himself weasling into police buisness and solving crimes before they do.
Psych is the show i believ no one can get away from. It is a mix of comedic genius and total suspense. i love gus!!!! Everything about the show screams watch me. The latest episode about the serial killer will become a favorite,the chemistry between everyone os the shoe is undeniable. i think that usa did a good job in figuring out what people would find absoluelty undeniably great. I would suggest to anyone to watch the show and i would also tell anyone to pay close attention to the comedy, because it never stops, the whole show is great.
I originally started watching this show because of Dule Hill, but now I love everything about it.
First of all, the most original premise ever. Shawn is a fake psychic! Everytime he has a vision, I roll over on the floor laughing. The episode are mysteries, but not scary ones like Law and Order. The humor is hysterical, and the characters are so great. I could never pick between Gus and Shawn because they're so amazing and vibrant in they're own ways.
Psych is such a great show. The acting is amazing as are the plotlines and jokes. Tune in!
Psych is really funny. Shawn Spenser is really good at noticing things. He can look around the room for a minute then close his eyes and still know where everything is. He tricked his friend Gus into helping solve crimes. Shawn has tricked the police into thinking that he is a psychic. He pretends to get psychic visions but in reality he just notices things that no one else does. Giving him the upper hand over the police. I hope Psych continues on for a long time. It is a really funny show and I would for it to continue for a couple more years.
This show is serioulsly funny. With great likeable characters, and fun acting.
This is an original idea of a fake psychic who actually has just super abilities of observation. He is strong headed and kind of a goof off, but now he is honing his real talent and using it for good. Along with his best friend, who is constantly telling him no (that gets kind of annoying sometimes), but ultimatly he agrees to opening Psych the "fake" psychic detective agency.
Some of the episode ideas aren't that original or innovative, and sometimes you can see right through it and geuss the ending. But it's not the mystery why I watch, it's becuase James Roday as Shawn Spencer is hot and hilarious.
This is the best television show of the year, no doubt!
The characters are fleshed out, cleverly defined, and the
dialogue is EXCELLENT! It is a fast-paced show that makes
the viewer hang on every word with a dropped chin! Shawn Spencer is a smart boy, \'break all the rules\' rebel. His long time \'I know better than to do this\' buddy, Burton Gustor, is constantly being dragged half unwillingly into Shawn\'s overt positism and scam-schemes. Despite all the \'psycho pathic\' espisodes and bluffings of Shawn, he keeps talking himself into and getting out of trouble. Burton can\'t help but add to the solutions with his own unique observations and connections. Somehow, they keep ending up on both feet and running, even if it is AWAY
from the hot action! Despite all the \'psycho pathic\'
espisodes and blunderings of Shawn, he keeps talking himself
into and getting out of trouble with the ease of a magician!
Our family age range is from 17 to 58 years old. We just really love Shawn and Burton. It is especially intriguing with the flashback episodes between father and son. Corbin Bernsen outdoes himself! Shawn\'s character as a young boy is absolutely adorable!
There is no \'warming up\' to these characters. It\'s love at
Following the life of a 20 something male who finds himself working for the local police as a psychic.Although he posseses no psychic abilities, he makes due and solves cases using his extrordinary abilities of perception, wit, and a photographic memory.
So far its a pretty good show. The characters all seem to fit thier places. There seems to be an incresing story line between the main character and his father of whom he didnt speek to in a very long time. Maybe some relationship type stuff with one of the females at the police department as well. Should make for a good couple seasons as long as they keep the events fresh and new.
Ok, this show is amazing. I could tell just from the adds that it would be funny, but it has passed even my expectations. It is hilarious (sp?). It is so great because it combinds comedy and mystery all into one, and does a really good job at it. Shawn is so funny, and then when you have his partner Gus that is the complete opposite, it is amazing how funny those two become. I think that this show will continue to get better and has great possibilities for the near future. I get excited just thinking about the show, and how funny it is. Plus if you are more into the mystery detective stuff, its great to because it has had some good cases so far.
Shawn Spencer has developed a keen eye for detail after being instructed by his police officer father to note even the most minute details of his surroundings. He hated his father for always being so hard on him, and still does. After Shawn calls in a tip on a crime to the police, which he has done repeatedly, the police accuse him of committing the crime. To try to clear his name, Shawn convinces the police that he is a psychic and he begins solving cases for the police force along with his childhood friend. I like this show and hope it goes on, but doubt it will go more than one season.
I am absolutely pleasantly surprised by this show. USA played the heck out of previews for the show prior to it's premiere and perhaps some really had a good idea that it was going to be an awesome show. I, however, wasn't one of them. I was sort of like "a show about a guy pretending to be a psychic? I don't know about this...sounds a little corny to me." I have definitely eaten my words a million times over thusfar. The chemistry between James and Dule not only works well but makes the show. They have this almost comedic bond since I can't say how many times I have busted out with laughter. Of course you have to give props to the writers but without excellent actors it's just lines on a page. Also, pairing it up with Monk was brilliance. So if you ever need a laugh tune into this one, you won't be disappointed.
PSYCH is an awesome show about Shawn Spencer who pretends to be a psychic to fool the police and he does real detective work for them while being a fake psychic. This show is the ultimate mix between Monk and The Dead Zone. Except while those two have sentimental sides, PSYCH is mainly jokes. For a new show PSYCH is uncommonly good, its really funny and it has some pretty puzzling mysteries too. I tune in for every new episode on Friday nights and I can't think of what I would do if I missed even one episode, the show just gets better and better, I really hope it doesn't get cancelled. If you haven't already then I suggest you watch an episode of PSYCH as soon as possible.
A show the combines mystery with comedy. It focuses on the Son of a cop who decides to be a police psychic. The only hitch is, he is not really a psychic, he is just really good at making observations. This doesn't stop him from solving crimes though.
I love this show. It is amazing how sometimes summer shows really do get it right. I love the mix of comedy with mystery...it is a lot of fun watching him figure things out that most people would never notice. I think it really has the chance to be a hit show.
I am creating a fan club, so if you want to join and get newsletters in the mail or email, please email me at email@example.com..... If you would like to join email me your address and your name so I can add you to my list. Thanks so much! Watch Psych on USA at 9:00 (Central) every Friday.....
This is definately one of the best shows this summer. It has mystery and humor put together and actually makes a really good show. Most shows that do that aren't really that successful, in my opinion. This show is doing it right though. Shawn always says something discreet that makes you laugh. Gus is a great character too. Without Gus the show wouldn't be that successful. Gus is probably the brains behind every thing and Shawn is just the crime solver. Together they make a perfect team. This is currently one of my favorite shows and a great show to watch during this summer.
I'm a big fan of mystery shows so this would be one of my favorites. Acting is great for each of their characters. Shawn wacky and absurd humor, sorta reminds me Ace Ventura pet dectetive in a way. THe show is lace humor, excitment, mystery and stuff like thhat. Truly one of USA big hits. You wouldnt put down that remote until you watch the whole thing. WHat really interest me is Shawn ability to go crazy to make people hes actually physic, Its absoutlutly hiliourious
i love this showw!!! its amazing and its very funny.. its funny and they also solve cases in there own different way! i personally love this show and i think its amazing!!! i cant wait to see more of it!!!

Having just watched the new show Psych I wouldnt be surprised if anyone from the show Eyes is involved.
The show has a lot of Eyes moments and its a great pleasure to watch it. I thouroughly enjoyed watching Eyes and Psych is on the same level (so far) as Eyes was. I just hope this show does not get cancelled as Eyes did.
Good to see Dule Hill on another show (I remember seeing him in The West Wing - which I stopped watching a looooong time ago!).
James Roday is good. He brings the quirkiness to the show. I will be watching this one regularly now. :)
We only recorded this cause it was on next to Monk, in the first 10 mins we were hooked.
Its got a really great sense of humor and is a blast to watch.
If you have seen it you MUST watch after the end when the credits are rolling they show an outtake from the show. The first one had Dulé Hill doing a Michael Jackon impression while James Roday was trying to deliver his lines. It was the funniest thing i have seen in a long time. (if you didnt recored it find it and download it!!).
With 2 shows under its belt, we have relly become attached to this one, another great USA/SCI-FI network summer hit!
Add it to Monk, The 4400, The Dead Zone, Both Stargates, and you have a GREAT Summer of TV.
Oh yeah dont forget to add "SAVED" on TNT that one is great too!!
PSYCH - a cross between "The Dead Zone" and "Monk." An easy-going slacker has had 57 jobs since high school, but he's finally found one he just might stick to. His honed skills of observation come in handy when he pretends to be a psychic for the police.
PSYCH is hilarious. It's main character is fantastic and is a great actor.
He pretends to be a psychic when he's arrested for a crime he's trying to help solve. So with his skills of observation that his father helped him hone as a child, he assits the police on several cases, and eventually, starts his own private detective agency called "Psych."
The interesting characters drive the show and the unique story lines make it even better.
This show is a golden find for USA network. And with, i think, the upcoming end to "The Dead Zone" it'll make a great replacement, well i don't want to say replacement, but great alternative to a fellow great show.
Psych, for me was a random watch cuz it looked mildy humorous, and it did definetly delivered. Witty dialogue, Solid characters, underused at times, (Gus, and the Blond Detective)but altogether it makes for an enjoyable buddy comedy, and i could very well sit down to each episode and have a good time with it. It very much reminds me of a Hardy Boys mystery, but with a fake psychic and how can you possibly say no to that? The short answer is you can't. They have just too many things going right, and alongside with monk in a 2 hour block, friday night TV is actually fun again.
I liked it. Ok after watching all of the commericals that were hyping this show I wasn't sure if it was going to be that good. However, after watching it I have to say that I really liked this show. The cops seemed to all have attitudes though. Shawn and Gus compliment each other. "Psych" seems like it is going to be a very good show much like "Monk". Hopefully in future episodes they will explain more about the relationship between Shawn and his dad and why they don't get along. Anyway all and all the pilot episode of USA's "Psych" was a great show.
This show is amazing. When drama, comedy, action, and suspense all roll into one giant ball, you know that you're in for an amazing show. I can't believe that the USA channel came up with this, but they did, and I LOVE it. It's is one of my favorite shows. It truley could be from any channel it's so good, FX, Comedy Central, FOX, any channel could have had this, but USA hosts it and that is amazing. Thank you USA for giving me my second favorite show! Thanks a LOT! This is a must see for fans of Family Guy or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
I did not know anything about this show before I watched it and I was happily suprised and I was kind of sad when it ended.
The first thing that came to my mind was another tv serie called "John Doe". Its not the same story, but the pace and the state of mind of this series reminds me of that one. So if you have seen "John Doe" and like it, then Psych should definately be for you.
Some of the plot is intelligent and makes you draw conclusions (right or wrong, that depends on you), the actors may not be oscar winners but that does not matter much because they really enjoy what they are doing and it shines through.
If I want to enjoy myself for an hour I will definately see an episode of Psych. I really hope that the rest of the episodes have the same red line and the same atmosphere as the pilot episode.
Psych is an American one-hour dramedy series billed as "a fake psychic detective series", starring James Roday as Shawn Spencer, a young police consultant whose eidetic memory leads people to believe that he's psychic.
The pilot opens with a scene of Shawn as a child, in a diner, with his father. His father bribes him to point out a number of obscure facts about the scene around him in order to get cake. He complies, impresses the waitress, and the audience begins to understand that he has extraordinary powers of observation and a photographic memory.
Cut to Shawn's apartment, 20 years later. He has apparently seduced a lovely young waitress,but in the middle of a rather long kiss, the television plays in the background. Briefly ignoring her advances, Shawn realizes that the man being interviewed by the TV reporter is guilty of the theft about which he is being interviewed, calls the police, leaves a tip, and then goes back to his romantic activities.
The following day, Shawn appears at the local precinct, trying to claim his reward for calling in the tip. The police are suspicious that he is involved with the guilty man, whom they assert must have had a partner. To avoid getting arrested, Shawn claims to be psychic. When the police are understandably skeptical, he reveals a number of facts about each of them, drawing natural conclusions from previous observations he made while waiting earlier—but he does so while putting on the traditional act of a psychic. He gets hired on a trial basis by the Interim Police Chief, Karen Vick, to find the missing son of a textile magnate.
At the mansion of the magnate (played by Don S. Davis), Shawn carefully examines family photos, noting things that help him to understand interfamily dynamics well. He also arranges to meet the attractive daughter of the magnate, and when Gus leaves in exasperation at his antics, Shawn takes her out on a date (unseen by viewers).
Shawn realizes that the kidnapped heir is likely not kidnapped at all, but more probably has faked his own disappearance—perhaps to bilk his family out of money. After some old-fashioned investigation, he finds the cabin where the heir is hiding with his dog and his best friend. He calls the police, claims to have had a psychic vision of where the heir is being held, and then leads them to the cabin. When the entire group walk into the cabin, the heir and his best friend are found dead in an apparent murder/suicide. Gus is ill at the sight. Shawn realizes for a moment that he might have gotten in a bit deeper than he intended.
Dulé Hill as Barton 'Gus' GusterThe police are convinced that the murder/suicide happened exactly as it appears, but Shawn is concerned that there might be more to the story. After the police tell him that the case is closed and he shouldn't investigate further, he risks their displeasure by continuing to pursue his hunch. He convinces Junior Detective Juliet O'Hara to help him. While they are discussing the case in the police firing range, it is revealed that Shawn is a crack shot with a pistol—putting a bullet through all of the same holes that Juliet had previously made in a target paper.
Shawn confronts the textile magnate with his suspicions that the magnate himself was involved in the murder. The magnate angrily denies this and has Shawn thrown out of his house. Shawn calls the police on himself, and when they show up, he makes a scene, pretending to have had a psychic vision. It seems that Shawn has noticed a cut on the magnate's arm, and Gus has also found some medication used to treat dog bites in the magnate's bathroom. At Shawn's instruction, the police check the magnate's arm for a dog bite, find that he indeed has one, and arrest him. The dog bite has come from his son's prized pet dog who tried to protect his son.
Corbin Bernsen as Henry SpencerAfter his triumph with this case, Shawn returns to the police station. His father, who has been very skeptical of Shawn's ability to pull off what he knows is an act, is just leaving the Interim Chief's office. She was doing a background check on him. To Shawn's surprise, his father backed up Shawn's assertion that he had a psychic "gift". The police hire him on for a second case. When Shawn is leaving, his father stops him outside and tells him that he won't cover for Shawn again. His stern manner is belied by the sheaf of newspaper clippings about Shawn that Shawn notes on his father's car-seat. Realizing that his father is proud of him but won't say it, Shawn adopts their typical brusque tone with each other so as not to embarrass his dad, and tells him that he wouldn't expect any further favors from his father.
In the final scene, Shawn takes Gus to his new office, for which he has signed a six month lease (also forging Gus's name on the lease). The name of his new agency is "Psych". Gus notes the irony of the double entendre, but reluctantly agrees to the partnership
This show is really good a boy who is taught to have a photographic memory is funny. His father who taught him to master this skill, a lousy father though. However the show PSYHC is really good. Like the first episode where he trys to find a rich boy who has been kidnapped. He searches through the rich people's garbage and finds a new cd case so he pockets it. That is totally original. PSYHC and Monk will do the USA Network Very good. Both are Hilarious, smart, and original. No other network has a cop with OCD and a private "eye" detective with a photographic memory. The USA Network is obviously doing something right. I highly recommend both Shows!!
I must say I was surprised. Small but smart jokes and well played out through the episode. While there is a lot of "cop shows" out there this one is taking a different angle. Now while the first episode shows a great introduction I am on the thin line in where the show will go. While it could play out to be innovative I don't see how. The main character will of coarse have problems with his father but that's not a lot of fuel for a full season. His side kick has little promise so I'm not sure if he will hurt or enhance the show. In the end what drives these kinds of shows is what drives the character outside of there job and with little drama in his life I don't see people bonding with the character. I mean the fake psychic thing is cool but about eight episode in I'm sure we will all warm up to it and start looking for that intangible that makes it a much watch.
Definately can progress into a big hit. Durring the first episode, I was laughing so much I missed some of the scenes. I still was able to see enough of to know that what I was watching could very well be history in the making. James Roday plays Shawn spencer, a person who has an eye for detail and has to fake being a Psychic for the police to make them believe that he didn't commit a crime. Shawn shows a small resemblance to Monk in the way they both use details solve crimes. Only diference is the obsesiveness of Monk, and that Shawn has to fake being a Psychic. Definately something worth givving a try and could easily go up in rattings if the plot is handled corectly.
Definitely has possibilities, but there\'s a lightness that seems a bit lightheaded rather than light hearted. Dulle Hall\'s sidekick role makes him seem kind of dull-witted, too. Can\'t put my finger on it, but the characters may lack enough depth and intelligence to be really intriguing. Perhaps it\'s going for satire: psychics helping incompetant police, sidekicks, demandindg fathers, inadequate sons, etc. But this show is just not captivating. It\'s worth another few viewings, however, to see if it can develop and meet my expectations. Otherwise, it\'s just another cop show. And who needs that? I am rooting for it because I like good TV.
Excellent Show with good humour, About a Guy who pretends to by a phyic but really is just a Clever Person.. As he works for the Police and with his trusty sidekick solves numeorus puzzling crimes. A few big name faces make their appearance. Well acted very witty and a pleasure to watch. I think it will only get better after the pilot, both main characters interact very well onscreen. My only little concern is that sometimes the humour seems to be a little over the top but apart from that excellent. I see this show getting very popular real soon
I liked this show and will more than likely watch it every week, it wasn't your usual crime drama which is why it was so good. It has a lot of humor and I love the way Shawn plays up the whole phony Psychic thing. It really makes you wonder about psychics. Shawn just is great at looking at and memorizing everything around him, which would make him a fantastic detective, I'm sure we'll see more throughout the season, but he won't give his father the satisfaction of becoming a cop. I loved the scenes between Shawn and his father, Corbin Bernson is great in this role. This show really does compliment Monk and so I personally think USA has another hit on it's hands.
