Episode Summary

It's another undercover assignment for Shawn and Gus when SBPD asks them to infiltrate the local mental hospital. They must prove that the billionaire recently found "not guilty by reason of insanity" after he murdered his assistant is just as sane as they are. Well, as sane as Gus at least.

  • Another perfect episode

    This episode is well written and funny.

    It starts when Lassy throws himself a party and invites everyone to celebrate his solo case-solving and it turns out that the case had a loop and they main suspect was sent to a psychiatric facility and they doubt that he was faking it in order to get out of the crimes.

    Henry decides to send Shawn as an undercover patient to look closer at the suspect and decide if he is truly guilty or not. The funny thing is that Gus is sent there too as an undercover Janitor and security guy. It is hilarious when he follows Shawn and restrains him.

    Another funny moment when Gus falls in love with a hot girl that has multiple personalities.

    Shawn solves the crime and discovers that the victims young brother is the one who was giving him wrong pills and blame the crimes on him.

    Kenny G solves the crime again... I mean Shawn :)

  • Hmmm....

    What annoyed me with this episode is that THEY COULD'VE DONE SO MUCH MORE!!! I mean Shawn in a mental institution?! I was anticipating an episode like this!

    I guess it was okay, not too bad, but it lacked energy and they should've played around with the idea a lot more. I would've thought they'd at least come up with a billion movie references!

    When the episode was trying to be a comedy it was funny, the first half plus, and then it turned into a basic procedural and that is when it got a little predictable and boring. I still really enjoyed this show tonight. These alternate universe, movie parodies usually excel and this one really did tonight.

    Not one of the best this season, but still a strong, humorous episode.
