  • Shawn almost gets caught...

    but then doesn't. I was so hoping the would make an episode like this. I love how we find out that Shawn's dad taught him more skills then just being observant. I think it was incredible how he handled that polygraph test.

    I also loved Lassiter's face when Shawn the test showed that Shawn was telling the truth. I was even more amused at the end how Lassiter threatened Shawn that he would hurt him if he was mean to Juliet.

    An awesome first episode!!! I can't wait to see when the rest of the season has in store.moreless

    A lot of people were high on the episode because of Shawn admitting that he loves Juliet. Yes, I suppose you can make a case for that being a big moment, but I don't really watch the show for that, I watch it for the comedy and the cases. And tonight we got a good case, an intriguing case, and I was impressed with the season premiere. Not a great episode, but it got the job done.moreless
