  • In this episode Shawn and Gus have to go to a Comic-Con to solve the abductions. Very funny episode, with lots of references to the Batman universe, and special participation of George Takei.

    A kid have disapeared and Shawn steps in to solve it. The leads take them to a Comics convention with all the typical (and not so typical) geeks. In order to entre the convention, Shawn lies that they are George Takei's assistants. Very funny scene when Shawn calls Takei Chekov and Scotty. Once inside, Shawn and Gus have to find the friends of the missing kid.
    To do that, Gus take the stage and make a number as a psych, impressing the easily impressable crownd. Very funny moment.
    After that, the story unravels, with lots of references to the Batman universe, on the names of the characters and the reference to a certain movie with nipples on the heroes costumes.
    George Takei special appearance is highlighted by its funny conversations with Shawn, as a very very annoying star with his somewhat exotic requests.
