  • There's Something About Mira

    The Good:

    -Lassiter competes with Juliet when he finds out that she scored higher than he did on the Detectives' exam. The two lose their enthusiasm, however, when they found out that Shawn got a perfect score on the test when he was fifteen.

    -It's fun to see Gus try to get the girl for once, especially since Mira is so unlike Gus.

    The Bad:

    -The episode lacks the excitement of some of the earlier episodes until the ending, which is anti-climactic.moreless
  • This episode was hilarious! :D

    I really enjoyed "There's Something About Mira". It was very funny. The scene where Gus met Mira was so funny. He had a stupid, dumbfounded look on his face. He looked ridiculous with that high-top fade (the hair cut) and a sweater vest. I loved the look on Gus' face as Shawn realized that Gus had been married. LOL

    Gus is just adorable when he's in love...or lust. His attraction to Mira was silly. By the way, I had to say that the guys looked cute playing baseball and golf. LOL

    Moving on, it was great to see Lassiter and Juliet acting like children again. Lassiter just has to be the top at everything. It's too bad that he felt threatened by Juliet's higher detective's exam score. I loved it when both Juliet and Lassiter realized that Shawn had outscored them both - when he was just a kid. I loved the ending, when Shawn made Gus look like a hero. I thought it was strange, however, that Mira never seemed sad that Jan had been killed. I also loved when Shawn was worried about Gus. Awww. :-)

    The only bad thing about this episode was that there was very little Henry. But I guess that's to be expected from time to time. I've just gotten so used to him being there for Shawn. What a great episode!moreless
  • It's good to see them again. But...

    There's something missing...

    I think they are improving their characters in this season, but the plot isn't.

    Yes, they've chemistry and both are charming. I always have a good time watching these guys. The Jokes are fine, however I'd like to see more elaborated stories.

    Do what detectives are supposed to do. Like in the first season.

    In the order hand, I really liked to see them back in 80's as kids.

    In this episode I enjoyed their golf and baseball styles and (maybe spoiler) the last picture showing Shawn getting married. I hope to see better stories. They deserve it. I love these characters.moreless
  • Great come back episode!

    In this episode an old flame (that Gus actually married!) comes back. And there really is something about this girl that compels men to do as she wants. The real problem is her missing fiance. The weird thing in this episode was that Shawn kept guessing wrong, but it was not a bad episode. The humor was good and plenty and there was an appearance from every character. Carlton and Juliet get into a little argument over who is the better detective and start competing to solve the case first. Cute! Overall it was a good episode and well worth the time of any Psych fan.moreless
