    Let me say, I LOVE this show. it is one of my favorites. I even watch the repeats. Love the dialouge, but this episode fell a little flat for me. I was happy they got rid of Abigail, I liked the character, but I am waiting patiently for my Jules/Shawn pairing. I just thought they way the did it felt rushed & weird. And the arc with Cena as Juliet's brother, because that was not finished at the end... too heavy for this series. I was SO sompletely jazzed for this episode & whiole some of it was funny & interesting, I was still disappointed. I hope next week gets better, until then I have my repeats.moreless
  • If there's one thing this episode got right, it was the title; because I really couldn't handle it.

    I was hoping beyond hope that Psych would come back from an extremely mediocre first half and score some points to win the game. Does a football analogy work? (I'm just too hyped for the super bowl. :D) Eh, maybe not. Unless Psych is going to win the in the last few minutes of the game. I'd hope they score sooner than that, but regardless they NEED to score some points to save this show.



    "You Can't Handle This Episode," was probably the worst episode this season; though a few others rival for the grand prize. The humor so far this season has hit an all time low. Granted it's still warranted a chuckle or a grin. Unfortunately for this-return from break-episode, my chuckles and grins turned to half-snorts and grimaces. I only truly laughed twice in the episode. While the guest character wasn't a bad choice, it just didn't quite work out. I'm not talking about the cliche super-spy-man character, Psych seems to handle cliches pretty well, but the chemistry in this case was not at all there. Notably the scene where Cena's character is telling of his numerous adventures as a spy. It felt like a campfire story plucked reluctantly from a kids show. Like story about the time that I caught a fish THIS BIG! But, seriously now. That one shoot-out scene had me busting a gut. But, wasn't that supposed to be serious?



    I just hope this show can salvage what it's got left and come around with some half-decent episodes to finish off the season. Thinking about it, I'm not sure why I've even come back to this show. Maybe it's because I remember what Psych used to be. Who knows why it's changed so much. Maybe, actors doing too much script writing or something along those lines. Though, there's the possibility that they've just run out of ideas. If that's truly the case I hope the end is sooner rather than later. I'd hate to sit through a long, sad demise.moreless
  • John Cena guests in a funny episode.

    8.0
    With former WWE Champion John Cena guest starring hopefully Psych gained some new fans who may have tuned in for the first time. Cena may not be the next Al Pacino, but his comedic timing was strong here and he definitely excelled more than most big name guest stars have prior to him who were awful for the most part (Cybill Shepherd anyone?). I would've liked to see him as a recurring character, but if you watched this episode you'll know why that probably will not be the case.



    The lovey dubby scene at the end rubbed me the wrong way as it was just so un-Psych, but the good storyline that preceded it, the guest appearance by The Unit's Robert Patrick, and just the fact that the show did not disappoint in its return from hiatus more than made up for that.



    Nice episode tonight.moreless
