Shawn Spencer (James Roday) was trained to be ultra-observant and intelligent by his strict, humorless father Henry (Corbin Bernsen), who wanted him to be a cop. And though he is determined never to be a cop (he doesn't even have a steady job), Shawn can glimpse clues and details that nobody else notices -- even the police.
But it backfires when he reports his observations to the police, and is arrested as a suspect. To save himself, Shawn pretends to be a psychic -- and the gimmick works so well that he decides to do it professionally. So he drags his very reluctant pal Gus (Dulé Hill) out of a boring job, and they end up regularly hired by the police chief, despite the skepticism of Carl Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), who doesn't buy their act.
And so they set out into a variety of cases: death at a spelling bee, a haunting at a sorority house, a wedding tainted by theft and murder, a ghostly stalking, a cat used as a witness, Civil war reenactments, a comic book convention (where they mess with George Takei's head), alien abductions, speed dating, underground poker, and organizing a surprise birthday party for Lassiter.
Most shows aren't really able to strike a balance between comedy and mystery, but "Psych" does. The mysteries are light and fun, and the people making it actually seem to be enjoying themselves -- no hardcore crimes, gore and grimness. That's what makes it so enjoyable.Read more ›
Shawn and Gus are so genuine that it really warms your heart to watch them. Their banter is funny, their friendship is real, and Shawn's sense of humor comes from left field sometimes, completely unexpected and hilarious.
All in all, it's the most original show that I've seen, and I absolutely love it.
Psych tells the story of Shawn Spencer, the tv's first "fake psychic detective", who has been trained relentlessly by his snarky, sarcastic cop father, Henry, to notice even the most minute of details. He's so good at it, in fact, he can solve police cases from watching the evening news for two minutes. That's about as close as he's willing to get to a badge, though; Henry might have liked nothing more than to see his son follow in his footsteps, but Shawn wants nothing less. But his fun hobby soon becomes his even more absurd reality when he is brought in for questioning about just how he knew what he did about a electronic store robbery. Instead of attempting to explain to annoyed police officers who don't want to hear about how some thirty year old slacker who can't even hold a steady job can do theirs better than they can, Shawn does what he does best: he lies and tells them he's a psychic. But before he can get out the door of the station to gloat, he is asked to help Santa Barbara's finest find a millionaire's missing son.
Enter Burton "Gus" Guster, Shawn's best friend and lifelong partner in crime, who is a sucessful pharmaceuticals representitive and wants no part in Shawn's scheme. Too bad he can't say no to his best bud (and only friend outside of work).
After solving the missing millionaire-turned-murder case, Shawn decides that he has finally found his calling and opens Psych, his new pet project.Read more ›
