This show is just such fun to watch! It's the perfect companion to "Monk" on Friday nights and it always puts me in a good mood. The show takes place in beautiful Santa Barbara and is about Shawn, a twenty-something year-old guy who's developed excellent observational skills under the teachings of his retired cop father. He can't seem to hold down a regular job, so with the help of his childhood best friend, Gus, he opens a psychic detective agency. He uses his observational/detective skills to pretend that he's having psyshic visions with the purpose of mooching cases off of the police force as their 'police psychic'. Of course, not everyone believes that he's an actual psychic, such as his father (with whom he has a strained relationship) and Lassiter, one of the police detectives on the force who is somewhat of a nemesis for Shawn. (Shawn likes to call him "Lassie".) Each episode begins with a young Shawn learning a new lesson (very reluctantly) from his father that ties into the mystery/plot of the episode. Corbin Bernsen does a wonderful job as Shawn's disapproving father and Dule Hill is spot-on as his straight-laced best friend, who has the best perplexed reactions to the crazy stunts Shawn likes to pull. (The expressions on his face are priceless.) "Psych" is truly delightful and one of the few shows on television that are such light-hearted fun. I'm so glad that it was picked up for a second season and I'll definitely be looking forward to its return!

Actual detective shows are kind of hard to find now -- let alone a funny, well-written detective series with a hilarious twist. That's where "Psych" comes on, on the heels of "Monk." While it could use a bit more ironing, this clever series does a good job blending comedy and mystery, and gives us some lovably fradulent guys to follow the adventures of.

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.

What catches me off-guard with this show is that Shawn really could easily be snotty or bratty, especially in his interactions with Gus. Everything in his life goes right-- he can smooth-talk his way out of any situation, people like him, and besides his questionable psychic abilities, they think he's decent, and he's clever and witty. And yet none of this ever goes to his head. Instead, he approaches everything with charm and humor, and his excitement about cases and such reminds me of an 8-yr-old going to his first monster-truck rally.

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.

In a world where most of the new tv crime dramas are gory "how-done-it's" that strive to be "serious", Psych, like Monk before it, is a breath of fresh air to say the least.

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.
