Psych is by far my favorite show, so forgive me if I'm a little biased. This season has been great in terms of episode quality (granted some plots are weaker than others, such as the episode with John Cena, but that's to be expected). The acting by the main cast is nothing short of wonderful, and the writing, although often silly, is never stupid. The silliness give Psych much of its charm without making it annoying to watch. As far as over-arching stories go, season 4 has been great for character development, with many characters breaking new ground. We get more character back stories, especially for Juliet, which is rewarding for devoted fans.
As far as the DVD itself goes, although it has not been released, if it is the same as the last three seasons, there should be no complaint. The packaging is solid and never annoying (I actually think it's pretty cool), the commentaries on selected episodes are always very funny and enjoyable, as are the podcast and video commentaries. Any fan of Psych will want to buy this season and add it to his/her collection.

What can I say about such a series, I could call it funny, witty, and wonderful. But using these words almost underminds how great a show Psych is. It has such interesting, funny plotlines that may keep you on the edge of your seat while laughing. The show follows fake-psychic detective Shawn Spencer has he solves cases for the police department as well as others. But he can't do this alone. He gets help from his reluctant partner Gus, Junior Detective Juliet O'Hara, his dad Henry, extremely doubting detective Carlton Lassiter, and police chief Karen Vick. Season 4, itself, starts out with a great opener (Episode 4.1 Expedition British Columbia) in which Gus and Shawn take a trip to Canada for some fun, but Shawn can't help but to solve another crime using his fake psychic and real detective skills. And then there are more great episodes. But one of my personal favorites is episode 4.7 High Top Fade Out, where we learn a little more about Gus. We learn that he was in a college acapella band. And things get a little crazy when one of his ex-band mates is murdered. And then the fall finale episode 4.9 Shawn Takes a Shot in the Dark. Maybe the most exciting episodes in the series, the fall finale shows Shawn being kidnapped by- well I won't ruin the surprise for you- and everyone of his friends and co-workers pool together to find him and solve the case.

But this isn't just a review of the season, but a review of the DVD. The DVD is pretty much the same has past releases. My favorite part of the "Psych" releases, aside from the show itself, is the packaging. The packaging is unique, just like the show, coming in a cardboard open foldout, which contains a disc on each side of the foldout, which are on hinges and open like doors to show the other two discs.

Psych is like the quirky child in your family of TV shows, and with Season 4, this quirky child is gaining some maturity. The character driven plots seem to be running deeper, and we see different sides to our favorite Santa Barbara residents. There's a lot of good relationships, some movie-esque episodes, still no-need for a laugh track, more action, and another season finale that doesn't disappoint.

Can't wait to add this set to the collection. :)

Psych is an all-around great show - the cast, the characters, the acting, the directing - but Season 4 was a fantastic season. As you get to see more about the relationships between the characters and they show you a bit more about how they all interact, it just gets better and better. The finale was hands-down the most amazing episode (stellar job directing, James Roday!), but some other favorites from the season are: Thrill Seekers and Hell Raisers (one of my all-time favorites), Death is in the Air, A Very Juliet Episode, High-Top Fade Out and The Devil's in the Details...and in the Upstairs Bedroom. I can't say enough about this show and I will be a fan for life. If you like a little bit of drama mixed with a hearty dose of humor and 80s references, you will love this show. I definitely recommend it!

No matter how much time goes by, Gus and Shawn still attract the weirdest cases on TV. So unsurprisingly, "Psych Season 4" is just crammed with hilarious faux-psychic mysteries -- it gets a little dark in places and shows a few signs of wear and tear, but the rest of the season is full of werewolves, westerns and Bollywood. Well, not all in the same episode.

A Vancouver ski vacation is interrupted when Shawn (James Roday) spots the brilliant art thief Pierre Despereaux, so now he and Gus (Dule Hill) must figure out a way to thwart the perfect crime. To make matters worse, Lassiter (Timothy Ormundson) is determined to capture Despereaux himself, since he's been after the thief for years.

And back in Santa Barbara, the boys have a slew of other weird cases -- possible demonic possession, a murdered billionaire who asks Shawn to solve his murder, a haunted Wild West town, a drug lord, Gus' college a capella quartet, a soldier's mysterious death, a whitewater rafting disaster, tracking down Juliet's college boyfriend, a deadly virus, a shark attack, a Bollywood curse, and a man who believes he's a werewolf.

On the darker side of things: Shawn ends up kidnapped by a thug during the course of a case, and must find a way to tell his friends where he is. And the gang is dragged into ANOTHER game of cat-and-mouse -- Mr Yin ("dance partner" of the insane Yang) starts killing people in Hitchcockian style.

"Psych Season Four" is perhaps the most uneven season that this show has had thus far -- when it's good it's very VERY good, but a few of the episodes are kind of flawed ("Think Tank"). Fortunately, "Psych" at its worst is still a deliciously weird experience -- the writers are still exceptional at writing twisty-turny mysteries full of strange twists.
