The lines are smart, witty, fast, and funny.

Other than watching my Yankees baseball, it is presently the only show on television that I very much look forward to every week, and will actually plan around.

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. That's what makes it so enjoyable.

Shawn Spencer (James Roday) is a loser. He's drifted from job to job ever since graduating from high school. The one thing he absolutely knows he doesn't want to do is become a cop. That's what his dad (Corbin Bernsen) has been training him to do since he was a little kid. Growing up, he learned how to observe every little detail at a glance.

Even though Shawn has no desire to be a cop, he can't stop himself from calling in tips to the local police based on news reports he sees. After one such tip, he finds himself under suspicion for knowing too much. He quickly talks his way out of it by pretending to be a psychic. In fact, he's so convincing, Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) hires him on a part time basis to help with difficult cases.

Shawn is usually teamed up with Detectives Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) and O'Hara (Maggie Lawson). Lassiter doesn't believe a word Shawn says and usually tries to trip him up. O'Hara is skeptical but can't deny what she sees Shawn pull off time after time.

Also along for the ride is Shawn's best friend Gus (Dule Hill). Gus is reluctant to get involved in the cases, but Shawn drags him in anyway. And the two have to deal with plenty of exciting cases. There's a heir who is kidnapped, murders at a spelling bee and a comic convention, dastardly deeds at a high society wedding, and an urban legend that may be repeating itself.

This show is a blend of comedy and mystery. It airs right after Monk on USA, and is a perfect fit. While that show is often melancholy, this one is high energy. In fact, sometimes, it's a bit too over the top. But most of the time it's fun.

As with many shows, it took a little while to hit its stride.

Okay, other reviews have explained the premise, so I won't re-hash that. Some of the things that impress me the most about this show is the level of quality, and that it is consistently entertaining. Sadly, as a Monk viewer, I cannot say that the past couple of seasons of that show have been of a consistent high quality - some have been downright painful to watch, for which I blame different writers and directing. Hopefully PYSCH will be able to maintain its quality of writing, acting, and directing. The cast of PSYCH is superb - beyond the two leads, we have an excellent supporting cast, plus Corbin Bernson just lends something to the show that just seems to take it up a notch on the grin-factor scale. The writing is SO good - rarely do I watch even good episodes of MONK twice, but with PSYCH, I actually enjoy watching episodes through multiple times, and will share scenes with friends (eg. the cat in the car with Gus). The show doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is, but what it is, is a sharp, witty, snappily-paced crime mystery show. Other than watching my Yankees baseball, it is presently the only show on television that I very much look forward to every week, and will actually plan around. I hope that you will find it enjoyable, too.

Okay so I love Psych, I am ADDICTED I can not wait until it comes out on DVD. So here it does not mention any extras, but I was at USA's website and clicked on the link for the Psych DVD and it says:

USA Network's latest eccentric sleuth, Shawn Spencer (James Roday), is on the case again with the Season One release of the hit show Psych on DVD. Relive every hilarious moment as quick-witted Shawn and his skeptical best friend Gus (Dulé Hill) race to solve crimes while deceiving the police into believing in Shawn's so-called psychic abilities. And take a deeper look into the Psychfiles with exclusive bonus features, including a behind the scenes featurette, actor audition tapes, character profiles, and much more. Also featured in this must-own 4-disc collection is the 2-hour international pilot with 15-minutes of additional footage!

Hope that helps...I can't wait for it to come out!
