The world’s most dynamic, and oddball, detective duo get more than they bargained for when they take on con-artists, masked vigilantes and Darth Vader collectibles in the wild sixth season of Psych. Fake “psychic detective” Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his best bud, Burton “Gus” Guster (Dulé Hill), go undercover, behind the scenes and over the top to solve some of the most off the wall crimes imaginable. But how long can these super sleuths keep their psychic secret safe? Guest starring William Shatner (Boston Legal), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride), Molly Ringwald (The Breakfast Club) and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon franchise), re-live the laughs, thrills and mind-boggling mysteries uninterrupted and back-to-back in all 16 episodes of the totally unique and unpredictable series that will keep you guessing just whodunit.
In the sixth season of USA's Psych, police consultant Shawn (James Roday) and detective Jules (Maggie Lawson) come clean about their relationship, but it doesn't change the tone in any way, since Shawn remains as much of a goofball as ever (her strained relationship with her father, played by William Shatner, however, lends the usually sunny character a darker dimension). Initially uncomfortable with the situation, Gus (Dulé Hill) and Lassie (Timothy Omundson) enjoy a little romance of their own--the episode in which the two go clubbing with Henry (Corbin Bernsen) represents one of the series' funniest.
All the while, the cases keep coming, and the show is at its best when it keeps things light, as in the episodes that draw from comic books ("The Amazing Psych-Man & Tap-Man, Issue #2"), horror movies ("Heeeeere's Lassy"), and The Hangover ("Last Night Gus"). In the latter, the guys, including Woody, the coroner (recurring guest star Kurt Fuller, most recently seen in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris), retrace their steps after someone spikes their drinks. Because they don't remember anything from the night before, they must interpret strange clues, like Lassie's black eye, Shawn's unfamiliar shoes, and Woody's powdery face (apparently, he licked a shelf full of donuts). Psych also has fun with the casting by hiring Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys) for a vampire-themed installment ("This Episode Sucks"). That said, not everything works, like the Skype episode ("Let's Doo-Wop It Again") and the return of Cary Elwes's master thief Despereaux, who isn't as entertaining as intended, but those are minor quibbles when everything else works so well. The extensive special features offer deleted and extended scenes, gag reels, video introductions, and audio commentaries with the entire cast. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

You get to see the relationship between Shawn and Juliet really begin to blossom while still staying true to the characters. Lassiter just keeps becoming a better and better character.
So, the basic premise is that Shawn's dad was the lead investigator in what remained an unsolved murder. Flash forward to present day and the body of the person they suspected to have been murdered was found along with the body of the alleged murderer's dad as well. Things get dangerous in this one, and although the murders are solved, the ending begins with Shawn's dad retiring for good as a cop and as a consultant, leaving it all behind in a state of depression...and then the ending happened, and i will just say, it was completely unexpected and the perfect cliffhanger as well. You will think upon it for a while afterwards.
Our NEW CD package was received 3 days after I had filed my complaint on Amazon.com thru my account. PLEASE NOTE: Amazon by far is the standard of efficient and excellent CUSTOMER SERVICE. No where else can you do this without having to call someone or go through hoops to explain something is broken. Wow - I am beyond satisfied - I can do an Amazon Commercial for free just to tell everyone HOW AWESOME THE customer experience is. Just so we are all on the same page, my definition of awesome is as follows:
1) I order something online,
2) I receive it in good order at my House,
3) If not in good order, I go back to my Account online and look for a way to provide feedback that directly tied to the "not in good order" product. AND IT'S THERE ON AMAZON.COM in "Your Orders".
4) I am able to TYPE a summary of my problem and I expect it to be taken cared of (meaning, I do not want to be on the phone to tell someone or ask someone) - simply since I ordered it without speaking to someone. AND IT'S THERE ON AMAZON.COM.
5) That I also have an option to "click" somebody come get this from my House since it is NOT my fault it was broken as it arrived broken. AND YES, AMAZON.COM has that TOO.....seriously (I was beyond shocked but very very HAPPY with Amazon and the options - WOW is all I can say).
In summary, while other online retailers can do maybe a few good things - NONE offer what I just typed above. Thank you Amazon.com - you are the GOLDEN STANDARD for which all companies both Online and Physical should be based or modeled after.
PSYCH's calling card is its self-aware shamelessness and its wit and its relentless pop culture referencing. Given, I roll my eyes at Shawn's trademark raising of hand to temple as he demonstrates his "psychic" skills. Thankfully, his and Gus's goofing around frequently generates big laughs. (For a few weeks, I was going around, saying "C'mon, son" to everyone.) And just when you think they've wandered too far into silly territory again, here comes the shocking season finale. PSYCH ending on a dark note? You know that's right.
My favorite Season 6 episodes:
- "Shawn Rescues Darth Vader" - Mostly for Shawn's polygraph test sequence but also for Shawn's casual abuse of his temporary diplomatic immunity.
- "Last Night Gus" - PSYCH's nod to THE HANGOVER; After attending a cop's retirement party, Shawn, Gus, Lassie, and SBPD's weirdo coroner Woody Strode wake up with no recollection of what happened the night before.
- "The Amazing Psych-Man & Tap Man, Issue #2" - PSYCH's nod to superheroes; A costumed vigilante called The Mantis is nabbing crooks and making SBPD and Shawn look superfluous. Gus as "Tap Man" is freakin' hilarious.
- "In for a Penny..." - Awesome, awesome Juliet O'Hara-centric episode. William Shatner plays Juliet's estranged con artist dad who's trying to ingratiate himself back into her life. Fantastic emotional beats delivered by Shatner and Maggie Lawson.
- "Neil Simon's Lover's Retreat" - Another great ep. Shawn and Juliet go on a romantic getaway, so naturally a corpse pops up. Keep an eye out for the nightclub sequence as Gus, Lassie, and Henry compete in a bet.
- "Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger" - PSYCH'S nod to Indiana Jones, but also featuring the return of dashing master thief Pierre Despereaux (Cary Elwes). Also guest-stars John Rhys-Davies ("Sallah" from the Indiana Jones films).
- "Heeeeere's Lassie" - Focus on Det. Carlton Lassiter who hires Shawn and Gus to investigate a possible haunting in his new condo. This episode spoofs THE SHINING, POLTERGEIST, ROSEMARY'S BABY, and even GHOSTBUSTERS. Guest-starring William Shatner who shows up for a few minutes.
- "Santabarbaratown" - PSYCH's nod to film noir like CHINATOWN and L.A. CONFIDENTIAL.
PSYCH - THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON has its 16 episodes on 4 discs. The bonus stuff:
- Cast & Crew Audio Commentaries on 8 episodes: "Shawn Rescues Darth Vader," "Last Night Gus," "This Episode Sucks," "In for a Penny...," "Neil Simon's Lover's Retreat," "Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger," "Heeeeere's Lassie," and "Santabarbaratown"
- Writers' Video Commentaries on all 16 episodes
- Deleted/Extended Scenes for 11 episodes
- Gag Reel (00:04:11 minutes)
- 4 montage clips of Shawn and Gus's shenanigans focusing on their favorite phrases, names Shawn comes up with to introduce Gus to strangers, Gus's food obsession, jokes that didn't make the final cut, and pop culture references (totaling 00:05:20 minutes)
- "Underground with PSYCH" - look at the set of the hidden underground treasure room from "Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger" with production designer Eric Norlin and art director Jennifer Donaldson (00:04:04 minutes)
- "Psychouts - California Survivor Man Audition Applicant #633" - Dule Hill, James Roday, and Maggie Lawson goof around in a 40-second promotional skit
Not enough? Okay, then throw in some skeezy William Shatner, a tap-dancing/baseball-catching superhero duo, and some Indiana Jonesin' with Despereaux. Still nothing? Fine, we'll include hijinks when Gus joins a cult, Lassie gets a girlfriend, and Shawn checks into the looney bin.
Still not convinced? Then add some mystery white powder, an explosion-propelled leap into a swimming pool, a murdered donut, a crushed Blueberry, and you've got yourself another sweet season of Psych.
