By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 22, 2010
Format: DVD
We've been with fake psychic Shawn Spencer and his long-suffering buddy Burton Guster for five years, but this hilarious mystery-comedy shows no signs of slowing down. "Psych Season 5" has some new additions to the plot -- mainly in Shawn's love life -- but most of the time it's the usual whirl of bizarre crimes and quirky solutions.

Ever since Henry was put in charge of police consultants, work has been scarce. So Shawn (James Roday) elbows his way into the case of a Chinese diplomat's missing daughter... and ends up mired in the Triads, martial-arts, and a very unusual romance. And that was actually the NORMAL case.

As the season goes on, Shawn and Gus must deal with alien abductions, a professional profiler, a gang of prison escapees, partner-swapping, gigolo deaths, a pair of retired cops, a spy who's been framed, a dead body in a haunted house, an art thief determined to do one last job, a framed polar bear, and a stint at the police academy. Finally, Shawn and Gus do battle with Mr. Yin one last time, over the life of a college student -- and see his true face.

Best parts of the season: the boys take a trip to "Dual Spires" (Twin Peaks in all but name); and after Shawn botches an important case, he has a "It's a Wonderful Life" experience where a grouchy Tony Cox shows him what Santa Barbara would be like if he hadn't returned.

It's entirely possibly that "Psych Season 5" is, if not the best season so far, then certainly one of the best. Fortunately creator Steve Franks is sticking to the old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," and this season doesn't deviate from what works -- there's still lots of comedy, spoofery, silly dialogue ("That would mean we're at war with the machines!") and enjoyable mysteries.

We've enjoyed Psych since the first episode. I'm sure you know the backstory. A policeman's son who was trained to be observant during his youth notices a few clues on TV coverage of a crime scene. When he phones in his tips, he makes himself a person of interest in the case. To dodge becoming a full-fledged suspect, he makes up a story about being psychic, and the show is born.

For five years we've followed the merry adventures of Shawn and Gus as they catch murderers, taunt "Lassie", ogle girls, and drop pop culture references that at times go well beyond their ages. LOL

I thought that seasons three and four arguably had become a little stale. Not so stale that we didn't still enjoy and laugh at the shows, but they at least weren't as surprising in the mysteries and clever dialogue as when the show was brand new. Perhaps Shawn's antics when he went into a fake psychic episode had begun to wear thin. I think the creative forces behind the show also came to that conclusion, as in season five Shawn is more disposed to calmly putting his fingers to his temple to report a "psychic clue", rather than launch into hysterical dialogue and action.

Whatever the case, the show came roaring back in season five with some of the very best episodes of the entire series. Highlights:

"Extradition II", with Cary Elwes as the suave and super skilled thief Pierre Despereaux, was inspired.

"In Plain Fright" puts Shawn and Gus at odds with virtually everyone when Shawn sees a murder on a Halloween ride at the local amusement park, but the absence of the body hinders his desire to investigate and to call in backup.

The fifth season of "Psych" continues to be creative and very funny. Although I've always felt that the mysteries are a bit predictable, it's the fun of hearing Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) quip their way to their conclusion as to who and why the bad guys (or gals) did what they did.

With the fifth season Shawn's dad (Corbin Bernsen)is brought back to the force part time as a consultant and he isn't going to hire his son's detective agency at the drop of a hat like in the past. Shawn must earn the opportunity again. Shawn also has competition for Juliet (Maggie Lawson)the wealthy "profiler" Declan (Nestor Carbonell from "Lost"). It's another witty, fun season.

The fifth season has a fun parody of "Twin Peaks" entitled "Dual Spires".

The DVD set has a nice looking transfer of the show (although I'm a bit perplexed as to why this show hasn't shown up on Blu-ray yet since it is shot in and transferred to DVD in high def). Colors are strong throughout and detail quite nice.

Special features We get deleted scenes, a gag reel, video/audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes feature commentary.

All sixteen episodes are presented on four discs with english subtitles. Recommended.

Since we're baring our souls today, I admit it took me time to get into PSYCH. When it debuted, first impression suggested a flighty tone, and I reasoned: If Shawn Spenser was this half-ass about his claim to psychic prowess, I couldn't see how the Santa Barbara Police Department could take him seriously. So over the years I saw random episodes here and there, but it wasn't must-see television in my household. I didn't think it had staying power. Six years later, here's PSYCH still going strong, and here's egg on my face. When my girlfriend placed me in a devastating leg scissor lock I was forced to watch the entirety of Season 5. And now I'm hooked.

PSYCH is currently the longest running show on the USA network, and it's been renewed for a seventh and eighth season. If you're a fellow neophyte, the premise goes like so: Feckless and immature, Shawn Spencer (James Roday) parlays his photographic memory and his keen observational skills into posing as a psychic detective. With his best friend Gus (Dulé Hill), he solves mysteries while acting as a consultant for the SBPD.

Here's the sitch as Season 5 opens: A traumatized Detective Juliet O'Hara (Maggie Lawson) is still recovering from her harrowing experience in the episode, "Mr. Yin Presents..." (the Season 4 finale). Shawn's exacting ex-cop dad, Henry Spencer (corbin Bernsen), is now in charge of SBPD's consultants. But if Shawn thought that meant a heftier caseload for him and Gus, no, nuh-uh. Still, there's no dearth of murder in sunny Santa Barbara.

Turns out, I grinned all day at the endless shenanigans Shawn and Gus get up to. Roday and Hill exhibit fantastic buddy chemistry and impeccable comic timing.
