Psych Season One

Boy, oh, Boy! Finally, I finished my first American Drama··

Psych Season One (the show finished its final season, Season Eight, in March) : 16 episodes

Genres. Mystery Fun, "Supernatural Ability:I'm Psychic" , Comedy

Shawn Spencer... a present day man with extraordinary observation skills and has a near-photographic memory... all because of his dad's training; his old man is now a retired police officer but still gives in to some of Shawn' s requests.

The main storyline is clearly evident in the first two episodes..

Storyline: After Shawn Spencer calls the police to give some tips for a store robbery, the police accuse him of having such hardcore "inside" evidence and information! Now their lead suspect, Spencer presents himself as a psychic to avoid hours in a holding cell... but how long will he last under the police force's eyes?

Gus, just take the offer!
(Shawn opened a detective agency, psych)

Something I Learned From Psych:
The only thing that can leave a crime scene is a least a cute one!

The show is really one of the best... it's so good it has finished 8 seasons! The comedy and a very memorable cast, what more could you ask for? Below are the episode titles:

  1. Pilot Part 1
  2. Pilot Part 2
  3. Spellingg Bee
  4. Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Piece
  5. Woman Seeking Dead Husband, Smokers Okay
  6. 9Lives
  7. Weekend Warrior
  8. Who Ya Gonna Call?
  9. Shawn Vs The Red Phantom
  10. Forget Me Not
  11. From the Earth to the Starbucks
  12. He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves...
  13. Cloudy With a Chance of Murder
  14. Game, Set, Muuurder?
  15. Poker? I Barely Know Her
  16. Scary Sherry: Bianca' s Toast
Some of these cases were really interesting or featured some pretty whacko crooks. But the case will be cracked by Shawn Spencer and his ways! There will almost be comedy in every episode-- it's all spot on , but not like slapstick... maybe that's for standup? 

Anyway, the series stars:
James Roday AS Shawn Spencer
Dulé Hill AS Burton "Gus" Guster
Timothy Omundson AS Detective Carlton "Lassi" Lassiter
Kirsten Nelson AS Interim Chief Karen Vick (special guest and cameo appearances)
Maggie Lawson AS Juliet "Jules" O'Hara
And 2-4 Young Shawn Spencers...

Another note: Every episode begins with young Shawn Spencer who gets his training from his dad with his problems... like, "Where is the prize in the cereal box?!" And young Gus, his childhood friend, is that friend who only wants to lure you to do the right things.
