Psych

Recommended Posts

Darn. I was hoping Psych would make the cut.

Re-watching again thanks to Prime Video Psych was really good at giving good lines or parts to guest stars even ones who weren't the person who hired them on the case or villains. Like the janitor in From Earth to Starbucks popping up to tell Shawn he's doing it wrong when he's trying get into the room or in American Duos when Shawn and Gus show up and Gus says his line about being in the presence of a homicidal sociopath and the contestant immediately assumes he's talking about his brother "No, no, no. He's not crazy. We got a doctor's note and everything."

That is very sad.

I got the series a few years ago, after Netflix dropped it and before Amazon Prime Video started airing them. It's worth the reasonable price, and since I rewatch it over and over again, I'm happy. I think the movie is available separately? It wouldn't be part of the series, as it just came out last year, and it's a standalone movie. 

This topic will be one logistical nightmare after the new version, with all the episode talk, unpopular opinions, media talk, cast in other roles AND quotes in just this one single thread.

I do have it recorded from TV saved on my computer, but I couldn’t find it in dvd. 

I’m sad about the small threads. Expanding the number of threads was my favorite thing about switching from TWOP to Previously.

Its my fault too. I had my access to Psych cut off until recently when I learned I have Prime Video and on my TV! So just recently got back to watching Psych back to back.

When I don’t feel like watching something on my DVR, I always turn to Prime’s Psych. I have seasons 1-4 on dvd but they are somewhere in my garage and I’m too lazy to get them. Amazon really saved the day with picking it up once Netflix dropped it. Seasons 1-3 are still hilarious no matter how many times I have watched those episodes, but even the later seasons that I initially was not fond of has grown on me.

Me too. Its fun to listen too no matter how many times I watch it. The first three were the best followed by four, then five. Since getting prime video I've used it a lot when I'm trying to fall asleep or I'm having flare ups from my medical problems. Its nice to turn it on and listen to it for several episodes. Its still funny no matter how many times I watch it.

I (or Amazon) was wrong! The movie is in this set!

And because I’m rewatching and there’s no longer a quotes thread, a couple of gems from Lassie Did a Bad, Bad Thing.

Gus: Did you know before he stabbed a guy he was a life coach?

Shawn: Who would hire him as a life coach?

Gus: The guy he stabbed!

 

Lassie: Even sweet Lady Justice has abandoned me. Bitch.

It was really fun watching the first season and part of season two. Those were really great seasons! American Duos, Who Ya Gonna Call?, 9 Lives almost every episode is awesome and hilarious. The friendship and fun between Gus and Shawn is really awesome. I really like early Lassie and Juliet. Buzz is always great. The Chief is great. Plus seeing her cranky in Rob-A-Baby she's scary. I also really liked that her former nanny was her nephew who ended up being her nanny again by transferring to Santa Barbara for nursing. Its really nice touch. Watching Ghosts I missed Shawn mentioning he visited Alice from season one finale for helping in haunting Gus's boss. 

I know I've ranted about this before but Cybill Shepherd was so miscast. I'm not even sure it makes sense to have Shawn's mother alive. I tried to be opened minded when watching Ghosts. But there's no warmth in her. No warmth in her interactions with Shawn or with Henry. Plus Madeline makes no sense. She's psychologist but somehow  doesn't know that Shawn blames Henry for the divorce. How does she not know that? In the pilot episode Shawn mentions being with her helping her through the divorce. There's no way Shawn would even bothered to hid that he blamed Henry for it. Plus her reason for the divorce she comes off really selfish. A good job opportunity came up so she thought her son in his senior year would totally take it well that his parents suddenly divorce. I can't imagine any teen take it well at that age. Then in the high school reunion she tries to point out to Henry that all Shawn's toy cars were cop cars. Why wasn't she doing anything while her husband was clearly trying to make his son grow up to be a police officer? Why didn't she ever try to stop him? Try to do something about it? You'd think that would be reason for a divorce. But no she apparently just stands by and does nothing until he's a senior and then leaves. It just doesn't make any sense. It would have make more sense if Shawn's mother was dead or she bailed on both when Shawn was young.

I remember years ago reading a heated debate somewhere of whose relationship was better: JD and Turk from Scrubs or Shawn and Gus from Psych. Both sides were vehemently defending their position with gifs and breakdowns of dialogue.  I was flabbergasted because I had never seen Psych. But now I've seen the light.

You know its funny how no one at the high school reunion seem to know much about Gus and Shawn. I mean sure Gus lists a few things to the woman he was talking to and she remembered seeing them on American Duos. But no one remembers them from discovering a dinosaur? Part of the defense team for Sandra Panitch Shawn even talked to the camera. None of the nerds or former nerds remember them from Tri-Con? The Spanish soap opera? Black and Tan? From the Spelling Bee? I mean I don't expect everyone to remember all of those. But you'd think some would have. I do love what Shawn says about Gus at the end. It was really nice.

That’s assuming everyone remained in Santa Barbara; read the same paper, etc.

The Telenovella isn’t something EVERYONE would watch; same as American Duos

It didn't bother me that some or most didn’t.

Excited for the new movie! 

I’ve been enjoying James Roday in A Million Little Things. Still has his great snark and comic timing but gets to stretch his dramatic skills too. 

And I saw Kirsten Nelson on This Is Us this week. Just a bit part as a nurse but it was nice to see her.

Does anyone follow Dule on Instagram? He posts pictures of some of the people who have been coming out to see him in his play and Curt Smith (Tears for Fears) was in one. So fun!

How could Curt Smith come out to see his play, he was killed by Clizby?

Rewatching it again, and I forgot how awesome the Yin/Yang Trilogy was.

It really was. No matter how many times I rewatch Yin/Yang I think the same thing. I love the clues, the hunt, Mary, and I am still surprised that they ended the first episode with Yang getting captured. So many shows would have had her getaway somehow to have her come and go a few more times before getting captured and then revealing Yin. I love the Hitchcock clues! Gus and Shawn wearing racquet ball clothes to Mary's funeral. Shawn making jokes in the first episode like its no big deal but when Gus calls him on it he explains he has to so he can do his job. Gus then making jokes the rest of the episode to help him out. Mary putting the mouse in his pocket and seeing the mouse turn up in the next Yin/Yang episode as his pet. Ally Sheedy did a great job playing crazy Yang.

Possibly the best thing about it was that everybody got a chance to be badass, and had a part in bringing down Yin, Yang, and Allison.  Nobody got shafted, Shawn was the main character, but the writers made sure that everybody got that moment to shine, and they're all a reason the killers were brought to justice.  We all know what Shawn did, but Gus solved the train puzzle in the 1st episode, he realized that Yin was using movies, he jumped into the hole to save Jules in part 2, he and Lassie saved Jules later, and he had the great "I don't blame you" speech in part 3.  Lassie and Jules solved the puzzle after Shawn left in part 1, he immediately called Shawn when he found the waitress's car, he didn't hesitate to go save Jules, he and Gus save Jules, and he comforts Jules after it.  Jules helped Lassie solve the puzzle in part 1, told Gus to stay put when they were in the bar before falling into the trap, and kicked the crap out of Allison.  Mary knew there was a Yin, knew the mouse was the important thing in part 1, he knew Yang didn't kill anybody, and he finally gets to play racquetball.  Henry helped save Abigail, McNab even solved the first riddle in part 2, and Vick did what she does which is take charge.  Every character we knew and loved, played a part in taking down those 3.

Seriously. There are movie trilogies far less satisfying. And I absolutely love the relationships we see there. Like how Shawn  can only save Abigail if he knows Gus is saving Jules, Lassie hugging Jules, Shawn and Henry hugging, Gus and Shawn arguing over who gets to die first and doesn’t have to watch the other go, “I would protect you” “And I would protect you right back.” Even Yang rescuing Shawn is weirdly heartwarming, along with the reveal that she never actually killed anyone.

I love how Yang kills her father and he says I never loved you. Instead of crying or getting upset, she just says I know. Shawn seeing Yin when he arrives to rescue Abigail but has to let him go to save Abigail. Right before Lassie hugs Jules who breaks down she's talking to another officer getting angry and Lassie simple walks up behind him grabs him by his clothes and moves him out of the way. Jules trying not to break down but does. I even like that Jules wasn't back to work in the opener of season 5 but working in City Hall. She was stalling but also understandable after what happened to her.  Gus and Lassie working together to save Jules. Lassie going to get Jules and when Vick tries to stop him pointing out a civilian has been kidnapped and she has to be given priority Lassie also pointing out that she did have other units and he was going to go get his partner. There's so many great lines and moments over the trilogy.

Who does the Chief send up the stairs to save Jules?  Just Lassie and Gus, she knows the only way they'd fail is if they were killed.  Every other officer will monitor the perimeter, because she's got complete faith in Lassie and Gus.  Lassie doesn't object for even a second to Gus being sent with him, he doesn't have a problem when Gus tells him what to do.  Lassie knew that the only way Gus was letting go of that hand, would be if it chopped off his fingers.  Lassie had snapped at Gus earlier, because he thought Gus was going to crack jokes again, but he also knows that Gus does love Jules as a sister, and won't let her die.  Great way to show how far the character of Lassie had come since the beginning of the series, without putting a big neon sign over it.  They didn't tell you over the course of the series, they instead showed you that Lassie had grown to deeply care for Gus and Shawn.

I have no idea how to link to this, as it showed up as a weird pop up thing on my computer, but apparently Assiello does a series where he interviews actors on the subway.  He did an interview with James Roday in which the new Psych movie was discussed.  There are, truly Psych-like, no spoilers for the movie, but I can't tell you what happens in the interview, because it would spoil THAT.

I found it.

Everytime I hear about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby I think about Psych: It’s Quarter Black. Which reminds me of Joon’s “Not even if Jesus were our manager” line, the discussion that followed, and then their agreement that the group *would* get back together if Jesus were their manager. One of my favorite episodes.

I love that episode too. They were so funny. After Gus agrees Shawn starts singing "If Jesus was our manager."
