Great mix of fun and mystery

by Matt on 9/25/2007

This show has been the best TV find for my wife and me (and all of the family and co-workers we could convince to watch it). It is a show with enough plot twists to keep you on your toes, but is mostly character-driven. The pop-culture references are superb for the 20 to 40-something audience. The acting is fun and loose, the characters feel like real people you would want to meet, and the show never takes itself too seriously.

so much fun

on 12/29/2007

When I saw the pilot episode of Psych, I was a bit disappointed and didn't like it a whole lot. However, later episodes were much better, and the lead characters Shawn and Gus have great chemistry, with Gus usually the straight man to Shawn's craziness. Though they solve the mysteries, they are not 100% serious. Some of the episodes have the hilarious bonus of audio commentary provided by the two lead actors James Roday and Dule Hill. Great fun!

Product Overview

Fake psychic Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his skeptical best friend Gus (Dule Hill) are on the case in the fresh and quirky runaway hit Psych! Relive every quick-witted remark and hilarious misadventure in all 15 Season One episodes, including both the domestic and international versions of the series pilot! Thanks to a childhood spent with a family of cops, Shawn possesses an incredible photographic memory and notices seemingly insignificant details. These traits allow him to spend his jobless days providing the police with mystery-solving tips - but his knowledge soon makes him a suspect. In order to clear his name, the unlikely sleuth declares that he has clairvoyant abilities and launches his own investigative agency, Psych. Exclusive bonus features in this must-own 4-disc set include a behind-the-scenes featurette, insightful character profiles and deleted scenes. Return to the scene of the crime with Psych, the phenomenon that the New York Post awards 4 stars and declares "just terrific."

Editors Note
Note The crimes aren't what make this mystery-driven series so much fun. Instead, it's the chemistry between leads James Roday (DUKES OF HAZZARD) and Dulé Hill (THE WEST WING) that has PSYCH following in the footsteps of series such as MONK and MAGNUM, P.I. With a family of cops, Shawn Spencer (Roday) has honed his observational skills to an impressive degree. But rather than join the police force and make his father (Corbin Bernsen, L.A. LAW) proud, Shawn bounces from job to job, working as everything from a foot model to a Wienermobile driver. But he can't keep his powers of deduction hidden, and he calls the police with tips for their cases. When his knowledge arouses suspicion, Shawn does the logical thing: tells everyone he's a psychic and opens a psychic detective agency. Aided by his best friend and polar opposite, Gus (Hill), Shawn solves cases with the Santa Barbara Police Department. The detective duo matches wits with the doubtful police, hardened criminals, and one another with hilarious results. This release includes every episode of this quirky dramedy's first season.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review The perfect chaser to the well-established Monk, the show takes the buddy concept, mixes in equal parts smart writing and authentic character acting, and serves it up in an impressive glass of detective work...The trick to a successful run is going to be the writing. Balancing on the head of a pin, always this close to being unmasked, Shawn and Gus are not charlatans or con men. They're merely keeping up their unfortunate ruse to stay out of trouble and solve real crimes utilizing their true talents and experiences. Franks and his team will have to be vigilant in providing audiences with cases they haven't seen before and avoid repeating themselves with similar plotlines. If the pilot is any indication, it shouldn't be a problem...On the downside, there will be inevitable comparisons to Monk and they're justified. Both shows do have similar looks, feels, and ensemble tones, but there are enough differences to make the series pairing an exceptional block of programming.

Brian Lowry, Variety Roday has a nifty, rapid-fire delivery, Hill provides pleasant company... ...entertaining, funny, smart, and just downright well written. liners, absurd situations, and fully body slap stick. There's never a dull moment while watching this show.
Michael Stailey, DVD Verdict ...mixes in equal parts smart writing and authentic character acting, and serves it up in an impressive glass of detective work.
Sarah Keech, ...hilarious...original and enjoyably wacky. There are certainly many laugh-aloud moments...
Linda Stasi, New York Post It's not only laugh-out-loud-until-soda-squirts-out-of-your-nose funny, but it's also perfectly cast.
Maureen Ryan, Chicago Tribune If you like Monk, you'll probably love this show, which may actually be even more enjoyable.
Melanie McFarland, Seattle Post-Intelligencer Psych is one of those happy collisions of an intelligent script and an appealing cast.
Ray Richmond, Hollywood Reporter It takes itself seriously pretty much not at all, which is precisely what we want at 10 p.m. on a summer Friday.
