PSYCH returns for more psych-out adventures (2010)

If you have not yet discovered this fun summer show of a fake psychic detective who solves real crimes for the Santa Barbara Police Department, then make the time to take a peek when it returns for its fifth season. Starring James Roday and Dule Hill as the comedic duo of Shawn Spencer and Burton Guster, the show is a hilarious look out how a normal guy pretending to be a psychic can still be the smartest guy around.

While Chief Vick and Detectives Carlton Lassiter and Juliet O’Hara are not quite sure if Shawn is the real deal or not, he and Gus do crack some of the toughest, mind-boggling crimes. So with the aid of Shawn’s dad, Henry, an ex-cop who reluctantly goes along with Shawn’s elaborate ruse, the show comedically portrays how simple observation and a nose for trouble makes Shawn and Gus a brilliant crime-fighting duo.

The end of last season was a tense showdown with Shawn’s nemesis the mysterious Mr. Yin, the partner in crime to Mr. Yang — the same Mr. Yang who Shawn captured at the end of the third season. It was a game designed to end with the death of either Shawn’s girlfriend Abigail or Detective O’Hara, but with everyone working together to solve the deadly riddles, all were saved in the end. But while all ended well, Shawn still lost in the end as Abigail decided she was not fit to be a part of Shawn’s world anymore. It was a bittersweet end and it remains to be seen if Shawn will feel compelled to continue the game of cat-and-mouse with the nefarious Mr. Yin.

Regardless of the pursuit of Mr. Yin, more ludicrous and entertaining adventures surely await as Shawn and Gus continue their dual goal of making a quick buck while still endeavoring to keep the Santa Barbara streets safe from the criminal element. After all, crime should not pay — unless you are a fake psychic detective who cannot resist an Easter egg hunt, treasure hunt or even a duck hunt. For Shawn and Gus, life is but a game and we are all players in it — and any game should be fun along the way.

Join Shawn and Gus as they engage in their next round of “Psych” which returns on Wednesday, July 14th at 10:00 p.m. on USA Network.
