Overview

The weekly, hour-long detective dramedy Psych made its USA network bow on July 7, 2006, right after the fifth-season opener of the thematically similar Monk. James Roday starred as Shawn Spencer, the genial "slacker" son of no-nonsense police officer Henry Spencer (Corbin Bernsen). Relentlessly trained from an early age to recognize the smallest and most minute clues at a given crime scene, Shawn developed a photographic memory, which he generally used to coast through life and avoid honest work. Hoping to gain a bit of prestige as a police consultant, Henry made the mistake of providing so much "inside" evidence that at one point he was accused of being a perpetrator. In his efforts to wriggle out of this dilemma, Shawn managed to convince the authorities that he possessed psychic powers (which he most certainly did not), and as such became a permanent "troubleshooter" for the Santa Barbera police department, answerable to interim police chief Karen Vick (Kristen Nelson) -- who, luckily, was an old friend of Shawn's father. Grudgingly partnered with our hero was hard-bitten detective Carlton Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), who harbored serious doubts about Shawn's psychic prowess, and Lassiter's co-worker Juliet O'Hara (Maggie Lawson), a gung-ho, ebullient type who believed every word that Shawn said. Also on hand was Shawn's best friend and confidante, Gus (Dulé Hill), an overcautious type who resented being continually thrust into harm's way, but who couldn't hide his fascination with various aspects of crime and crime-solving. In a clever directorial gimmick, viewers at home "saw" and "memorized" the various clues in each episode through Shawn's eyes, via freeze-frame and zoom lens. A few episodes of Psych were seen on the over-the-air NBC network beginning July 14, 2006.

Psych is one of the funniest shows out there... It constantly has me in stitches. What I love best is the on-screen chemistry between James Roday's Shawn and Dule Hill's Gus.

Psych Season One is an incredibly humorous television series about a faux psychic, Shawn Spencer, and his best friend and partner Burton Guster (commonly known as Gus). With Shawn's brilliant mind and the help from his loyal best friend, the two of them open their own psychic detective business called "Psych." Through this, they are often hired by the Santa Barbra Police Department to solve crimes. Each episode is packed with mystery and suspense, but sugar coated in some really great humor. While each episode is a thrill to watch, due to the whole mystery aspect, the main focus of the show is to make you laugh. Throughout the first season, you will notice that Shawn hardly ever takes anything seriously. He is always making fun of things, goofing around, and cracking jokes. He is truly the epitome of the grown up class clown, and he will take it as far as people allow him to. Throughout the first season, we really get to know Shawn's character, and they do a good job of establishing necessary personality traits about both Shawn and Gus. Just from season one, you will feel like you truly know who Shawn Spencer is, and he will be the character you grow to love. But Shawn is not the only character you will like; From Shawn's tough but loveable father, to the cranky and serious detective, Lassiter, you will love them all. Each character is wildly hilarious in their own way, which is what makes the show so incredible. I really like that it incorporates many different types of people and personalities, because things never get boring. You will see that there are characters that are serious, dorky, sweet, clueless, and everything in between. I love watching them all interact with each other, and they all play a role in making the show so amazing. Although humor does play a prevalent role, I also like that this show is not just a constant feed of one liners and goofiness. I love that there is actually a different purpose and plot, and that there is always a mystery being solved. The intensity and mystery adds a nice balance because it mixes well with the humor that is seen throughout each episode. Psych combines two of the best television genres together, and creates quite possibly the most entertaining television show on the face of the planet. And while it is still a show full of mystery and crime, do not let it scare you from watching it with the whole family. Psych is appropriate for most ages because the main focus is humor, not violence. It has good intentions and is supposed to be really harmless and funny. So while it may be slightly inappropriate for very young children, it is really a show that you can watch with almost anyone. With four disks, 15 episodes, bonus interviews and a blooper reel, you are all bound to enjoy it. So if you like to laugh and are ready to be entertained, go ahead and buy Season One of Psych. Pop in the DVD, make some popcorn, sit back, relax and enjoy the show. I'm betting that you'll fall in love with it just as much as I did.

Psych is hilarious, it will invite hilarium into your life. It's like a cartoon with people, people that aren't drawn. I highly recommend this show to anyone who likes intelligent humor, but isn't averse to laughing at sight gags as well. My credibility consists of liking The Simpsons (the first 10 seasons mainly), Seinfeld and The Office. If you like those shows I think you'll like Psych.

Psych's first season mixes comedy and drama well. It starts out great, very organized, so in can set sail into a perfect season of entertainment.

Psych has got to be some of the BEST TV that there is, I laugh out loud with every episode, most times having to pause it so that I don't miss anything. Highly recommended!

I love this series. As a comedy, it has surprisingly well-developed characters and a great cast. There is great chemistry between Shawn (the fake psychic) and his partner Gus, as well as every other character on the show. The comedy can often be unexpected, making it a smart and witty comedy. The drama side of this show is also amazing. It can be fast-paced and suspenseful, as well as hilarious. It's well structured, and worth watching over and over. I highly recommend the series.

I have been a fan of USA's Monk, for many years now. As the spark of the show wore off, I decided to give "Psych" a try. I still watch Monk, but Psych is definately one of the best shows on television. People do now see how this show can be good, being on a different station than other big shows, but it tops every other show on TV. This show is funny, suspensful, and has great plots. It is my new favorite show, and needs a try by everyone hearing about it.

This series revolves around a slacker savante who pretends to be a psychic for the Santa Barbara Police Department. Shawn Spencer manages to upstage the other detectives to solve crimes while dragging along his childhood friend, still bickering with his dad, and wooing another female detective. In each hour-long episode you'll be entertained, intrigued, engaged, and tested on your 80's trivia!

You have a fake looks into the future kinda guy with his pal that starts off after catching a suspect thus having to go on with the charade till i guess he gets caught. Entertaining though next to Monk. A show that has comedy mixes with drama. One of my favorites shows.

psych, steve franks is a genius. these characters are entertaining and loveable to the end. the relationships between all the characters is what keep the show going. the relationship that shawn and gus have is just the greatest, shawn keeps you laughing and gus is there to add humor along. lassiter and jules, very simple yet funny with him being very proper and her laid back. the mysteries are great as well.
