Creator Steve Franks’ comedic entry into the crime-solving genre follows the investigative efforts of fake psychic Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his childhood pal and sidekick Burton ‘Gus’ Guster (Dele Hill). Though Shawn has top-notch observational skills and the keen instincts necessary to become a detective, he also has a free-spirited, goofy side that prevents him from pursuing a serious career in police work, much to the chagrin of his father Henry (Corbin Bernsen). A former detective, Henry honed his son’s talents at a young age and is constantly frustrated by Shawn’s carefree view of adult life. Henry’s former colleague Interim Chief Karen Vick (Kirsten Nelson, however, sees Shawn as an asset for solving tough cases, even though she's sceptical of his alleged psychic ability, a lie Shawn manufactured after he gave the police a tip that was so accurate he became a suspect.

Psych is a quirky detective show with a twist; the detective of the show is hyper-observant Shaun Spencer, who creates a fake Psychic detective firm called Psych, with his best friend Burton Guster. Psych revolves around the duo as they uncover the mysteries behind many crimes in Santa Barbara, working with the local police to solve crimes. Season 3 features many of the popular episode formats of previous episodes, with many cases leaving you to pick up the pieces and have a go yourself. The quick wit of Shaun adds to the show, and makes it a bit more light-hearted than that of other crime shows. The acting in the show is great and the dynamic between the main characters and their actors (James Roday and Dule Hill respectively) is great and gives the show a bit of extra relief from the normal murder mystery shows. Psych and its number of pop-culture references and mind-bending mysteries is awesome, making this show a fresh new take on the classic murder mystery show, which in my opinion is a brilliant change of pace.
Comedy doesn't get much better than this show. It follows the adventures and misadventures of Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his best friend Gus (Dule Hill) as they solve cased for the Santa Barbara police. The catch? Shawn has convinced them he gets the clues he uses not because of his keen powers of observation (the truth) but because he is a psychic. While the chief of police Karen Vick (Kirsten Nelson) and detective Juliette O'Hara (Maggie Lawson) appear to believe him, head detective Carlton Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) is opening disbelieving. Rounding out the cast is Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's dad Henry. Henry knows the truth but plays along reluctantly, sometimes for his own reasons. This season finds Shawn and Gus taking on some of their wackiest cases yet. They get involved in the death of a sea lion. Gus is held captive in a bank robbery gone bad. There's murder at the roller derby and among stunt men. They go on a treasure hunt. The camp they attended as a kid is being haunted by a serial killer (in a great Friday the 13th spoof). Cybil Shepherd shows up a few times as Shawn's mother, a character we've only heard about before. She adds a good dynamic to the cast as well. While each week has a fairly decent mystery, the real reason I look forward to this show is the comedy. This show is wacky. Shawn and Gus have some fast paced dialogue that always makes me laugh. And Shawn can put a reference to 80's culture into just about any conversation. The physical comedy of those two is just as fun. Yes, the other characters get chances to shine in the comedy department, but this is James Roday and Dule Hill's show, and they nail it week after week. About the only weak show here is the series closer which tries to get serious with a serial killer kidnapping someone close to Shawn in an attempt to get him to play the killer's games. This show doesn't do serious. It worked out okay, but the goofiness is what I love. That one weakness is minor compared to the fun of this season. Get this season and you'll be laughing before you know what hit you.
if you loved the first 2 then you will love this too. We certainly did
