2008 Winter TV Preview: Psych
Psych - Season 2 (part 2)
Premieres: Friday, January 11th at 10:00 p.m. EST
Creator(s): Steve Franks
Starring:: James Roday, Dulť Hill, Corbin Bernsen, Kirsten Nelson, Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson
In Psych, James Roday plays Shawn Spencer, a police consultant for the Santa Barbara Police Department. Despite having no police experience himself, growing up with a Detective father (Corbin Bernsen) who constantly drilled him and honed his observational skills sharpened his abilities to the point that people think heís psychic. Dule Hill plays Gus, Shawnís best friend and business partner. Gus is one of the few people who knows that Shawnís psychic abilities are an act and while he disapproves of the subterfuge, Gus often finds himself helping Shawn with his cases.
Psychís last original episode aired in December and centered on Shawn clearing Gusí parents of murder. The second part of season 2 deals with another person in Gusí life when his wife asks for his help in a missing person case. Kerry Washington guest stars as Gusí wife.
Iíve caught several episodes of Psych due to USAís love of Sunday afternoon marathons. In typical USA original series fashion, itís obviously low budget and obviously shot in Canada, but itís still well written and well acted. Dulť Hill is playing a similar type of character to the one he played on The West Wing, but with Psychís much smaller cast, heís able to do a lot more. James Roday has a goofy, affable Zach Braff/John Krasinski way about him that makes it easy to believe that his character would be able to pull off such a ridiculous ruse. Itís definitely not must-see TV, but with very few other shows on, now is a great time to introduce yourself to series you may have overlooked in the past.
