Psych

 (772)
8.32009X-Ray13+
A quick-witted drama, PSYCH follow the adventures of young police consultant, Shawn Spencer, who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he's psychic - at least that's what he lets them believe. Spencer is joined by his best friend and reluctant sidekick, Gus, and his disapproving father, who ironically was the one who honed his son's "observation" skills as a child. In the premiere episode we meet Shawn's mother, Madeleine, played by Golden Globe winner and Emmy-nominated TV legend Cybill Shepherd. Madeleine, a criminal psychologist, returns to Santa Barbara to help the SBPD with a case much to the surprise of her son and ex-husband, Henry. We also see the Spencer family focus with the dysfunction of Madeleine and Henry's divorce as Shawn deals with the two of them back in his life. The PSYCH agency is on the case of a ghost in the home of Gus' boss.

I have rewatched this show 10 times and it never gets boring. The amount of jokes per is so dense I still keep finding ones I did not notice before.
I love this show.

"Gus, don't be a ..."
Verified purchase
If you're sick of grim, self-consciously bleak crime shows, Psych is the perfect antidote! It's an unashamedly comedic mystery with just enough splashes of reality to keep it grounded.

Shawn and Gus are best friends who genuinely adore each other underneath the constant teasing and banter, and their friendship----along with Shawn's complex but increasingly stable relationship with his dad---give the show its subtle but strong heart. You have to be in the mood to laugh at the show's gleefully goofy silliness, but there's also some surprisingly smart, sharp wit here as well.

Season 2 is my favorite of the whole series (and one of my favorite seasons of any TV show ever!), but this third season is a close runner up. Highlights include The Greatest Adventure in the History of Basic Cable, a 'treasure hunt' episode which features Shawn's amusingly unreliable Uncle Jack; There Might Be Blood, where we get a little much-needed focus on the chief by meeting her sister, fabulously played by Jane Lynch; Lassie Did a Bad, Bad Thing (I'm a sucker for whenever Shawn and Lassie put aside their usual animosity to help each other out!); Any Given Friday Night at 10pm/ 9pm Central (if you like football---or maybe even more if you don't---you'll enjoy this one!); and Tuesday the 17th, which, as others have pointed out, is a terrific takeoff of Friday the 13th---funny, clever, engaging, action packed and at points even genuinely, effectively creepy. That last one alone is worth the currently very reasonable price of this DVD!

You can watch this infectiously energetic, highly amusing show over and over without tiring of it, and it's almost guaranteed to boost your mood. Plus, some of the mysteries are generally engaging, which is more than I can say for many of today's self-serious crime dramas! Enjoy!

Good Show

I liked this season. While Sean's antics can become annoying, the show still has a lot of humor and the rest of the cast saves it. Not deep or thought provoking like some other shows, but good entertainment.

One of the best seasons of one of the best TV dramedies in years.
Verified purchase
Another season of the well-written, perfectly cast comedic murder mystery farce that is Psych.

The packaging is decent, nothing special but very sturdy.

The episodes and video/audio quality are great.

My one real issue is the quality of special features. This DVD only has a few cast/crew audio commentaries for the episodes, along with some poor quality audio podcast commentaries. Some episodes have none. While this certainly isn't a requirement, one of the reasons to buy a boxed set instead of buying or streaming digitally is the extra content. This one isn't the best in that regard.

The show itself is great(5*), and what special features are included are quite entertaining on their own. Just don't expect a lot of extra stuff accompanying those great episodes.

Love, love LOVE Psych

Love, love LOVE Psych.. am SO sad the show was discontinued.. James Roday and Dulé Hill have better chemistry than any other set of actors I have ever seen. I would never believe it if someone told me they weren't friends from childhood in real life. :) Anyway, about the actual DVD set, it is very nice packaging and very inexpensive. The only complaint? The seasons were too short.. They should have had at least 30 episodes per season.. ;) I love this show..

Hilarious Family Fun
Verified purchase
Psych is one of the only shows my whole family can enjoy (we range in age from 12 to 52). The show's language is clean (for the most part. I think the worst word they use is "DAMMIT") and the situations, while occasionally intense, are presented as realistically as possible.

The witty writing, great acting (and great chemistry between the actors; you can't fake that!), wide range of genres covered, and case-of-the-week format mean you can jump in at any time and laugh yourself silly. At the same time, the season's main story arc (Shawn and Gus growing both as business partners & friends and bookend episodes with Shawn's high school sweetheart Abigail) tie everything together nicely.

This DVD set has some amazing special features as well. The commentaries are definitely worth listening to, and don't miss the Psych-outs or gag reel either!

This is Psych, what more is there to say? The series is not available on Netflix or Hulu, so you have to buy it. If you are going to buy it, it is least expensive here. My favorites are Seasons 1-4, and 6, but they are all great fun!
