    While on a mission to retrieve a stolen Darth Vader collector's item from the British Ambassador's son at the British Consulate Residence in Santa Barbara, Shawn finds a dead body left in one of the rooms. In order to get the SBPD on the case to find her killer, Shawn tells Lassiter and Juliet that the image of a dead body came to him in a psychic vision. However, Shawn's credibility as a "psychic" could be placed in jeopardy if the SBPD finds out he actually witnessed the dead body in person and didn't "divine" the image of her murder. Guest Stars: Malcolm McDowell, Polly Walker.

    Shawn, Gus, Lassiter, and Woody the coroner wake up in the Psych Office having no recollection of what happened the night before. When a body shows up dead, all leads initially point to our guys as being the culprits, but since they have no idea why they have no memory of this, they conclude that someone must have drugged them. From there, they conduct an investigation using clues and blurred Shawn Vision Flashbacks in order to exonerate themselves as well as find the real killer.

If you've seen any episodes of Psych, you know this is a beautiful tale of an enduring bromance.

If you haven't seen any episodes of Psych, buy them all now and feel the stresses of lockdown melt (mostly) away as you enter a world of pop culture appreciation, brotherly love, brilliant detective work, and the softening of one tightly-wound Head Detective's heart.

Received BROKEN - but.......I would give 10 STARS (Please continue reading).

We received our CD package and it was BROKEN and of the 4 CD's, 2 were visibly scratched. So I went online, located this order and filed my complaint - within 15 MINUTES, I received an Email stating they have "reordered" it an not cost. We just need to go to our Amazon Account and "return" the broken merchandise. In the return link - we just had to click "UPS will pick it up from our House" and guess what, UPS knocked on our door 2 days later and retrieved the broken CD Package.

Our NEW CD package was received 3 days after I had filed my complaint on Amazon.com thru my account. PLEASE NOTE: Amazon by far is the standard of efficient and excellent CUSTOMER SERVICE. No where else can you do this without having to call someone or go through hoops to explain something is broken. Wow - I am beyond satisfied - I can do an Amazon Commercial for free just to tell everyone HOW AWESOME THE customer experience is. Just so we are all on the same page, my definition of awesome is as follows:

1) I order something online,
2) I receive it in good order at my House,
3) If not in good order, I go back to my Account online and look for a way to provide feedback that directly tied to the "not in good order" product. AND IT'S THERE ON AMAZON.COM in "Your Orders".
4) I am able to TYPE a summary of my problem and I expect it to be taken cared of (meaning, I do not want to be on the phone to tell someone or ask someone) - simply since I ordered it without speaking to someone. AND IT'S THERE ON AMAZON.COM.
5) That I also have an option to "click" somebody come get this from my House since it is NOT my fault it was broken as it arrived broken. AND YES, AMAZON.COM has that TOO.....seriously (I was beyond shocked but very very HAPPY with Amazon and the options - WOW is all I can say).

In summary, while other online retailers can do maybe a few good things - NONE offer what I just typed above. Thank you Amazon.com - you are the GOLDEN STANDARD for which all companies both Online and Physical should be based or modeled after.

"I, too, am a man of science. See, I'm a psychic."

I'm a recent convert to PSYCH, and so I've got serious catching up to do. It's Season 6 of the USA Network's currently longest running show. Despite Shawn Spencer's amazing psychic sleuthing act, Santa Barbara, California is still very much crime-infested. And that suits us fine. I'd initially dismissed PSYCH as a series that's too goofy and over-the-top. But I went thru Season 5 and realized that PSYCH does have dramatic flair, that occasional sense of gravity. I'm a sucker for romance so my way in was the game-changing growth in Shawn and Juliet's relationship. Season 6 continues to advance that relationship. I really liked the polygraph test sequence in the opening episode ("Shawn Rescues Darth Vader"). In that sequence, Lassiter has got Shawn strapped to a lie detector and thinks him cornered. Instead we get a wonderful moment with Shawn and an onlooking Juliet.

PSYCH's calling card is its self-aware shamelessness and its wit and its relentless pop culture referencing. Given, I roll my eyes at Shawn's trademark raising of hand to temple as he demonstrates his "psychic" skills. Thankfully, his and Gus's goofing around frequently generates big laughs. (For a few weeks, I was going around, saying "C'mon, son" to everyone.) And just when you think they've wandered too far into silly territory again, here comes the shocking season finale. PSYCH ending on a dark note? You know that's right.

My favorite Season 6 episodes:

- "Shawn Rescues Darth Vader" - Mostly for Shawn's polygraph test sequence but also for Shawn's casual abuse of his temporary diplomatic immunity.

- "Last Night Gus" - PSYCH's nod to THE HANGOVER; After attending a cop's retirement party, Shawn, Gus, Lassie, and SBPD's weirdo coroner Woody Strode wake up with no recollection of what happened the night before.

- "The Amazing Psych-Man & Tap Man, Issue #2" - PSYCH's nod to superheroes; A costumed vigilante called The Mantis is nabbing crooks and making SBPD and Shawn look superfluous. Gus as "Tap Man" is freakin' hilarious.

- "In for a Penny..." - Awesome, awesome Juliet O'Hara-centric episode. William Shatner plays Juliet's estranged con artist dad who's trying to ingratiate himself back into her life. Fantastic emotional beats delivered by Shatner and Maggie Lawson.

- "Neil Simon's Lover's Retreat" - Another great ep. Shawn and Juliet go on a romantic getaway, so naturally a corpse pops up. Keep an eye out for the nightclub sequence as Gus, Lassie, and Henry compete in a bet.

- "Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger" - PSYCH'S nod to Indiana Jones, but also featuring the return of dashing master thief Pierre Despereaux (Cary Elwes). Also guest-stars John Rhys-Davies ("Sallah" from the Indiana Jones films).

- "Heeeeere's Lassie" - Focus on Det. Carlton Lassiter who hires Shawn and Gus to investigate a possible haunting in his new condo. This episode spoofs THE SHINING, POLTERGEIST, ROSEMARY'S BABY, and even GHOSTBUSTERS. Guest-starring William Shatner who shows up for a few minutes.

- "Santabarbaratown" - PSYCH's nod to film noir like CHINATOWN and L.A. CONFIDENTIAL.

PSYCH - THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON has its 16 episodes on 4 discs. The bonus stuff:

- Cast & Crew Audio Commentaries on 8 episodes: "Shawn Rescues Darth Vader," "Last Night Gus," "This Episode Sucks," "In for a Penny...," "Neil Simon's Lover's Retreat," "Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger," "Heeeeere's Lassie," and "Santabarbaratown"
- Writers' Video Commentaries on all 16 episodes
- Deleted/Extended Scenes for 11 episodes
- Gag Reel (00:04:11 minutes)
- 4 montage clips of Shawn and Gus's shenanigans focusing on their favorite phrases, names Shawn comes up with to introduce Gus to strangers, Gus's food obsession, jokes that didn't make the final cut, and pop culture references (totaling 00:05:20 minutes)
- "Underground with PSYCH" - look at the set of the hidden underground treasure room from "Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger" with production designer Eric Norlin and art director Jennifer Donaldson (00:04:04 minutes)
- "Psychouts - California Survivor Man Audition Applicant #633" - Dule Hill, James Roday, and Maggie Lawson goof around in a 40-second promotional skit

It's Psych, Shawn and Guster, another pineapple-spiked treat! What's not to like?

Not enough? Okay, then throw in some skeezy William Shatner, a tap-dancing/baseball-catching superhero duo, and some Indiana Jonesin' with Despereaux. Still nothing? Fine, we'll include hijinks when Gus joins a cult, Lassie gets a girlfriend, and Shawn checks into the looney bin.

Still not convinced? Then add some mystery white powder, an explosion-propelled leap into a swimming pool, a murdered donut, a crushed Blueberry, and you've got yourself another sweet season of Psych.

My husband and I have binged this whole series together several times. When I bought this for him as an anniversary gift, I hid each individual box set somewhere in the house with a pineapple all over the house and the yard. I told him to “go find the pineapples!” He LOVED it! That was several years ago, and it’s still in the Blu-ray player. We were watching it last night. Haha! Highly recommended!!

DUDE! Over the history of television, few shows have been able to keep up the momentum season after season, but Psych is consistant in delivering the goods. I have no doubt season 7 will provide the same quality, and same humor and best guest stars out there. This season the 2nd episode, "Late Night Gus" was perfection, I was shrieking and laughing thru the whole show!! Shawn, Gus, Lassie & Woody re-living the night before to reconstruct a crime was fab, but the scene of them walking (swaggering actually) side by side was absolute perfection! And poor Gus & his perfect apartment... fortunately he probbably has nitro glycerine on hand.
Little on tv these days provides the entertainment level Psych brings. If you are a fan, I can add little more to your enthusiasm, if you have never seen this show, start any season and sit back have a rocking good time and be prepared-you will be hooked forever. I hope these guys never grow up. And I hope Henry used his gear,this show never disappoints & Henry is a cop thru & thru so I am execting a stunning first pisode.

Good season
Verified purchase
I had some concerns about what the writers would do with the Shawn/Juliet pairing, but for the most part it doesn't appear. When it does, it actually makes sense.

The writers do have a stroke of brilliance with Lassie's girlfriend. Really well done, and feel good for Lassie.

The catch phrases for this year seem off to me.

Another reviewer referred to Late Night Gus being the best episode of Psych - it really is up there in the list of best episodes. However, the 2nd appearance of Blackapella isn't as strong as the first. Really missed Joon.

Quite pleased that the finale did not have anything to do with Yin or Yang or his new blonde apprentice. We do get a cliffhanger. Wojo, Wojo, Wojo. As soon as I saw an old Barney Miller cop, I knew what was going to happen.

If you like Psych, easy recommendation.

Most clever comedy on television at the moment: underrated and subtly genius
Verified purchase
This show has continuously been snubbed over the years for award shows such as the Emmy's and Golden Globes. Although I don't give much weight to award shows, it's still a shame. This is definitely one of the funniest and most original comedies on television, and completely underrated.

I think the the whole "fake psychic" concept and the goofiness of Shawn turns some people off. It's a little silly (purposely), but typically takes a few episodes to get into and realize that the silliness is purposeful and well done. Give it a chance. Also - the show has gotten BETTER over the years, and it's almost in its 7th season. How many shows can you say about that? It's at its peak.

What is better? Compare one of the first few episodes to a current one. The writing is better, the jokes are more humorous, and the characters better developed and fleshed out. Detective Juliet O'Hara and Shawn Spencer are also in a relationship now, and while I don't believe it will last forever due to "breaking the formula" of the show (think Monk), but it's subtle enough where it's not butting into the storyline. While I love the characters of Juliet and Shawn and really like the pairing, I don't want too much romance or mush around it. And I honestly prefer Shawn/Gus interactions or Shawn/Henry interactions compared to him and Juliet.

Also, Woody the Coroner (Kurt Fuller) also has a bit more screen-time this season, and he's a really enjoyable character that adds to the cast. I definitely would like to see more of him. The characters storylines intertwine more and the pop culture references and parody episodes have risen over time, which I truly love. There's nothing funnier than seeing Psych mess around with it's opening theme song.

Never seen the show before? It's fairly easy to get into without seeing previous episodes, although it's recommended so you can empathize with them better. There is a slight amount of background history, but not too much (although some shows will have subtle references to early episodes) to make it impossible to watch without seeing most of them beforehand. The major changes in the story this far are Juliet O'Hara and Shawn Spencer starting a relationship, and Henry Spencer (Corbin Bernsen) coming out of retirement to join the SBPD. A little different, but not super plot-altering.

What I love about this show is the "little things" you can count on to happen.

*Most episodes have a pineapple in it, a Psych thing they've been doing ever since the season 1 premiere (find the pineapple!)
*80s references are just dropped everywhere. If you were a teen in the 80s you will really connect to this type of humor.
*Gus is super emotional and cries whenever someone else does, no matter who it is. lol.
*Shawn always introduces Gus by a hilarious name.
*Shawn and Gus love to eat food, and are notorious for finding food on the job and at inappropriate times.

The writers deserve way more acclaim than they've been given. You can tell the amount of effort they put into every episode, which you definitely can't say about all of the generic garbage network sitcoms that get MUCH more attention. Accept it's goofiness and you'll see the genius, hilariousness, and cleverness behind it. Most of it is a PARODY of things, and a very clever one at that. If you are super unfamiliar with the 80s you may find it less enjoyable due to not understanding the references (although they have 90s and current references as well), but I was born in the late 80s (don't get a lot of the jokes) and still love it to death.

Oh, and you can always count on Psych to give you awesome guest stars that were popular in the 80s. Some guest stars this season are Joey McIntyre, Kenan Thompson, Jaleel White, Corey Feldmen, Danny Glover, Molly Ringwald, Mekhi Phifer, and MANY others.

As usual, the acting is great. James Roday and Dule Hill as Shawn and Gus may be one of the best "bromances" I've seen on in a show in....forever? At least comically. They are hilarious together. Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's father is great as usual. Juliet and Shawn are one of the cutest couples on television, and I love how Juliet is a strong woman who doesn't use her looks and sexuality to get what she wants. She's a great female role model type and I like her character's modesty. Timothy Omundson is hilarious as the uptight, All-American cop, Lassiter, and has become more likable over the seasons.

Psych first aired around the time that Monk almost ended, and it was a great move on USA Networks's part. It is the perfect example of a "feel good murder mystery show," where it's revolved around dead bodies and murder, but it somehow light-hearted and hilarious, never leaving you in a poor mood. If you enjoyed Monk, you'll probably enjoy this if you give it a chance.

Great show and I hope it continues for seasons to come. It's getting better and better!
