Tonight is Episode 2 of Season 6, “Last Night Gus”. This week, Shawn, Gus, Lassiter, Henry, and Woody get their Hangover on, as a dead body appears, and nobody can remember what happened. This is a bit of a tired premise, but the writers have shown that they can make just about anything smart and funny, so I figure it will come off just fine. Join us in the comment section for the usual banter.
Here’s a clip from tonight’s episode.
It’s Friday (Friday, gotta get down on Friday) which means ION will make their only good contribution to society, and play Psych episodes for most of the night. Sadly, there’s a 3-hour block of Monk in the middle of this, but where else would you go to find out if Monk is still “smoking the truth, man”?
The schedule is as follows (central time):
5pm – “The Old and the Restless” – Henry poses as Shawn’s grandfather and is semi-forced to stay at a retirement home that he ends up actually enjoying. Booger guest stars because he has nothing better to do nowadays.
6pm – “Lights, Camera…Homicidio” – Shawn is a Spanish soap star, and is almost killed by a nail gun. That’s near the bottom of my list of how I want to die.
7pm – “Dis-Lodged” – Lassie’s soon-to-be-ex-father-in-law, played by Philip Baker Hall (who by the way is hilarious in 50/50) is the prime suspect of a murder at a secret club called the Monarch Lodge. I honestly don’t remember much about this episode.
8pm – “Black and Tan: A Crime of Fashion” – Shawn and Gus are male models. This is one of my least favorite episodes overall.
12am – “Shawn (and Gus) of the Dead” – A mummy escapes the Natural History Museum. (Interim) Chief Vick thinks she might be on the way out.
1am – “Ghosts” – Shooter McGavin guest stars, Shawn’s mom enters the picture.
Yes, Shawn and Juliet are still dating. Luckily the show didn’t pull a “Ghostbusters II” and have the main love interests break up off camera. Nothing has changed in Santa Barbara, except now Lassiter (and Chief Vick, Henry…probably Buzz, too) knows all about Shawn and Juliet.
When I first watched the episode, I was put off by Lassiter’s attitude. When he first questions Juliet about her relationship with Spencer – by lying to her about a polygraph machine being faulty – he’s abrupt, prickish and overbearing. Of course he’s normally all those things, but this time he was just an unlikeable ass.
Psych returns for it’s 6th season tonight with the premiere episode “Shawn Rescues Darth Vader”. The episode guest stars Malcolm McDowell as a British Ambassador, whose aide meets an untimely demise. Also, the series picks up a loose thread from last season, as Lassiter is determined to get to the bottom of the Shawn-Juliet relationship. One of us will have a recap up tomorrow, but for now, feel free to join us in the comments for some witty banter and 80s references.
While you wait, you can watch a short clip of tonight’s episode, featuring Shawn getting in touch with his inner kid:
Hello and welcome to Pineapple Yin Yang, a blog of sorts about the TV show psych. I along with younglefty, shatner, chief and hopefully many others will be writing about Psych here, but mostly I imagine this will be a place to BS about the show so we don’t clog everyone’s twitter timelines.
If you like the show, dive in and enjoy. With that, let’s enjoy tonight’s episodes. On ION we have “Meat is Murder, but Murder is Also Murder” and on USA, “Think Tank”
