The Binge Watcher Review: "Psych"

Starring: James Roday, Dule Hill, Timothy Omundson, Corbin Bernsen, Maggie Lawson

A novice sleuth is hired by the police after he cons them into thinking he has psychic powers which help solve crimes. With the assistance of his reluctant best friend, the duo takes on a series of complicated cases

The Good:
A great show, great script which ties in pop culture humor. But the real stars of the show have to be James Roday, Dule Hill and Timothy Omundson. Each play their role perfectly.

The Bad:
Unfortunately like most great comedy shows the last two seasons seemed to have lost a little something. Not at all saying that it was bad, but it never met the standards of the first few seasons 

Final Thoughts:
I didn’t start watching this show until the fourth season. How did I ever make this mistake? The worse part was this was before Netflix and Hulu streaming, so I had to go buy each season…..Even now with Netflix I would still make those purchases. Some of the best episode were between season 2 and 5. Not only did they get some of the best guest star, each episode was filled with pop culture references, most of them being from the eighties and early nineties. 

James Roday was the star of the show, never missing a beat. His chemistry with Duly Hill was off the chart and made this series so much more enjoyable to watch. But the best part was watching Omundson grow within his role making Lassiter one of the best characters, and is the reason I watch Galavant today. 

If this want enough, the running jokes through out the series were the best. Try to find the Pineapple in each episode. Also the specialty episodes that got a revised version of the theme song, Just Brilliant!

If you love fake psychic detective shows, check out Netflix as soon as possible. This is a must watch series and to this day I am still missing it. I give this Two Thumbs Up, Let us know your thoughts of the show and leave a comment below.
