This will not be so much of a review. It will just be me saying how great the show is. I am a fan of nearly every crazy thing that goes on in the show.
Oh, I am so sad that Psych has ended. It was a great series and the series finale was really fun as well. I missed the earlier seasons, but I’ve been following them starting from the season where Mister Yang first appeared, season 3, I think.
Psych is such a funny and hilarious show. Everyone, even the bad guy sometimes, gets in on the craziness in their own way. Never has a show about people dying every week been so fun. The cases actually stay decently grounded if not for the characters involved in them. A few are farther out there, such as the one where everyone is invited to a mansion. Of course they get trapped and people start dying.
The show and characters can also transition into seriousness pretty well, mostly the episodes dealing with Yang and Yin. They still never lose that charm, though.
The zaniness pervading the show and the two main characters, Shawn and Gus, allowed them to do all sorts of even crazier things in the name of awesome, such as the musical episode. Each and every character can have all these ridiculous quirks, and everyone goes with it because the entire show is a sort of crazy. The coroner, Woody, and the head detective, Lassiter are just a few of the stand-out examples. Even Shawn’s father has a quirky side, being that he taught Shawn how to be a detective through ridiculous training starting as a child. Juliet and Chief Vick are a little more low-key, but even they get their own moments, like how Chief Vick just rolls with having psychic detectives.
Many of the guest stars are equally weird and fun. I am not a product of 80’s television, so I don’t know most of them, but they are fantastic on the show anyway.
For the series finale, I think it was a good way to end it. The adventure continues on for Shawn and Gus in their new city. And now Santa Barbara is being taken care of by Chief Lassiter, the new head detective and the hew junior detective. In the after pshow, even Mary Lightly showed up, and that was great to see.
I’ll miss Psych, and Shawn and Gus’s antics most of all. One of my favorite moments was when Shawn brought a fake beard that he intended to use as a disguise, but then Gus showed up also wanting to go in. They cut the beard in half so each one was only wearing half. Good times. Goodbye Psych.
