Psych is a USA Network series that follows the highly-comical detective endeavors of fake psychic Shawn Spencer. Shawn, brought up by his cop father, Henry Spencer, was trained, given powers of acute observation and other skills needed to solve mysteries in Henry's hopes that Shawn would one day join the long line of cops in the family. However, Shawn soon strayed from Henry's vision and spent many years of his young-adult life working various odd jobs. Shawn's hobby was calling in tips to the police on high-profile crimes that he caught on the news. One day, however, Shawn's hobby smacked him in the face, as he was brought to the police station as a suspected accomplice to a recent murder.

Then and there, Shawn made up the lie that he was psychic, and through some highly convincing theatrics, it worked. The police then hired him as the "Head Psychic" and began to bring him in on difficult cases that usually had the police stumped. Along for all the adventures is Shawn's reluctant but loyal best friend, Burton "Gus" Guster, who has a straight, narrow, and secure job as a pharmaceutical sales representative. Disbelieving of Shawn's psychic charade is Head Detective Carlton Lassiter, who would sooner cuff Shawn than follow a "vision." Other central characters include Lassiter's partner, Juliet O'Hara, and Interim Police Chief Karen Vick, both of whom are often amused by Shawn's "psychic" influence.

Fake Psychic, Real Detectives ;)Rating: 2 likes, 1 dislikes

Let me just start off by saying that this is a genius and original idea. the writers make hilarious dialogues, and the storylines in every episode is always incredible and impressing. Have you ever seen a tv-show that in the middle of a sentence, the person saying it stops and thinks about whether or not the words he is saying makes sense? no? well probably because when writing a script, they always goes with flawless dialogues and conversations. This show makes all the conversations incredible, and it's hilarious every time either Shawn or Gus starts questioning each others grammar skills! apart from that, Shawn always comes up with ridiculous jokes which always gets on Gus's nerves. And since Shawn claims he is a psychic, he has to improvise and find new ways to convince the Police that he is right, and that he can solve the case. He also quotes other brilliant shows such as Heroes, Lost, Numb3rs etc. and a lot of movies! almost every episode you will hear either Gus or Shawn say "ooh it's just like in that movie with..." and so on, and they never ever get which movie the other one is referring to. all in all a brilliant show, with a great basic storyline, which don't go too deep (unfortunately), but is hilarious from episode to episode.
