Fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer James Roday and his best friend Gus Dulé Hill are cracking the case – and cracking up audiences everywhere – in all 16 Season Three episodes from the quick-witted detective series Psych. After earning a reputation for taking on the unusual cases that leave most sleuths scratching their heads, Shawn and Gus are in for more mayhem this season as they tackle mysteries that range from the decidedly abnormal to the hauntingly paranormal. Join guest stars Cybill Shepherd The L Word, Gary Cole Pineapple Express, Phylicia Rashad A Raisin in the Sun and many more in this fresh and funny show that Maureen Ryan of Chicago Tribune declares, “Roday and Hill have the kind of chemistry you just can't manufacture.”
As Psych's second year drew to a close, Gus Dulé Hill had become a pharmaceutical rep and Shawn James Roday welcomed his long-lost mother, Madeleine Cybill Shepherd, back to town. In all other respects, the show remains the same. Gus just has two jobs instead of one, and the detecting continues. Later, Shawn reconnects with his treasure-hunting Uncle Jack Steven Weber and former flame Abigail Rachael Leigh Cook, who seems likely to return in the future. The same goes for Chief Vick's sister, Coast Guard Commander Dunlap Jane Lynch, who has eyes for the still-married Lassie Timothy Omundson.
Other highlights include "Talk Derby to Me," in which Jules Maggie Lawson infiltrates a roller-derby team in order to catch some thieves, "Lassie Did a Bad, Bad Thing," in which Shawn and Gus race to protect their uptight colleague's good name, "Tuesday, the 17th," a surprisingly scary take-off on Friday the 13th, and "Murder?... Anyone?... Anyone?... Bueller?," a high school reunion episode filled with references to the generation-defining films of the late John Hughes. And just to keep the fan worship going, Ferris Bueller's Alan Ruck and The Breakfast Club's All Sheedy make guest appearances during the season.
If this 16-episode set drags a little in the middle, Psych continues to bring the funny, and the entire cast has an appealing chemistry we even find out a little more about Kirsten Nelson's Vick, such as her affection for Phil Collins. Like previous sets, this one includes a gag reel, above-average deleted scenes, and 12 commentary tracks split three ways: audio, podcast without show dialogue, and video on-screen interviews with the writers about specific episodes. Granted, the doubling of overcast Vancouver for sunny Santa Barbara remains completely unconvincing, but you can't win 'em all. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
