The new season of Psych starts tonight!
If you're unfamiliar with the show, here's a brief blurb of what it's about: Shawn Spenser pretends to be a psychic and helps the local police department solve crimes. Always at his side is his best friend, Burton Guster. The friendship between these two is really the heart of the show, and if I had posted my Valentine Day's Couple Blog like I'd wanted, Shawn and Gus would've been at the top.
Anyway, I've been waiting so long for this new episode that's airing tonight. The last new episode aired April 11, 2012 and ended with one hell of a cliffhanger. I'm assuming Psych fans all know what I'm talking about, but in the event that you maybe haven't seen the Santabarbaratown epsiode, I don't want to spoil it for you, but...
COME ON!!! YOU CAN'T MAKE US WAIT THAT LONG TO FIND OUT WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT!
Except that's exactly what they did. Sigh.
In honor of the show's return, I thought I'd share some of my favorite episodes, quotes and moments from the show. There are many from which to choose, so obviously I won't share them all. If you're a fellow psych-o, and I didn't mention your favorite moment, please mention it in the comments below because I'm sure I love that moment too.
2. Last Night Gus- Psych's version of The Hangover. The entire episode is hilarious, but the shoot out in the apartment scene at the end is even more so.
3. Dual Spies- Psych's homage to Twin Peaks. I've never watch Twin Peaks, and I found this to be an absolutely hysterical episode, so I can only imagine the hilarity that would've been mine had I actually watched Twin Peaks.
4. One, Maybe Two Ways Out- Shawn and Gus get involved with a spy (played by Franka Potente) and help her disappear off the grid.
5. Any episode featuring Cary Elwes as international art thief Pierre Desperaux.
Favorite Gus's Nicknames
Gus "Silly Pants" Jackson
Gus T.T. Showbiz (the extra 't' stands for extra talent)
And this one...
Shawn: This is my partner, John Schmit. His middle names are Jacob Jingle Heimer
Random Guy: You're saying his name is John Jacob Jingle Heimer Schmit?
Shawn: Yes. It was my name too, but I changed it...because of all the people shouting when I went out.
Gus, Don't Be A... List
—Don't be such a gloomy you, Gus.
—Gus, don't be the ribs that flip over Fred Flintstone's Car.
—Gus, don't be the American adaptation of the British version of Gus.
—Gus, don't be the one game at Chuck E. Cheese that isn't broken.
And this one...
Shawn: Gus, don't be Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Marzipan.
Gus: It's Azkaban.
Shawn: I've heard it both ways.
Oh, I am so looking forward to this new season. I hear there's a musical episode coming our way. And a Clue themed episode. It's going to be fan-freaking-tastic.
