Psych: Season 1 Reviews

February 14, 2020
The comedy is some of the best-written on television. Or anywhere.

The fun is in the tag-along, and the heretofore unheralded [James] Roday displays a knack for comedy.

The thing that makes 'Psych' worth watching is Shawn's quirky attitude.

You don't have to be a psychic to figure out why this charming show has been such a success.

Psych certainly has the makings of a fun and diverting series, one that feels like a nice bit of light summer programming.

In regards to Psych, what was seen out of its inaugural season was a mediocre but promising first half and an incredibly humorous and on-point second half that has fans everywhere eager for more.

The premise is promising
July 7, 2006
Psych is one of those happy collisions of an intelligent script and an appealing cast.
July 7, 2006
Granted, the premise is a stretch. But the gimmick allows for some clever comic jibes while creating some useful dramatic tension between Shawn and the cops, Shawn and his father, and Shawn and his best friend.

As with Monk, the crime is largely an afterthought. Psych similarly serves up murder as a fluffy souffle, but what a tasty way to end the week.
July 7, 2006
The lighthearted Psych charms even as it duplicates the structure and tone of Monk.
July 7, 2006
There are holes to fill, though, before this show gets up to Monk level. What's encouraging is that it starts solidly and has a chance to find itself.
