Psych: Season 1 Reviews

February 14, 2020
The fun is in the tag-along, and the heretofore unheralded [James] Roday displays a knack for comedy.

Shawn is both in your face and completely absent as a human being.

In "Psych," Shawn is supposed to be charmingly insouciant, and Gus is supposed to be comically uptight, and neither seems at ease in the assigned part.

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

Better show title? Monk for Morons.

Psych, a new detective series on USA, is bipolar: inventive one minute and ploddingly formulaic the next.
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.

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.
July 7, 2006
Can you enjoy a show without liking the main character? Psych puts that unnecessary challenge to viewers.
July 7, 2006
The premise is promising
July 7, 2006
Psych isn't nearly as much fun as it ought to be, offering a breezy but not particularly captivating twist on a very well-worn buddy formula.
July 7, 2006
The hammy younger actor [James Roday] isn't quite as cute as he thinks he is, and he belongs on a louder comedy series , a laugh-track sitcom in which his clowning might fit in more naturally.
