Critic Reviews for Psych Season 8

The real triumph of Psych is that it has lasted eight seasons, since it hails from a TV genre of absurd and sometimes silly humor that often wears out its welcome quickly.

I reckon everyone who watched "Lock, Stock" had [a] smashing time anyway.

Psych opened its eighth season with an episode that was largely a standalone, Juliet-less outing removed from continuity...yet one that was a special kind of "magical" nonetheless.

It was probably a good thing that Psych didn't attempt a big, splashy finale. The dressed-down version was the perfect way to end this series, to bookend what Psych was always about: relationships between characters and a boy growing up.

To call an episode of Psych "funny" is kind of redundant. In fact, I think the dictionary should now just have a picture of Shawn and Gus as the definition of the word "funny."

Even though it's had a successful run over almost nine years at this point, Psych looks like it's sustained by perpetual motion, not by the excitement of producing entertaining television.

After what feels like the longest hiatus in the history of cable television, our favorite psychic and his black friend have FINALLY returned to primetime - and with jolly good installment to boot!

Jan 9, 2014 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It was mostly a fun ride which, also like Monk, managed to create a nifty ensemble as well.

Mar 28, 2014 | Full Review…

Few shows display the level of unbridled, free-form silliness that Psych had.

Mar 25, 2014 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

I hope Psych never changes.

Audience Reviews for Psych: Season 8

  • Mar 01, 2019
    I really enjoyed this final season and I wish that there would be more.
  • Dec 30, 2017
    Season 8 is, unfortunately, proof that the show needs to end before it's too late as the writing becomes bland, the humor falls flat, and is overall disappointing with the exception of 1967: A Psych Odyssey and The Break-Up which are two of the best episodes of the entire show.
  • Jan 26, 2017
    It's quirky, witty, pop-culture referenced infused, heartfelt, and adorably silly; however, strip all that away; Psych's "beating heart" will always be the dynamic pairing of James Roday and Dule' Hill, which lifted Psych to 8 wonderful seasons, and to what is rarely accomplished in cinema nowadays: a satisfying end.

    Best TV show that I happened to stumble across. A hilarious mixture of detective work and comedy.
  • May 17, 2015
    Best TV show i have ever seen in my life!

    Best show ever!!!!!!!!!
  • Dec 28, 2014
    This show is amazing. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves laughing, sarcasm, bromance, and obscure pop culture references. It is one of my all time favorites.
  • Dec 25, 2014
    So sad this ended... I really hope they can pull a film out of it as a reunion.

    Slightly smarter and funnier love child of Scrubs and The Mentalist.

    Shawn is pretending to be psychic so the police department will hire him to solve cases for them. Apparently they won’t take him seriously if he is just really intuitive. The best part is his interactions with his best friend Gus. Those two are great together almost like a more cerebral version of Abbott and Costello. When they get to bickering with each other and comically playing off each other, it’s like they are making it up as they go. I mean the entire show is really funny, but the banter between those two is pure comedy. It’s amazing how much crime there is in little Santa Barbara because they are kept really busy with a lot of crazy murders and Shawn always solves them in some weird wacky way. If you like Monk, I think you will like this show too. The other secondary characters like the two cops Lassiter and Jewels, who are in charge of them or something are funny too. It’s clever and well written. I guess I hoped Shawn’s character would develop more. He’s so childish and kind of a jerk and he doesn’t seem to have learned anything. I guess that’s not the point of the show though.
