TV Review: Psych

The show I'm TiVoing this summer is Psych on USA.

The premise: cop-wanna-be pretends to be psychic to solve crimes on a consulting basis. Hilarity will ensure.

The truth: hilarity does ensue.

Great performances all around by James Roday, Dule Hill, Corbin Bernsen (yes, Corbin 'not much since LA Law' Bernsen), and some new and lesser known folks.

It's mystery meets comedy meets buddy show. I think it's more comedy than mystery, but if you have a sense of humor about your mysteries and enjoy odd characters, then this is great viewing. The dialog is well-written, and the show is clever.

If you are looking for real-crime, real detectives, or real psychics, you are in the wrong place.

AV rating: 4/5 stars.
