anyone else catch Shawn comment he watches The Mentalist? the show with the same premiss as psych but under the drama/comedy/mystery mantle instead of just the comedy/mystery one.

oh, and i just wanted to clarify, Psych is the superior show. its almost technical; in The Mentalist, they are attempting to tackle one to many genres, the interactions between the characters (in the writing, not the acting) are clumsy, forensics are completely ignored and, well, it has poor verisimilitude. granted Psych portrayal of reality isn't realistic either, but it's not trying to be, and because of that the show can take grater focus on what we love about it: having this goof-ball and his buddy walk into the most tense of possible situations and spout ridiculous yet incredibly productive things while acting a fool.

Yes, I caught that. Are you finding this season doesn't seem to be as funny as the previous ones?

. . . maybe a little, but i mantain they need new blood in the show, Lasider no longer represents 'the sceptic' so theres no 'regular character' in direct conflict with Shawn, and i think they need a character like that to keep him on his toes (at the vary lest it would give him someone else to mess with).
also, just re-watched the pilot, Shawn is supposed to be a ridiculously good shot with a gun (like Lethal Weapon(1) good), was that ever gonna come back? cuz i think its cool and could 'prolly be a good plot twist in the show.

haha, yea i enjoyed his comment on the mentalist. i havent seen the mentalist, but it seems unoriginal. i agree with you about the need for new blood on the show, or really just anything new. maybe a multiple episode case instead of just case-of-the-week? or a change of location? i still love psych, but 3 three seasons of the same characters in the same place doing the sane things tends to get stale. this season has been less funny but i thought episode 14 was hilarious.
