PSYCH: "Romeo and Juliet and Juliet" Review Season 5, Episode 1


Has PSYCH reached Season 5 already? Wow. Not that I'm complaining, it's just that time flies when Shawn and Gus are having fun. After having their way with so many classic movie genres (horror, adventure, Western, etc.) over the course of the series, PSYCH finally got to check another notable one off their list in this season premiere: the martial arts film. In addition, we picked back up from where we left off last season: with Shawn's father Henry taking a job with the Santa Barbara Police Department and Juliet recovering from her harrowing near-death experience at the hands of still-at-large serial killer Mr. Yin. Like many of PSYCH's season premieres, this one was about average. I was hoping for a bit more of an interesting mystery, but as usual, the performances by James Roday and Dule Hill made up for the overly familiar story.


The plot (as they alluded to on many occasions) was Romeo and Juliet or West Side Story with an Asian twist. The children of rival Triad gang leaders fell in love and had to hide their relationship, or else a full-scale war between the gangs would break out. Their tryst was discovered by the evil brother of one of the lovers, which led to betrayal, kidnapping, scheming and a couple of fight scenes.
