PSYCH:"The Head, the Tail, the Whole Damn Episode" Review

Longtime fans of PSYCH know that this show loves to pay homage to horror movies. They've had ghost stories, runaway mummies, a tribute to The Exorcist and even an episode that took place at a sleepaway camp complete with a homicidal maniac on the loose. With so many similarly themed episodes under their belt, it's safe to say that they know what they're doing, which is why I was so looking forward to their take on the granddaddy of all blockbusters: Jaws. Unfortunately, what we got was Flipper.

Even notable sci-fi all-stars Jeri Ryan (Star Trek: Voyager) and Michael Hogan (Battlestar Gallactica) couldn't breathe any life into this boring episode. It pains me to say that because I love the show and can usually count on it for a few great laughs or some wacky undercover work by Shawn and Gus. But this episode had none of the playful humor we're accustomed to and dragged on with a mystery that never seemed interesting. Hell, we didn't even get much in the way of movie references apart from more nods to Jaws, including the funniest one when Shawn's dad Henry (Corbin Bersen) described Jaws 4 as the worst sequel ever filmed. (Personally, I'd go with the follow-ups to The Matrix, but I see his point.) Even if the mystery isn't that strong each week, there's a certain amount of silliness and adventure we expect from PSYCH and this episode just didn't deliver.
