Psych 5.03 "Not Even Close â?¦ Encounters" Review

First off, Freddie Prinze did an amazing job as Dennis, the sci-fi fanatic, in this episode. His timing in everything worked and he really had me beleiving that a guy like him could be a fan of sci-fi/comics. The one thing about his presence I did not like was his recinciliation with his wife. I think the writers made it too easy for the couple to settle their differences. It would have made for a better story line if the couple didn't have that easy transition to being a good couple again.

Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) reconnect with their old friend Dennis (Freddie Prinze Jr.).

As for the episode itself, I have to say it could have been better. I know aliens is a big topic for many shows, and it's even bigger for this one which is why I was dissapointed in the story. Granted the opening sequence was by far the greatest one of the series (in my oppinion), the rest of the episode became alittle confusing for an episode of Psych. The conclusion of the case itself presented once again Shawn with a way to easily stall the bad guys untill Juliet and Lassie show up. With this being Psychs second "Alien" episode (the first was episode 1.11 "He Loves me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me, Ooops He's Dead) I expected more from the writers.

Hi ya'll! Laura from USA again :) What did you all think of Freddie Prinze? Pretty big year for him, right? First 24, now this. Pretty impressive to tackle both the drama and comedy world all in one year. So is he your favorite guest star so far? Or are there other favorites?
