Most Annoying!

Has anyone else gotten annoyed that the theme tune to this awesome program keeps switching between the short version and the long version?? I'm one of those annoying people that loves singing along to theme tunes and annoying jingles for things and the constant indecision over which version to use keeps on throwing me off.. albeit only for a second... but still! It's Cheers all over again :( However if they decided that it would be better to use the longer version of The Big Bang Theory's theme tune that would be just AWESOME!

Is Psych perpetuating sterotypes?

I mean Gus is the typical black guy sidekick character who is supposedly the "smart one" but Shawn is always making him look dumb and dopey but Gus still laughs and is okay with it and Gus never gets any girls and Shawn gets them all. At first I didn't realize the possible undertones of this but I did think it was pretty silly that Shawn gets all the girls but then my friend said it was one step above a minstrel show and explained what that is. Im not sure if they meant it to be like that but I understand what he was saying, and no he isn't racist or nor is he black he is a white guy saying this so I dont know what I should think. On some level I think alot of these views of the trusty black sidekick guy play out in pop culture whether or not it is racist is debatable but it is definitely a stereotype that just seems like that is all there is nowadays, either the trusty black sidekick guy or the gangsta thug guy? What do you guys think?


Fantastic to see Ally Sheedy again, and what a good job she did. She plays a crazy very well.

Meet Mr. Yang

i love shules! i've been a fan since the first season. i really hope that the annoying abigail dusnt interfere too much in the juliet-shawn relationship. other than that small set-back at the end, i thought this was an AMAZING episode. i loved how the writers invented a plot that wud show a little more of shawn's serious side but still kept the show funny. i was laughing so hard wen gus was interrupting the investigating to pull silly little stunts for shawn. this overall was one of the best episodes this season.
