Psych: The Movie television review

Set three years after the events of the Psych season finale, Psych: The Movie reunites the cast in San Fransisco where Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) will insert themselves into the attempted murder of Juliet‘s (Maggie Lawson) partner leading to a confrontation with an old enemy. Along with all the familiar faces (including a cameo of Timothy Omundson, who suffered a stroke shortly before the shooting of the TV-movie), we get the usual catchphrases (even if some of the them feel a bit forced) and goofiness from the fake psychic detective and his pharmaceutical salesman partner fans of the show remember fondly.

Psych - The Breakup

After eight years the doors of Psych are closed in the series finale which features Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) working one more murder case while Shawn struggles to tell his best friend that he’s decided to move to San Fransisco to be with Juliet (Maggie Lawson). While offering a typical wacky adventure, “The Breakup” makes several nice nods to the show’s past while showcasing that Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) is in good hands without Juliet, Shawn, and Gus as Betsy Brannigan (Mira Sorvino) proves more than up to the challenge of solving crime without the use of a fake psychic (and her choice of Junior Detective is a nice touch as well).
