Romance is hardly the focus of "Psych" -- unless you count the chemistry between James Roday and Dulé Hill -- but there has always been some sexual tension for Shawn (Roday) and Juliet (Maggie Lawson).
And barring the occasional flirtation or acknowledgment of possible interest, down the line, the show has been content not really going there for the last five seasons.
Until this summer's finale when Shawn and Juliet shared a rather serious kiss. This complicates things on several levels. Juliet is currently seeing Declan (Nestor Carbonell), and the show has already been renewed for a sixth season. If the two actually do make it official, can they stretch the relationship out over another 23 episodes?
We'll have a much better idea after the Nov. 10 mid-season premiere, "Extradition II: The Actual Extradition Part," which sees Shawn (sort of) coming clean about his feelings.
There's also some crime-y stuff in there, »
Hallelujah! Most of your beloved Lost stars have new TV or movie roles since the series ended on May 23. So where are they now?
It seemed like the end of the world when the characters on Lost finally said farewell to the island for good on May 23. Although things will never be Quite the same again, we are totally happy to report that the show’s stars have (for the most part) landed big new roles! So where can we find Lost alum this year? Read on, BFFs!
This adorable Brit has come a long way since playing rocker Charlie Pace — not only does he get to make out with Megan Fox in Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” video, but he’s also starring in the 2011 film Soldiers of Fortune.

Will the summer finale live up to the expectations we as Psych fans want, or will the comedy in this Bourne-esque episode be too undercover?
The amount of guest stars this week was the magic number four. First off Nestor Carbonell returns as Decland Rand. Although there was not much time on camera this time, Carbonell did well in his part. Next, Psych reunited Carbonell with another Lost star. Jon Gries (Roger Linus on Lost) played Strabinsky, a spy who removed himself from “the grid. I have to say Gries fell into this part quite well. His perfect timing of jokes to Shawn were nice and it was nice to see Shawn play off the jokes nicely. The next guest was Franka Potente. You may know her as Marie from The Bourne movies. Oddly enough, she is playing a spy named Nadia. Her scenes were ok but most of the »

If you’re a sucker for funny men turning into serious sweethearts, then you loved last night’s Psych. Shawn and Gus helped a framed spy, Nadia (The Bourne Identity’s Franka Potente), clear her name. They didn’t believe she was innocent, which is why Shawn wore a wire when he had one last meeting with her. She hit on him, and he rebuffed her advances. Gus asked why since Shawn had been lusting after her (maybe because she was obviously playing him?), and that’s when Juliet, who was “watching the van” as Lasse and the military special »

When Abigail (Rachael Leigh Cook) left Shawn (James Roday) at the end of Season 4, and Juliet (Maggie Lawson) had her near-death experience at the hands of the hands of the Hitchcock-copying Yin, all signs pointed to a Season 5 hook-up for "Psych's" unrealized couple.
But it seems like we're getting further from the possibility with each episode.
The series' summer run comes to an end Sept. 8, and it finds Shawn increasingly angsty over Juliet (who's shacking up with returning guest star Nestor Carbonell) when he's approached by a disgraced (and possibly evil) government spy who needs help clearing her name. Ample "Bourne Identity" references ensue, which is especially fun, given the spy in question is played by "Bourne" star Franka Potente -- who we'll always love best for "Run Lola Run."
There's also helicopters, gunfire, foot chases and Juliet in a towel. USA is promising unexpected twists, and given the show's history of mid-season cliffhangers, »
You’ve probably already heard me say that Psych has let me down once or twice this season. It’s still easily one of my favorite shows, but a couple of episodes struck me as not quite being up to par. Last week’s episode delivered the goods, and tonight’s summer finale One, Maybe Two, Ways Out is among the best the series has produced.
The action is turned up, Shawn can’t figure out who to trust, and the new man in Jules’ life isn’t helping him concentrate. Of course, he may be distracted by a couple of other 80′s guests, but this isn’t an episode that leaves him a lot of downtime to get his bearings. Shot at, »

The Psych Season 5 Summer finale is here. In Episode 9, "One, Maybe Two, Ways Out," Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) find themselves in the midst of a Bourne Identity-like hunt and chase after a U.S. Government Spy seeks their help in clearing her name for a crime she supposedly didn’t commit. Guest stars include with Franke Potente, Jon Fries and Nestor Carbonell. Watch the preview clip for Psych Season 5 Episode 9: One, Maybe Two, Ways Out [jambovideo id="239464" wide="yes" /] »

And as the title would have you believe, he's playing the upgraded version of Shawn (James Roday). Does such a thing exist? We can't imagine it does. Carbonell plays Declan Rand, a criminal profiler who teams up with the Sbpd to catch a possible serial killer who's offing old people with herbal supplements.
Declan also trumps Shawn in both sleuthing and pop culture references, which, as you can see in this clip, does not go over too well:
He sure seems perfect, but there's got to be something off about him and it looks to be chronic narcissism. Hidden in the corner of one of the episodes stills, in what is presumably Declan's lair, is this giant Warholian portrait:

In the 1980s, Curt Smith was one-half of the highly-successful pop duo Tears for Fears. These days, Smith is still performing his music and you'll be able to see and hear his work on tonight's Psych entitled Episode 5.08: Shawn 2.0, where he will appear as a guest-starring actor. You will also be able to hear his cover version of the Psych theme song as well. Smith recently held a conference call to discuss his involvement on Psych and here's what he had to say:
I want to know what can you tell us about the Tears for Fears version or the Curt Smith version of the Psych theme song. Obviously it's become a very popular theme song. It's a very fun theme song. How did you sort of want to reinterpret it?
I have to come right out and be honest, and tell you that, as huge a fan of Psych as I am, one or two episodes this season have let me down a bit. I’m not absolutely sure why that is, but I think that we have come to a point in the show where overplaying the general doubt in Spencer’s abilities is actually annoying.
Much like the oft-compared (even rather brilliantly within the show) The Mentalist, or something like House, after the first dozen or so times our heroes turn out to be right, it would be nice if the rest of the cast opened to the idea that they might be right.

For me, the Emmys meant a paid vacation to L.A. and a chance to score as much swag as I could fit into a carry-on. But for the Lost gang, it meant a last chance to say goodbye, to the show and each other. Somehow, though, when I spoke with exec producer Damon Lindelof, Terry O’Quinn, Nestor Carbonell and Jorge Garcia, they managed to hold back the tears. Maybe that’s because O’Quinn distracted himself by playing coy about his bromance with Michael Emerson and their (hush-hush, don’t-say-it-out-loud) hopes to reteam on screen; Carbonell had Peter »

The Emmys are Sunday! The Emmys are Sunday! And I’m not only planning to watch the telecast, I’ll actually be live-blogging it along with my pal @EWMandiBierly. (Yes, PopWatch writers refer to each other by their Twitter handles now. How gauche!) I have mixed feelings about this year’s ceremony, however, since somewhere along the way somebody forgot to give Vanessa (L. Yeah) Williams her fourth consecutive nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy (and in a season where she deliciously declared “My favorite moment of the day is throwing out my breakfast muffin in front of a homeless person! »

"Psych's" season of exceptional guests continues with the August 25 episode "Ferry Tale."
Shawn (James Roday) and Gus's (Dulé Hill) ferry ride gets ugly when a group of prisoners, led by "True Blood's current Lafayette love interest Kevin Alejandro, turn on their U.S. Marshall escort (Chi McBride) and take all the passengers hostage.
McBride can currently be seen as a regular on "Human Target," and he's probably best known for his work on "Boston Public," but for us, he'll always be "Pushing Daisies'" crotchety private eye, Emerson Cod. That role also particularly lends itself to this one, with McBride playing a grumpy, slightly bumbling man of the law.
But where do feigned psychic powers come into all this? We have no idea. There hasn't been a murder-less episode of "Psych" since we don't know when.
Next up? The September 1 episode, "Shawn 2.0," which looks to be the pinnacle »
The title may call this a review, and I’ll give you my take on the bonuses, but a true review at this point is only trumped in meaninglessness by a review of the complete series, also out on DVD. No positive or negative commentary on the show, or its final season, is going to sway anyone about anything. When the final tally was in, people either thought the final season, and ultimately the finale, was completely brilliant, or insultingly stupid, and there isn’t really a live dialog between the camps.
Wherever you stand on the show’s merits, one thing the show has definitely managed well is the attention to its fans, and that includes the attention given to the DVD releases. Always filled with just the sort of fun and entertainment that will make fans feel they’re getting some actual value from the purchase, the DVD sets have added new spins, »

Chicago – A Blu-ray review of the controversial final season of “Lost” is not the place to get into arguments over the quality of the actual finale, so I’ll get my opinion out of the way quickly and then we can discuss the Blu-ray release more than the ending specifically — the final season of “Lost” is arguably the best final season of any program ever and the last episode is the perfect bookend for a show too ambitious to be truly influential. I promise to get into that more in coverage of the upcoming Emmys and in “Best of the Year” features in a few months. For now, let’s move on to the best TV Blu-ray of the season, even if you disagree with my opinion of the quality of the finale or the overall show.

First things first, we will treat this as a big fat rumor for now, but it would be absolutely awesome if it turned out to be true!
According to sources over at Cmb, director Guillermo del Toro is set to direct Dr. Strange for Marvel/Disney, and the official announcement should come any day now. For those you who don't know, at one point Del Toro was trying to get the Dr. Strange film off the ground, but it never ended up working out and the rights to the property ended up back at Marvel. He is the perfect director to bring Dr. Strange to life though! So I seriously hope this happens. It would make sense for it to happen, after all, Del Toro recently found a new home at Disney Studios who now owns Marvel's properties. He is in a perfect place to come in and make this dream project of his. »

That's it. That's all you need to know about the Psych panel. Sure other things happened. we learned about an upcoming episode called "Viagra Falls" guest starring William Devane and Carl Wethers. We saw a clip of an upcoming episode featuring Freddie Prinze Jr. We were told that Franka Potente and C. Thomas Howell are guest starring in an ep. Nestor Carbonell! was in the sizzle video and has a multi-episode arc. Maggie Lawson said, "I will say that Shawn Spencer is a boy and I will say that [real life boyfriend] James Roday is a man." Series creator Steve Franks talked about how directing 6 episodes has made him a better writer. He also revealed that he was the foreman of the Tiki Room at Disneyland for 8 years. Producer Kelly Kulchak promised that this season will be 85% cooler than last season. Curt Smith from Tears for Fears performed "Shout" with James Roday. »
"Psych" returns for a fifth season of rapid punning, '80s referencing and "Mentalist" mocking on July 14. And who's going to be along for the ride? None other than "Lost" star Nestor Carbonell, whose expertly applied guy-liner is much better suited to Santa Barbara than the island.
"He's timeless," star James Roday gushed to press. "His face is sweet, and his hair is sweet, and he's a very sweet man as well."
That affection won't likely translate to the show. Carbonell's role makes him sound like the perfect foil to Roday's faux psychic detective Shawn Spencer.
Described as a criminal profiler who bests Shawn in most departments, Declan Rand will create problems -- professionally and romantically -- for Shawn in multiple episodes.
