Storyline

Spanish-language Californian soap star Jorge Gama-Lobo, a Mexican, hires Psych to prove he didn't murder a fellow actor with a studio-made fake knife. Lassiter considers the film recording conclusive, but Shawn assesses Jorge's surprise genuine and gets the police chief to call him in. Snooping on director Lance's set, Shawn gets hired instead of a hopeless actor. Thus he gets access to the soap's internal politics as well as fan attention and sets a trap on air.

Trivia

When Lassiter looks at the stars' red chairs, including the one for Shawn, there is another chair with the name "Esteban Franks." Esteban is Spanish for Steven. Steve Franks was the one that created "Psych." See more »

Quotes

Jorge: [Shawn asks if Jorge's meatballs came from craft services] Yes, yes. Kelly knows they are my favorite. Usually I hunger for her meatballs, the way a jackal salivates for an injured possum, but suddenly, I have no appetite for them now.

Mui Bueno!

While the entire series is quite enjoyable, this particular episode of 'Psych' is especially funny, clever, and entertaining. Using the murder of a star on a hit Spanish soap opera as the main story, the episode mixes multiple comedic elements: bad acting, high school Spanish, over-the-top soap opera clichés, and colorful characters.

The episode felt very much like a play, in much the same way that "Soap Dish" was done. If you buy episodes (for example, from Apple iTunes or Amazon Unbox), then this is definitely a keeper.

I even loved how they cross-promoted the episode on the sister network to USA, Telemundo. That, in itself, is hilarious.
