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.

Goofs

When Shawn returns to the set with the nail gun, we see a man changing the cue cards. The next card to come up is from the beginning of the scene, reading "...de caridad de Serena. Solo tengo que ponerme mi traje. Corrine: Dime, Chad, me veo..." - "...Serena's charity [ball]. I just have to put on my suit. Corrine: Tell me, Chad, do I look..." See more »

Quotes

Shawn Spencer: [Quintessa says Nunez only came to her dressing room to rehearse lines] No, he's not running lines. He's holding a feather duster, dipping himself in pancake batter. And he's quite naked.

Mui Bueno!
27 January 2008 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

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.
