Storyline

Shawn Spencer was ruthlessly trained in observation as a boy by his father Henry, a strict cop, who moved away years ago, to his relief. Shawn never was able to keep a job. Now a TV news item on a high-profile kidnapping in the wealthy McCallum family makes him attempt a longstanding dream, solving crime for a living. So he recruits his shy youth friend Burton 'Gus' Guster to set up an agency. To get access to the police, he poses as a medium, which bully detective Carlton Lassiter finds frustratingly hard to unmask. the case is harder then expected, but cocky Shawn's perseverance pays off.
