Goofs

Unless Henry was secretly a multaimillionaire, there's no way that he could have afforded a home near the beach in Santa Barbara, especially being retired. A house in that area would be worth nearly a million dollars (for a tiny home) and up to $10-15 million for a multi-bedroom dwelling.The taxes alone would make the home unaffordable, especially considering that he is a retired police officer who was not the department chief.

Quotes

Burton 'Gus' Guster: So now I have a cat?
Shawn Spencer: An orange tabby. Last Christmas you made her a tiny Santa hat and she adores it.
Burton 'Gus' Guster: Fantastic. I can't even have a make-believe boy cat.
Shawn Spencer: Gus, a boy cat would never serve my purposes nearly as well. Next time I need you, Pickles is having kittens.
Burton 'Gus' Guster: Pickles?
Shawn Spencer: Mrs. Pickles is her full name. Although, I'm not actually sure cats can marry outside of Boston.

Well done
20 July 2006 | by dmitrirlcSee all my reviews

It is unusual to find an intelligent comedy out there in the TV wasteland, but 'Psych' is unusual in many aspects. The writing is quick, intelligent and witty plus the acting is fast-paced and done in an almost believable way even though the premise would be considered far-fetched by some. The storyline does cause the watcher to look at the clues that are given and try to figure out who did what and to whom. James Roday is perfect for the part that he plays, bringing to the part some of the comic timing and zaniness that he showed in 'Repli-Kate', one of his earlier movies. This series shows that he has refined his craft since then. I hope that this series is given the respect and audience that it deserves
