Trivia

Kirsten Nelson was pregnant in real-life, when she auditioned for her role as Interim Chief Karen Vick. During the first few episodes, she gave birth; from that time on she had to wear a fake pregnant stomach for the remainder of her character's pregnant period, to compensate for her diminishing belly.

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.

Thumbs up!
8 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

I thought this was a pretty good pilot. I was laughing pretty consistently throughout. I also enjoyed his observational skills and the way the special effects team highlighted them. The buddy relationship between Shawn and Gus was fun and I liked the dramatic tension between Shawn and his Dad, especially considering dad's feelings on psychics and private investigators. The supporting cast at the police station was adequate with the chief really shining compared to the two detectives having an affair.

I also liked how they used Gus' very focused vocation-based observation skills to give Shawn a hand at solving the crime at the end. The whole conversation about Shawn needing Gus to take notes because Shawn zones out really rang true for me, plus Shawn occasionally needs the 'everyman view' for something he hadn't considered.

I give this a thumbs up. It's one of the few summer shows I've picked up and so far, it is clearly the winner.
