Who knew that psychics, crime and comedy make for a fantastic TV show?
Returning for a seventh season in February, “Psych” promises to be as entertaining as always. The show follows the accidental psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday, “The Dukes of Hazzard”) and his partner Burton Guster, also known as Gus, (Dulé Hill, “The West Wing”) as they solve crimes on behalf of the Santa Barbara Police Department.
The beauty of “Psych” is that the writers don’t take anything too seriously. In the midst of a plethora of police shows, this comedy stands out in its feel-good and genuine atmosphere. The humor is meant to be childish and silly instead of contrived and dark. Additionally, the show makes each character likable in their own way.
Hopefully, the plots will continue to be exciting and Gus and other minor characters become more developed this season. For longtime fans, “Psych” cannot come quickly enough.
“Psych” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on USA.
