Psych (Tv Series) 2006

Psych is an American comedy television series created by Steve Franks and broadcast on USA Network. The show stars James Roday as Shawn Spencer, a young crime consultant for the Santa Barbara Police Department (SBPD) whose “heightened observational skills” and impressive detective instincts allow him to convince people that he is psychic.

The program also stars Dulé Hill as Shawn’s best friend, straight man, and reluctant partner Burton “Gus” Guster, as well as Corbin Bernsen as Shawn’s captious father, Henry. During the second season, an animated segment was added to the series titled “The Big Adventures Of Little Shawn And Gus”. Psych debuted July 7, 2006, immediately following the fifth season premiere of Monk. The show was the highest-rated U.S. basic cable television premiere of 2006. Psych completed its third season run on February 20, 2009, and has been renewed for a fourth season starting in Summer 2009.

Plot: During his childhood, Shawn Spencer developed a remarkable talent for noticing the tiniest of details under the guidance of his policeman father. However, upon growing up he found it difficult to get a job, and spends most of his time using his skill to give the police anonymous tips. However, the tips are so good that some cops become suspicious that he is involved with the crimes himself. To clear his name Shawn finally settles on a career: he pretends to be a psychic. No one really believes him, but he continues to be so helpful to the police that they keep calling him in on cases they can’t solve. Shawn soon brings his childhood friend Gus into his scheme, and between their bantering they manage to solve every case they’re presented with.
Theme song
The theme song for Psych is “I Know You Know” by The Friendly Indians, series creator Steve Franks’ band. It has been re-done in Season 2 with a Christmas theme for the episode “Gus’ Dad May Have Killed an Old Guy” (episode 10), as well as sung in Spanish for “Lights, Camera, Homicidio” (episode 13). In Season 3, the episodes “Disco Didn’t Die. It Was Murdered!” (episode 5), “Earth, Wind and Wait For It…” (episode 12), and “Truer Lies” (episode 14) use the extended full-length version of “I Know You Know”, but all other episodes use the usual, shortened version.
