A new episode of Psych is airing as I type this. I was late to start watching Psych and only started watching it regularly last year, and that was only after catching a few of the reruns. I have been watching more of the reruns as they air and was lucky enough to catch the pilot the other day. After watching some of the newer episodes and than jumping back to the first season, it was interesting to see how much Shawn over exaggerated his reactions to his “psychic” abilities. Now Shawn just touches his head when he senses something, but back then he would jump around, and shake, rattle and roll. His reactions were funny but sometimes they got to the point of being annoying, so I can see why they changed it over time.
In tonight’s episode (Shawn Rescues Darth Vader) Shawn was hooked up to a lie detector by Lassiter and was finally asked if he was really a Psychic, but this was already after he blurted out that he loved Juliet. After much hesitation he finally answered that he was indeed a Psychic and ended up tricking the detector. Of course Shawn ended up solving the case, and it wasn’t until the end of the episode that we see a flashback of Shawn’s Father teaching him how to beat a lie detector. Isn’t TV great?
