I am loving the opening scenes where Henry comes across as super sweet. He wasn't always terrible father. No, most of the time he was merely a deeply flawed father who was only doing what he thought best.
Is that Mohinder? It is! It's Mohinder! Ooh, Sendhil's using his real voice.
And finally we have Abigail again.
OMG. I LOVE HOW SHAWN IS RIGHT NEXT TO HIS GIRLFRIEND AND YET HE AND LASSITER ARE SHAMELESSLY FLIRTING. "I do his job, and sometimes his hair." "I'm sorry, Spencer, I can't play with you today..." ASJLKSADHHALADHL!
"I was too harsh."
"Just now. Perhaps always." = WIN.
... Lassiter is evil. And so are the writers. Because who is Shawn talking to? Sendhil's character? Abigail? Lassiter?
Shawn scooting back is SO HILARIOUS. Mostly because we don't hear or see the chair moving, Shawn's just further away when we cut to him.
THIS IS COMPLETELY SATISFYING, I AGREE, CARLTON.
They're eyefucking through a mirror. THROUGH A TWO-WAY MIRROR.
THE THEME TUNE. THE MOTHERFUCKING THEME TUNE. THE WHOLE CREDITS. OH MY FUCKING GOD.
This show, you guys. This show is a neverending glee factory of AWESOME.
Why am I not at all surprised that this episode is co-written by Steve Franks? Also, Anupam Nigam! YAY!
Wonderful Harry Potter reference. Plus, my third favourite Psych running gag. "I've heard it both ways." Yay.
Shawn and Gus should totally kiss during one of these close whispering sessions.
And now we have Homer Simpson whispering.
Is this the bit where I admit what I wanted to see was Shawn emulating the dance before catching Meena? Yes, yes it is.
That was a great wonderfully cliché Shawn/Jules moment, I have to say. I still think they're too, too cute.
Oh man, I love Roday and Hill so much. They are selling this scene.
"No. He's definitely bugged by O'Hara dating this guy." OH MY GOD. THAT IS THE BEST THING EVER. THE WAVE.
Shawn's very, very jealous. Er. I don't know how I feel about this.
Jules getting too into being undercover again, woot!
Shawn's unintentional offensive remarks make me uncomfortable. And yet they're so in character.
We haven't really had a genuine Shawnvision this episode. Everything he's noticed has been kind of glaringly obvious.
That resolution was even more obvious than usual, but since this episode has had more than enough win, I don't care. Is this the first episode where no one has actually died? That would make the title incorrect. But I guess "Bollywood Attempted Homicide" doesn't quite have the right flow.
"I solve a case every week. And usually one around Christmas." --- I love metahumour.
This is annoying. I like Shawn/Jules. I prefer it with a lighter touch, but I do like it. However, I actually also really like Abigail, as it turns out.
I once again feel like the writers have come up with this GREAT idea, have knocked everything they've done out of the ballpark, but have lacked a small yet crucial element. In this episode? Not having the full Bollywood dance number. If you're going to do an ode to Bollywood, surely you include a scene where the regular cast get to dance? Isn't that kind of the point? I bet they were warned not to by the network and compromised with the amazing credits.
Teen-Gus is too cool, and Teen-Shawn is too articulate. You need to slur it on up there a little, mini-Shawn. Listen to Liam. Listen to Roday.
In other news, I TOTALLY FORGOT they put the Psych-outs on the website. So I have a whole bunch to watch, wooot!
And I just realised we only have a few more episodes before the mid-year hiatus, which --- HATE.
