Psych (Shawn Mocks)

Okay, I have to start with this; WHAT THE EVERLIVING FUCK?

At least they're acknowledging it as REALLY CREEPY. Oh, man.

OMG. BEST DESCRIPTION OF LASSITER EVER. Which brings me to this awesome Emerald Nuts advert starring Robert Goulet.

A++ use of 'thrice'.

Is this a Roday directed episode? It has all the hallmarks of one. (Attention to detail, pushing the envelope, horror.)

We're nine minutes in and this is DELIGHTFUL.

I wonder how many occult stores carry glass balls from IKEA.

And the answer on Roday direction is; no! But he did co-write. Props must therefore go to Andrew Bernstein for awesomeness.

HEY! IS THAT BIFF? Fun fact; the car salesman who sold me Sam reminded me of Biff lookswise (but thankfully not personality-wise.) I saw him the other day when I got my car serviced. He remembered me, which is always a sign of commendation in my book.

FOR THE LAST TIME, A KOALA IS NOT A BEAR. IT IS ALSO NOT BARE. SO THAT FOUNDATION? HAS A SUCKY, SUCKY NAME. (Plus, the only place you can legally cuddle a koala is Lone Pine Sanctuary near Brisbane.)

I am so in love with Myrtle, it's not funny.


This dude did it. And he's been hypnotising his patients.

This is a real dream, isn't it? Oh, Gus. You didn't realise Shawn was sharing that with you for private, sexy reasons?

"You're still a weird little dude and you'll probably be single for quite some time, but I think we can keep you out of jail." = Shawn's so very comforting when he wants to be.

It has to be said, Shawn's looking Very Fetching in this episode. He's hot, like chocolate, and I do believe in miracles.

"I was underestimating you, Shawn." --- well, at least he's honest. I like how he makes that sound like an insult, when actually it's kind of a compliment.

Touchy, feely Shawn is one of my favourite Shawns. Magic Head!

It's almost nice to think those ass-shots were there for a reason other than gratuitous use of the gaze is male. Almost.

I was half-right. This dude did it.

This music montage is GREAT.

"For what it's worth..."/"Oh! That's worth absolutely nothing." --- I think that's the first time I've ever consciously noticed anyone directly respond to 'for what it's worth', and it rocks so hard. Lassiter's disgust is wonderful.

Don't trust him, Henry. You know he's a big fat liar. I can't see his pants right now, but I bet they're on fire.

...Okay, so he wasn't lying. I'm glad, actually. Henry gets screwed over enough.

Singing psych-out! TIM O. I am dying here. (And once again, Roday has a totally brilliant voice.)

I honestly don't know how you read a recap before seeing the episode.

I think this might actually hit my all time favourite eps list. I don't think there's a single thing I can fault it on. I love how much more human they're making Henry this season.

Oh, and is it me, or does one of the writer's have a distracting obsession with lichen?

Mine too! I'd even go so far as to say that, in some ways, this is my favourite episode of the season so far.

Um --- I haven't noticed the other references to lichen, but it wouldn't surprise me if they do?

It was awesome from the appearance of Josh Malina (Jeremy for Sports night for me!) and then they added in Biff! and I squeed a little.

(Fun fact - even though he's always Biff first? I also think of him as Maniac from FMVs of the later Wing Commander games. Which he starred in alongside MArk Hamil.)

And then they used Hungry Like A Wolf and sold the whole episode for me. Fantastic.

Little thing I loved - Lassiter pulling up and jumping out of the car with 'Way to go, partner!' I love the Lassiter/Jules partner!ship. ♥

I actually don't know the actor's real name. I feel bad about this, because I have seen him in many, many roles --- but he is always Biff to me.

The Lassiter/Jules partnership ROCKS. I love how well they work together and that they obviously truly respect and like each other. Also, it tends to bring out Lassiter's human side, which is never a bad thing.

Loved Henry in the opening scene with the little ones.

Whimpering over the trailer for next week.

Loved the Psych Out.

I did too! He ran!

I do not watch the trailers for the next week's episodes. But I have a fair idea of which episode this will be, because I accidentally saw the title.

And then it's the hiatus, which is so not fair.

"Imagine Robert Goulet dressed like Mr. Bean playing the Scarecrow in a summer stock production of the Wizard of Oz dedicated to Tony Randall." ::DIES::

...Okay, so he wasn't lying. I'm glad, actually. Henry gets screwed over enough.

I initially thought he was a Lying McLiarson, too, and was pleasantly surprised that he didn't just hire those kids and a lady to dress up as a nun. For once, doing a good thing resulted in a good thing! I also loved Shawn giving his dad pointers for eliminating the other competitors. ;-)

I can't help but wonder what Tim O thought of that description (or if, in fact, he had a part in constructing it.)

I loved Shawn making sure his trick to get Henry to high-five didn't work. That scene by itself was awesome --- that Henry had noticed all the things Shawn had except for the germaphobe. But then they also added in Shawn doing something relatively nice. I like it when Shawn's a sweetheart. Also, Shawn's soft voice does things to me.
