Why You Should Be Watching Psych, My Favorite TV Show

Psych, is first and foremost my favorite TV show. I say that often when I talk about TV shows that I recommend on here, but this is one that is my actual all time favorite. Just like the great Veronica Mars and Firefly, USA's Psych is a show that ended completely out of nowhere for fans but is now getting a film to give it the proper send off we all wanted. Which is great to hear due to the fact that when its cancellation was announced after their musical episode, I couldn't bring myself to watch the end of the last season (it's not over if I don't see it).

What exactly is this show that I am talking about? In a simple explanation it's kind of like Sherlock Holmes. In a more specific explanation though, it is about Shawn Spencer, a fake psychic, that works for the Santa Barbara Police Department with his best friend Gus and the crazy/impossible cases they solve together.

By the way, yes that is the "I can fix that" guy from Holes.

One of the reasons, I love this show so much is due to the fact that for being a crime show, it always stays pretty positive and comedic with its interesting stories each episode. It showed that a mystery doesn't always have to be serious and dramatic (i.e. Criminal Minds or Law and Order).

Not to mention there are so many themed episodes that pay homages to the things we all love in pop culture like: Vampires,

Alfred Hitchcock Movies,

Kung Fu films,

and as mentioned before musicals!

Not to mention they had a couple horror themed episodes that kind of freaked me out a bit, in a good way though because who doesn't like to get scared every now and then?
Who can guess what movie they are referencing here?

In general it's just a great show that you should absolutely watch! It's usually on the Ion channel and you can find it on Hulu. Not to mention that there will be a new movie coming out in December with Zachary Levi (Flynn Rider/Chuck) as the villain.

On a final note, you may become a bit obsessed with pineapples after this show. Mainly due to the fact that there is one hidden in almost every episode.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
