Psych: Twelve Episodes That Will Make You HappyHDClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
"Hey Psych Fans, show creator Steve Franks here. When they told me that they wanted me to select my favorite 12 episodes of Psych for iTunes I immediately thought of only the episodes that I wrote. Without any other people. Then I thought that doing that might come across as self-absorbed, so I broadened my criteria and considered the episodes that I wrote WITH other people. While that might help my public perception a bit, it seems to be too little of a gesture (especially after the debacle of the New Yorker piece I wrote last year entitled 'Clever Things I Said To My Cat That Went Unappreciated'). In the end, I decided to just choose the episodes I like best, which, as it turned out, happened to be a lot of the ones that I wrote. So here they are with a short description of each...Twelve Psych Episodes That Will Make You Happy High School Musical Jessica Alba (I added the last part so we could get tagged in a lot more searches... I'm sure you understand, we are a cable show, after all.)"
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoPsych (Pilot)||The Pilot is still one of my favorites. Seeing where all these characters started makes seeing where they've gone all the more worthwhile. It's the only time in the whole series we've ever seen Shawn's apartment. We shot it in Vancouver during snow, so it's fun to watch the breath of the actors as we attempt to play it as summer in Santa Barbara.||1:06:10||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|2||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Spellingg Bee||The Spellingg Bee has my one of my favorite scenes in the run of the show when Shawn takes over for the spellmaster and has to investigate a murder while making up words for the contestants to spell.||43:10||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|3||HDClosed CaptioningVideoFrom the Earth to the Starbucks||From the Earth to the Starbucks was our chance to start to unravel the rough exterior of the Lassiter character. Dule Hill's real-life wife, Nicole Lyn, guests as his longtime crush. Several standout moments occur in the Space Center as Shawn takes a job to investigate the murder of an astronomer. The final scene has a great Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers song "Sleep Like a Baby" played over a sweet little father/son ending.||43:10||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|4||HDClosed CaptioningVideoScary Sherry: Bianca's Toast||John Landis directed Scary Sherry: Bianca's Toast and made our show look like a feature for the first time. It was our first step into horror, which we now try to delve into at least once a season. The things we learned on this episode gave us the ambition to boost the look, the action, the excitement of the show. Maggie Lawson owns this one.||43:10||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|5||HDClosed CaptioningVideoAmerican Duos||Landis also directed American Duos which is the episode that inspires the most heated debate between our fans. Some say it's their favorite episode, others says it's completely ridiculous. I consider both to be compliments. It's a concept James Roday and I had during the pilot and was lot of good fun to make and watch. Tim Curry and Corbin Bernsen in the dinner scene absolutely knock me out every time I watch it. And it's the only time the show has ventured so willingly into satire.||43:08||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|6||HDClosed CaptioningVideoBounty Hunters!||Which led us to Bounty Hunters! Our first action episode. Kevin Sorbo leaping onto speeding cars? What more do you need, really? It also has one of the my favorite endings of any of our episodes over an amazing song "So Here We Are" by Bloc Party."||43:03||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|7||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThere's Something About Mira||There's Something About Mira was the first episode we shot in a far-off location (an hour away) and boasts some of the most beautiful scenery surrounding the equally-pleasing Kerry Washington, who plays Gus' long-lost wife. Dule Hill gets a chance to step into the spotlight for this one.||43:01||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|8||HDClosed CaptioningVideoLights, Camera Homicidio||Lights, Camera, Homicidio was shown on Telemundo the night it premiered (as unlikely as that seemed for us) and is my pick as funniest episode. It also shows our soundstages doubling as the Spanish telenovela lot.||42:55||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|9||HDClosed CaptioningVideoShawn (And Gus) of the Dead||Shawn (and Gus) of the Dead might be my favorite episode of the whole show because it mixes the comedy, drama, action, suspense and quirkiness we do on the show in a very nice balance. It was also the first time I got to direct so nobody had more fun on it than me. The chase through the forest and the scenes trapped in the museum are standouts.||43:02||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|10||HDClosed CaptioningVideoGhosts||Ghosts is the follow-up to that episode, introduces us to Shawn's mom, played by Cybill Shepard, and is directed by Steve Surjik. Some great spooky stuff leads to some wonderful comic reveals and a heartbreaker of an ending.||43:00||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|11||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Greatest Adventure In the History of Basic Cable||The Greatest Adventure in the History of Basic Cable is just perfect execution. Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar of Broken Lizard and featuring Steven Weber as Henry's adventurer-maybe-loser brother and possibly the source of inspiration for Shawn's flights of fancy.||43:05||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|12||HDClosed CaptioningVideoSix Feet Under the Sea||Six Feet Under the Sea is this year's mid-season premiere and is our pure gift to our fans. Speeding boats, wild animals, and a funeral for a rescued sea lion in a tight little mystery with an extended riff on George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez in "Out of Sight." If nothing else, I know they won't be doing that on The Mentalist. Or maybe they will. I hope that's twelve, I've forgotten how to count. I hope you find your way to our show, it's a rewarding little diversion.||43:04||$2.99||View in iTunes|
Consistently Consistent and Fabulously Funny!
I have been watching Psych since its first show and it only gets funnier and better every episode. The cast has a great chemistry and the humor is oustanding. My kids and I laugh out loud every show and they don't even get all the obscure 80's jokes. Listen people, there isn't anything on TV that combines humor, creativity and entertainment as Psych. It's great fun for the whole family to enjoy!
BEST SHOW ON TV
Just stop reading and buy it.
Thank you, Steve.
I don't know if Steve Franks will be seeing this, but I'd still like to say thanks, Steve, for creating such a great show. As long as you continue to demonstrate how willing you are to make fun of yourself, as well as those who blatently rip-off your idea, you'll be aces in my book. I'm sure you're right in saying that The Mentalist won't be doing any riffs on George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. I'm also sure the main character won't mention at some point that he needs to get home so he doesn't miss an episode of Psych. Of course, he should, and he should encourage everyone else to do the same, just like I always do when discussing the best shows on televison. Keep up the great work!
