    It's not only laugh-out-loud-until-soda-squirts-out-of-your-nose funny, but it's also perfectly cast.

    If you like "Monk," you'll probably love this show, which may actually be even more enjoyable.
  3. It takes itself seriously pretty much not at all, which is precisely what we want at 10 p.m. on a summer Friday.

    Can you enjoy a show without liking the main character? Psych puts that unnecessary challenge to viewers.

    "Psych" isn't nearly as much fun as it ought to be, offering a breezy but not particularly captivating twist on a very well-worn buddy formula.

    Better show title? Monk for Morons.

    Psych is a one-trick pony that quickly deteriorates into a rather humdrum mystery once the novelty of watching Spencer fake his psychic revelations wears off.

    Perfect show! Sarcastically hilarious! The way Roday and Hill work together just crack me up too! I couldn't WAIT for the first season Perfect show! Sarcastically hilarious! The way Roday and Hill work together just crack me up too! I couldn't WAIT for the first season to come out, and now I've got it! Funnier than Monk, in my opinion, but then again, I am a sarcastic person. That's why it appeals to me more than Monk. Expand

    How could you hate a show of this caliber? I've watched all 6 seasons at least 6 times through! The inside jokes are unbearably funny and theHow could you hate a show of this caliber? I've watched all 6 seasons at least 6 times through! The inside jokes are unbearably funny and the way the cast gets along is amazing. A lot of these old reviews compare it to Monk, I was never that kid growing up (when monk/psyche were still back to back) who picked one or the other. I did grow fonder to psych as it was more lively and had better jokes. The immaturity of the characters adds to the appeal of the show even more. Expand
