    It's not only laugh-out-loud-until-soda-squirts-out-of-your-nose funny, but it's also perfectly cast.
  2. "Psych" is one of those happy collisions of an intelligent script and an appealing cast.

    As with Monk, the crime is largely an afterthought. Psych similarly serves up murder as a fluffy soufflé, but what a tasty way to end the week.
  4. Painless at worst, and mostly better than that.

    "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.

    A second-rate knockoff of what's not quite a first-rate fabrication itself.

    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

    Best Show on Cable. Don't listen to the negative reviews. They are a web of LIES!

    THE best show on TV. It mixes cop dramas with comedies.
