Back to the ultra-nonsensical, but still a pretty good episode. Standard Psych. It'll be tough to top last week, though.

Yet another guest star. I wonder how much they spend on guest stars. It's amazing how young TKK still looks. (I had to wikipedia him and couldn't believe he's 49.)

Yep, Standard Psych. Nothing great, but still very funny. Dule Hill does some great deadpan expressions.

Ralph Macchio should bottle up whatever youth formula he takes. Dude could still pass for a college student.

Pretty funny episode. Loved the Top Gun stuff.

Was hoping for more Karate Kid references though. At least a Crane stance.

I was laughing every time Black Goose tried to do a Michael Winslow noise and failed.

This is a fun show (current season... first time watcher). I love all the 80's references. Was it always like that?

Yes, the 80s references have always been a big part of this show.

"You couldn't beat me on the field so now you have to beat me off."
"You may want to rephrase that."

Isnt the villain from Karate kid also in great shape? He appeared as a young ski patrol member in Hot Tub Time Machine, looked like a college kid.

Yes, it has. Loved the episode were Gus was being called Bud from the Cosby Show. Also, Mrs. Huxable is his Mom on the show.

With the 80s references, sometimes you can tell that the writing staff might be a little older than the characters are supposed to be.

That's great. I did catch an ep years ago by now where they were investigating a supposed haunting in a college sorority.

The lights went out and they disappeared once the lights came back on. Next scene shows them running to the car crying in fright. I could not stop laughing.

edit: I found it btw. http://www.tv.com/psych/scary-sherry...1/summary.html

Amazon VOD'd it just for fun.

Good episode, but felt that once again Shawn and Gus were acting a little bit too stupid. The constant remarks when they were in the Chiefs office was a bit odd since they do work for her.
