I have repeated my consensus of the Psych TV series over and over again — it is a hilarious buddy comedy, but nothing special beyond that.

(RATING 5/5) This is an abnormal episode because Shawn and Gus are not helping the police department.

You may, or may not, have noticed that the pineapple plays a big role in a lot of Psych‘s promotional materials and you may, or may not, know why.
