36 Chambers – The Legendary Journeys: Execution to the max!

January 28, 2014

Top thirty crime procedurals, #2: Psych

Filed under: Our Favorites, Television and/or Movies — Tony Demchak @ 9:01 am

IMDB link.

Basic premise: How to con the police into being a cop without all of that training (or carrying a gun).

Why it’s here: I hate some of the new portmanteaus the English language has invented. I especially hate anything with the word “bro”. But there is no better term to describe the relationship between Shawn and Gus than “bromance.” It is the core of the show, and it is what makes this show the absolute best television program on basic cable. Hell, it does “Twin Peaks” better in its parody episode than Twin Peaks did. It is the very finest program the USA network has ever come up with.

Why it’s not higher: Because something has to be #2? If I had to nitpick, the show borders on the edge of too flippant at times. Still, it’s kind of the point, isn’t it?
