Psych is an American television comedy-drama aired on the USA Network. It made its debut on Friday, July 7, 2006. Primary filming of the show takes place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Viewers with a keen eye may notice that in every episode a pineapple appears in frame.
The title of the show refers to the character Shawn Spencer. His is not psychic; he simply has an astonishing capability of noting very small details often missed by investigators at a crime scene. His talent is so impressive that the police, somewhat grudgingly, seek out his assistance with tough cases.
Along for the ride is Shawn's straight arrow best friend, Gus. Gus has a normal job as a pharmaceutical representative. While he often pretends to be disinterested in Shawn's endeavors, he finds himself deeply invested in them anyway. Best friends since childhood, Shawn and Gus share a camaraderie that makes them seem more like brothers instead of friends.
The quirky show found itself a success when it premiered with more than 6 million viewers, making it the highest rated scripted show ever to debut on a cable network. Numerous critics have also roundly hailed Psych as fun, charming and intelligent. The show was nominated for an Emmy in 2010 in the Outstanding Music Composition for a Series category. Also nominated in 2009 for an Emmy in the Best Actor in a Comedy category was the star of the show, James Roday. The show was recently renewed for another season consisting of 16 episodes.
