‘Psych’ Out

So, I’m not sure if you’ve caught this show on the USA Network yet this summer, but it definitely ranks high on the Bogus Top Ten.

This show follows Shawn Spencer, a photographic memory ‘psychic’, as he uses his powers of observation to solve crimes and sucker the police into thinking he’s a real psychic.

I was somewhat doubtful when I first saw the previews for the show.  I thought it was a cheap rip-off of another of my favorite shows, Monk, and considered not watching it.  However, as any TV connoisseur would, I gave the show a slot in my Tivo and the obligatory first viewing.

Man, am I glad I didn’t miss out.

And neither should you.
