Re: Psych cancelled

This week, every one was telling him frankly that he was a parasite.

Calling him an asshat is suggesting that he has a choice.

He's definitely got undiagnosed issues that should put him in a padded room.

The way things are going, with money being so tight, I can see Sean justifying the murder of people so that he can earn money pinning the crime expertly on other people.

Which is crazy, because if you murder the right person just right at the right time, you can make an enormous amount of money.

(Can you see Shawn teaching a class called "Murder School: How to get away with it!"?)

Mentalist won't make it 8 seasons.
In the interest of full disclosure, I don't watch either show. I was just curious about the Psych finale. But...
1). The Mentalist already has more episodes produced than Psych will have when its series finale airs.
2). The Mentalist is already in Season 6. It is not unreasonable to think they could go two more seasons.

Yeah it has more episodes, it's on a network. It will most likely get canceled this season, I doubt it will make it to 8 seasons... yet Weeds did and that was 5 seasons too many.

Still, I think episode count is more important than season count

Re: Psych cancelled

Well renewal overcoming cancellation is righteous.

Charlie Sheen's "new" show is "half-way" through it's second season.

Season 2 has had 49 episodes so far, after a 10 episode first season.

So 8 times the suits have got together and said to Psych ""Give me a reason not to whack you, ya stoopid gombah?"

Mentalist has only done that 6 times.

The Michael J Fox show was cancelled the other day.

Exactly. Charlie Sheen's show had a 10 episode first season, but a second season pick up of 89-90 more episodes. It was only picked up once because the syndication deal was so amazing. It will not be continuing after the second insanely long season.

Re: Psych cancelled

No third season.

Syndication quota.

Well, that makes perfect sence.

Re: Psych cancelled

No, but it has so many episodes who knows when it will finally end. The ratings are horrible for the show, but the syndication deal so great they will continue pumping out bad episode after bad episode....

Just like his old show.

Re: Psych cancelled

41 left in the season 2 order.

I am watching this show as it airs, and they seem to working around and through a lot of the actors timetables, that sometimes they just invent these crazy excuses for why "X" is not available for "y" amount of time.



Just like how Juliette was gone form Psych this week because she was probably filming Back in the Game.

Did everyone see the Psych Musical a month back?

(Everyone sang, it was hilarious.)

Did they have Ally Sheedy and Anthony Michael Hall in the same episode?

No, no they didn't.

The Psych musical was underwhelming. I was not whelmed.

Re: Psych cancelled

Joss Whedon made it look easy.

Perhaps compare what Psych did here, to the Sanctuary Musical instead?

Re: Psych cancelled

This may be the first official conformation, but it was already pretty much known last year that 8 was going to be the last.

I've been watching since the very first episode 7.5 years (!) ago. Excellent show, though admittedly it started to lose some of its charm over the years.

My thoughts exactly. I was actually looking forward to it, thinking that Psych + musical had the potential to be awesome, but it was not in the least. In fact I gave up on it being any good before the first musical number even ended. The first number was that bad. I must admit though I did get a chuckle out of Henry's refusal to participate. I'd like to hear the behind-the-scenes story behind that. Can Corbin not sing, or did he just not want to?

Re: Psych cancelled

Here's a question that some of you should be able to answer. A couple of weeks ago they had the episode "Remake", Which from what I gather is a remake of an early episode from the show. I didn't get into Psych until asome time in Season 2, so I haven't seen the original episode.

So what was different? The same? between the original and the remake? What was the point in making a remake?

Re: Psych cancelled

I thought that that was just set in season episode one.

I'm sure if I remembered more, we would have found that half the supporting actors who showed up had been murdered or were murderers at some point in the shows relative future.

I'm assuming that that "season one" episode will tie into the final.

I've seen every episode myself, but I don't remember the original at all, even after watching the remake. So I can't help you there. But I found this review that points out some of the similarities and differences between them. One similarity I am aware of though is that the same actor, Michael Weston, portrays the defense attorney Adam Hornstock in both versions.

As for the point, my guess is because it's so gimmicky. Remaking one of its own episodes just sounds like the kind of crazy thing Psych would do.
