I’m of two minds on my recommendation for this week. I mean, it’s a show I watched in its entirety back in the day. It’s a show that I’ve watched in reruns many times. It’s also a show that, when I’ve watched it in the last couple of years, it doesn’t resonate like it used to. For whatever reason, I feel like the shelf life of the show has proven itself short. A few years ago I would have enthusiastically suggested you check out this show and to give it a binge. Now, I am still here recommending it, spoiler alert, but not enthusiastically. I wonder what I will be thinking in a couple years. Anyway, the show in question is Psych.
You may know Psych as one of those “blue sky” shows from USA back in the day. You know, Burn Notice, Royal Pains, White Collar, and so on. This was before they got serious with Mr. Robot, which is a slog, and made Suits a serious show. Some of those peppy, poppy blue sky shows were mediocre, but I loved Pysch. I watched it as it aired, and I really enjoyed it. It wasn’t a “cool” show, but it was funny and fun. The way I liked to put it was that when an episode was over I tended to have a smile on my face, which is an endorsement.
