I made Shawn Spencer’s TOP 24 on MySpace! Sometimes the little things can make your whole day.
Who is Shawn Spencer, and why do I care if he thinks I’m a top friend? WELL… using his “psychic” abilities, Shawn and his best friend Gus solve crimes in Santa Barbara, CA… on the TV Show PSYCH. Yes, Shawn is technically a fictional character (played by James Roday), but he has 2,400 Myspace friends, and I’m topping the list 🙂 (Gus is his TV land best bud, and The Friendly Indians sing the PSYCH theme song).
PSYCH is hands down THE BEST show that you’re probably not watching yet. Last summer, when the major networks turned to re-runs and lame-reality-filler shows (David Hasselhof thinks you have talent, it MUST be true), the USA network debuted PSYCH on Friday nights. I was drawn in 1) it looked pretty funny 2) West Wing was over and Dule Hill was now playing BF Gus 3) Reality TV can rot your brain. What first seemed to be an overly ridiculous story idea turned out to be on of the most light-hearted, interesting, knee-slappin’ hysterical shows on the air. PSYCH is consistently funny, and in a very witty/not forced way. I commended Hill earlier this year about the move to PSYCH… it may not have the glitz & glamor of working on the award winning West Wing, but PSYCH has a loyal following and is genuinely original entertainment.
If you missed last season of PSYCH, you can catch it in re-runs this June on USA Network (it is on Thursdays at 1am however, so set your TiVos). The new season starts on July 13. Get Excited.
