Psych – Let’s Doo Wop it Again

Ahh, finally an episode that I completely loved! I’ve had some issues with the newest episodes (namely with Gus’ attitude about the ring, Shawn’s weird jokes that aren’t really funny, and the fact that Henry hasn’t been in it enough) but last week’s episode gave me some hope and this weeks didn’t fail to raise the bar for these episodes (so now I have much higher hopes for the rest of the season, hopefully it continues to improve!) The reappearance of Jaleel White as Gus’ old friend Tony was fun to watch, he’s incredibly funny and plays off of Gus almost as well as Shawn. The other guest stars were just as good but I did get a little annoyed with Lassie’s girlfriend Marlowe (she was just a little too syrupy sweet this time)
But the best part of this episode had to be Gus, for a change he got to run the investigation a little bit (and annoy Lassie) and it was his thinking that saved the day (or anyway, allowed Lassie and Juliet to burst into the room at the right time to arrest the bad guy after Shawn had already taken him down)
I just have to say something about the singing in this episode, I love how good these guys sound together! Shawn tends to overdo it a little but if you close your eyes and don’t actually watch him then it sounds really good and Gus is just terrific!
I do wonder how many times they plan on incorporating (sometimes badly) the prison where Marlowe is, they could just release her on early parole if they really want her to be in it so much, although I’m not sure if I would like that or not, Lassie is a little goofy around her but on the other hand it’s really nice to see him happy (because he seriously doesn’t smile enough)
There’s a lot more I could say about this episode but I think I would rather go watch the rerun 😉

Leverage – season 4, episode 18

Ahhhhhh, what’s to be said about this one?
Well, to start, here are my first thoughts (in order) that I had (and/or remember) while watching the episode:

1. Parker should never dye her hair brown!!! (but she could cut it short, that was a cute look for her)

2. Hmm, this is a little intense (note: by the end I was thinking this was waaay intense)

3. I want a taser cane 😉

4. Nate is SCARY!!!!!!!

I enjoyed the hodgepodge of familiar characters (with the possible exception of Maggie) but I almost wish Sterling had been in it! He and “Artie” could have had a reunion 🙂 Speaking of which, wasn’t the subtle reference to WH13 cute? The Leverage writer’s have certainly enjoyed throwing in a ton of references in the past two episodes (but you don’t really need that many)
As usual, the best part was Eliot and Hardison, I love those two!!! Especially Hardison’s line about finally knowing how Eliot must feel, I would have enjoyed it too much if he had actually punched that guy though, so I’m glad he didn’t (save that for next time)
And for a bit of good news? After two great episodes, I’m hooked again! Which is nice since there will be a new season in the summer 🙂

Sanctuary


I would really like this show if Tesla was in more of them (and by the way whatever happened to Kate?) I don’t know why but I can’t get into the storyline with Henry (and I like Henry too, so must be the girlfriend) Will has always been iffy for me, he seems to nice and yet, he really isn’t, so?….
The main redeeming quality for this show (other than the rare appearances of my favorite vampire) would have to be Amanda Tapping’s masterful performances as Dr. Helen Magnus, I love how she adapts to every situation so elegantly (there really isn’t any other word for it) And I enjoy her banter with the other characters.
Plots you say? Well they are plenty complicated enough this season and I think there is a good chance that this will be a well-rounded season with some good twists to keep us guessing.
