By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
We've been with fake psychic Shawn Spencer and his long-suffering buddy Burton Guster for five years, but this hilarious mystery-comedy shows no signs of slowing down. "Psych Season 5" has some new additions to the plot -- mainly in Shawn's love life -- but most of the time it's the usual whirl of bizarre crimes and quirky solutions.

Ever since Henry was put in charge of police consultants, work has been scarce. So Shawn (James Roday) elbows his way into the case of a Chinese diplomat's missing daughter... and ends up mired in the Triads, martial-arts, and a very unusual romance. And that was actually the NORMAL case.

As the season goes on, Shawn and Gus must deal with alien abductions, a professional profiler, a gang of prison escapees, partner-swapping, gigolo deaths, a pair of retired cops, a spy who's been framed, a dead body in a haunted house, an art thief determined to do one last job, a framed polar bear, and a stint at the police academy. Finally, Shawn and Gus do battle with Mr. Yin one last time, over the life of a college student -- and see his true face.

Best parts of the season: the boys take a trip to "Dual Spires" (Twin Peaks in all but name); and after Shawn botches an important case, he has a "It's a Wonderful Life" experience where a grouchy Tony Cox shows him what Santa Barbara would be like if he hadn't returned.

It's entirely possibly that "Psych Season 5" is, if not the best season so far, then certainly one of the best. Fortunately creator Steve Franks is sticking to the old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," and this season doesn't deviate from what works -- there's still lots of comedy, spoofery, silly dialogue ("That would mean we're at war with the machines!") and enjoyable mysteries.

The only negative thing I can write about Psych is that the idiot "powers that be" cancelled this amazing show.In a world of troubles,this show allowed you to escape for awhile,providing mystery,and tons of humour.Other than a few episodes(that were rather serious) throughout the show's run,Psych ws able to bring a lot of laughter into my home.I will truly miss watching new episodes of this smartly written show.I would strongly recommend collecting all seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! March 23 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first two seasons of this show were slow and a little difficult to stay interested but the Gus and Shawn combo kept me interested. I didn't even like James Roday for the role of Shawn at first. I felt it was a bit off, not sure why but as the show matured I really found myself really enjoying his acting. After 8 seasons and watching the musical, no one on this planet could replace James Roday for this role. Gus played by Dulé Hill was my favorite character. His need for food, his sympathy crying and or his "scared" reactions were priceless. Put the two of them together and the show was unique and enjoyable.

I could go in to detail about everyone from Timothy Omundson who played Lassiter, Maggie Lawson who played Juliet and the Chief of police Karen played by Kirsten Nelson and Shawn's dad Henry played by Corbin Bernsen who rocked the father role and throughout the show provided Shawn with valuable life lessons that would help him as he grew up.

The hand to the head or the singing of "Suck it" or their jumping around in excitement over some cases and Shawn's key phrase you'll notice often "I've heard it both ways" made it so fun to watch.

I "marathoned" the show after watching 2 seasons on Netflix and couldn't stop. Not a fan of Musicals and I even watched that. Since then I've been buying up the 8 seasons, musical, Halloween special and the book off Amazon, so i'll probably copy and paste this review on each season.

Hands down my favorite show and highly recommend it! Already re-watching it again with the dvd's i've ordered because I wanted to see the special features and gag reels.

It's entirely possibly that "Psych Season 5" is, if not the best season so far, then certainly one of the best. Fortunately creator Steve Franks is sticking to the old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," and this season doesn't deviate from what works -- there's still lots of comedy, spoofery, silly dialogue ("That would mean we're at war with the machines!") and enjoyable mysteries.

The writers deftly juggle the funny-sounding plot twists (nunchuk-wielding nerd! Cinnamon festival!), and cram it with endless pop culture references, from Michael Jackson to Percy Jackson, Twin Peaks to "Disaster Movie." But the best aspect of "Psych" continues to be its kooky dialogue ("What are you guys, UFO chasers?" "Nothing as ridiculous as that. We're psychic detectives").

But this season has a startling development in Shawn's love life. After four-and-a-half seasons of dancing around Shawn and Juliet's mutual attraction, they finally quit messing around. Don't worry -- the romance takes a backseat to the mysteries. The focus is still on Shawn and Gus's strong friendship, and Hill and Roday are still brilliant at depicting the weird, wacky and wild.

And the supporting cast still does brilliant work -- Maggie Lawson's Juliet struggles with the aftermath of her near-death experience, and Timothy Ormundson's Lassiter acquires a new hobby. Corbin Bernson's Henry is still a fun, hard-nosed curmudgeon, but his workplace conflicts with Shawn are too rare. Step it up!

"Psych Season 5" is just more of the stuff we know and love -- mystery/comedy with a quirky pop-culture streak, and hint of romance here and there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great comeback year Dec 24 2010
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
We've enjoyed Psych since the first episode. I'm sure you know the backstory. A policeman's son who was trained to be observant during his youth notices a few clues on TV coverage of a crime scene. When he phones in his tips, he makes himself a person of interest in the case. To dodge becoming a full-fledged suspect, he makes up a story about being psychic, and the show is born.

For five years we've followed the merry adventures of Shawn and Gus as they catch murderers, taunt "Lassie", ogle girls, and drop pop culture references that at times go well beyond their ages. LOL

I thought that seasons three and four arguably had become a little stale. Not so stale that we didn't still enjoy and laugh at the shows, but they at least weren't as surprising in the mysteries and clever dialogue as when the show was brand new. Perhaps Shawn's antics when he went into a fake psychic episode had begun to wear thin. I think the creative forces behind the show also came to that conclusion, as in season five Shawn is more disposed to calmly putting his fingers to his temple to report a "psychic clue", rather than launch into hysterical dialogue and action.

Whatever the case, the show came roaring back in season five with some of the very best episodes of the entire series. Highlights:

"Extradition II", with Cary Elwes as the suave and super skilled thief Pierre Despereaux, was inspired.

"In Plain Fright" puts Shawn and Gus at odds with virtually everyone when Shawn sees a murder on a Halloween ride at the local amusement park, but the absence of the body hinders his desire to investigate and to call in backup.

"Viagra Falls", where Shawn and Gus alternately team up with and contend with two retired detectives when a closed case regains life, is a hilarious take on what happens when a set of active "buddy cops" get along in years.

"Shawn 2.0" introduces a brilliant criminal profiler with skills that rival, and possibly exceed, Shawn's own.

"Dual Spires" has a mysterious message drawing Shawn and Gus to a small town decidedly off the beaten path. The parallel to Twin Peaks will leave you laughing for most of the episode.

"We'd Like to Thank the Academy" has Shawn and Gus being sent to the Police Academy to learn correct police procedures. They immediately get their instructor (a older and nice looking Ralph Macchio) put on suspension, and dredge up an amusing Top Gun moment when Juliet is then put in charge of the class.

"Yin 3 in 2D", while funny in the normal Psych way, is also chilling as they once again are faced with a battle of wits with the brilliant clue leaving serial killer, Yin.

In this season, we are also treated to a couple of the periodic alternate theme song variations, each of which is clever and funny. The closing credit outtakes also seem to be a cut above in season five, cracking us up every week.

All seasons of this series are highly recommended.

My wife and I love Psych, we love the witty banter of Shawn and Gus and the interactions of all the rest of the cast. After a gripping Season 4 finale, we loved this lighthearted, hilarious return of Psych. We very much look forward to Season 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars I predict another funny and fun season of "Psych" Dec 26 2011
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The fifth season of "Psych" continues to be creative and very funny. Although I've always felt that the mysteries are a bit predictable, it's the fun of hearing Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) quip their way to their conclusion as to who and why the bad guys (or gals) did what they did.

With the fifth season Shawn's dad (Corbin Bernsen)is brought back to the force part time as a consultant and he isn't going to hire his son's detective agency at the drop of a hat like in the past. Shawn must earn the opportunity again. Shawn also has competition for Juliet (Maggie Lawson)the wealthy "profiler" Declan (Nestor Carbonell from "Lost"). It's another witty, fun season.

The fifth season has a fun parody of "Twin Peaks" entitled "Dual Spires".

The DVD set has a nice looking transfer of the show (although I'm a bit perplexed as to why this show hasn't shown up on Blu-ray yet since it is shot in and transferred to DVD in high def). Colors are strong throughout and detail quite nice.

Special features We get deleted scenes, a gag reel, video/audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes feature commentary.

All sixteen episodes are presented on four discs with english subtitles. Recommended.
