PW00 – Introduction – Psych
This episode is our introduction to the series. We’ll discuss what drew us to the series for the first time, the cast and what impact the show has had on us as individuals and on the TV culture. Next week we will start an episode-by-episode watching of the series and we’d love to have you join us on the long journey! We’ll include details at the end of the show for how you can get in touch with us to send in feedback or to volunteer as a guest!
Segment 1: Let’s start by sharing what drew us to the series for the first time…
Segment 2: Let’s now talk about the show itself. The show aired from 2006-2014. It was created by Steve Franks.
The cast is really fantastic, and 10 years ago when the show premiered many of them were not well known. Several have since gone on to other roles.
James Roday as Shawn Spencer
Dule Hill as Burton ‘Gus’ Guster II
Maggie Lawson as Juliet O’Hara
Timothy Omundson as Detective Carlton Lassiter
Corbin Bernsen as Henry Spencer, Jr.
Kirsten Nelson as Chief Karen Vick
Segment 3: Finally, let’s talk about the lasting effect the show has had on us and on the tv culture.
