First aired: 2011
Psych is a favourite series of my better half’s and I must admit it is one that I really enjoy too, though I don’t watch it with the same regularity. This episode was the third of season 6 and it was when the series did the, apparently, mandatory vampire episode.
The show itself centres around Shawn Spencer (James Roday), a man with heightened observational skills and a gut instinct for detection and his best friend and business partner Gus (Dulé Hill). Shawn pretends to be a psychic, as the police thought he knew too much and might be a suspect, and the tagline on the DVD set sums it up, “fake psychic, real detectives.” Psych is good at throwing geek orientated trivia and references in and so I will try and point out much that is there and said references actually starts with the opening of the episode as the Smashing Pumpkins’ “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” plays with the lyrics, “The world is a vampire, sent to drain”.

Enjoyable stuff though. 7 out of 10.
