Favorite Television Reruns - Psych

No matter how many times I watch the reruns, I can't get enough of USA's Psych. The conceit of the show is that the main character pretends to be a psychic to get work, but he's really just an excellent detective. Of course, most of the main characters of the show know (or pretty much know) that he's faking, but it adds a fun layer to what's already one of the best procedural crime shows on cable.
Although Psych is usually built around a "crime of the week" structure, the real fun of the show is just watching stars Shawn and Gus play off one another. The two have a comic chemistry that just pops off the screen. The comedy often reaches a fever pitch as the two quip, bicker, and pratfall through what would otherwise be a fairly somber police investigation.
USA has done an excellent job of creating a clever, engaging comedy that keep audiences coming back for more. Although the plots occasionally straddle the line between creative and ridiculous, Psych is just too much fun to let pass you by.
