“Back to the Basics” (Psych: Lock, Stock, Some Smoking Barrels, and Burton Guster’s Goblet of Fire)

Psych is back! This is awesome! Wednesday, I watched the Psych premiere. In case you couldn’t read the full title, it’s called “Lock, Stock, Some Smoking Barrels, and Burton Guster’s Goblet of Fire.” I have been waiting so long for the new season of Psych to come out, and it finally happened! Hurrah!

Shawn and Gus travel to London for a special case for INTERPOL (the people on the DVD warning screens). There, INTERPOL tasks Shawn to pose as a getaway driver to unmask a crew of thieves, trying to pull off the job of a lifetime. Of course, doing so is a bit harder when the Harry Potter Con is in town, Gus makes a terrible demolitions expert, and Pierre Despereaux seems to be the head of INTERPOL.

This is probably one of my favorite episodes of all of Psych. It doesn’t surpass Last Night Gus (which will always be the best) but it gets close. Very close. The episode was funny, mysterious, and action packed. It had a lot of Harry Potter references too, as well as Despereaux. If the rest of the season is just as good as this, I would be very happy. 9 out of 10.
