I wasn't a fan of this show when it first appeared. The lead character was just too much of a jerk for me, although I liked all of the actors. But it's kinda of grown on me. I'll still watch a new NUMBERS over a new PSYCH any Friday, but I'm not longer overtly hostile. I'm actually curious about the Christmas episode coming up this Friday, especially to learn the history of the Christmas pineapple.
I've actually started to get hooked on this show a little bit. Bought season 1 and 2 on dvd. Its really funny. I love all the pop culture references. In the episode from season one that I just watched, the female detective, O'Hare I think her name is, says that she doesn't know what to get Lassiter for his birthday. She goes to her captain for help for a birthday gift and her captain tells her that, that's her (O'Hare's) problem. He's her partner. She should know him better than anyone. Little comments like that make me think of CI and smile.
It's in no way a true comparison to CI. If you can get past that.... Accept the levity and not say, 'oh that would never happen in a real police station.....' then its a really cute show. It's not a one or the other type of thing. I like both shows for different reasons.

PSYCH returns with a new season tonight (January 27, 2010) at 10pm(EST) on USA.
I've loved the ads for this show, particularly the one with the cast lipsynching "Private Eyes". And I've gotten really fond of this show. It's very funny and smart, and I'm particularly drawn to Timothy Olyphant's performance as Detective Lasseter--"Lassie". It's a brilliant take on a comic foil.
He's a verb! I watched at 1:00 a.m. after working inventory so my recall is a little fuzzy. Spence and Gus are caught sneaking onto an Army base and when they face the Major General, he's tough on them. One of them says something about soap and a towel and Gus looks at Spence and says, "I don't want to be D'Onofrio'd." Obviously a nod to Full Metal Jacket.
