Who knew the Sammy the Seagull mascot costume from season six’s Deadman’s Curveball would be available for sale to the public at the Psych studio sale? Someone snapped that up early on. But the skunk costume remained until I mentioned to one of the security guys that it hadn’t been sold yet. He arranged a quick break and that was that. I’d have been satisfied with a Santa Barbara Seabirds jersey but a man who looked like he could have been one of the baseball player extras in Vancouver’s Nat Bailey stadium wasn’t letting go. He kindly let me photograph it and his SBPD cap though. As did a fan with her Blackapella jacket find. After striking out on Seabirds [...]
Psych wrapped eight seasons of filming the adventures of Shawn “Psychic” Spencer and his BFF Burton “Gus” Guster (Dule Hill) early on Saturday morning, August 11th. Followed by the Psych Song, season 8 wrap party that night. A month later, here’s the next marker in the end of a show: the studio sale. Let’s hope James Roday’s season 8 cowboy costume . . . And Dule Hill’s season 8 Harry Potter gown are among the costumes on sale. Psych will be missed here.
Psych returned to Leg in Boot Square in south False Creek on Tuesday to film more scenes of its Food Truck episode, after spending two days there last week. Shawn and Gus (James Roday and Dule Hill) are now proprietors of their own Mash & Grab food truck in a bid to solve the murder of the much-missed Macho Tachos food truck owner. For the first time in the filming of Psych, I saw Lassie’s beloved Marlowe (Kristy Swanson) on set. She seemed to be helping out at the Mash & Grab. Then Shawn’s Dad Henry (Corbin Bernsen) climbed on board too which made for one crowded food truck. Lassie (Timothy Omundson) was around as well but in his blue [...]
Rounding the seawall at south False Creek in Vancouver last Wednesday morning, I could hear high-pitched squealing from inside a ring of food trucks — Gangsta Wraps, In the Vegan-ing, Meat and Mrs. Jones, The Kaboom Box and Macho Tacos — at Leg in Boot Square. It made me laugh because this had to be Psych’s Food Truck episode, an episode I had not expected to see after it lost the season eight fan episode contest. Producers must love #DeliciousFlavor too. Synopsis: When the well-known owner of a beloved Santa Barbara food truck is mysteriously murdered, Shawn and Gus, fans of delicious flavor, are determined to solve the crime as only they can. They go undercover as proprietors of the [...]
Photos by Larry/@BastardSonVan. “Suuuuuuuckkk iiiittt” in song? Last month fans lined up for hours in San Diego to attend the World Premiere of Psych: The Musical (#PsychTheMusical) which was filmed mainly in Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre and will air this winter on the USA Network. Cast arrived in Oscar Mayer Weinermobiles and it just went Psych-O from there. A local fan Larry, who’d caught some scenes from the filming of the musical in Deer Lake Park in Burnaby, was one of the 3,000 lucky ones at Comic-Con to see the screening and the hijinks from creator/showrunner Steve Franks, producers Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak and cast James Roday, Dule Hill, Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson, Kirsten Nelson and Corbin Bernsen.

Psych creator/showrunner Steve Franks is in Vancouver to direct what is expected to be the season 8 finale (possibly series finale). From the photo he tweeted last night, it’s no longer a secret that Maggie Lawson has found time from her new sitcom to return to film scenes for this episode. Pity the Psych cast doesn’t get along (joke) ….. Corbin Bernsen, Timothy Omudson, Steve Franks, James Roday, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson and Dule Hill. Psych is filming its season finale out of order, like it has done in past seasons here. Shooting of at least two more episodes (including the James Roday-directed fan-picked episode Dream Therapy) should extend Psych filming in Vancouver to around August 23rd.
Psych creator/showrunner Steve Franks directed a big scene in front of the historic yellow condo complex Kensington Place in Vancouver’s West End today. Here he is talking with lead actor James Roday, aka Shawn Spencer, below. During filming, crew had two big scrims and five production assistants with umbrellas blocking views of the scene, even from the other side of Beach Avenue where fans stood. This isn’t Psych style but it’s completely understandable for a pivotal scene in what could be the series finale. Earlier, Steve Franks discussed the scenes with Dule Hill and James Roday, who are holding their scripts.

James Roday is on Twitter. Let me repeat. James Roday is on Twitter. Psych showrunner Steve Franks is on Twitter too. Psych-Os chose Dream Therapy for the fan episode. Synopsis: From acclaimed director, James Roday (Mr. Yin Presents…Heeeeere’s Lassie), comes a new vision in terror: “Nightmare on State Street”! An exhausted Gus enters dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors and nothing is ever again what it seems… In dreams, no one can hear you scream… no matter how high pitched and lady-like you sound. Dule Hill previewed a [...]
Psych’s seventh episode of season eight is packed with guest stars. Tom Arnold plays paranormal police consultant Garth Mayers who comes to Santa Barbara with his ghost sidekick Bernie to appear on a panel at the Cutting Edge Consultants Convention at Santa Barbara University.

So that was Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino filming Psych as a Santa Barbara Police Department detective last Thursday afternoon at Terra Pita Place in east Vancouver. According to TV Line, she’s the new head detective Betsy Brannigan and a mix of sweet and badass. In other words: “a scrapbooking, cat loving, crime-fighting machine.” Sounds like a good fit for the Psych gang.
