  1. Psych

    Psych is an American detective comedy-drama television series created by Steve Franks and broadcast on USA Network. It is produced by Franks and Tagline Television's Chris Henze & Kelly Kulchak. The series stars James Roday as Shawn Spencer, a young crime consultant for the Santa Barbara Police Department whose "heightened observational skills" and impressive detective instincts allow him to convince people that he solves cases with psychic abilities. The program also stars Dulé Hill as Shawn's best friend and reluctant partner Burton "Gus" Guster, as well as Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's father, Henry, a former officer of the Santa Barbara Police Department. The series airs new episodes in the United States on Wednesdays at 10PM ET/PT, 9PM CST on USA Network. During the second season, an animated segment was added to the series titled "The Big Adventures of Little Shawn and Gus". Psych debuted on Friday, July 7, 2006, immediately following the fifth season premiere of Monk, and continued to be paired with the series until Monk's conclusion on December 4, 2009. It was the highest-rated U.S. basic cable television premiere of 2006. It is currently USA Network's longest-running original series on air. USA renewed the series for a seventh season, to include 16 episodes, on January 10, 2012, and again for an eighth season, to include eight episodes, on December 19, 2012. An additional five scripts for the eighth season were ordered by USA on April 22, 2013, although it is uncertain if they will be produced. Regular cast member Maggie Lawson has been hired as a series regular in ABC's upcoming Back in the Game, casting doubt on her availability for upcoming episodes of Psych and raising suspicion that the eighth season will be the last. Psych began its seventh season on February 27, 2013.

  2. Dorothy Marcic:

    I’ve shared the medical records withtwo psychiatrists and three psych nurses, they all said there’s no proof at all that she was psychotic. She never showed any symptoms of it and nobody ever suspected of it. And if you look at her version of what happened that night, they were arguing, he was abusive and she went into a psychotic state and pulled the trigger. The problem is that they were upstairs and his guns were downstairs. He had a number of weapons because he was a former police officer.
