Today's blog is about Psych, initially brought into the TVCU via a bunch of USA commercials, it finally earned some more substantial crossover credentials.
I'm not a big fan of this show. I tried it out, but it just wasn't that entertaining to me. But, my like or dislike of a show or movie has nothing to do with what makes a valid inclusion.
So here we go...
1993--PSYCH: FLASHBACK TO THE TEEN YEARS--Shawn often flashes back to his childhood, but this is a short series of flashbacks to his teen years.
July 2006 to present--PSYCH--Shawn is a detective. Gus is his partner. Shawn gets hired to solve crimes by pretending to be a psychic.
July 2006--PSYCH WEBISODES--Extra short tales of Shawn and Gus.
August 2006--USA PROMO--Shawn meets Adrian Monk. Yes, I do include commercials if I can't find anything in it that would contradict the mythology of the actual shows. In this one, they are in a realistic situation where both characters are true to their normal personas.
January 2009--A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO READ--The first of five Psych novels written by William Rabkin.
July 2009--MIND OVER MAGIC--The second Psych novel.
November 2009--USA PROMO--Gus meets Neal Caffrey and Peter Burke.
January 2010--THE CALL OF THE MILD--A Psych novel.
August 2010--A FATAL FRAME OF MIND--A Psych novel.
December 2010--PSYCH--"Dual Spires"--Since I know little about either shows in this crossover, I will turn it over to two of my expert cohorts. Click here to read what both Toby O'Brien and Sean Lee Levin have to say about the Psych/Twin Peaks crossover.
February 2011--MIND-ALTERING MURDER--The final (so far) Psych Novel. All the novels were written by William Radkin.
So that's it.
So now I am starting my hiatus. While my son is visiting for the month of July, I won't be blogging. The rest of the appointed TVCU Crew may add or edit blogs during my absence.
This month wraps up a half a year of the TVCU blog (after decades of false starts that evolved into this blog). In addition to writing new blogs when I get back, I will also start updating the blogs I wrote in the first six months. I know I said I was going to wait until my blog had been going for a year, but that Superman blog is just bugging the Hell out of me. Have a good July, everyone.
(I will still be checking in on Facebook, so feel free to keep the discussions going and I will join in there.)
