Lassie Gets the 'Psych' Treatment

Is there a more perfect scenario than Lassie having to ask Shawn and Gus for help?!  Needless to say, this episode had me at the set-up and it kept me throughout the hilarious hour.  Of course, Lassie being Lassie, he wasn't able to come out and say that he needed their help or officially hire them to help exonerate him from a murder rap.  No, instead he told them that he was giving them the opportunity to work with him to clear his name.  Riiight.  And Shawn doesn't have feelings for Jules either.  Although, this episode and the premiere last week focused a bit more on the feelings that she has for him.  I like these two and I want them to end up together, but much like another fave law enforcement non-couple/couple Booth and Bones, I'm not ready for them to get together.  This show does a nice job with the chase and the whole "I totally have feelings for him/her, but am completely unaware" concept.  It works so well that I think they could milk it for several seasons (and I hope they do).  Meanwhile, Lassie was stuck sitting in the back seat of Gus's compact company car while at the mercy of a duo too obsessed with Kenny (nay Kenneth) Loggins and "stealth mode."  It all became too much for Lassie when he saw Jules with a new partner.  Suddenly, he's wearing Shawn's clothes instead of his usual suit (does anyone else think that he and How I Met Your Mother's Barney would be total BFFs united in their common love for suits??  Suit up!) and sitting at Shawn's dad's house watching Cops reruns!  Luckily, Shawn stumbled upon Jules's new partner and cracked the case just before said new partner knocked him out.

I was laughing during this entire hour (the check/cable debacle, Shawn's Funyuns discussion, Gus being 75% sure that Lassie is innocent -- "What, that's up from yesterday!" and the two of them presenting their "preliminary questions" to Lassie), but the funniest part of the whole darn episode was the Kenny Loggins bit.  They certainly milked that for most of the hour and it was HILARIOUS!  I almost fell off my couch when Gus asked (very shocked), "Kenny Loggins is in jail???"  And then Shawn started on his diatribe about "The House at Pooh Corner" and "This is it" and it just got funnier and funnier.  Just a classic example how this show can make anything funny! 

Psych airs Friday nights on USA Network. Catch up on this episode and others at hulu.com.

The series contines to be great.

And although this is the 1st time they have cleared Lassie of murder, they helped him at least once before when Lassie had a crisis of confidence and Shawn solved a crime and let Lassie think he did.
