Psych

James Roday and Dule Hill (formerly of the West Wing) are awesome in this! As imdb.com says, "A novice sleuth (Roday) is hired by the police after he cons them into thinking he has psychic powers that help solve crimes. With this assistance of his reluctant best friend (Hill) the duo take on a series of complicated cases." At the end of each episode, the actors do short pieces, usually some silly song and dance number. You can tell these two actors are a perfect match. I've liked Dule Hill since his part as Charlie, the President's personal assistant on the West Wing ("You know when you told me not to wake you unless the building was on fire?"). I would say this isn't quite as well written as Veronica Mars but it's close. I might have to look into other Steve Franks ventures. Big Daddy didn't do it for me, but perhaps future things.
Speaking of the West Wing and series as well written as Veronica Mars, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip will be starting soon. We saw the pilot this weekend. This is going to be yet another masterpiece by Aaron Sorkin. Matthew Perry (Friends) and Bradley Whitford (West Wing) work perfectly together and no Sorkin series would be complete without Felicity Huffman, who makes a brief appearance in the pilot, OR Josh Molina who I'm sure will show up sooner or later.

So, in this golden age of TV when there's just too many good shows to watch, make sure these two are on your list. Psych will be in rerun mode until January, but Studio 60 is just about to start. Oh, and if by some dumb luck you haven't discovered Veronica Mars yet, what are you waiting for? It's the best thing since Sorkin left The West Wing. Oh and then there's The Office and Boondocks. Just too much good comedy for TV. Nice after so long without ANY decent sit-coms.

Psych is pretty rocking. Dule: drama, comedy, poker. I have decided he will be playing me in the biopic. Back in January, and they better pick up where they left off--singing "I'll Make Love To You".
