    Hmmm, was there a holiday I didn't know about. I'm kind of surprised nobody has started a thread about this or Monk.

    Anyway, I liked this episode much more than last week's. Last week seemed like it was built around one line. This week it was funny to see Shaun and Lassiter competing to come up with how the guy died.

    The out-takes at the end were very funny too.

    Very amusing. Shaun being even more shocked than anybody else when his dinosaur theory turned out to be true was priceless.

    But did I miss an explanation for how the paleontologist knew to dig on that particular farm?

    See, that's funny, I thought this one was worse than last week. For one thing, the mystery was obvious way too early for my taste: duh, why else would a guy not want anyone to dig on his farm. Then they have to have Corbin Bernsen "remember" the hit you over the head clue on top of it. Shawn didn't even try to pretend he was a psychic by the end.

    The palentologist was "following information about a fossil farm". No explanation why it led there.

    Yeah, I agree with MitchO. This episode was a step down from last week's season premiere.

    And the guest directors keep coming - this episode was directed by actor/director Tim Matheson.

    I was kinda hoping we could all agree to just forget this episode existed.

    See, that's what I thought about last week's episode. Different tastes for everyone I guess.

    I liked this one more than the season premiere.

    Back to it's roots, Shaun "seeing" things like the bite marks, the shoes, the unnatached gate hinge,
    and remembering minute details like the tic-tac-toe map with it's single O.
    Then the details with the intervention guy, even convinced a skeptical psychologist of his psychic powers.

    He missed a lot of what he shouldn't have, like the bulldozer tracks to the one hole and not the others, the missing tools.

    Still not up to par with season one, but still quite watchable.

    I didn't see any out-takes at the end, and I watched it through the beginning of whatever was on next.

    They're getting back to what Psych was last season. That first episode was so bizarrely bad. They're back to 75% now.

    I caught two outtakes before my TiVo stopped recording. The first was Shaun having fun inside the grade-school dinosaur. The second was the police chief cracking up in the morgue while trying to do lines opposite the dinosaur head.

    I'm pretty sure they put the outtakes on the USA network's website.

    Jules: "Detective Lassiter is literally on fire."
    Sean: "What kind of fire are we talking about? Michael Jackson in the Pepsi commercial fire? Or misusing the word 'literally' fire?"

    :up: :up: :up:

    David Cross has a great bit on that on his standup CD Shut Up, You F****** Baby!.

    As he says, “When you misuse the word ‘literally,’ you’re f****** it up so bad that you’re using it in the exact opposite way it was intended and you should stop using it forever until you figure it out.”

    Now if we could just get people to start saying "figuratively" when they mean "literally" in the wrong way.

    "Uninformed exaggeration makes me cry. Every time I hear some, I literally die."
    When Sean answered Jules, I said "thank you" to the TV. Best line in the episode easily.
