    I think Shawn looked pretty good in the green shirt.

    This was a pretty good episode; most of the connections Shawn made weren't all that obvious and yet also weren't wildly unrelated. Even down to noticing Lassiter feed a carrot to a horse at the track and making the connection to wanting a pony as a kid.

    Loved the TiVo Season Pass mention, too.

    Good episode, but I had most of it connected the minute they clearly focused on the gambler looking up in the sky after Juan Carlos died.

    Automatic +1 for the episode for the Land of the Lost reference. :D

    I liked seeing current Shawn/Gus meeting their 1987 selves. :cool:

    Yea, me too. And the Land of the Lost reference. And, well just about the whole episode.

    Carrollton,...
    I loved the "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" outtake at the end, too.

    I didn't figure out the main mystery but I did have a hunch early on that Gus was the second spitter.

    I haven't had cable for about a year and a half, so I've only just started catching Psych and I'm very pleased. What a fun show.

    Yeah, any show that assumes the viewer knows about Sleestaks has my vote. BUT aren't some of the references older than the characters? Must be a fun set to work on. I wish the two of them were a little more equally yoked as a team. Dule was fantastic on West Wing and it would be fun to see him do more than just be a strait-man.

    And I LIKED Shawn's green shirt with the pineapples. Where can I get one of THOSE?

    I really thought an Indian casino was going to be involved. I like it when a show is a little surprising.

    There were so many one liners, but of course, I can't remember any of them.

    And I didn't get the Lost World reference. I don't think I've ever watched it.

    Dude...Land of the Lost! Not lost world! :p

    Marshall, Will, and Holly, on a routine expedition,
    Met the greatest earthquake ever known.
    High on the rapids, it struck their tiny raft.
    And plunged them down a thousand feet below
    To the Land of the Lost.

    This show continues to be the shining star of USA -- the quickest comedic hour on TV today. I really would love to see the network push this instead of Monk.

    You know, this show's become one of my favorites. It could be that there's nothing else on right now. But I've grown to enjoy it slightly more than Monk, and that used to be my ultimate favorite show.
