    It's not only laugh-out-loud-until-soda-squirts-out-of-your-nose funny, but it's also perfectly cast.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    "Psych" is one of those happy collisions of an intelligent script and an appealing cast.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    If you like "Monk," you'll probably love this show, which may actually be even more enjoyable.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Granted, the premise is a stretch. But the gimmick allows for some clever comic jibes while creating some useful dramatic tension between Shawn and the cops, Shawn and his father, and Shawn and his best friend.

  • Ray Richmond

    It takes itself seriously pretty much not at all, which is precisely what we want at 10 p.m. on a summer Friday.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    The lighthearted "Psych" charms even as it duplicates the structure and tone of "Monk."

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Charlie McCollum

    As is the case of "Monk'' at its best, ["Psych"] isn't as much about the crime mysteries as it is a vehicle for lighthearted fun.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    As with Monk, the crime is largely an afterthought. Psych similarly serves up murder as a fluffy soufflé, but what a tasty way to end the week.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    There are holes to fill, though, before this show gets up to "Monk" level. What's encouraging is that it starts solidly and has a chance to find itself.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Amy Finnerty

    The writers deploy the savant protagonist's gift so cleverly in moving the plot along, we wonder why they can't lend more nuance to the characters.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    Can you enjoy a show without liking the main character? Psych puts that unnecessary challenge to viewers.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    Painless at worst, and mostly better than that.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    "Psych" isn't nearly as much fun as it ought to be, offering a breezy but not particularly captivating twist on a very well-worn buddy formula.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    It feels more like a programming move than a creative endeavor.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Better show title? Monk for Morons.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    Inventive one minute and ploddingly formulaic the next.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Nancy Franklin

    Roday doesn’t quite have the chops to back up his Carreyisms. Shawn is a first-draft version of Jason Lee’s title character in "My Name Is Earl"--a lovable goof, but with little ability to gain traction in your heart.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    Unlike Monk, a gently comic character coping with mental illness, Roday's just an overgrown kid. [10 Jul 2006, p.39]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    A second-rate knockoff of what's not quite a first-rate fabrication itself.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Psych is a one-trick pony that quickly deteriorates into a rather humdrum mystery once the novelty of watching Spencer fake his psychic revelations wears off.
