What I'm Watching: Psych (Season Premiere)

Psych: Season 2, Episode 1 "American Duos" (B-)

There is no denying that the dialogue is witty and the communication between the cast members, particularly the stellar duo James Roday and Dule Hill, is extremely sharp. Regardless, the plot here is simply preposterous and it does not even play as well as last season's similarly ridiculous season finale "Scary Sherry". Timothy Omundson, fresh off his sure-to-continue stint as Constantino on "Jericho", seems to be taking a backseat to the rest of the cast, which is really too bad as he can be really funny (and dramatically great, as evidenced by "Jericho"). Guest stars Tim Curry and Gina Gershon are not memorable in a good way. There are some great characters and ideas to work with here, but this show does not always utilize its assets to the best of their ability.
