Review - Psych Season 5 Episode 7 Ferry Tale

If my recollection is correct, I haven't reviewed Psych in a while, so I should probably put in a few words about the latest episode and the season in general.

In its fifth season, Psych is still Psych. Amusing, maybe a few laughs, nothing hard-hitting, no character development, predictable cases--expendable summer television. The show has a geyser of untapped potential that will probably never be touched. If the writers haven't changed it up by now, it's unlikely they ever will. And that's fine for me and most viewers. I'll just be disappointed when the writers miss an opportunity to take the reins and do something brave.

"Ferry Tale" took a small step off the beaten path, offering up a hostage crisis in the first half before diving into the usual investigation. The twist with Craig getting greedy caught me by surprise, as he was good guy the entire episode.

Also, it looks we have a new Young Shawn actor. (What's with those freckles?) I'm guessing the old actor grew up, so he had to be replaced. It's a shame though; I really liked him.

Score: 8.5/10
