Say hello to the new young Shawn Spencer. Yes, the previous Shawn — played by Liam James — is no more, simply because Liam is growing up and has a tougher time pulling off 1990 Shawn. Corbin Bernsen made mention that this was going to happen, when I spoke to him at the San Diego Comic-Con this year. I’m not sure who it is that’s playing young Shawn now, but so far I liked Liam James better.
As for this episode, all I have to say really is that one of the things I like most about Psych is their ever-growing list of guest stars. I always love seeing Chi McBride, and he played his role so well in this episode. I had a feeling he’d wind up turning on Shawn and Gus, when they mentioned an accomplice, but the twist in there threw me, and it worked out very well.
Two other notes:
Next week looks like an awesome episode: Shawn 2.0!
