Psych season 6 premiere: To Predict and Serve

11 Oct

Psych Fan Day in NYC

Psych-o [sahy-koh] noun: a person, of sane or unstable qualities, who follows the TV show on USA Network, and also happens to be in love with James Roday and Dule Hill. 

I flew to New York in a whirlwind. Well, I actually booked my ticket a week in advance after discovering a little treasure in my email. But my point is, it was a surprise.

So, I won tickets to Psych’s Fan Day season 6 premiere. Debated for a day if I should go. Then decided it’d be seriously silly not to. Commence Psych-o weekend.

More than 500 fans and ticket winners lined up starting at 3  p.m. at the Ziegfeld Theater in Manhattan. I arrived with my friend Sarah Tomoser at 3:30 p.m. and the line was already CRAZY. Down the block and turning the corner kind-of-crazy. (But for the poor souls who showed up later … the line doubled back several times. Unfortunate for them.

As we waited for hours, we thought of deep and meaningful questions (aka funny and something that would get us onstage) to submit to the cast’s Q&A.

I was hoping for a ton of free goodies and I was not disappointed. Psych swag included: pineapple foam finger. Polaroid pictures. t-shirt. popcorn. drinks. bottles covered with Shawn and Gus’s faces.

We sat on the first row of the “balcony” area. Which happened to be next to the isle that James Roday and Maggie Lawson walked through to get to the stage. We yelled. And cheered. (Sarah had a brief exchange with Maggie about her new chic haircut.)

They showed the episode. Then came the hilarious Q&A which you can find on their website. (The audience Q&A I believe is separate from the one shown on TV.) My friend Sarah actually had her question asked! (What episode was the most extensive to creative, either money or time wise?) Steve Franks, the creator, loved it. Apparently season 6’s final episodes were some of the most expensive and time-consuming to produce. She got a free hoodie. = I’m jealous and my inner journalist is frustrated that I didn’t think of a super brilliant question.

(My question was: Psych is notorious for nicknames. Does the cast have any off the set?). By the way, did you know they have Psych toasters? Yes, you can have a pineapple on your toast. And the cast just happened to throw autographed pieces of toast into the audience. Crazy? Yes. What’s more crazy? People were falling all over each other for that toast.

My conclusions: I want to be Dule Hill’s girl. James Roday is suave and mysterious (fun fact: real last name is Rodriguez). And I want Maggie’s haircut.

Season 6 Episode 1

The first episode of season 6 is GLORIOUS. It is the most action-packed, tense, and suspenseful episode they have yet to release. So I hope y’all are ready tomorrow night. (Will Shawn give away that he’s not psychic? Will he get caught sneaking into an ambassador’s house? Will Juliet leave Shawn? Will Lassie kill him?) Tune in at 11 p.m. MTN time to watch it.
