  • “Psych’s loose-lipped co-lead” cracked me up. He does reveal everything via twitter. I remember when he busted a major secret about the musical that was supposed to be a secret. Gotta love Dule.

    • If I had to bet, my wager would be the musical episode for her appearance. She has the pipes.

  • The musical episode was filmed a long time ago. It’s set Somewhere in season 7. It’s definitely a season 8 episode.

    • I couldn’t agree more, I watch this and I was so confused I had to watch it again to see if I missed something, but nope, this has to be the dumbest movie plot I have ever heard. I would even dare say worse than Twilight

    • I know right. I love a bad B film, especially if its scifi-y. This Sharknado looks truly awful, but I’m really looking forward to it. Horrible scifi films are the best.

  • Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!|
