    “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.

  2. Amber says:

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

  3. epicuriouserin says:

    Are you blanking kidding me with Sharknado?!

    • Josh says:

      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

  4. Angela says:

    Seriously. ‘Sharknado’. What is this I don’t even?

  5. Dude says:

    i want a confirmation about Psych’s 8th year, i have enjoyed the ride and would like the journey to keep going, i think it will leave

  6. dean says:

    The people complaing about sharnado cleary don’t know a B movies purpose

    • liz says:

      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.

  7. Dude says:

    Sharknado looks like its one of the worst films which means syfy achieved their goal, i will be watching

  8. nannarpite says:

    That’s nice.

    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!|
