    I miss Boston Public! One of the best shows not on dvd.

  2. Andy says:

    Matt, any idea if Cybill came back for any of this next season of Psych? It would be nice to have her back one last time.

  3. Doug H says:

    Cybill does make a living playing the beautiful mother of beautiful younger women ( except of course “beautiful” men like Shawn Spencer)…
