Per the cabler’s official description of Elwes’ latest guest spot (which is just too Brit-tastic not to include), the “always brilliant chap… proves to be a well of mystery as he weaves through enthralling kerfuffles, chock full of daft chaps, codswallop and smashing twists and turns that’ll leave your knickers in a knot.”

The O.B. (original Buffy, of course) Kristy Swanson is also slated to return to Psych as Marlowe.

    MORE CARY ELWES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Love Despereaux. :-)

  2. Meghan says:

    It’s silly how pleased I am by this news. Despereaux!

    • Britta Unfiltered says:

      This is weird, but my reaction was exactly the same. “Oh my gosh, yes!!! Should I be this excited about that? Because I am really excited!” It is good news, I love Cary Elwes on that show. And I am still waiting for them to do some really funny Princess Bride joke. I see no reason why they couldn’t bring in Wallace Shawn as a character for the same episode.

  3. lyn says:

    Great news about Cary on Psych. Now if they would just tone down Gus’ Birmingham Brown schtick, I’d be content.
    Terrific news about NPH on the Tony’s, too. I hope he brings Matt Bomer or Sean hayes on.

  4. Alan says:

    brilliant news, i cant wait to see more of shawns man crush on him. also that episode description is quite possibly the greatest thing ive ever read. good to hear we are getting more marlowe as well, she brings out a really funny side to lassie that i just cant get enough of.
    good to hear the organisers of the tony awards can see a good thing when they have it, they should just make neil the permanent host because nobody can top him. make him duet with matt bomer this time it would be hilarious.

  5. 4theloveoffilm says:

    “Brit-tastic” indeed!

  6. april-ann says:

    Well well well…Billy Clyde Tuggle. Along with him, I’d love to see an appearance by Jewel. (I know that’s asking for too much!)

  7. Romi says:

    Love the Despereaux episodes! Yay.

  8. A says:

    Seriously hope Psych doesn’t end next season.

  9. gabby says:

    Despereaux. YES YES YES!!!!!!! I love him! So excited!

  10. Dee says:

    Glad about Boston’s Finest but…………. any news on Monday Mornings? Slow start but the show really grabbed me. Unfortunately I have a feeling it’s doomed.

  11. BTM says:

    Billy Clyde! Yeek! Wow!

  12. Regal says:

    Does anyone else feel like they should just name NPH the permanent Tony’s host already? This makes what- 3 years in a row?

  13. bobbie says:

    DOUBLE YAY!!!! :) :) :) Cary Elwes AND SEASON 8!!!! Totally wonderful! :) :)

  14. mia says:

    more Cary Elwes AND Kristy Swanson?!!?!?! YAYYYAYYYAYYYY!!!!!!!!!

  15. Bobbijo says:

    Ya know this is not right I just found out AMC is back but why can’t you put it on soap net that’s what its for I thought not repeats of the 80s show 90210

  16. Delia says:

    Wait…what? I thought the UK Being Human had been canceled.

  17. Megan says:

    Excited about Elwes and Swanson returning; not so excited about Maggie Lawson’s show getting picked up. Season 8 will probably be the last and she’ll only be in 5 episodes. :(

  18. Dharma says:

    Despereaux returns. That’s great. When I found this, I was like: “Yeah! Yes! Alright! The greatest art thief there ever lived returns for more mischief and shenanigans! Thank the great lord that art in heaven! The Canadian shall once again be united with Shawn and his black par— Wait a minute. He’s dead!” I’m not sure what’s gonna happen, but I’m excited to find out. Love that Canadian! And, I believe, he loves me. You may be “dead”, but you’ll never be done. The chance to die doesn’t come very often. I say you grasp that chance by the throat, punch around a bit, and maybe drop it out a window. Then, my dear friend, go and grab that chance and embrace. Don’t live like you’re dieing, live like you’re dead. You’ll be happy… Some day. Some way. But that day and way will come, so wait, and enjoy being dead while doing it.
