Not really about White Collar

After White Collar was over, I kept the TV on USA to watch Psych, which I haven't watched since it started. Shawn unfortunately hits my squick buttons in a big way. But I was charmed by Gus wearing cowboy PJs.

I was rewarded with one of the best fans-as-characters-of-shows dialogs ever. Shawn has been kidnapped and shot by bad guys and is currently trapped in the bed of a speeding truck as Gus and the chick detective, and his dad and whassname, try to rescue him. When Gus and Chick come up next to him in their little car, he makes like he's going to jump, and he yells to Gus, "You're just like Vin Diesel!"

Gus yells back, "If I'm Vin Diesel, that makes [chick detective] Michelle Rodriguez and you Paul Walker!"

Shawn: "I really don't want to be Paul Walker. Even for one day."

Gus: "Then you can be Lucas Black from Tokyo Drift! Only we wouldn't be in the movie with you."

Shawn: "That's so weird. OK, I'll be Paul Walker."


Most of the moments in WC tonight I loved, but a lot of it hit my squick buttons. Still, I have a one word review: JUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNE. (and also, she loves the bad boys!!)

June and El need to spend time together. I'm sure June's social circle could double El's business.

(omg El laughing at Peter best thing ever)

I know! June and El could bond over loving the bad but good boys.

So, do you know what happened to the line from the teaser/commercials, with Peter shouting "man down!" ? I was so very much looking forward to that!

I was looking forward to that too! I have no idea at all! I mean, there doesn't even seem to be a place in this episode it could have been cut from.

Perhaps Jeff Eastin will post to his twitter account about it. ;)

DAMMIT I'm getting tired of using the same two WC icons - and *neither* has El in it. Must rectify.

*g* I'm just off to watch White Collar now. But I wanted to point out, as someone else who doesn't really watch Psych on a regular basis? It is AWESOME for the fanservice. Earlier in the same ep, that whole bit with Mentalist spoilers in Shawn's browser history? PURE GOLD.

ps. That's WALTER in your mood icon. ILU.

I know -- the Mentalist spoiler thing had me laughing my ass off. That was totes brilliant.

A friend of mine is always telling me to watch Psych for the fannish shoutouts, but I confess I've let my fear of awkward social things with Shawn get the better of me. I think I need to just record it, and then FF through parts that cause me pain, or else have my friend vet the eps for me that I should watch. That might work. OTOH, I LOVE Psych vids, possibly because it's not triggering my squick so much.

I miss Walter SO MUCH. I heard they are talking about remaking LFN as a series (jesus, WTF?) but not only is that a terrible idea but without Walter, it would be nothing!

Record and skip the squick! It's worth it!

I know nothing about this show, but thanks for the transcription, because that's really funny!
