Great Scott! Psych has reached episode number 100!
And how better to celebrate the milestone for the oft-’80s-referencing, wacky USA Network show than to salute a wacky ’80s movie? Psych’s 100th episode, which airs tonight, fully embraces its Clue theme, complete with guest stars plucked right from the 1985 film: Lesley Ann Warren (Clue’s Miss Scarlet), Martin Mull (Colonel Mustard), and Christopher Lloyd (Professor Plum).
In Psych’s nod to the cult classic, Shawn and Gus are invited to a mysterious party at a historic Santa Barbara mansion. Not long after they arrive and meet their fellow guests, there’s a deadly crime to solve, and five suspects emerge: the Butler, the Groupie, the Manager, the Author, and the Host.
The Clue theme is a good fit for Psych, not just because the show has mystery-solving and crime-fighting at its core, but because the comedy of each is very similar: farcical, frenetic, somehow pulling off a combo of being both delightfully over-the-top and packed with some solid deadpanning.
