American Duos - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: A man attacks the judge by running out of the shower. When he runs through the shower, a shower curtain is draped over him. For most of the scene it is over his head, but when he is dragging the judge into the shower, the curtain has moved off of his head and is even gone completely in one shot, perhaps to make the actor more visible.


Gus's Dad May Have Killed an Old Guy - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Spencer is on the phone to O'Hara, his iPhone shows the standby screen, not the screen that comes up when you're talking to someone on the phone.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Shawn is brought into his childhood bedroom to investigate Allison's abduction, there is a "Peeping Tom" band poster visible behind him for a few seconds. This was Shawn's bedroom in the 90's, and "Peeping Tom" didn't exist until 2006.

Visible crew/equipment: The scene where Gus is smelling for the first shark and Shawn is 'divining' it. As they round the corner at the dock, a camera and some randoms are visible down the alley for a few seconds. (00:19:00 - 00:23:50)


Bounty Hunters! - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: In the restaurant, Byrd slamms Tancana's face into a burger and mustard/ketchup smears across the left side of his face and nose. In the echo, the condiments are on the opposite side of his face. After Tancan drops down behind the seat and then reappears, most of the condiments have been removed, but the glob on the left side of his nose is lower and more on the top of his nose than it had been before. (Not a change that would have happened from him rubbing it off and missing some.) The blob continues to migrate throughout the rest of the time they are in the car.

Shawn Spencer: I'm Shawn Spenstar and this is by partner, Gus "TT" Showbiz.
Burton 'Gus' Guster: The extra T is for extra talent.

Shawn Interrupted - S6-E6

Trivia: There is a scene where Shawn, Gus, and Vivian are sliding in an open hallway trying to hide from the orderly who is taking Bernie on the elevator to his lobotomy at the mental facility. The scene is a total re enactment of The Breakfast Club movie scene where Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, and Anthony Michael Hall are sliding in an open hallway trying to hide from Dean Paul Gleason when they broke out of detention. Molly Ringwald guest stars in this episode too. (00:34:15)

Psych the Musical - S7-E15

Question: This episode aired after the chief was fired and after Juliet found out Shawn wasn't a psychic, but the chief is in it and Juliet doesn't know he's faking, so was this episode shot before season 7, and just aired after?


Chosen answer: "Psych: The Musical" was supposed to air during the regular season 7 schedule, before Chief Vick is suspended and Jules discovers Shawn's lie, but the network decided to push it back to air as a special episode, sort of as a tie in with the holiday season and a lead in to season 8, which was to begin only a couple of months later.
