Psych 100th Episode “100 Clues” Advance Review – Fans Will Love This One

Psych 100th episode - 100 Clues

Psych airs its 100th episode, called “100 Clues,” tonight at 10pm on USA Network. As the title suggests, the episode is themed after the 1985 classic film Clue. Going along with the Clue theme, the episode has five possible suspects and fans can vote to decide how the episode will end.

To find out more about the five suspects, visit the Psych vote page and find out how you can vote on the site, Twitter, USA Sync, and on the USA mobile site on your tablet or smartphone (all details are on the Psych site).

TV Equals got an advance copy of the episode, but even I don’t know who the killer will be as it ends just before Shawn reveals who did the dirty deed. What I can tell you is that there is a whole lot of fun stuff packed into the 40-plus minutes.

So now, let’s play another version of my favorite game - How Much Can I Reveal Without Spoiling The Episode!

Many, Many Clues

If you’re a fan of Clue, then I think you’re going to have just as much fun as I did noticing all the different ways that he episode paid homage to the film. Considering the fact that the title mentions 100 clues, it makes me wonder if there are in fact 100 different references. If there are, then I need to watch the film again because I only caught 17 (yes, I counted). Naming them all would of course spoil the episode so I’ll just tell you that you’ll not only see Shawn and Gus (along with the rest of the cast) reenacting some hilarious moments from Clue, you’ll also hear actual dialogue from the film come out of their mouths.

Not a Clue fan? Not a problem!

If you’re worried that this episode will only appeal to Clue fans, you can go ahead and forget that thought right now. This may be a Clue-theme episode, but don’t forget that it is also the 100th episode of Psych. I don’t know how they did it, but in addition to the episode being packed with Clue references, it’s also packed with a ton of Psych references, too. Lots of little things that we’ve all come to love about this show – from “suck iiiiiiit!” to the pineapple (I found it this time!) to not just one, but two separate Shawn and Gus celebration dances – show up in this episode.

Prepare to laugh. A lot.

Psych is a funny show. We all know that. But I am not kidding when I saw I think this episode may be one of the funniest, if not the funniest, episode of the series that I have ever seen. I don’t know if it was because of the extra slapstick element that came from some of the Clue references (for instance, everyone running around the house over and over again in one big group) or what, but it had me in stitches the whole time. In fact, there were times when I laughed so hard that I had to pause the episode so I could let it out and then start it up again so as not to miss anything. Maybe not everyone will agree that it is the funniest episode, but I will be surprised if all fans don’t find it at least somewhat hilarious.

My favorite (non-spoilery) bits..

Shawn and Gus in spandex, and platform boots. That is all.

Getting the chance to see Lassie’s 2007 hair again.

“I bet they have those things in the bathroom that hose off your bum.”

“Gus, don’t be the second time ever I saw your face.”

“I’m sorry my partner has an intense fear of toupees.”

“We split the food of the dead 50/50, that’s always been the deal.”

Shawn tickling Gus with a feather.

Someone mistaking one of Shawn’s ramblings as a reason to start removing their pants.

“I use it to caramelize.” – Trust me, it’s funny when you see it.

The most EPIC Gus girly scream ever.

Lassie interrogating Shawn and Gus.

“The after-party will be in my pants.”

A lot more singing than normal.

Shawn smacking Juliet’s bum.

Alright Psych fans, that’s all I can tell you about the episode without spoiling it for you. Be sure to check it out tonight and vote for your suspect on the Psych site, Twitter, USA Sync, and on the USA mobile site on your tablet or smartphone (all details are on the Psych site).

    Billy Lips was my favourite part of the ep. His delivery was fantastic. As for Shawn and Gus their chocolate dance and licorice ‘alibi’ runaround in front of Lassie were hilarious. I also laughed quite a bit at their attempt to deconstruct Billy’s new song. haha The toupee fear Gus has is so odd, but it was a great set up to that scene where Shawn finds him in one of the secret rooms. oh Gus…

    I’m a little sad we didn’t get to see the Chocolate room, though!

    And poor Curt Smith! Shot and then left alone with a vicious panther? (Though he did have a great moment when he covered Shawn’s mouth and went– Are you Curt Smith? hah)

    Jules’ excitement about the party and surprise at Shawn smacking her bum twice was cute. Though, Shawn didn’t actually “test” her theory… she was suggesting the events that had just happened that night were likely committed by more than one person. The only additional person Shawn covered was whoever killed Melinda in 2007. And if a killer had a gun with them the whole time, why would they use an ice pick to kill? That bugged me quite a bit about the case, though I did enjoy everyone constantly reminding Shawn that Curt was “NOT DEAD” during his wrap ups. hah

    By the way, it’s been a long while since I watched Clue– what was the reference Shawn and Gus were making with the “go home and make love to our wives” line and those expressions?

      I haven’t watched the episode yet but in the move ending in which everyone except Mr. Green (an FBI agent) is the killer, Mr. Green’s last line is that he’s going to go home and make love to his wife, suggesting that his alleged homosexuality was only part of his cover
