Tonight “Psych” is ushering in its fourth season with a guest appearance by Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Glory). In celebration of “Psych” and all its pineapple-y goodness, I’ve decided to confess this—whenever I see a little blue car, I imagine that Shawn and Gus, “Psych’s” dynamic duo, are driving it. Sick, I know, but playing can-you-spot-the-little-blue-car on road trips is mucho fun.
Those who watch the show know that Shawn and Gus can often be seen traveling around Santa Barbara (actually Canada, since that is where the show is filmed) in Gus’s work car, which Shawn renamed the “Psychmobile.” He also gave it some extra dubs, which were later removed by a horrified Gus. The vehicle in question appears to be a 4-door Toyota Echo, but I’m thinking a Chevy Aveo looks pretty darn close, too. If it’s little and it’s blue and it’s on the road, it’s the Psychmobile.
Now, if I just kept my discoveries to myself, I’m sure my friends would be fine with my little obsession. However, as the season premiere edges ever closer, I’m in a near “Psych”-frenzy ready to scream out to any LBC (that’s “little blue car”) I see. See, that’s just not normal. And don’t even get me started on pineapples, which are not only nature’s perfect fruit, but they also make unique presents for housewarmings, birthdays, bah mitzvahs, and that hard-to-shop-for somebody special.
Dear friends, if you think it’s bad now, just wait until I finally get Season 3 on DVD. You just wait. In fact, I’m gonna add a bunch of “Psych” merch to my Christmas list right now.
