How do I Survive Graduate School? Psych!

Psych Season Begins Tonight
Shawn Spencer and Burton “Gus” Guster, “Psych”


One of the ways I survive graduate school is by not studying all the time. I watch NFL Football, college football, and some television shows to undo the stress-filled life of academia. Psych and Bones are my two favorite non-reality television shows.

Psych season 7 premieres tonight! Thank you Shawn and Gus for helping me survive graduate school.

I like the characters, the writing, and the constant references to things from the 80s and 90s. Some episodes make me laugh so hard I cry. Overall the adventures of Shawn and Gus are a psychedelicious flavor of great writing and great casting. This show helps me keep sane while enduring graduate school.

For the February 15th Psych Slumber Party I voted for the following 7 episodes as my favorites:

  • Episode 111: Scary Sherry
  • Episode 215: Lights, Camera… Homicido
  • Episode 315: Tuesday the 17th
  • Episode 512: Dual Spires
  • Episode 603: This Episode Sucks
  • Episode 610: Indiana Shawn
  • Episode 602: Last Night Gus

My favorite episode is from Season 6: Last Night Gus. The story echoes the theme from the movie “The Hangover,” and it was very fun. The guys wake up in Shawn’s office and cannot remember what happened from the night before, so they go on a quest finding clues about what happened last night.

In the season 6 finale… Shawn’s dad was shot. Now as season 7 begins how will this event impact Shawn? This Psych-O and all the pineapples of the world are eagerly waiting!

You know that’s right.

  1. Exactly the right strategy. If you can do grad school while maintaining some semblance of a life, you have surely won! Semblance can be a mere sliver, but hold on to it.

    I speak from … [sigh] … experience. Hold on to it! You’re doing the right thing!

    1. Yeah… if I did not do something to relax my head would explode. Laughter is the best medicine to prevent head explosions according to 4 out of 5 doctors.
