Psych and Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Alright. Psych is my absolute favourite series for many, many reasons. It was there in my good days, in my bad days. Comfort food absolute.

I recently and finally started Brooklyn Nine-Nine and I absolutely love it as well. But I think part of it is how much of Shawn Spencer I see in Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg).

Anyone else see it? It's really striking to me. If you like either of these series I really highly recommend checking out the other one.

I didn't watch Psych when it aired so don't have the associated nostalgia, but I kind of found Spencer a bit too perfect and it got a bit tiresome to watch, eventually dropped it when the Spencer-O'Hara flirting gets serious.

      I get what you mean about Spencer being too perfect. I really appreciate that in Nine-Nine they actually often let the characters make mistakes, and things don't always turn out well.

    I was just thinking about how similar they are the other day. Also highly recommend both to anybody interested in either.

      There's one more movie being filmed right now but personally I hope they stop before it gets bad. I would be heartbroken if psych overstays its welcome.
