Psych: The Best Running Jokes On The Series

If I had to rank shows solely for their level of chaotic good and comedic genius, Psych would come pretty close to securing that top spot. The series about a fake psychic who infiltrates the ranks of the Santa Barbara Police Department with his spastic and overly dramatic, but typically spot on, fake psychic visions lasted for a hilarious 8 season run and spurred on three TV movies. The entire Psych franchise is like one big inside joke that fans share with the characters, but as for the absolute best of the series’ running gags? You can find the top 5 jokes that recur throughout the series here.

Review | ‘Seagull’ at UCSB

Ah, Seagull, how do we love thee? It’s time once again to count the ways. Anton Chekhov’s Seagull remains the quintessential modern play, by turns funny and profound, absurd and unbearably sad. Dwelling on the question of what theater is versus what it should be, Seagull features a quartet of creative characters: two women who act and two men who write. They live through generational conflict over the nature and purpose of drama, yet the story never loses sight of the emotional stakes of their struggles. Friends and family are every bit as vivid and real as this core group, and each character lives passionately onstage.
