EW is reporting some really good news for fans of Psych and Twin Peaks. It appears the show may do another themed episode in which they pay homage to the David Lynch series.
“Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to do some kind of revisiting of the episode. I know James [Roday] is thinking about it,” Dulé Hill told EW last Saturday at EW’s pre-SAG party. “I know he and Steve [Franks, creator and executive producer] had talked about it. Hopefully we can make it happen.”
The December episode followed Shawn and Gus as they solve a teenage girl’s murder in an isolated village after its annual cinnamon festival goes awry. Seven of the original Twin Peaks cast members had guest roles in the episode, which was replete with Peaks references: Owls, “damn fine” diner food, anagrammed character names, and a host of more subtle nods for fans of the original series.
I thought the first one was fantastic. I will admit I didn’t get all the references the first watch through. I remembered Twin Peaks from when I was a kid, but didn’t remember much about it. After watching the first Twin Peaks inspired episode I went and watched the entire series. I then went back and watched Psych again and found it to be absolutely brilliant. I really hope they do it again, after all, pop culture references and parodies are really what makes Psych the great show it is.
