One show I don’t talk about nearly enough is USA’s Burn Notice.
It is such a cool, stylish show – sort of a Mcgyver meets The Equalizer with some Bond thrown in the mix. It has edge and attitude to burn. Seriously, I’m talking spies, explosions, makeshift tools, and Bruce Campbell!
The unique characters, fast action scenes, and wry, cynical humor are what make it such an outstanding television series. 6 seasons and running!
Oh, speaking of season 6. It premiers tonight (11/8) 9/8c on USA Network.
To celebrate the return of television bad-assery that’s been missing from your lives for the past couple months, USA is giving away a Burn Notice Party Pack. Here’s what’s up for grabs:

Psych, is an American comedy/drama mystery television series, about a man who works for the Santa Barbra Police Department as their resident psychic. The only hitch is that Shawn Spence (James Roday) isn’t really a psychic, he just relies on his highly tuned sense of observation to solve mysteries. With his best friend Burton “Gus” Guster (Dule Hill) and his father Henry (Corbin Bernson) the series has lasted into it’s 6th season, keen senses and all. It’s one of my favorite shows! It somehow combines youthful thirty-ish banter between buddies with Monk-ish sleuthing. The witty jokes, sharp dialog and endless obscure 80′s references make it a real delight.
So, I have a nerdy giveaway I would love to share with you, surrounding the premier of Psych Season 6.5 on the USA Network, on Leap Day, 2/29. There will be one grand prize winner of a Psych Arcade (pictured below) and the three runner-ups win signed Season 5 Psych DVDs!
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?
Play the Flash game Squirell Assasins (Campaign Mode) from February 26th through 28th. It’s a quick, fun game of lawn catapulting invading Squirrel Assassins.
Twitpic your high score to @Nerdbastards.com and #PsychArcade
Check back on Febuary 29th for the winners
Winners will be contacted for mailing information.
In the meantime, be sure to catch up on the past few seasons on Hulu – it’s a fun, light-hearted show that is a hoot to watch!
Before I get to talking about Psych, I must apologize to all you fans waiting on Comic-Con coverage from Mrs. Nerd Bastards and I. I’m not one for excuses, but holyshit were we unprepared for today. I was stuck in Ballroom 20 all day listening to every panel in the room. I had to or else I would have to go to the back of the line outside. There was a line of 5000+ waiting to get into the ballroom for anyone of the panels. Only by staying in my seat did I lay claim to the panels of interest, those being Psych, Game of Thrones and Dexter. I had to sit thru Burn Notice: Fall of Sam Axe (which seeing Bruce Campbell is always a pleasure), Covert Affairs (ugh), Ringer (blah), and TV Guide’s Fan Choice (Matt Smith/Doctor Who was on this panel, so at least that was MINT). Being stuck in this room prevented me from reporting other matters. Like FOX’s presentation of Prometheus with Ridley Scott and the Napoleon Dynamite Animated Series. Or, Mike Judge’s presentation of the premier of Beavis and Butthead. In addition, my lap top died. No computer, no reporting. Only now that I am back in my hotel can I sit back and bring to you a play-by-play of the some of the cons most anticipated panels.

So, Psych comes back to Comic-Con. Their 3rd year. What goes down? Well, stories and laughs from the whole cast and it’s creators (James Roday– Sean Spencer, Dulé Hill– Burton Guster, Timothy Omundson– Detective Lassiter, Maggie Lawson– Juliet, Corbin Bernsen– Henry Spencer, Kirsten Nelson– Cheif Vick, Kurt Fuller– Woody the coroner and Steve Franks– creator and executive producer, Chris Henze– exec. producer and Kelly Kulchak– exec. producer) …and pineapples of course.
CLICK ON THRU for a transcribed, word-for-word account of the 2011 Psych panel. *Note: this panel took place on Thurs 7/21 at 12:30. Sorry for the delay. Also, I think this may may be my last full on transcription. It takes too much time and I dunno if you even care to read it all anyway. Do you like it this way, or would you be cool with just an overview?
