Naturally, they had so much fun doing the Indiana Jones homage/spoof that they wanted to talk about it… and anything else that came up [these guys are some kinda gregarious!].

The mid-season finale of Psych [Wednesday, USA, 10/9C] begins with an e-mail alerting Shawn and Gus to a ‘cinnamon festival’ in the small [so small it’s in parentheses on the computer map they check] town of Dual Spires. The guys immediately set off [they do love their cinnamon] – and find themselves in the strangest little town they’ve ever visited. Then, a plastic-wrapped dead girl turns up. The dead girl is Paula Merral, niece of the owners of The Sawmill Café – and we cut to the opening credits and… Julee Cruise singing an Angelo Badalamenti-like arrangement of the Psych theme.

Over the last few years, Tim Matheson, best known for playing Eric in the original Animal House, has become a fixture on USA Network shows. Besides directing episodes of Psych, Burn Notice, White Collar and Covert Affairs [where he directed the pilot, thus setting the tone for the series], Matheson has also guest starred as arrogant bank robber Edward “The Architect” Walker on White Collar and recurred as the charmingly dangerous [or is it dangerously charming?] ex-spy/freelance mercenary, Larry Sizemore over five episodes [so far] on Burn Notice. Little known fact: Matheson is big on Asian films!
I had the great good fortune to take part in a teleconference Q&A session with the former voice of Jonny Quest [yes, Matheson has done some legendary work] where, because of an unusually small turnout, I was able to ask more than usual couple of questions.
