Psych: The Musical Preview: We Rank the Show’s Best Musical Moments

by Lauren Piester

Get ready, Psychos.

It’s time to trade in The Sound of Music for the Sound of Suck It, and Doctor Who for some Doctor Whaaaat because the true television event of the season—the thing we’ve waited seven seasons for—is Psych: The Musical, airing this Sunday at 9 p.m. on USA.

If you were lucky like us and got to see a screening at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, we’re sure you’ll agree that this two-hour musical movie extravaganza is pretty much the best two-hour musical movie extravaganza it could possibly be, complete with guest stars, callbacks, cameos and one glorious man-to-man tango.

The episode follows Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) as they try to track down a playwright named Z, played by Rent’s Anthony Rapp, who has escaped from the mental hospital he was placed in after allegedly trapping a critic inside a theater and then burning the theater down. In order to find Z, the two faux-detectives have to team up with a dangerous villain from Shawn’s past.
