Psych photos from the expected series finale - includes a notable guest star & some spoilers, big spoilers, but not the biggest spoiler...yet
THIS POST CONTAINS NOTABLE MAJOR SPOILERS FOR FILMING OF "PSYCH SEASON 8". Do not read or view the photos below if you don't want to see or read anything on season 8 prior to seeing it.
I caught up with Psych for more filming from their expected series finale.
This particular day, I was determined to go to the set because I knew a guest star that was going to be there. A very special, very Psych relevant guest star that they clearly wanted in the show at some point...
Ready Psych-o's? Here it comes.
BILLY ZANE will be in an episode of Psych... and not just as a pop culture reference this time.
I dont really know what his role is in the episode. I know there was scenes shot with Billy, Shawn, Gus & Henry either together, or in various combinations, on a trail inside a park in Burnaby.
Later, I found them at a house where Shawn, Gus, Lassie and guest stars Billy Zane & some Acadamy Award Winning Actress by the name of Mira Sorvino did scenes in a house.
I also saw tweets that said Deon Richmond was on set for this episode. Clearly Psych is pulling out all the running gags for their probable series finale.
One of the cooler moments I have had on a Psych set came at the end of the work day. Having gotten James, Dule, Maggie, Kirsten, Corbin & even Steve Franks in my "Psych's Guide To Crimefighting For The Totally Unqualified" (an entertaining read by the way) on previous encounters, I still needed Timothy. So I tweeted at him that I was waiting outside hoping to get my book signed....didn't think he'd even see it in the 1000s of tweets he gets daily. But sure enough, when he left at the end of the day, he walked over to my friend & I and instantly said without hesitation "so which 1 of you is Canadagraphs?" then he signed my book, completing the cast.
Something interesting that was found out during this shoot. Maybe you should sit down for this 1. Some of you fans might not take this news as well.
Gus is moving on up car-wise. In a shocker, the Blueberry is no more. Gus has a new job, and a new company car.
Like many prop cars that shows get, for insurance reasons, the blueberry was crushed. So sadly, no one will be taking it home as the ultimate Psych prop gift. The Blueberry was the 1st notable, Psych specific item I heard about being let go of by the show in their final weeks. The lease on several locations they used, including the office for Psych also happened in the final weeks. With so many iconic parts of the show now gone, does this mean the end for the series?
Even though the USA Network or NBC Universal hasnt said so yet, this show is done. I'm saying it if they wont. Feel free to come here & point & laugh if they bring it back, but when cast leave for other projects and they let go of their most notable locations & props, its done.
Several cast have moved on. Dule Hill has a Broadway role, Corbin Bernsen very publicly stated he wont be back, and of course James Roday said to me in my last encounter with him "since this is the end of the line..." when he was talking to me about all the autographs I got from him over the years and how he wouldn't see me again.
Is it possible for a return of Psych in some form? Maybe. But it will not be any time soon. It will not be another season. it will be a TV movie at most. It will be 3-5 years from now. They will have to wait till they A- Get the OK from NBC Universal/USA Network to do 1, tne B- Have all of the cast available. That isnt coming together in the next year for sure. If there is no TV movie in the next 5 years, then there will never be a return. For now, the show is ending after 8 glorious seasons.
To the cast - thanks for a great show & more or less always being great with myself & other fans at the sets.
To the crew - For the mostpart, I found you all to be really classy, respectful & helpful to myself & fans visiting the set, something that isnt always the case for all shows.
To the creators, directors & writers - You have earned my applause, a lot of applause.
To the fans. All great things must come to an end. But dont worry.... you still have several more months to get there....oh, and I still have a couple more nuggets to post from season 8 filming....so theres that too eventually.
In the mean time, take in some pics from 1 of the last Psych sets I ever encountered.
Psych films scenes for episode 8009 "Shawn & Gus Truck Things Up" with a recurring guest star - NOTABLE SPOILERS
THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NOTABLE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 8009 OF "PSYCH" TENTATIVELY TITLED "SHAWN & GUS TRUCK THINGS UP".
If you do not want to know any spoilers to this episode.... DO NOT CONTINUE READING THIS ARTIVLE OR VIEWING THE PHOTOS!
The 2nd day I was on set for the Food Truck episode. A lot happened.
First, before I got there, my friend texted me & told me "Marla is on set". I instantly deciphered it as "Marlowe" & was hastily getting out there as fast as I could since I needed Kristy on some photos I had with me since the time that I literally missed her by seconds at River Rock Casino during the shooting of Marlowe & Lassies wedding episode.
Sure enough, Kristy Swanson was there. Along with all the guys. James Roday, Timothy Omundson, Dule Hill, Corbin Bernsen were all on set and later in the day Sage Brocklebank aka - Buzz McNab aka Morning Wood aka Magic Mike came in for some scenes.
So right to the big news.... unless you skipped to the photos 1st, in that case, this isn't such a breaking piece of news..... so, as you can tell from the photos below, there is a little Lassie coming soon....realllllly SOON. This time, it isn't in the shape of an adorable beagle.
First scene I saw had Marlowe show up at the food truck court looking for a snack. She tells Shawn & Gus not to tell Lassie shes there, as he hates food trucks. They let her go into their truck & shortly after Henry arrives & the boys get into a conversation with them when Lassie shows up & Shawn & Gus go to cut him off & have a conversation with Lassie.
There was a scene that had Shawn, Gus, Henry, Lassie & Marlowe all inside a food truck as Marlowe seemingly went into labour. The conversation that you could hear between Lassie & almost everyone was quite entertaining. I couldn't see that scene since it was entirely inside the truck, but I heard lots of it. It sounds great. Then came a scene where Shawn tries to get the food truck out of its very confined space to rush to the hospital. Imagine the Austin Powers shuttle cart scene, but slightly less over the top. After that Kristy wrapped her day. So had Corbin.
There was then scenes with Gus, Shawn, Lassie & McNab that included a prop toy baby. At first I thought this was supposed to be in place of a real baby, but realized after a few takes, nope, it was actually supposed to be a toy baby...which is good, when you see how it gets treated by father to be Carlton Lassiter.
Obviously, I only got to see a small portion of the episode, but I was laughing a lot at the takes I saw over the two days.

This was the last Psych set I ever got to photograph or see. I do have a couple more sets to post eventually from another episode, with an even larger spoiler than this bombshell set.
THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE SEASON 7 FINALE OF "PSYCH". Do not continue reading or watching the videos if you do not want to see any possible spoilers.
Back in October, the hit USA Network Crime Procedural comedy Psych was filming their season 7 finale....even though the premiere wouldstill not even air for 4 months.
On the day I caught them in North vancouver, there was a couple short diriving scenes done.
As you have probably already seen from the photos I posted in my blog posts (spoilers inside)
and here http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/6/post/2012/11/this-past-week-psych-spent-halloween-filming-scenes-for-the-season-7-finale-no-spoiler-post.html
Well, here are videos from them shooting.
I apologize for the background sounds on both of them... I frankly dont know whats up with the odd sounds (the clicking of my camera aside.. at least I know what that sound is).
First up... a scene where the Blueberry pulls up to a stop after Henry's truck pulls into the lot beside them.
The second video I wish I had the zoom option on my camera working smoother at the time. Something I learned on this day... when my camera gets reallly wet (which it was really wet that day) Sometimes basic functions dont react immediately...such as zooming out/in.
So here is a video of Henry Spencer driving by with a message for Shawn & Gus (who are off camera for the scene)
Psych films their season 7 fnale - and 1 of the cast has some choice words for 2 others (Spoiler inside)
On Halloween day, I caught the Psych crew & cast out filming on North Vancouver as I previously told you all here http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/6/post/2012/11/this-past-week-psych-spent-halloween-filming-scenes-for-the-season-7-finale-no-spoiler-post.html
In addition to the Shawn & Gus solo scenes, there was a few scenes with a 3rd notable cast member..... HENRY SPENCER!
When I 1st got to the set that day, I saw the blueberry & Henrys truck parked beside each other. Now I have known for a long time Henry was around this year... and thanks to the spoiler killers at USA Network, so does anyone who has seen their promo ad, with Henry standing behind Shawn & Gus.
This was, however, the 1st time I had seen Corbin Bernsen on set since he called my friends and me mistaken about him filming a few months ago when we caught him out at the River Rock Casino filming scenes.
There was a couple scenes Henry was in. 1 where the blueberry was follwing Henrys truck. Then later, the more entertaining scene.
When I first saw the scene being shot, I wasnt even aware it was Corbin I saw, it didnt make sense. The scene was Shawn & Gus leaving a hot dog stand, and their eyes follow a sign going by (off camera... which Corbin himself was carrying...but we couldnt read it at the time). I just thought they woulda had a crew member do such a menial task since it was off camera....but it sure enough was Corbin.
A little later, they turned around and did the filming from the angle of what Shawn & Gus were seeing. In this scene, you see Henry's truck rolling down the street, Henry has his arm out the window & is holding a sign. On the sign, it has simply 2 words "Suck it". Of course, a phrase used often on the show.
They did 3 or 4 takes carrying the sign, then did a couple takes of him not holding the sign but instead making a gun motion with his hand. So it was actually pretty hard for me to get a great shot of him with the sign out the window, but, I managed as good a shot as any of it as you can see below. As for the gun/hand takes, even harder, because of the rain soaked windows & the lighting. I tried playing with the colours a bit to make it more noticable, but its only moderately better.
I will have video of the scene up later on when I have a bit more time, maybe closer to the season start... In the mean time, heres some photos.
