Tread Perilously – ‘Psych: Dual Spires’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Psych‘s “Dual Spires”

Tread Perilously flips the paradigm for June with a month of Tread Safely. And to start: the curious episode of Psych called “Dual Spires.”

Shawn and Gus receive an invitation to enjoy the Dual Spire Cinnamon Festival, but a day in the woods somewhere north of Santa Barbara feasting on hot cider and cinnamon pie turns into a mystery when young Paula Merral is found dead. Wrapped in plastic. Soon, it becomes clear all is not as it appears as town secrets are exposed, Shawn keeps his relationship with Juliet quiet, and everything in Dual Spires feels strangely familiar.

Erik and Justin delight in all the Twin Peaks references. Justin reveals his history with the show. For Erik, it’s only his second episode. The pair once again wonder why Dana Ashbrook never got another high-profile series. See also: guest star Sheryl Lee. The monkey bread conspiracy is exposed. The riff on the theme song is examined, as is Gus’s reaction to the citizens of Dual Spires. The presence of Robin Lively is welcome, even if Justin wishes another Twin Peaks was on screen. Justin reveals the time he ran for school office on the “Sex Dwarf” ticket and that he’s still mad at Shawn for one Psych plot point.
