Dear Santa, (scratch that) Dear Shawn and Gus, thank you for letting me open one of my gifts early this season. There is nothing like knowing a gift is coming for three years and then not having to wait until Christmas morning to rip it open and revel in its greatness.

As all Psych-Os know, "Psych," the television series, is one of the most entertaining shows that we, unfortunately, had to say goodbye to in 2014 after eight seasons. The show was nominated 31 times and won five awards during that run. I knew in my heart that creator Steve Franks and crew couldn’t stay away forever.

Thankfully, I was correct and Thursday night (Dec. 7), you delivered. Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a 100 percent rating, if I could, I would give it a 200.

Picking up isn’t hard to do

“Psych: The Movie” found us right back where the series left off, with all the characters moving on to San Francisco to continue their crime solving. The gut-busting, almost slapstick comedy, was back in full force.

It is refreshing to watch an ensemble that works seamlessly together as if you are one. There is no doubt in my mind, that you all are a family. Which reminds me, I sent you all Christmas cards. I hope to get one in return.

'Come on son'

The chemistry between the characters Shawn (James Roday) and his best friend and cohort Gus (Dule’ Hill) is undeniable.

The one-liners flow like the warm chocolatey ooze in the middle of a lava cake.

Rounding out the cast with Corbin Bernsen, Maggie Lawson, Kristen Nelson, and Kurt Fuller, creator Steve Franks had the vision and makings of on-screen perfection. When the movie started I was excited to see that all the characters returned, including the iconic pineapple and John Cena, even if he only appeared in the remaining few minutes.

Lassie, Lassie, Lassie

I was heartbroken to hear about Timothy Omundson suffering a stroke earlier this year. I know he is vital to "Psych" and its family, so when Juliet (Maggie Lawson) called Timothy’s character, Lassie, on her cell phone seeking advice, I brought out the Kleenex. It was a touching moment that I know reassured Psych-Os around the world.

Without question, all of us wish only the best and a speedy recovery to our beloved Lassie.

Christmas comes once a year

So, you guys, including James, Dule’, Steve, cast, and Usa Network know Christmas comes every year. And without a doubt, I will be expecting to see another movie under my tree. If you can work it out, a return of the full TV series would unquestionably make my Christmas for many years to come.

With love

This doesn’t need to be said. To all of you of "Psych" greatness, we, your fans, send you holiday cheer, a sincere thank-you, and much love. We hope to see you all again soon.
