Ok, if you are following a little this site, you´ll already know Psych is by far one of our favourite shows on TV right now; and we are giving it quite some coverage.
Well, now it´s time to do a list of the nicknames and aliases that Gus and Shawn have on the episodes of the show.
As you fans all know, Shawn usually introduces Burton “Gus” Guster by a different name each time, and sometimes he even changes his own name to an alias or nickname.
Recently we had the chance to participate in an interview with Psych Stars Dule Hill and James Roday, and they talked about Aliases and Nicknames:
Dule Hill: For myself it’s always been the one I think from Season 1, which may have been the first or second episode, where he called me Gus “Silly-Pants” Jackson. You know, I – because when he first threw that out it kind of caught me off guard first of all because I believe that was one that was just off the top of his head. And it cracked me up. I just thought it was a hilarious thing. And, you know, we’re big fans of Stoney Jackson over here Stoney and the Silly-Pants, you know.
James Roday: …kicked it all off. So I think it’s always going to be special for us since everything sort of sprang from that.
They definitely come in the script now but any time we can top what’s there, we don’t hesitate. Everyone’s in on the fun now.
