A novice sleuth is hired by the Police after he cons them into thinking he has psychic powers which help solve crimes. With the assistance of his reluctant best friend, the duo take on a series of complicated cases.
James Roday (Shawn Spencer) and Maggie Lawson (Juliet O'Hara) started dating during the filming of season one. Their relationship lasted seven years.
How can you tell that someone's a compulsive liar? I mean, assuming that their pants aren't on fire.
We see Shawn constantly ask detectives Lassiter and/or O'Hara to put out APB's (All Points Bulletins) or BOLOs (Be On the Look Out) to bring suspects and witnesses in. When found the Santa Barbra Police brings them to the station for Shawn and the detective's to interview even though it's pretty clear they didn't want to come. If there is no probable cause for an arrest or an active arrest warrant, the police can't make you go anywhere against your will. Once in a while, a wealthy or educated person will assert this and ask a lawyer to be present but this is rare.
Each time a guest performer sings the theme song, they sing the entire song as opposed the shorter version in normal episodes.
As of 2018, unlike the ION channel reruns which left the episodes uncut, the Hallmark Channel censors some of the language and suggestive humor despite it being mild.
