Synopsis

Edward Baxter was a successful psychiatrist, beloved by his many patients—until he was framed for murder. Now on the run with an assumed identity and a suspicious new wife, his luck is running out. Edward seeks help from Dr. Robert Smith, a fellow psychiatrist and a man with inner demons of his own. When Edward's meeting with Dr. Smith goes wildly awry and leaves Edward clinging precariously to his last shred of sanity, Dr. Smith's patient Lydia (a goodhearted psychic woman with clues to Edward's past) arrives for her appointment to find Edward in big trouble. Despite the chaos created by unexpected visitors and quirks in Lydia's psychic powers, Lydia does her best to gain Edward's trust and help him find justice as his world rapidly approaches critical mass. Psych's humor is broad in scope including slapstick, wordplay and a bit of dark humor.
