"Pilot" is episode 1 of season 1 of Psych and is the first episode overall. It was written and directed by Steven Franks.


Raised by his policeman father to be especially observant of his surroundings, Shawn develops a talent to deduce the solution to crimes by simply watching TV reports. Usually just 'phoning in tips to the police, after seeing a report on a kidnapping, he visits the police, who suspect he is involved in the crime. Convincing them he has psychic abilities, the police hire him to help them on this high-profile case. Shawn thinks the kidnapping is a set-up, but when he tracks down the place he thinks the "crimimals" are hiding he, and the police, are in for a nasty surprise.
