Ha! How indeed!

This is the second commercial I've seen and I can't say I care for how young the players are being depicted. What happened to families, older teenagers and adults. Does Hasbro only think children and tweeners play Clue now?

It looks well acted, but I can't see a bloody thing.

One of these days somebody will do this right.

With all the tools and technology available today, there is no reason not to mic these things better and have at least two cameras running with at least one operator. That way not only can you clearly hear what's being said, you can also have closeups of the main action so you don't miss the non-verbals -- vitally important in the movie adaptations.

As soon as I typed up my stories, I'll do some more mysteries. At the moment, I'm making a game.

Don't worry. I haven't been refraining from updating because of a lack of interest; I've simply been caught up in other things. AP classes and college visits, you know how it goes.

Where did you get that info?
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

This looks pretty official:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-f ... ate-377675

It's just sad Madeline Khan is dead, so the entire cast will never be reunited. But this is only three of them. Better than none!

"The pivotal 100th episode will pay homage to the 1985 film Clue, reuniting original cast members Christopher Lloyd, Lesley Ann Warren and Martin Mull. Guest stars in the episode will also include Garrett Morris, Steve Valentine and Tears for Fears' Curt Smith. The two-hour musical, simply called Psych: The Musical, will feature original songs and appearances by Barry Bostwick, Brooke Lyons and Anthony Rapp."

Well, if they are playing the actual characters coming back together, Tim Curry was shot dead at the end of the movie, so he would never be able to reprise his role. The rest of them would presumably still be in prison, but who knows perhaps these three managed to get out on good behavior. Of course Michael McKean would be free to attend ...

Curry was initially scheduled to do that last season actually, but couldn't make it out of contractual reasons. Not sure why the deal fell through altogether.

I'll be curious to see how they do this. It appears Tim Curry already played a non-Clue guest star role in Season 2.

http://www.buddytv.com/articles/psych/f ... 45988.aspx

So if these characters are reprising their Clue roles, Curry would be out anyway. Though they would be considerably older than the actors, unless this is some kind of flashback. So they are probably playing new characters altogether. In which case it's a shame they didn't get more of the original cast including Yvette, et al.

There appear to be a lot of guest stars besides the three Clue stars, so they probably aren't going to be the main focus of the episode anyway.

It looks like its going to air March 27th.

Yup, all new characters. This suddenly lost its appeal to me. Garrett Morris will be playing the Wadsworth character. It's even more disappointing that McKean isn't in it now considering his Spinal Tap roots.

Like the 1985 satire of the popular board game, "100 Clues" will feature multiple endings.
But the plot of Psych's homage is brand-new: Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) are tasked with absolving '70s glam rocker Billy Lipps (frontman of Billy Lipps and The Guys Behind Me) of murder. Lloyd plays his snobby biographer (titled Rock Bottom), Warren is the band's former groupie, and Mull slurs his way through the show as the band's drunk manager. And because every respectable murder mystery needs a butler, 2 Broke Girls' Garrett Morris fills the spot for Tim Curry's iconic role.
In his second appearance on Psych, Tears for Fears' Curt Smith plays a fictionalized version of himself.
