Hi Bubba here, ...

I hope I remembering this correctly, Gus drives a Toyota Yaris, formely known as the Toyota Echo hatchback. It is available in Canada but, not in the United States. I'm not certain about the year.

Thats not the same car. Gus' has four doors, or at least he does in American Duos. I'm really hoping I can maybe get one, so I hope they might be here in the US!!

Four Door Toyota Yaris. It's available in the United States, acutally within the last two weeks I've seen two on the road out here. Black and silver, I would have been more than thrilled if they were bright blue.

Well, being how good the members on this board are at identifying props on the show, how about something a little more challenging, say, identifying the kind of bracelet Shawn is wearing in the photos under his character profile? Here's one of the pics:

See there? On his right wrist?
Now I know it's a bracelet of some sort (god I hope it is a bracelet and I'm not making myself look like a dolt), but what kind? If you look at this image...

...it would appear to be braided, see the frayed end? So if anyone could tell me about this bracelet and if it has any significance. Thanks.

It's not braided, it's woven and flat as opposed to round, I think, and I believe that it might be what we used to call a friendship bracelet. I don't know what they are called now or if the friendship bracelet was just what people in my area called them, but if it's what I think it is, my kids have gotten them out of bubble gum machines, toy cranes and as prizes for tickets at arcades and carnivals in the last few years. I can make one very similar in seed beads, even copy the pattern, by weaving it on a bead loom, though. It wouldn't have the frayed knot end, and it wouldn't be that fiber material though. I've actually made bracelets in a similar pattern like that one before. It's really simple to do and if you are interested in making one for yourself I could probably find you some links to teach you how and I could even draw up the pattern for you.

What about the silver chain he wears around his neck in most episodes? Shawn Spencer claims he doesnt like jewelry in Poker, so is it James'? And what could be attached to it, if anything?

Now that I think about it, that is a good question PrincessShawn. I think I'm gonna do a little sluthing, I'll get back with all of you soon. Oh yeah, and Liv, thanks for the tip, I'd love some links if it's not too much trouble. (I have to say, I feel a little silly, like a giddy, 11-year-old girl, trying to duplicate Shawn's bracelet!)

Background: Shawn Spencer (Psych) states in Poker? I Barely Know Her that he doesn't wear jewelery, yet he is seen in many episodes wearing a chain around his neck.

Case: Is the chain part of Shawn's character or does it belong to James Roday?

Evidence:
Here is an image of Shawn from Poker? I Barely Know Her:
Posted Image
There it it, the chain PrincessShawn was talking about.
We also see the chain in several of the Psych photo shoots, such as this one:Posted Image
PrincessShawn wondered if the chain might be James', so lets see...
Here is an image of James Roday at USA Upfront 2007:
Posted Image
I believe this image gives us our answer. If you look closely to the left of his neck (our left, his right) you can see just a little of a chain. The chain appears to be identical to the one we see in Psych and the photo shoots.

Conclusion: These findings lead me to believe that the chain is indeed James', as he is seen wearing it consistently, on and off the set of Psych, however I will not even begin to speculate what is on the chain, that is, assuming there is something on the chain.

Final Notes:
I do not mean to present any of the above as fact, as it is purely speculation and deduction.
I hope this isn't too creepy for James, if it is, just say so.
I apologize for the corny format I wrote this post in, even I had trouble keeping a straight face while writing this.



Well, this was fun, but it's about time I went off to work.

My sister owns one 3 door, (NOTE: RS 5-door is a Canadian model. US buyers choose from 3- or 4-door base and 4-door Yaris S.). It's a TOYOTA YARIS LIFTBACK in Blazing Blue Metallic not sure what package it is (there are three packages).

I love that little car. It also reminds me of one of the Mazda models of the same color and size.

Loved the investigative work, dallen. :)
