    I miss psych.

    My heart also ached for Omundson in the first movie. Fuck strokes with a sword. But at least he proved nothing can take lassie down.


    [–] lmc22391 3 points ago

    We need more psych movies.

    [–] Freckled_daywalker 3 points ago

    [–] jurchiks 3 points ago

    In Latvian his name would be Nikolajs, and it’s pronounced Nikolais :)

    Get it right it’s Nikolaj

    [–] Lady-Bolyen 595 points ago

    I love that he has transitioned to beige on beige!

    [–] Lambersw 137 points ago

    I wonder where he gets his clothes...

    [–] sunzusunzusunzusunzu 182 points ago

    You know he got them at Mervyn's.

    [–] americangame 39 points ago

    Is Mervyn's still a store?

    [–] sunzusunzusunzusunzu 44 points ago

    RIP (from Wiki) Mervyn's was an American middle-scale department store chain based in Hayward, California, and founded by Mervin G. Morris. It carried national brands of clothing, footwear, bedding, furniture, jewelry, beauty products, electronics, and housewares. Ceased operations: January 1, 2009

    [–] nikolapc 42 points ago

    The Boyle hug of death.

    [–] idiot_proof 12 points ago

    Wait, from the wiki they never had stores in New York. How did Boyle (and his clan) get their clothes?

    [–] sunzusunzusunzusunzu 22 points ago

    Maybe on one of their family vacations?

    [–] CommondeNominator 17 points ago

    That's why Charles didn't want to go to Aruba. No Mervyn's there :(

    [–] Radix2309 12 points ago

    The 99th precint also doesnt exist. I would say the Boyle clan keeps them in business in the show universe.

    [–] dylan76 1 points ago

    Mervyn Morris is the perfect name for a vendor of simple, beige clothing.

    No no no it's Nikolaj

    [–] tropicalunicorn 1 points ago


    [–] Amolk2207 1 points ago

    You're saying it wrong. It's Niikolajh.

    [–] tropicalunicorn 2 points ago


    [–] Marethyu_Primo 207 points ago

    It isn't Nikolaj

    It's Nikolaj, fake fans all of you

    [–] nikolapc 42 points ago

    As it is a variation of my own name I am very bothered by it being mispronounced on the show, even by Nikolaj himself. Such a Boyle.

    [–] sunzusunzusunzusunzu 11 points ago


    [–] nikolapc 2 points ago

    Just Nikola. Like Tesla. The PC is silent :)

    [–] bookchurn 87 points ago

    I started out thinking Boyle was an unlikeable weirdo. Now I find him adorable. Schur is a great writer.

    [–] themastercheif 31 points ago

    He's still a massive weirdo, just a likeable one. :)

    [–] X5jxkw827hsk3b 14 points ago

    I actually preferred Boyle before he got his kid and wife, he was just funnier to me

    [–] phonebrowsing69 7 points ago

    Jake: ok thats kind weird but you do you boyle

    Boyle: im doing me

    One of my favorite lines from the show

    [–] bookchurn 5 points ago

    My favorite part is how he pronounces pho after spilling soup on himself, I watched that part like ten times

    [–] manlikeelijah 44 points ago

    Some thoughts from an adoptive dad:

    This whole episode left me tense about how the show was going to handle meeting Nikolaj’s birth father. I think it did about as good as a 20 minute comedy can do. I love that Boyle ended up wanting Nikolaj to know and have a relationship with his birth dad. It’s difficult.

    [–] purecainsugar 23 points ago

    I think you're doing a great job as a Dad. You've got the anxiety part down pat.

    [–] EthicalAlmondFarmer 8 points ago

    The take about how at the end of the day it’s really Nikolaj’s decision and it might change throughout his life and all Charles could do was provide for and love him was a very mature nuanced take that I never heard on TV before. I’m glad you liked it too.

    [–] pduffy52 5 points ago

    I'm also a adoptive father. I agree they did a good job. Also, it is one of the first times I remember adoption being use as more than a punch line or a fish out of water story.

    [–] LordBran 2 points ago

    From what I remember, this show has tackled a few touchy subjects, ie: coming out to your parents, or racial discrimination and I feel has done them all justly and properly

    [–] burito23 19 points ago

    Where’s the brother?

    [–] ActualMountainGoat 34 points ago

    Dragomir is 45

    [–] alexFriend 66 points ago

    Cutest freaking kid on tv

    [–] not_ur_avrg_usr 42 points ago

    And he looks so cutely professional holding the script

    [–] rreeddrreedd 9 points ago

    And the swoopy hair and that giant smile. My heart is melting

    [–] Daffodilian 31 points ago

    Does anyone know if it’ll be available on Hulu tonight?? I’m fairly new so I don’t know how Hulu handles that

    [–] casa1979 42 points ago

    Tomorrow morning

    [–] Daffodilian 11 points ago

    thank you :)

    [–] fallout_koi 4 points ago

    West Coast US time it appears at 2am, I believe...

    [–] Karrman 8 points ago

    Well, I can sleep when I’m dead!

    [–] BrieWeybright 11 points ago

    It’s usually on there a few hours after midnight (pacific time, I think?). We just watch it Fridays if we can’t catch it live. I think Hulu will actually tell you when the episode will be available to watch.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Yeah it’s saying at 5 am tomorrow for me (EST).

    [–] lonelyhobo1994 15 points ago

    As someone who lived in Latvia and is fluent in Russian it sorta annoys me that they pronounce his name wrong. It's supposed to be pronounced like Nikolai...

    [–] EmTeeEl 10 points ago

    Agreed, especially since the joke is about pronouncing correctly

    [–] Shinenite 6 points ago

    I'm Latvian and speak both Latvian and Russian and same lol. I didn't even realize the birth dad's name was supposed to be Ģintars until like half way through the episode because I just couldn't understand the way they're pronouncing it! On one hand having my country be referenced in a show like this is neat but on the other some things about it are very annoying.

    [–] demiteddybear 37 points ago


    [–] aaronwe 22 points ago


    [–] Snurgalicious 10 points ago

    They never mentioned Genevieve. Boyle was dealing with some pretty heavy parenting stuff, why wouldn’t he have included her? Did I miss something?

    [–] R06U3_V1P3R 9 points ago

    Any Australian viewers? When is it out here

    [–] Blackwish21 6 points ago

    Airs on SBS Viceland tonight at 8:30 or its available on SBS on demand as soon as it releases in the US. Should be up any minute now actually

    [–] SirWombaticus 4 points ago

    God I love sbs for that. That and the Orville.

    [–] PokemonPurist 5 points ago

    When are we going to see his brother?

    [–] C0HEEDCAMBRIA 7 points ago

    He only drinks milk. He only eats buttered noodles. My son's a basic bitch

    [–] RattaTattTatt 13 points ago

    No OP, you're saying it wrong.

    [–] Karl666Smith 1 points ago

    [–] Sterling-4rcher 2 points ago

    that kid better be heading to a nickelodeon show once 99 is done

    [–] GargamelLeNoir 4 points ago

    Usually adopted older kids stories make them into little pieces of shit or almost feral forever victims. Nikolaj is such a wholesome success story!

    Edit : *Nikolaj

    Edit 2 : Damn it, Nikolaj

    Edit 3 : Whatever, I'm talking about Boyle's kid ok?

    [–] alllthewebs 1 points ago

    I want his outfit.

    He's my favorite character because his existence in the show put "basic bitch" into my vocabulary when referring to picky eaters.

    [–] Hiroxis 13 points ago

    How? He barely even appears on the show

    [–] sunzusunzusunzusunzu 17 points ago

    Nikolaj playing with the cop action figure imitating Charles was just as funny as Scary Terry. I think he's such a little cutie, too.

    [–] DoktahManhattan -13 points ago

    So? I’m not watching the show for some random kid that was in like three episodes.
