    Hello. What's the name of the song from the end of the episode? Thanks.
  • Bapple. (it's a Charlie word)

    The lead singer of a cover band is killed. The band they cover was from the 80s. A piece of plastic with the dead mans face is imprinted in it found. The band wears makeup. The initial suspect is Tyler Sims which is also the name of the original band member. He had his name legally changed. To bring in Tyler Sims impersonators and try to get the man they want, they start calling the impersonators to Charlie's house. The only one that is familiar to the roadies that are helping the police find the killer is a woman who tried out to be Tyler Sims a year earlier and also happens to work at the music hall where the band plays. Here name is Patty York and she has an alibi. They finally track down Tyler Sims the old lead singer of the cover band who was kicked out and he has an alibi. Another suspect is Dr. Stanton who is also in the cover band. He gets fingered as going into the music hall with the dead Tyler Sims from the cover band by a homeless man that is always hanging around the music hall. They arrest Stanton but he did not do it either. But they do get him on a charge of writing to many prescriptions for painkillers and possible taking advantage of his female patents.

    Crews and Reese finally chase down the former singer of the cover band and arrest him on suspicion of murder. When they show him the plastic that the other singer was smothered in something clicks in his head and he tells them to look at his fan mail. There was a letter with a piece of plastic similar to the murder weapon in his fan mail.

    Crews looks a pictures from concerts of the cover band from different cities looking for an obsessed fan. In all the pictures one face stands out. It is the homeless man that originally said Dr. Stanton was the one that went in with Tyler Sims the night he was killed. He is looking very intently as the cover bands Tyler Sims in all of the photos. As it turns out he is the real Tyler Sims who never died as suspected and he is jealous of the fake one getting all his glory.

    Why did they cancel this show? Reese and Tidwell are starting to be believable as a couple. Tidwell is starting to click with the rest of the characters.moreless
  • Great episode with lots of humour and drama.

    This was another highly enjoyable episode of Life. Charlie Crews always has the most brilliant lines, I loved it when he was trying to think of a nickname for Dani. The scene with Patty in his car was great and I loved the dentist's waiting room when Charlie and Dani walked in to find all the patients were heavily made up rockers auditionaing for lead singer of the dentist's breakaway tribute band. There was also a sweet moment when Ted and Charlie are waiting by the roadside and they both admit that they don't know women. I loved the painted car too!moreless
  • Such a funny eppy!

    Aah Crews how you make me laugh. Overall very good character development in this ep, even Tidwell. Miss Rachel though and hope they bring her back. The way they got rid of her was way to convinient!

    Man there is a scene where Olivia has left Crews snr. so Crew snr comes to see Charlie at his house and Ted gets involved and oh that scene had my sides splitting. We get very little from the wall but at least it appeared, plus the return of one of Charlies car that he gave away to that stranger in season 1moreless

      Dani: Yeah. Because of me and... I'm just gonna go to bed.

    • Kevin: (from the Kitchen)I do love you. Of course I love you. How could you even ask me that? I will always love you. But you have to know it's not you, it's me, ok?. (Dani walks into the Kitchen from the bedroom) I'm gonna say goodbye now. (Dumps a bottle of liquor down the kitchen sink).
      Dani: (smiling)You don't have to do this.
