The Vine: August 9, 2013
I'm looking for a specific episode of a syndicated TV show (of the low-budget Canadian-produced variety) in the supernatural detective genre.
The lead detective character had dark hair (in the Michael Easton/Dave Annable mold) and I think was an established genre actor. I only saw like 20 minutes of it, but it involved a detective dealing with the spirit of a dead male musician, or at least getting psychic impressions of him. The detective would walk around an apartment when a recording of the dead musician singing a cover of Linda Ronstadt's "Long Long Time" would start up and ghostly handprints would appear in the room. The conclusion of the mystery was that either the musician or his girlfriend or both were killed because he was going to reboot his career with the new cover (or something in that vein).
I don't know if the apartment was the detective's or the musician's. There was also a bar involved somehow. It was maybe a hangout joint or the place where one of the victims worked or maybe the apartment was above the bar.
I'm an insomniac, and this is the sort of show I would probably have watched at either 3 AM on network TV or on random Saturday afternoons when I'm eating brunch. I probably saw this show somewhere between 2005-2008 but given it was a syndicated show, it could have been produced a few years earlier. I had cable with premium channels so I might have seen it on a cable station, but I tend to surf broadcast stuff when I can't sleep.
My Google skills are failing me, probably because supernatural investigations is a badly crowded field. It'd be great if I can figure out the episode but I'd be happy just knowing the TV show and trolling on my own from there.
Thanks for any help you or your readers can provide!
