Storyline

Rock vamp with prima donna-complex Shanda faints on stage when she receives a cut-up picture of herself in a box of roses. Her manager brings her, almost identically looking back-up singer Claire and drummer Cinnamon to Community General for a check-up, but no harm is found. Shanda tells Dr. Mark Sloan she has a stalker since months, the police can't do anything without any physical threat; a truck tries to run them over the next minute, her fan Dr. Jack Stewart finds no actual fractures. Steve is incredulous, given Shanda's publicity stunt record, but Mark takes her in his home; Steve goes in her hospital bed, where 'nurse' Dolores practices her torturous injection technique on the healthy hunk's behind. Mark concentrates on the dynamics of the musical staff, Jack regrets sorely taking Amanda along looking into roadie Parick, who gets murdered... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Dr. Jack Stewart: Hey, look at that, a message.
Detective Steve Sloan: I know.
Dr. Jack Stewart: Well, aren't we going to listen to it?
Detective Steve Sloan: No, we are not. To do so would constitute an illegal search.
Dr. Jack Stewart: [looks confused]
Detective Steve Sloan: Here's her parent's phone number. It's in Little Rock...
Dr. Jack Stewart: I don't get this. How come you're allowed to look through that book, but we can't play back her message?
Detective Steve Sloan: This is in plain site. That is not! It's an invasion of privacy without a warrant!
Dr. Jack Stewart: Oh, the law! It's very complex, I forget. But let me ask you this: What if someone, not a cop, but ...

"She could sing, I got the stuff"
27 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The ending of Shanda's Song was a real twist. I never saw it coming. Anyway, the outcome reminded me of the documentary 20 Feet from Stardom which chronicled the lives of backup singers, which was the central point of Shanda's Song. At the end Shanda acknowledges her backup singer could sing, but she had the stuff.

This episode was filmed in Colorado. We know so because we see Colorado number plates in the bar, where Dr Bentley squared off against Patrick, a former roadie for Shanda, in a pool match (she won).

One amusing scene was where Dr Sloan did a quick "I'm bad" diddy on stage! Loved it!

I have to keep reminding myself that Michael Tucci, who plays the officious hospital administrator, is not related to Stanley Tucci. Not sure why I have to keep on reminding myself, but definitely Michael is not Stanley's brother.
