Hmmm....I'm sensing a TV show out of this. If CSI-Miami can use "Won't Get Fooled Again" by the Who for a theme song, then CSI-Woodbury can use "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin. (I knew that growing up in a part of northern Minnesota where the radio choices were either country, pop music, or continual rehashing of 1960s-70s songs would come in handy someday.)

I'll write the script Berg. Who stars?

Well, to make this work like a typical crime drama....you need a somewhat hard bitten, but followable leader, an underling who talks gruff, but is actually a big softy, a romantic interest for one of those two, a nerdy guy/gal to do all the science-y stuff, and at least two investigators, preferably one of each gender to give that "chemistry." Oh, any you need a completely overbearing, obnoxious boss over all of them who gets in the way, but eventually relents (much like Quincy's boss on Quincy, ME) Leader. Hmm...hook the jumper cables up to Jack Lord and see if we can reincarnate him....if not, then Scott Glenn. 2nd in command, George Wendt...I think that "Norm" from Cheers can pull this role off. Romantic lead: Go with an unknown to save money, initially. Nerdy gal/guy: Joel Hodgson or Danica McKellar Investigator duo: You pick two complete unknowns who have good chemistry. Overbearing boss: I'd say Dabney Coleman, but that's too easy of typecasting. Bradley Whitford, Rene Auberjonois, or Joe Don Baker. (Yes, that's quite a wide swath there.) Methinks you've got yourself a Thanksgiving week open-ended poll question... Create a cast for CSI-Woodbury. It'd be great if Lee Vague would weigh in. :)
