CSI: Alaska (part I)
Hi-dey ho, sketch-a-rinos!
Sorry for the absence – last week was a rehearsal / performance filled blur, and this week started off the same way.
But neither wind nor sleet nor lack of sleep can keep me from my appointed rounds.
I’m going to try something different this week too….instead of a single sketch, I’m going to do a runner – a series of short sketches that would be placed intermittently through a review that, hopefully, in the end add up to something more.
So without further ado, here’s the first one….CSI: Alaska
EXT. ALASKAN PLAIN – DAY
LEVI and STRAUSS, bundled up in parka’s and gloves, stand over the carcass of a dead moose in blowing snow on a barren whit plain. Strauss wears a navy blue parka with a police badge pinned to the front and “CSI” stenciled on the back in big yellow letters.
The trajectory indicates the moose was shot from up high with a high powered rifle, probably from a helicopter. Not very sportsman-like...the moose never had a chance.
Levi pulls a .45 automatic out of his jacket and shoots Strauss in the head. Strauss falls dead. Levi pulls out a cell phone and makes a call.
Hey Ethel, it’s Levi. Tell the governor we gotta hire another CSI chief. We accidentally hired another smart one and I had to put him down.
