Family Guy Tribute to Adam West

Pop culture lost an icon in early June when Batman television series star Adam West passed away at age 88 after a battle with leukemia. The internet paid endless respect to the man who was the first encounter many fans had with The Caped Crusader. Now another tribute comes from the show that kept Adam West a household name, even for those who may not have known who he was.

Family Guy made Adam West into quite the character on the FOX animated series by creating an exaggerated version of the actor as the mayor of Quahog, the Rhode Island town that the Griffin family calls home. The animated version of West was kooky, not too bright, and always one of the best parts of the show, and the Family Guy crew wanted to pay tribute to the actor with a montage of his best moments from the series.

Bill Murray ESPYs Speech

Yes, this is still a film blog. No, we’re not drunk. But when Bill Murray and Nick Offerman get together to continue celebrating the World Series victory that the Chicago Cubs earned back in the fall of 2016 after 108 years of waiting for the title, how can we ignore it?

Both the Ghostbusters star and the Parks and Recreation man for all seasons are lifelong Chicago Cubs fans, so it’s only appropriate that the two comedy stars were part of the acceptance speech when the baseball team won Best Moment at the 2017 ESPY Awards on ABC last night. After a touching recollection of that final play that happened in extra innings, presenter Nick Offerman giggles like an excited boy and hands the award off to Bill Murray, pretending (?) to be drunk while paying tribute to the team that he’s loved since he was a boy.
