Adam West!

BAM! BIFF! POW! Actor Adam West VRONK’d his last this weekend, at the age of 88! Probably best known to the younger generation for his voice work – most notably as a twisted version of himself on Family Guy as the mayor of Quahog, but also on episodes of The Simpsons, Futurama, and Fairly OddParents – as well as cameos as himself in such TV shows as The Big Bang Theory, Murphy Brown, 30 Rock, The King of Queens, and NewsRadio. His career stretched back to the 1950s, however, appearing in numerous westerns and crime shows before his breakthrough role on, that’s right, The Detectives as Sgt. Steve Nelson in 1961-62. His 30 episodes there jumped him into many hit programs of the decade, including guest shots on Perry Mason, Petticoat Junction, Laramie, Gunsmoke, and the feature film Robinson Crusoe on Mars. Adam West, everybody!

Okay, okay, he was also the first Batman any of us can remember

And Munchak picks up his fourth death in two months and becomes the fifth person to tally 50 all-time, slotting solidly in the middle of the pack here in ’17! He’s already passed his 2016 total, landing him firmly in the very early Most Improved discussion! Well done!

SOCK, indeed!

Replacement pick due by next Monday!
