A moment of silence doesn't seem like enough when another TV hero has died. Don Adams was most famous for the absurdist spy comedy Get Smart, created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry. The show worked because he personified the anti-Bond, combining supreme levels of seriousness and ineptitude. He was a major icon of deadpan humor; even Leslie Nielsen owes him a great deal. We miss him by that much.
So, Steve Carell, the pressure is on with the movie adaptation due next year. Do the legacy proud.
