With the recent passing of George Kennedy, it reminded me of one of the greatest comedy franchises in history….Police Squad.  George Kennedy played a brilliant straight man to Leslie Nielsen.  Every great comedian is enhanced by an equally brilliant straight man.   Look at Abbott and Costello, Jerry and Dean or Larry David and Jeff Green.  Take a look at this clip of Police Squad and you will be trying to illegally download all the episodes from the TV show and the Naked Gun series.
