The Geekbox: Episode 260

It’s a super-sad week, on account of the tragic passing of director/writer/actor Harold Ramis, who’s probably best-known as Dr. Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters. If you were around during the ’80s and early ’90s, well, Ramis was probably responsible for writing and/or directing a lot of the movies that made you laugh: stuff like Animal House, Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Stripes, Meatballs, Back to School, Groundhog Day, and (of course) the two Ghostbusters films. And for my seven-year-old self, Egon Spengler was perhaps the earliest example of a character I really identified with — a guy who made nerdy, introverted people seem cool (back in an era where this wasn’t nearly as commonplace). And that’s all thanks to Ramis’ sharp wit, killer delivery, and top-notch writing talent. We’ve lost one of the greatest comedians of our time, in one of those heartbreaking events that remind us our heroes are only human.
