[ Life]

Last month, the Family Guy writers made a controversial move by killing off beloved family dog Brian. The move shocked viewers into full blown outrage. For weeks fans have been trying to get the Family Guy writers to change their decision about Brian’s life. Well it turns out that fans were overreacting…a bit. Because Brian came back to life only two episodes later.

In the episode entitled “Life of Brian”, Brian is hit by a car and ultimately dies. On tonight’s Christmas special episode of Family Guy, entitledChristmas Guy”, an emotional Stewie tells a mall Santa that all he wanted for Christmas is Brian back.The replacement dog, Vinnie, tries to help Stewie deal with his grief, but his efforts fail to help him  recover from Brian’s death. Eventually, the two travel back in time to save Brian from getting hit by a car.

Killing off Brian ranks high in the most talked about 2013 television events category. It sparked all kinds of media buzz. It even sent some fans to Change.Org to get the Family Guy producers to rethink their decision.The petition received over 75,000 signatures before closing.

This is just one case in which shows’ creators see how invested their fans are in their shows and its characters.  Whether Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane killed Brian to get buzz for the show, or to show a big moral lesson to the viewers, they may never know. However, MacFarlane tweets after the show suggests the latter.

He tweeted this:

Then followed it up with this:

The real moral lesson from Brian’s death and resurrection is that fans should at least wait a couple episodes before they begin to panic and start a petition to get a character back on a show.  They should also maybe remember that cartoon characters die and come back quite often.

    that was nothing but pathetic I know the whole time he was coming back to life. Brian the dog on family guy will always remain on the show. and Vinnie the dog will never replace Brian the dog unless he
    is written off Family Guy. to the people who thought the Brian the dog
    really was really dead on the show was just a hoax and f##king stupid.
    Seth MacFarlane is a douchebag for letting this happened. if I was the writer of this show I would of let the fans know what really know what happens in the next episode of family guy as a clue but to despite it all that was nothing but a big mistake. bottom line I watch the show because of Peter and Stew and they are the two best characters on the show. as for Megan, Chris and Louis they are just too annoying. especially Quack mayor with that gig get t speech. my favorite character on the show is Brain end of story and if this ever happens again on the show as Brian being killed I’m sure it will be cancelled just like The Cleveland Show.
