Family Guy

Brian Griffin Returns From the Dead

Jesus Christ ain't got nothing on Brian the dog ... as "Family Guy" brought him back from the dead on last night's episode -- 3 weeks after he was left for roadkill.

Here's how Brian Griffin was resurrected -- Stewie cries to a mall Santa that he wants his best friend back -- and then through a wrinkle in the time-space continuum ... steals his broken time machine from another version of himself ... but before it was broken.

Yeah ... time travel is confusing.

Blah, blah, blah ... Stewie goes back in time, and pushes Brian out of the way of the car that ran him over.

After the episode ... Seth MacFarlane tweeted: "And thus endeth our warm, fuzzy holiday lesson: Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash."

Whatever. All we know is Brian's back ... all is right again.

They had to or the show would have been done. No one likes the new dog. I havent watched a new episode since Brian died.

Wimps. Just for shock value, I would've killed both Brian and Stewie the second time around. Then brought them back about 5 episodes later. >:)

Like no one saw this coming? Only total morons were convinced he was gone for good.

Nice PUBLICITY STUNT. It is certain that they expected a huge "Bring back Brian" campaign online, but they miscalculated. It never materialized.

It's the best Christmas present so far. I'm sure glad Seth isn't Jewish.

I am happy they brought Brian back, that was so sad when he died and thanked them for his life. Very touching.
