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.

What happened to your assertion that he's gone for good? You had proof and everything! A 10 second Google search would've revealed there's episodes later in the season with Brian in them, but NO NO...you talked to the guy from the Sopranos. Derp.

Seth is full of sh*t. He brought Brian back because of all the backlash he got. If this was the plan then why did that guy tape 6 episodes of the new dog?

Next week Brian and Vinny smell each others butts, like what they smell and become homosexual lovers.

Gosh, NO ONE saw that plot twist coming . . . Ha!
The only good thing about this whole stupid publicity stunt is what Seth McFarland said, and he is absolutely correct.

Technically he is not back from the dead. The timeline was changed so he never died in the first place.
