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.

Time machines, bringing dead dogs back back from the future.... no thank you, I'll stick with reality tv, something that believable.

I'm super happy Brian is back but I'm sad about Vinnie. Now Vinnie is back at the shelter missing his old owner who died. This was a really sad ending. I hope they bring Vinnie back or at least show that he ended up with a nice family.
And yes, I know it's a show but I have a weird neurosis where I can't help but feel like inanimate objects have feelings, so you can imagine how a cartoon dog being in a shelter for the holidays would make me sad.

oh good ol brain, uh ..brian, eh? he actually has a whole other significance as a 'collective data collector' as his 'big black nose' is in actuality a 'retina reader' and can register 'thoughts' as you ' unsuspectingly watch the scene' in which he is projected (often very 'contentious' or very 'taboo breaking' situations, to 'loosen up people's morals a little bit). with the passive information reading on the peripheral retina can be coded, and this information gathered can be used to psychologically manipulate you, to force certain 'desired behaviors' of you, if the need so be. but hey, i am sure most people don't really have a big problem with that. ;D conspiracy. therefore, 'be careful what you are thinking, it may be used against you' (if you prove yourself to be too much of a prude, that is)! xD scandal!! xD

Please give the time machine to Scooby Doo and Shaggy so we never meet Scrappy Doo. Or to Roseanne Barr to rethink that last episode! Or to the producers of Lost to rethink the entire series and ending.
