Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

I wasn't immediately emotional because I expected it to be reversed by the end of the episode, but as it started to become clear that wasn't going to happen I was a little upset by the whole thing. Stewie's reactions were definitely the most resonant, but that's hardly surprising.

Family Guy once killed off Meg at the end of one episode, only to bring her back alive at the beginning of the nest episode with no explanation whatever.

Cleveland and his family are re-joining the show in a future episode. I wonder how often they'll show the full cast?

I don't recall the specific incident, but I'm betting that that had the feel of a one-off gag at the time, which FG is well-known for.

Brian getting hit by the car didn't feel like that at the time, but rather, initially, like something they'd probably reset within the course of the episode (the time machine being an obvious loophole). Of course, then they didn't.

Peter offed himself at the end of the latest episode (when he and Quagmire became a musical duo). But that's not permanent.

Who knows maybe he'll also be replaced in the opening credits next week

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

It would be hilarious, after a fashion, if by the end of the season there was a completely different cast.

Whaddaya know? The predictions were right. Stewie went back in time to save Brian's life.

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

A friend of mine from high school died during the week after the Brian car episode. Now we weren't close and hadn't kept in touch or anything, but one of the last things he posted was a pic of Brian giving a toast because he was bummed Brian was gone. Went to his grave thinking Brian wasn't coming back. Ultimately a trivial thing what happens in a cartoon, but I couldn't watch this episode without thinking of an old buddy.

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

That was the most pedestrian way possible to bring him back... I was hoping for a bigger and more epic adventure. And do it two episodes after killing him?! Yeesh. They should have strung it out a bit more.

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

That's true. And if they were going to bring Brian back, why bother to change the opening theme showing Vinny as the family dog?

Probably to try and trick the audience into thinking it was real.

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

^Honestly, I thought that was kind of obvious.
