I found out from an official interview that Brian is coming back before any of you did?

No. You didn't. That's the point. Learn to fucking READ. There has been NO announcement, NO interview with anybody stating that Brian is coming back. It is all speculation still. We are only guessing that he probably is. That's what I was saying.
Oh my fucking God, you couldn't be more annoying if you were playing a fucking recorder! Get off my forum.

I'd like to cut your throat.

Cartoonlover27, after you pointed that out to him, he went back to that thread and claimed that he was 'parodying' me. Two hours after the original post, mind you.
Also, don't believe he knows what the word 'parody' actually means.

Here I am being cleverly juxtapositional, contrasting cutsey adorable imagery with throat-cutting for dark comic effect, and his homage is to just blatantly outright tell someone he wants to cut their throat. See, there's no artistry to that, no wit, no nothing.

In any event everybody's free to express a desire to take another person's life. Man, if I had my way there'd be about a thousand dead people laid out behind me. Everybody who ever wronged me, in fact. What's not okay is actually threatening to kill. Might seem like splitting hairs, but there's actually a world of difference.

Truth is, I would absolutely love to kill stum. And manwich, and ben and crapbag. Slowly. I shant, though. It's against the law. big grin

That's what GTA is for!

Anyway, stupid move on FG's part, the death of Brian. And as much as I'd prefer him to return, that would almost feel even stupider. If I didn't already think his death was nothing more than a cynical gimmick, his return would certainly cement that belief.

It shouldn't have been done in anything other than a two-parter where he returns at the end of the second episode.

I mean... yeah, obviously you have to assume that's what's going to happen, but there's still no actual quote from any actual FG staffer on the issue.

Wait, does that article really say that it's because of the petition they're bringing (would bring) Brian back, or is it just sarcastic in some messed up way?

Like Josh said, it's sarcastic. Given that the episode in question where he returns is scheduled to air in a couple of weeks, and it's generally a matter of 6 months to a year between the writing of an episode and it going on the air, I think it's pretty safe to say that the petition has absolutely nothing to do with it. tongue

I just checked one of the online petitions trying to bring Brian back, and holy shit. It has well over 100,000 signatures! WTF?  mad

I wish the bring Futurama back petitions had this many signatures, not that I necessarily want it back, but would love to see the show have great powerful support like that!

Watching Life of Brian now, and I'm halfway through.

So Brian's dead. And Stewie conveniently destroyed his time travel machine earlier in this episode, so he can't just use it to retcon the event. Fine. But wasn't Stewie the one who invented the thing? Presumably he can make another.

Edit - I unpause the episode, and within 90 seconds Stewie basically says he's going to run off and rebuild his time machine. Presumably something will prevent this from coming to pass. Maybe he's too old, past his prime, can't remember how he did it?

So, I watched the episode where Brian dies. Lots of people were talking about it. I didn't want to not know what the hell they were on about.

It's the first time I've watched Family Guy since 2006 or so, and I'm probably going to wait at least another seven years before I watch another episode again. The internet seems to agree that Brian will be back one way or another, and it's sure to be something else that gets everybody talking.

But I no longer care. The show's about as interesting and entertaining as clipping my toenails. The last couple of pages of this thread are far more entertaining (although that's not saying much).

Pssh, please. Family Guy's been dead since Season 5. I don't know how people still brainlessly defend the new episodes. And announcing a character dying was just a desperate attempt for ratings. Which is low.

Also, wasn't his voice actor supposed to have been contracted for "at least" six episodes and possibly more? That was only three. Maybe he'll come back in some kind of supporting capacity. I wouldn't mind that, actually. He rather grew on me, especially in this episode.

2 Possibilities of how it will play out:

A - Brian will stay dead for good. The "Brian Is A Bad Father" episode will be about Brian's ghost wanting to make amends with his son before he's 'at peace'. And "Brian The Closer" will be nothing more than a clipshow inwhich the family reminisces about Brian.

B - There will be a Christmas episode where Stewie from the past meets Stewie from the present (if you remember Stewie said that he travelled forward in time to Christmas). This is how Stewie (present) gets his time-machine back and thus brings Brian back to life.

I bet you all it will be one of these 2 options.

Told you...

I would bet next episode, Stewie would go and try to get Vinnie too..

Because I remember hearing that Vinnie would still be included in about the next 4 to 5 episodes.

Ha! What an idiot.

I guess they could just get the bottom removed if they so desired. The work on Brian himself is not bad. In fact, luckily for them, they could probably alter it convincingly...just lengthen the ends of the banner, add a B and an N (which would be partially underneath his hand) and then easily change the P into an A, and you've got his name.

So there's going to be a Family Guy version of The Simpsons: Tapped Out.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/03/13/first-in-game-images-from-family-guy-mobile-game





(insert joke about Family Guy ripping off The Simpsons)

Meh, I might get it just out of boredom. Already spend enough time playing Tapped Out a day, but it might be fun to play for a few days, if just to see what characters and references are put into it.

If half the fun of the game are the characters and references, then I have no problem with a game ripping off another.

Like for example, maybe I wanted to play SSB with Sony characters.  Too bad it didn't turn out all that well.

The new episode has a pretty bland plot idea.

You may think that I would like this episode since C.J. Spiller and Mario Williams made a small cameo in the episode but the episode's plot was pretty beige and bland.

Peter and co. trying to stop God from making the Patriots constantly lose?

Don't worry, I wasn't thinking that.  I had no idea who they were until I googled them, nor did I know that you liked football.  smile
