Brian’s coming back to life. After thousands (hopefully not millions) of people petitioned and cried about one of Family Guy‘s core characters, Brian, the Griffin family dog, was killed off by the show a few weeks ago, is coming back to the show.
While it’s possible that this was an organic groundswell…no. Actually, that isn’t possible at all. It was a marketing stunt that the producers knew would get people talking about a show that people weren’t really talking about much recently.
I say that because of the curious fact that Brian’s name was listed in future episodes of the show, which is weird to include a dead character as a central plot point for a TV or movie, unless you’re talking about the City Slickers 2: The Legend of Curly’s Gold, in which case, pull up a chair, and let’s talk about it.
