    That's an official video. So are they trying really hard to make everyone think that Brian really is gone and then bring him back later this season?

    it's just unnecessarily dramatic and excessively introspective, not to mention his death scene is disturbingly detailed

    i'm talking about the gore of it. you remember when Family Guy had Stewie beat up Brian for not having his money? how it was a gag that started with a funny proposition, then escalated into gruesomeness, and you kept watching it get progressively more brutal, with your laughter eventually sustaining from shock alone?

    same level of detail here. it's really hard to take this seriously when they used to have scenes with this same kind of content among the top Family Guy moments for comedic value. it's sad to think just how clearly the writers missed the chance to be tasteful in, believe it or not, toning down the gore of this segment

    Honestly, it's been shown that adding dramatic moments to animated sitcoms isn't an unobtainable feat. It's been done well in The Simpsons & Futurama.

    Not to shit on Family Guy (I don't need to everybody else is doing it for me), but any serious moment I remember just didn't come off as sincere. Even Quagmire vs Brian felt shoehorned after a while.

    family guy was a good show until they focused a little too much much on story and preachy politics

    it stopped being funny after around the 4th season

    Ohh wow. If I was with a guy and that was what he was wearing, it'd be one of the biggest turnoffs possible I think. I'd probably just laugh my way out.

    Someone should count how many times the "palms open upwards" animation has been used in the entire show's run.

    Please, they'd commit suicide the moment they lost count and realized they'd have to start from the very start.

    Anyone remember the episode that ended with Brian pushing Stewie in front of a moving bus?
    I think it was one of the "lel random moments" like it didn't really happen or something I don't know what's really happening in show and what's not so :/.

    I was going to put it down to facepunch bashing family guy, well just because it was family guy. But i just finished watching the episode and its terrible, there just seems to be a complete lack of emotion in everything they say or do about the death, turning it into just another gambit in the episodes story.

    The writing really has gone downhill massively.

    Seth Macfarlane is a marketing genius. The fact people are still talking about it almost a week on shows its a great marketing ploy (which is all it really is).

    apparently the universe in family guy disliked brian so much that it completely disregarded the laws of the universe to ensure that a new dog was there to take brians place

    I don't blame him, he'd be making thousands of dollars from a show that he hardly puts any work into any more.

    If the intro to the second and third Star Wars specials are any indication, he really doesn't.

    IIRC, the intro of the third special ranted that they were only making it because Fox wouldn't let Seth make Ted until they made a third Star Wars special.

    Dunno if that was a joke or not, tho.
