'Family Guy' Killed Off a Major Character

 

In its twelfth season, it seems like there are two camps concerning Family Guy: the first is made up of those who still watch the show, and the second contains people who don't care about it at all. If, for some reason, you occupy the middle ground?don't watch the show anymore but desperately want to know what the Griffin clan is up to?here's who died on Family Guy tonight.

 

It was Brian, the talking dog.

 

Following some time machine hijinks, Brian and Stewie?a talking baby who sometimes says adult things that babies shouldn't say?decided to destroy the time machine. Later, while playing street hockey, Brian got hit by a car. He died. Because Stewie had destroyed his time machine, Brian is seemingly dead forever. The Griffins then adopted another talking dog, but this one has a New York accent.

 

Executive producer Steve Callaghan told E! that "we thought it could be a fun way to shake things up. As soon as this idea came up, we started talking about what the next couple episodes could be and we got very excited about the way this change will affect the family dynamics and the characters." They also thought that Brian would be a good candidate to get hit by a car because he is a dog and "It seemed more in the realm of a reality that a dog would get hit by a car." (Just as a reminder: this episode also involved time travel, so, yes, realism.)

 

Logistically, it would also make sense to kill off one of the Seth MacFarlane-voiced characters, since he's moved on to other projects such as an immigration cartoon and the cultural low bar that is Dads. The new dog, Vinnie, is voiced by Tony Sirico, better known as Paulie Walnuts from The Sopranos.

Hmm, I would've said that's one less reason to watch Family Guy, but frankly, there weren't any reasons left.

I don't still watch Family Guy, but it seems stupid to put a spoiler in the title   :/.

Family Guy doesn't make sense without the dog for me.

Family Guy has gone a bit stale recently but I have to agree that the Brian/Stewie episodes were quite fun. We'll have to see what happens I guess!

I honestly think Peter is what ruins the show, if it was stewie and brian the show would be fine..... they try to make peter too much of a idiot to make it worth anything anymore

I can't believe family guy has been since 1999, and so has SpongeBob.

I would hope he will return one day, maybe there will be a twist like Brian was one of a twin or something

Thought the episode was a bit rushed and not enough time for Brian's death to sink in before moving onto the new dog :/

^^^This, the backlash from this will be so huge they will have to do this to keep the show going.

This won't return their viewers, it'll just reaffirm their decision to stop watching it. I used to love Family Guy, it was my go-to-show, now it's my ugh-change-the-channel show.
