We thought that Brian Griffin was dead during the sixth episodes of the Family Guy‘s new season but we was wrong. After an entire episodes without Brian and with Vinny, Seth MacFarlane decided to eliminate Vinny from the series and to take back Brian.
I have to admit that I quiet enjoy the present of Vinny in the series, a new character is simply a good idea because, after the Diane Simmons’ death and the return of Glenn’s father/mother, nothing happened in the series. Maybe the idea to kill Brian was to strong for the audience because everybody loves Brian. I think that Vinny was a good character and, maybe, the autors would have to introduce Vinny as Glenn’s new dog or Joe’s new dog. But, this is only my opinion.
