The guy suffered from depression his entire life and was quite open about it. He did not require a fictional cartoon to send him off the deep end.


So, there's a good chance of this:

We also need to know whether or not he was taking SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor) pills, which are known to cause suicide



Warning labels included with these pills state that they can lead to suicide, yet the mainstream media under-reports this glaring fact.

But the rerun was shown and the news came during the rerun.

It does beg the question why the episode was written in the first place. Is it just a coincidence, or not.

I find that an infinitely more plausible explanation for his demise than a cartoon.

Yeah? And? He was dead for hours by that point and this was on the other side of the planet, not exactly San Francisco time.

Yes, but I'm interested in the episode writers and the news media.

I'm not talking about a conspiracy to kill him, I'm talking about the content of the episode, the possible psychological operation being done on the public, and the news media's connection to it.

The credits will tell you who wrote that nearly a year before it aired.

What psychological operation?

Wow. A whole year before it aired the first time, or before the rerun in question?

I don't have a specific theory in mind for this case in point.

I'm just talking about the general technique used by the powers that be (the shadow/parallel government) to do psychological operations on the public through television and cinema.

Prior to the original airing. The lead time on network shows like this is close to a year (usually nine months).

Topical jokes can be inserted in with the concurrent animation but the working script is done well before that. There are plenty of interviews with McFarlane on the production aspects of the show.

Edit to add:

MacFarlane has explained that normally it takes 10 months to produce an episode because the show uses hand-drawn animation. The show rarely comments on current events for this reason.

Well, in that case I need to bow out since I believe in neither.

Maybe the writers of the episode knew that because Robin Williams suffered from depression, that there was a good chance he was taking SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor) pills, which can cause suicide, so they wrote the episode based on that knowledge.

What remains would be the timing of the rerun and the news media announcement of the event which happened the day before, correct?

Have you actually watched the episode? Williams' depression and Peter Griffins desire to commit suicide were not in any way related.

No.

But in my opinion they would not have to be related.

The important thing is that Robin Williams figures in to the episode. His face does appear, correct? The show is about an attempted suicide. The network announces the real suicide during the episode.

Look at the reaction the BBC got after they announced the death.

Despite the fact that it wasn't Robin Williams attempting suicide in the episode.

Why did Peter Griffins want to commit suicide?

You really need to watch the episode to gain some valuable perspective.

Honestly I don't think I could stomach it.

I don't watch TV, and from what I can gather, this show would infuriate me.

Then how can you accurately discuss it if you have no idea what it is about?

Because the OP says what it is about.

I know that there's something to do with Robin Williams in the episode.

The something sounds nutty to me, and if someone would care to put it in their own words, I would like to hear it.

However, the important thing is that there is an attempted suicide, Robin Williams figures in to the episode, and the news announcement of the real suicide occurs during the episode.

This is basically akin to having a debate about a book review and not having read the book.

Have at it.
