"Family Guy" fans refuse to just sit back and accept what happened during Sunday's episode.
During the Fox series' all-new episode Sunday, viewers were hit with a shocking death that nobody would have ever seen coming--Brian, the smart, funny and witty family dog, was hit by a car and killed, and as you might have expected, that wasn't OK with a lot of people.
So the fans decided to do something about it.
Aaron Thompson of Tuscaloosa, Al., launched a Change.org petition early Monday to bring the beloved dog voiced by Seth MacFarlane back to life, and to date, the petition has collected over 35,000 signatures.

"Brian Griffin was an important part of our viewing experience," Thompson wrote on the site. "He added a witty and sophisticated element to the show. 'Family Guy' and Fox Broadcasting will lose viewers if Brian Griffin is not brought back to the show."
The petition links to a Facebook page dedicated to the late character (RIP Brian Griffin From "Family Guy"), which has already gained more than 386,000 likes.
During Sunday night's "Life of Brian" episode, the show killed off the sophisticated talking dog, when he was struck by a car and run over as he prepared to play in the street with Stewie. Although there was hope he'd survive, his injuries proved to be too severe.
While I like the show, because they aren't afraid to touch any issue, I don't see where this is a big issue.
First of all, this isn't the first time people have gotten mad over a show and done this.
I think there are way better proofs out there that we have hit the crapper!
35,000 doesn't seem like a lot to me?edit on 26-11-2013 by chiefsmom because: sp

I mean, no offense but...how sad is the world that people can't enjoy shows and get their minds off the terror of the world for five seconds. If people are sad that a dog on a T.V. show died and want to petition to bring them back then that is their business. I guess you're one of those people that get annoyed at parties when people aren't thinking of the issues at hand enough and are .....gasp.... BEING CAREFREE???

This is how you know the USA is going to ####? I'm sorry but I was hoping for something much more interesting than a massively popular show losings its best character.
How bout the fact that the coming generation is egotistical, materialistic, and brainwashed?
Bread and circuses man. Tried and true distraction. On a related note my Niners crushed the Redskins last night. See?

The point is that something like this shouldn't even get the effort of a petition. It's a cartoon dog.... You can be okay with it all you want, but I'm sure a person with their sh*t together isn't wasting time on a petition like this. So yes, I'm judging this group as a whole, because I believe know person in their right mind would go out of there way to sign/care for a petition about a dead cartoon dog... And I feel that with the amount of issues in this country, people shouldn't waste one iota of effort on something so meaningless..edit on 26-11-2013 by jhn7537 because: (no reason given)
