this is, hands down, the greatest injustice of episode writing history
25 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seth Macfarlane, why did you have to kill Brian Griffin? He is the greatest cartoon character of all time! You have made the greatest injustice of television history. I would rather sing a song with Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black. Vinny is just a steaming pile of dog poop character who has a tough guy attitude who is a perfect match with Stewie. The problem with Vinny that replaces Brain is he does not have any capabilities like Brain whatsoever. If Vinny should make any more main appearances, the show should expect a 3 month hiatus or a possible cancellation ASAP. Vinny should be the Johnny Test and the Citizen Kane of, if not, the horrible characters of animation history.

to conclude this review, i am not watching family guy anymore and so is everyone else unless Seth Macfarlane revives Brian Griffin to reunite with the Griffins.
