Well, Cerebus kinda wins that one, doesn't he?

Yes, we all made sure to point out that Stewie did destroy his time machine. Of course, that didn't account for all the wacky rules of time travel that pop into this show. And sure enough, Stewie bumped into a future version of himself fiddling around with a return pad, which allowed him to go back and save Brian. And thus (two episodes later), all is at it was.

There's a small bit to feel uncomfortable about here. I cringed when Brian pointed out that any other family would have simply threw up their hands and gotten another dog, which is yet another reminder that this show's main characters aren't half as likable as they used to be.

But other than that, we got swerved...and in a good way. They really had me going and, as mentioned before, I can't remember the last time there was this much buzz surrounding FG. Everything played out kinda perfectly, right down to Seth MacFarlane knowing just when to pull the plug on Vinnie (who showed real potential to overstay his welcome) and go back to the status quo.

What say you all? I kinda liked this.

Speak for yourself. Only a fool looks for continuity in an American prime-time cartoon. The reset button is rarely never hit (Maude dying on The Simpsons is a notable exception).

My GF read about it on her twitter as it happened and she yelled across the house "You called it. Nerd rage is afoot!" when Brian was brought back.

We changed channels as soon as "LOST" hit the screen in the finale and caught the confetti and the final notes of her victory song.
