Brian Griffin’s Death (Video)

 

I’m sure by now most of you have heard about the untimely death of one of TV’s beloved characters Brian Griffin. However, if you’re like me you were probably watching the Denver, New England game and missed what happened. Fear not because we have a video clip of his last moments on Family guy including what caused is death and his last words to the Griffin family. Now, I know there has been a lot of controversy with this decision by Seth MacFarlane but I have a feeling Brian is not gone forever.

Honestly the show’s entire dynamic really hinges on the relationship with Brian and Stewie. Not to mention Brian seems to be the glue that holds the entire family together. Besides that, Seth Macfarlane has no real reason to kill of Brian. He wasn’t an unpopular character though the show’s ratings may have gone down as a whole lately. The most interesting bit of news is that Tony Sirico who plays the voice of the Griffin’s new dog Vinny has only been signed for 6 episodes, with a stipulation that he may be written in for more or even a recurring role later on.This could possibly be because Vinny’s stay could be a short one and Brian might be written back in.

Only time will tell if this is really the end of Brian Griffin and if Vinny will be a good replacement for him. Right now it seems as though Seth MacFarlane is some what testing the waters to see what the fans reactions will be. I personally think he will bring Brian back in some form or another but a lot of people really believe he is gone forever. There is even a petition that has been started to “Bring Brian Back” that has over 50,000 supporters. As always we want to know what you think. Do you think Brian is gone for good or do you think he’ll be back sometime in the future. Leave us a comment below or on our Facebook page.

New Optimus Prime

The above cover of Empire Magazine gives us our first real look at the New and “Improved” Optimus Prime. I didn’t think it was possible but some how Michael Bay was actually able to make Optimus Prime look even worse in his new movie. I’ve always been of the mindset that when watching a Hollywood recreation of our favorite comic book or animated heroes that we should keep an open mind. Of course it’s not going to look exactly like the source material, but this is pretty much just a slap in the face to the original creators of Optimus Prime.

Optimus From First Films

He had such a classic look and design that (in my opinion) still stands the test of time. To me this doesn’t even look anything like Optimus Prime. Even the old look from Michael Bay’s first 3 films had a little bit of the G1 Prime in there, but now it’s practically all gone. Needless to say I am not a fan of his new look and only time will tell what the rest of the Autobots and Dinobots will look like in their robot mode. As far as the design aspect of him just being a robot I think he looks cool, just not as the leader of the Autobots.

Which leads me to the famous question; What are your thoughts Nerd Nation? Do you like this new look for Optimus Prime or would you have liked to see something a little more reminiscent of his original animated look? Let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below or on our Facebook page.
