  • Pretty Dog Gone good.

    This episode was pretty good and I thought Brian was pretty likeable in this episode. Yes, he did drive drunk (or was he just tired?) thus getting another dog killed, yet felt remorse for doing so. What I also liked was how Brian spread the word about animal rights and how Brian pretended to be dead. I did feel bad for Brian in this episode, who was being burdened by guilt, as well as the dog that got killed.

    The subplot with the maid was good too and I liked how she spent the night, just because it was raining and how she told Chris that his fat would keep him warm. I was like, "But isn't she fat (Okay that may have been a bit offensive) I also liked how she wanted Brian to go out of the house.

    Other things that I liked about this episode were, Joe sleep dragging and that there wasn't Meg abuse. I can't think of any thing bad about this episode, so it gets a 10/10.moreless

    After Brian accidentally kills another dog, and no one seems to care, he tries to convince everyone that they should value the life of a dog the same as a human. Meanwhile, Lois hires a maid who doesn't listen to Peter. This was a much better episode over the mess of the previous episode. Consuela's plot was funnier here. There were humorous moments like Brian accidentally killed a dog while drunk (although the scene was bloody), Joe sleep dragging at night, the whole maid plot (Consuela kicking Brian out, Chris trying to touch Consuela's breasts, etc), and a couple more. The people not caring about the value of the life of a dog was the reason why it wasn't a 10. Overall this was a superb episode and it is one my favorite for the season. 9/10moreless

    the beginning was disturbing, but the episode was kind of funny until the dramatic end.

    Brian is upset when he runs over and kills another dog, and he is even more upset by the fact that nobody cares. This leads him to wonder if his life has any meaning. Does it? Or does he live just to live?



    Good episode. The maid sub plot annoyed me. I know the point was to be annoying, or I am assuming that was the point, but still. I really liked the ending when Peter and the family think Brian is dead; it is a nice moment that shows they do care for him, and it is one of my favorite scenes in the show. Overall this is a nice episode and my final grade is a B- or so, I think is fair.moreless

    • Brian: You killed a dog and burned down a liquor store just to prove a point!?
      Stewie: Don't worry, he was a stray.
      Brian: Oh.

  • NOTES (1)

    • There is an alternate scene at the part where Brian releases the dog from his leash at the ice cream shop which can be seen in the Family Guy, Volume Eight. In it, after Brain releases the dog, it just walks away. Then a man and his son, who turn out to the dog's owners, come out of the ice cream shop and notice the dog is gone. The man then starts yelling at his son, thinking that he didn't tie the leash to the pole tight enough, and the son apologizes in Stewie's voice. Brian notices this, and Stewie tells him that that is one of his "side voices." Which could be a reference to the many characters that Seth MacFarlane voices on the show.
