Speed with Guy Martin - Brian Griffin - Netflix

Brian Griffin is a fictional character from the American animated television series Family Guy. An anthropomorphic white dog voiced by Seth MacFarlane, he is one of the show's main characters as a member of the Griffin family. He primarily works in the series as a less-than-adept writer struggling to find himself, attempting essays, novels, screenplays, and newspaper articles. He first appeared on television, along with the rest of the family, in a 15-minute short on December 20, 1998. Brian was created and designed by MacFarlane himself. MacFarlane was asked to pitch a pilot to the Fox Broadcasting Company, based on The Life of Larry and Larry & Steve, two shorts made by MacFarlane featuring a middle-aged character named Larry and an intellectual dog, Steve. After the pilot was given the green light, the Griffin family appeared in the episode “Death Has a Shadow”. Brian's appearance is a redesign of Steve the dog from MacFarlane's previous show. Brian has been featured in many items of merchandise for Family Guy, and he is considered to be one of the show's biggest merchandising icons. He has also made crossover appearances in the other MacFarlane-produced shows, such as American Dad! and The Cleveland Show. As a character, Brian has been very well received by critics and fans. When Brian was killed off in the season 12 episode “Life of Brian”, the events of the episode received substantial attention from the media and elicited strongly negative reactions from fans of the show. Brian subsequently returned two episodes later, in “Christmas Guy”, after Stewie travels back in time to save him.

Speed with Guy Martin - Writing career - Netflix

Brian is an aspiring but struggling writer – this is said to be a reference to Snoopy from Peanuts. Brian is unemployed, but he is often seen writing various novels, screenplays or essays. His difficult writing career is used as a recurring joke throughout the series. In the episode “Play it Again, Brian”, Brian won an award for an essay he wrote, though he later admits that he plagiarized the piece. Brian has written since college, as told in “Brian Griffin's House of Payne”, in which his TV drama pilot is accepted (and then drastically amended) by a local studio. In the episode “Movin' Out”, Brian starts writing his book Faster Than The Speed of Love, which is revealed to be a rip-off of the Iron Eagle films, specifically the third one. In the episode “420”, Brian finally publishes his novel Faster Than the Speed of Love, and the novel is shipped, but it is critically panned and does not sell a single copy. In the episode “Dog Gone”, he receives an invitation (from the Rhode Island Society for Special Literary Excellence) to an award ceremony celebrating his novel. Brian, convinced that he is a great writer, attempts to gain the family's interest in this piece of news but fails to do so. Once he arrives at the “award ceremony”, however, he discovers that he has misunderstood the meaning of the word “special”. Later in the episode “Brian Griffin's House of Payne”, he writes a television script entitled “What I Learned on Jefferson Street”, and it was shown to a TV network who picked it up after reading it. Although the script was good, the finished product was not, as James Woods intervened and turned Brian's script into a farcical comedy piece. In the episode “Brian Writes a Bestseller”, Brian writes a bestselling self-help book, Wish It, Want It, Do It, which he wrote in a few hours. The book is an immediate success, but Brian lets the fame go to his head. He eventually causes the downfall of his book's popularity, and things go back to normal. It is mentioned again to get a girl in “Yug Ylimaf”. Brian's latest literary attempt came in the episode “Brian's Play”, where Brian writes a play entitled A Passing Fancy. The play becomes very popular in Quahog; however, Brian is upset when he realizes that Stewie had since written a play which was better than his. Stewie's play was eventually shown on Broadway. Brian became depressed by this, as he only wanted to be a good writer for the few years which remain of his life, and not have to be overshadowed by Stewie, who has his whole life ahead of him.
