Okay, so I’m not really a Family Guy fan. Much. Well, ish. I like Stewie and Brian, and the rest of it disturbs me, most of the time. I had to sit down and watch the Star Wars spoof episodes, though, and so I sat down and watched the first two episodes, Blue Harvest, and Something, Something, Something Dark Side, covering episodes IV and V, respectively. Stewie (the baby, for those of you less familiar) is Darth Vader, which is probably enough to watch this for in the first place. It’s a lot of fun to see characters from one franchise so seamlessly mocking another, and a lot of the explosions from the cartoon are actual footage from the Star Wars films. There’s a lot of respect here (it’s Star Wars, after all) and some inner-show teasing as well, as Peter (the father) and Chris argue over the fact that Robot Chicken (which was created by Seth Green, voice of Chris) may or may not have done a better job of this.
I really can’t say a whole lot about this. You know the story, after all. I really enjoyed it. There was a nice little twist of the ridiculous added on top of a storyline that everybody knows inside and out. I give it an A.
