Nate's DVD Collection ~ Family Guy: Star Wars Two Disc Set

Updated on March 15, 2011

A Long, Long Time Ago, yet somehow in the Future...

 

It's Star Wars, Family Guy style. After several seasons of Star Wars cutaways and gags, the people who hold the reigns on Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane were concerned that George Lucas would eventually sue 20th Century Fox if he didn't have their permission. Mind you, these were the same people that decided not to retain the merchandising rights when Star Wars premiered in the 70's. Not the kind of people you'd trust with your kids on a field trip.


Well it turns out that not only was Lucas okay with all of the jokes, but he has every episode of Family Guy saved on his TiVo. And he gave the go ahead for Seth MacFarlane and company to do a complete parody of the original Holy Trilogy.


Blue Harvest parodies Episode IV: A New Hope

Something, Something, Something, Dark Side Parodies Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back


That about sums it up. Both hour long “episodes” feature the Family Guy cast as the Star Wars characters we know and love. (IE: Chris as Luke Skywalker)

What I Like About It

 


Seth MacFarlane can do no American Dad in my eyes. I meant he can do no wrong. I don't like American Dad. Still, you have to give the guy credit. When a lot of guys would have thrown in the towel Seth continuously breaks down these little barriers that the guys in the suits throw at him.


Show canceled? The fans saved it and Seth and Co. have repaid us profusely.

Censors on your ass? Use the DVD to give us an uncensored soundtrack and show us the stuff they didn't want us to see on TV.

Censors still on your ass about all the Star Wars gags? Get the okay from the man himself and produce two amazing episodes the man himself actually praises and enjoys in the comfort of his own ranch.


I mean it. There is not a moment in these two DVD's that I did not laugh my ass off at every little inside joke, every commentary, every subtle jab and every cutaway. The most priceless moment? Han Solo and Chewie (Peter and Brian respectively) steal a couch from the Death Star's garbage dump and are still trying to figure out how to get it onto the Millennium Falcon with the Storm Troopers firing on them.


The second most priceless moment is at the little back and forth with Peter and Chris (AKA, Seth McFarlane and Seth Green) over which was better, the Family Guy Star Wars or Robot Chicken's.

What I Didn't Like

That I have to wait two more years for Episode VI to come out. Oh and American Dad. I mentioned that I don't like American Dad, right?

Can My Kids Watch This?

 

 


If your kids watch Family Guy all ready there's nothing different about this. However the language track on the DVD's are uncensored and that's about the only difference. Without having seen these episodes on TV I can assume there were some scenes that the censors didn't allow on Adult Swim.
