As a fan of the Family Guy and Star Wars it was just AWESOME to see Star Wars done in the Family Guy animation style (officially known as Blue Harvest). Lots of great site gags and rye humor and unfortunately a lot of duds too…
On the plus side:
Jumping to hyperspace outsite of Tatooine when Han (Peter) says Hyperspace always looks so freaky and we get the regular lightspeed jump and then DR WHO!! complete with Who soundtrack and the ultimate Doctor Tom Baker.
Also really great when they get to detention block AA23 and Han takes the mike and says…”slight weapons malfunction..we’re all fine here how are you?” and then we get a whole converstation.
Luke entering the princesses cell and her saying .” who are you aren’t a little fat for a stormtrooper.” And luke saying ..”..you stuckup Bitch!”
Han (Peter) in the shooting pod humming along the John Williams music was also classic..
AND to top it all off the end where they take shots at the Robot Chicken version of Star Wars.
So yes this was a Family Guy show for the ages..but no not the best Star Wars parody ever, Stuey as Vader was VERY VERY weak which was a tremendous dis-appointment and all in all there have been other...funnier standalone Star Wars parody moments in Family Guy
Family Guy – Star Wars Edition Season Premiere September 7, 2007Posted by showmescifi in Family Guy, Sci Fi, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi, star trek tng, Star Wars, star wars legacy, starwars, weird al.
There have been alot of great Family Guy Star Wars ‘spoof’ moments over the course of this great Fox show.
The upcoming season premiere looks like it could top them all with a full hour long Star Wars inspired spoof.
After the Griffin’s lose power, Peter entertains the family with the greatest story ever told…the story of Star Wars! After Princess Leia (Lois) comes under siege by Darth Vader (Stewie) and his evil Storm Troopers, C-3PO (Quagmire) and R2-D2 (Cleveland) escape to find the only person who can help the Rebel Alliance. On their quest thorough the desert planet of Tatooine, C-3PO and R-2D2 find extra help in Obi-Wan Kenobi (Herbert), Luke Skywalker (Chris), Han Solo (Peter) and Chewbacca (Brian) and head back to battle the Death Star in an epic intergalactic fight to the death in the “Blue Harvest” episode of FAMILY GUY on Sunday, Sept. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT.)
Here’s the preview that aired some time ago (thnx to jedi insider)
Painkiller Jane – CANCELLED! August 15, 2007Posted by showmescifi in Daleks, Family Guy, Kristanna Loken, pain killer jane, painkiller jane, Sci Fi, science fiction, scifi, smallville, star trek tng, starwars.
Yes Kristanna Loken is awesome. BUT Painkiller Jane on SciFi really really really sucked.
And now the network if finally admitting it too and canceling the series after just one season.
Will anyone miss it though? I watched two or three episodes but then ran out of bags in which to heave my disgust.
Why did it the show fail?
Easy – there was no plot.

Family Guy has done alot of great Star Wars parodies over the years…But never before have I ever seen them all in one master compilation.
Here it is..and it is impressive…MOST Impressive.
