Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (14 ):
Kids say (37 ):

Viewers may be surprised by this extended episode of the animated sitcom that sometimes seems so full of pop-culture references and mini-parodies that the stories barely hold together. Not surprisingly, series creator Seth MacFarlane and the vocal cast seem to be having tons of fun with the Force, delivering big laughs at light speed; too bad they end the thing on a somewhat sour note, with young Chris Griffin/Luke Skywalker calling his storyteller father "a big jerk" and leaving (this is an inside-inside joke about Peter/Seth MacFarlane belittling cable TV satire Robot Chicken, done by Chris' voiceover actor Seth Green).

What's unexpected are some sequences that don't have gags at all but are just dead-on recreations of classic Lucasfilm moments, as the gag script follows the original storyline faithfully. Revelation: The Family Guy gang actually loves and respects George Lucas' history-making saga, and this spoof is as much a tribute as it is puns and non-sequitur references to Sanford and Son and Deal or No Deal. Among the DVD extras is a sit-down dialogue between Seth MacFarlane and George Lucas, who says his staff got a kick out of Blue Harvest.
