I’ve been a huge Family Guy fan since I first caught a bit of an episode on TV late one night way back when. When the news hit that they were cancelling the show, there was a part of me that thought, “there goes another great show”. However, after the huge success it had on DVD it was brought back and it’s stronger than ever these days.
Also a number of Family Guy skits come from parodies of Star Wars, so it was only a matter of time that they ripped out a special Star Wars episode, which the other skit comedy show, Robot Chicken, had already done to great fanfare.
This was a great parody episode and in full HD some of the animation almost looked like the actual movie. There were of course some low moments that didn’t hit the mark, but overall it was a great homage to the movie and felt like a solid episode of Family Guy. Most of the characters made a cameo and there were even a few special guests along for the ride.
8 out of 10 from me!!!
