Something, Something, Something, Dark Side
Something, Something, Something, Dark Side is the second instalment of the Family Guys take on the original Star Wars trilogy. The first, Blue Harvest, was a critical success, but this sequel episode wasn’t received as positively.
Although it can’t be denied that the episode is good for a few laughs, it just isn’t at the same standard as its predecessor. Brian and Peter as Chewie and Hans, respectively, was one of the best things in Blue Harvest, yet it was practically absent from this episode.
I did enjoy when they point out certain movie rules, for example; Look we got four or five of the main characters on board I think we’ll be fine’. As well as the return of some Family Guy jokes, Consuela the maid, the big chicken, I’m not going to say who it is, but someone’s going to do the hurt knee thing and Meg gets told to shut up.
Not the best episode, but it’s still good for providing some much needed laughs. Although I recommend watching it on TV rather than buying it, 45 minutes just isn’t a long enough episode to warrant buying it on its own.
