The opening "crawl text" makes mention of the HBO movie Gia (1998). Mila Kunis, who voices Meg, appeared in "Gia" as the young version of the title character. See more »


Han Solo (Peter) is clearly seen taking the couch. He gets it wedged onto the space ship & stands there just holding it because it's stuck.

When shooting at the tie fighters, you can clearly see the Millennium Falcon no longer has the loading door down with the couch on it as if he pushed the wedged couch off the side to run in & start firing. When attacking the Death Star, Han Solo (peter) & Chewbacca (Brian) are sitting on the couch firing their weapons as if it was never thrown off their ship. See more »

Title card/crawl: A long time ago, but somehow in the future... It is a period of civil war and renegade paragraphs floating through space. There's cool space battles, and the bad guy is the good guy's dad. But you don't find that out 'til the next episode.

"Family Guy: Blue Harvest"...
1 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was nothing short of TV gold.

Every once in awhile I see something on television that is pure magic from start to finish, and this particular show was one of them...

This episode was an homage to the film, and even though they "Family-Guy'ed" it with their edgy humour, it was still a brilliant piece of work, with some of the scenes being almost shot-for-shot from the movie. It is obvious that Seth MacFarlane and the rest of the creators are die-hard Star Wars fans.

And it was neat to see they went with the original version, not the George Lucas-ized, Greedo-shoots-first version.
