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. And the hot chick is really the sister of the good guy, but they don't know it and they kiss. Which is kind of messed up. I mean, what if they had done it instead of just kissed?

About Family Guy
24 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Hi, I wanted to comment on the season premiere of the Family Guy. Wow, what an episode. Not to give too much away, any fan of the show will love this episode. I thought the animation was first rate. It reminded me of the animation of the Simpsons movie. Some scenes were pretty much third dimensional. I liked the shots of the planets and of the spaceships. Also, it was a pretty accurate take off of the first Star Wars movie, which I saw as a kid. I was wondering who going to play Obi Wan Kenobi and I was right on my guess, the old man pervert, and Stewie as Darth Vader was hilarious too. I did notice that Meg wasn't involved though. Also, I liked the Robot Chicken conversation at the end, with Chris and Peter arguing about it. That's an in joke, because Seth Green is a creator of Robot Chicken and he is the voice of Chris. I would say that was Family Guy at it's best last night. There are so many bad shows on TV nowadays, it's great to see there is some good shows left that actually believe in good and creative writing and film-making. I am so glad that shows like Simpsons, Family Guy and South Park are still around. They are a ray of hope in a vast wasteland of mediocrity, bad acting and writing. God, Simpsons has been on for 18 years and I still get laughs out of it.
