Trivia

At the end of this episode, when showing the Rebel fleet, in the background behind and beneath the medical frigate are a B-wing Fighter and an E-wing Fighter. In Star Wars, the B-wing didn't appear until the 3rd film, Star Wars: Episode VI - The Return of the Jedi (1983), and the E-wing only appears in Expanded Universe materials (books, comics, video games, etc.).

Twice the length, half the material
4 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the second of Family Guy's double length episodes, and like the first, Blue Harvest, is based on the Star Wars franchise. It should be a barrel of laughs but it is more like scraping the barrel.

The one thing which made Family Guy stand out from the crowd were its cutaways. These are entirely absent here. So too is that other mainstay of FG, the interplay between Brian and Stewie. Deprived of these sources of comedy, the writers fall back on the same old recycled gags and in-jokes which have worn so thin.

This was somewhat true of Blue Harvest too but that least managed to raise a few laughs. This present episode relies too much on audience recognition of its overly familiar characters and thinks that someone is going to think "oh look that's the evil monkey" and find that amusing in its self. Its not, its pure laziness.
