EXCELLENT....Much Much better than the first Star Wars Episode.
21 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I actually downloaded this a few weeks ago, but just now watched it. It is MUCH MUCH more better and funnier than the first Star Wars episode. Without giving any of it away or spoiling it for anyone, I just wanted to say that every character that's in the regular Family Guy series has some part in this episode. Whether it's for the whole entire episode, or just a few seconds.

Plus a few cameo appearances.

It seems as though much thought was put into writing this episode. The last few Family Guy shows, in my opinion, seemed to be just "thrown out there", without a care so to say.
