Promoted on the DVD Something, Something, Something Dark Side as Family Guy: We Have a Bad Feeling About This, based on a line that appears in every Star Wars film. The new title is a line spoken by Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). See more »
Oh dear. In Peter's own words, "For crying out loud, somebody throw a pie!"
This third entry is joke-lite. The recipe seems to have been: copy-and-paste some clips directly from the Star Wars movie, manipulate them to look cartoonish, and then look for places to put jokes. Then look harder because Fox is pressuring you, then give up.
In the "scrolling-up text" at the start, it even says this is a poor show. They're basically saying "sorry this one's not funny. But you've just parted with $30 and that's the important thing". If I'd paid for this I would be seriously upset.
There's a 'head-nodding' skit which is the least funny thing I've ever seen on a Family Guy episode. It feels like it lasts 10 minutes. It doesn't work at all, and it feels like filler.
Don't bother buying this DVD. Wait a month or two until this is on some comedy channel. Or find it in a bargain bin. Or just find it in someone's bin.
