[first lines]
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?

first rate episode/DVD
27 January 2008 | by rodgercolmarSee all my reviews

fan of Family Guy? remember the first Star Wars? well then, you are in for a treat - the one liners are gold, the characters are priceless - R2D2 getting high "I could really go for some Tatooine, Wind and Fire right now" takes a sec, but every laugh is a great laugh - well done guys!!

watch it at any cost, and enjoy

check out the credits too, the 'Red Leaders' are listed - Mick Hucknell said his one line and was out

Red Ochtobah, shtanding by = priceless

all in all, you will all have a pile of lines as your msn tags after watching this - mcfarlane at his best so far
