Comic Genius

With the release of its long awaited sequel, I thought I’d take a look back at one of the most hilarious comedy parodies in a very long time, the day Family Guy took the legendary Star Wars saga and turned it completely on its head. Yes, its Blue Harvest!

Family Guy is without a doubt one of the most popular TV shows around, now in its eighth season, its hilarious characters combined with controversial flashbacks was the perfect blend to create a comedy sensation. Combining all of these factors with the classic Star Wars story and icons is certainly perfect.

The first chapter can be picked up fairly cheaply now, with its sequel ‘something…. something… dark side’ being slightly more pricey. As you’ve probably guessed they follow the original saga, poking fun at George Lucas’s plan to start the story at chapter 4 – whilst using a typical Peter Griffin style speech for the opening titles. They compact the original film into around 40 minutes, and those extreme fans that know the story inside out will realize that no key points have been left out.

That’s one of my favorite scenes from the first installment, showing how their famous cut scenes with famous and cult figures are not left out in the Star Wars universe. Its a great laugh, fairly cheap and a perfect piss take to a series loved by so many people, combining such popular entertainment is a perfect mix for hilarity!
