20 minutes of repeat...,
This review is from: Family Guy - Something Something Something Dark Side [DVD] (DVD)
There has been a recurring problem with Seth' McFarlane's Family Guy since season 3. The issue is one of heavy receptiveness with the humour being delivered repeatedly in an even less that subtle way. The second part of the Star War's parody has got to be one of the best (and subsequently worst) examples of this. Essentially it's very lazy writing of samey fart jokes, gay jokes and reappearing gags. The AT-AT doing nearly a minutes worth of the knee joke that was stretched out for Peter originally and is now annoying, anything but funny.
There are some other stereotypical jokes that will provide a smile, or chuckle at best. Meg as the monsters, Neil Goldman as Calrissian, Giant Chicken as Boba Fett. These do not make the situation better though because it's all been done, whether the characters are dressed up as Star War's characters' or not, the joke production stays the same which really bored me.
I will admit there is one original scene which I felt was very funny. The Millennium Falcon fleeing the Empire with a Wildest Police videos commentary. That is the only one I can think of though.
If you are a die hard Family Guy fan you will already own this but I wish people would not buy this as it would actually send a message that people are getting tired of such laziness.
We are to blame for Seth's attitude towards his work because there is no dip or cut-off. If its rubbish it still is purchased. I will not be buying anymore of this parody series myself, I will only catch it if it's on TV because this is not worth my money.
Really poor effort.
