3.0 out of 5 stars Something something something isn't right..., 15 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Family Guy - Something Something Something Dark Side [DVD] (DVD)
Family Guy Presents Blue Harvest [DVD] [2007] was a brilliantly funny parody of Star Wars IV: A New Hope [DVD] [1977] [Region 1] [NTSC] and had me laughing practically all the way through. Needless to say I was excited to hear about McFarlane's next release, Something Something Something Darkside.

Honestly, the opening credits were the funniest part for me, and the rest was merely season 7 recycled; same gags, same old. The volume of unoriginal content really dampened the laughs from start to finish, leaving me rather disappointed. Moreover, the cut-aways are almost entirely exclusive to American audiences, and make little sense over here in the UK, making me suspect that they're merely compensation for a lack of primary plot material. The crown jewel in the humour department for Blue Harvest had to be the subtle mockery of the original storyline components of A New Hope, and they tried it again this time around, only it wasn't as funny.

Plot-wise, Dark Side is fun to follow and made for an enjoyable watch, but I don't think they quite hit the mark in terms of sharp, fast, consistent humour as they did so gloriously in their last offering. As a Family Guy fan I do recommend this DVD as it is good at the core, but don't raise your hopes too high on this one.
