FAMILY GUY - BLUE HARVEST
What better way to launch Family Guy's sixth season and commemorate Star Wars' 30th anniversary than with this double-length Very Special Episode, a full-scale, awesomely animated spoof that recasts George Lucas' saga with Family Guy's galaxy of characters: Chris (Seth Green) is Luke; Lois (Alex Borstein) is Princess Leia; Peter (Seth McFarlane) is Han Solo, but not, as expected, Jabba the Hut; Brian (Seth, again) is Chewbacca; Quagmire (and again, Seth) is C3PO; Cleveland is R2D2; Herbert, the creepy senior pedophile, is Obi-Wan (both voiced by Mike Henry); and, of course, Stewie (Seth, already) is Darth Vader ("My diapers have gone over to the dark side"). Poor Meg is reduced to a cameo as the hideous reptilian creature that haunts the garbage compactor. Blue Harvest is reverently faithful to A New Hope, while engaging in typical Family Guy pop-culture references (everything from those old Grey Poupon commercials to Doctor Who, Airplane, Dirty Dancing, and Deal or No Deal) and bizarre digressions (the iconic opening crawl detours into an appreciation of a "way naked" Angelina Jolie in Gia). Along for the wild ride are Judd Nelson, who contributes a voice cameo as John Bender for a Breakfast Club gag, Rush Limbaugh railing against futuristic affirmative action on Tatooine talk radio, and Beverly D'Angelo and Chevy Chase as the vacationing Griswolds observing the rebellion from their orbiting station wagon. A Star Wars spoof in 2007 isn't exactly uncharted territory. As Chris Griffin notes in this episode's final moments, Robot Chicken brilliantly did it months earlier (and let us not forget Mel Brooks' Spaceballs from 1987; or, on second thought...). But the Force is strong with Family Guy, and who could resist the opportunity to hear the Muzak playing in a Death Star elevator? --Donald Liebenson

It follows the basic story line of A New Hope but makes a joke out of everything. As with all Family Guy episodes, generally there's bound to be a few jokes that hit or miss with different people, but definitely if you're a fan of Family Guy you should check this extended episode out. On top of being extended, the animation is superior to the regular episodes
I don't want to spoil too much from this, so I'll just say it's really funny and you should definitely check it out. Had seen it on tv and just now bought it and really enjoy it.
The dvd also comes packed with special features for people who enjoy interviews and whatnot.
-Blue harvest DVD
-Digital copy disc.
-12 Family guy cards with 3-D image on back of them.
-Blue and red 3-D glasses.
-Family guy blue harvest XL teashirt. EPIC.
-And last is the dvd case it came in.
All this comes in a DVD case about 5 DVD cases wide! I am extremely satisfied with this product and can't think of any way they could have made a better offer. The Teashirt alone is worth what I paid for it. A Amazing deal for only 13$ + S&H (6$ish). To me the DVD was just a bonus. It worked perfectly as well. Hope this review will help future buyers. I strongly recommend this collection. For all us family guy viewers out there. This is one not to miss out on.
But the story... they weren't too inventive, really. Basically copying the original story line. I had to buy this because I am a great fan of Star Wars and parody. But in terms of originality, I think Robot Chicken: Star Wars , which I bought at the same time from Amazon, was far more inventive and funny.
One thing about both DVDs is that both the creators are called Seth, and if they could have kept the humor clean my young sons who are big Star Wars fans would have been able to watch it. I guess some writers think dirty is funny...
Best part may be the excitement on the face of the exec producer when he is interviewing "The Checkered One", George Lucas!
The jokes are in the usual Family Guy style, so you know what to expect, Toilette humor at it's best. The spoof is so well done and with such detail that you could think that it was drown over the original movie frames, it's uncanny.
This is the ultimate box for every collector, you got the movie and the interesting extras (for instance a couple of readings of the next episode,"Something, Something, Something Dark Side"), the digital copy, a really cool book with original designs for the episodes, a couple of trading cards and a exclusive T-Shirt with spoof of the original Star Wars poster from 1977. It's a great bag of goodies, totally worth the money.
Blue Harvest was a hit for me. Some of the reviews had me skeptical, but for me, they were wrong. Great comedy writing all the while sticking pretty close to the original script. If you're thinking it will be a "Space Balls" kind of spoof, you just may be disappointed. For "Star Wars" fans, this to me would be just what you're looking for in a "spoof".
Again, for me, this a great buy and is a hilarious DVD. Good price at $10 when I bought it.
