Blue Harvest

We don’t usually watch Family Guy, but having seen the reviews, and having spotted that the episode was being shown last night, we watched Blue Harvest last night on BBC3. Having not seen the rest of the series, we probably missed quite a few jokes, but there were plenty of Star Wars jokes to keep us laughing through the whole episode, with some very accurately recreated sequences from A New Hope that aren’t quite as they are in the original, and even a brief appearance of the fourth Doctor title sequence from Doctor Who. There are certainly some jokes at the expense of the plot of the original movie – the discussion about the Death Star being invincible aside from a small hole about the size of a womp rat being and example – and also picks up on eternal fan discussions such as parsec being a unit of distance rather than time, and Han shooting first.
