So my last watch did not go so well, and today’s job hunt is discouraging. I signed up for a twitter and created my own blog. I do feel fairly productive. Therefore today marks a new day and a new review. Yes, the Family Guy, as a Rhode Island native I am forced to be a fan. The show is fantastic and I religiously watched the first three season but fell of the train somewhere in the 4th season. I caught an episode from time to time and had seen the Stewie movie. But this marks the first of Family Guy I have seen in HD, and an Empire Strikes Back parody thank you Seth McFarlane.
All of the elements are there and this is even a particularly great retelling of Empire, it leaves very little out of the story. The adding of all the pop-culture references makes this so much fun. I love the Cookie Monster as the Hoth monster( I know I am a nerd for capitalizing Hoth), and the J Crew in Cloud City, but the best of all is the Rocky training sequence with Yoda (I will not spoil this no matter how much I want to).
The disc has plenty of special features the drunk commentary is great. The track may even be funnier than the film itself, if I had some tequila during this I may have vomited from laughter. There is also a pop up track that gives fun and random insight into Family Guy, Star Wars and just other randomness. There is a fun little feature about the box art and the box art of the original Empire Strikes Back. The table read is great to watch Seth switch between characters on a dime.
