If you need an example of why I no longer watch Family Guy, you need look no further than this trailer for the show’s parody of The Empire Strikes Back, Something, Something Something, Dark Side.  I used to be one of the show’s most ardent fans before it was cancelled.  I was so happy when Fox brought it back and then I discovered that the show just wanted to recycle all of its old jokes.  That’s why you’ll see the Giant Chicken as Boba Fett or an AT-AT grabbing its knee like Peter did in the Willy Wonka episode back in 2000.  But hey, it’s a Star Wars parody and you don’t see a lot of those so hit the jump and check out the trailer for Something, Something, Something Dark Side.  The hour-long episode will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on December 22nd.

Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Dark Side will be available beginning December 22 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on iTunes the same day it’s available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The Blu-ray Disc will include a portable digital copy of the film from the iTunes Store.

The saga continues as Luke (Chris), Leia (Lois), Han Solo (Peter) and Chewbacca (Brian) have evaded the dreaded Imperial Starfleet led by the cunning, conniving and curiously short evil lord Darth Vader (Stewie), setting up a new secret base on the remote ice world of Hoth. With the rebellion in trouble, young Skywalker must take the advice of his late, and rather lascivious, mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi (Herbert) and learn the ways of the “farce” under Jedi Master Yoda (Carl) to save the galaxy once and for all.
