Family Guy Star Wars Trilogy?

What? Because they don't make good exports? Ridiculous! Every other culture is allowed to do its own thing in its television, but American television must remain neutral, is that it? And fail? Seriously? Those shows are extremely successful. 

 I claim they fail because the humour relies 100% on pop culture references to succeed; if someone fails to recognize the reference then the joke falls flat and dies.

One thing you should take into consideration is that FG, and Robot Chicken to a degree, are as much about pop culture references as they are about the characters, sometimes even moreso.  If you're outside the US, unless you know a lot about American pop culture over the past 30 to 40 years, you'll miss half the jokes.

 Which is why these kind of shows fail.

recast the prequels

You must cast based on the scripts written by George Lucas, for example, if you cast an older actor as Anakin he will have to utter the same dialogue that Hayden does and may seem miscast.

Where's the fun in that?


Anyways ... I would have casted Keira Knightley as Padmé and Leo DiCaprio as Anakin (or kept Hayden but have someone else do his dialogue).  

What we like about the Prequels

What I liked :


Ewan McGregor

Liam Neeson (for the most part)

Ian McDiarmid (until his transformation scene in ROTS, anyway ...)

John William's score

The idea that the Jedi order isn't an order of perfect, pristine monks but an order of corrupt, dogmatic fools.

Darth Maul

Darth Maul's lightsaber

The duel in TPM (though it does get a bit too flashy after Qui-Gon leaves the fray)

Mace Windu's lightsaber (his purple blade almost makes up for the monotony of the other lightsabers)


That's about it, unfortunately.   




Boba Fett in Force unleashed II sounds like Jango Fett.

The logic of Boba's own voice coming out of that helmet is at odds with the ability to blend into the crowd while out of the armor. Fett has gone incognito in the few EU novels I've read. It defeats the whole purpose of concealing his face.

Yet another reason I laugh at those completist losers who think the EU is compatible with Lucas' craptastic saga.
