Something, Something, Something Dark Side

The title card from the second Family Guy Star Wars parody.

The crew at Family Guy sure do love Star Wars, don't they? After last years hit, "Blue Harvest", the FOX comedy is ready for part two (or is that Part V?). While widely rumored since the debut of "Blue Harvest", a parody on Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back will definitely be aired in the coming television year. Seth McFarlane says that the script for the episode, thoughtfully titled "Something, Something, Something, Dark Side", has been complete for a few months now. There is even a small preview for the second installment on the Blue Harvest DVD released in January. Some of the noteworthy additions to "Something..." will be Ernie the Giant Chicken as Boba Fett and Ollie Williams as Lando Calrissian. Fun stuff. Now word yet on when this show will air but it is possible that it may not be until May 2009, as indicated by this episode list on the episodes Wikipedia page. They are sorted by episode number. Episodes routinely air out of order but you can see that "Something..." is the last one listed.

For those of you wondering where they got this title, it is actually from a joke in a previous Family Guy episode from season 5 known as "Barely Legal". In the episode there is a tangent association (surprise, surprise) with the Emperor and how he can make anything sound evil by adding 'dark side' or 'complete' to the sentence.
