Family Guy on Fox
When Fox originally aired the
Family Guy’sparody episode of Star Wars entitled, “Blue
Harvest,” it managed to avoid being named Worst TV Show of the Week
only by topping our Misratedcolumn. The September 21st
rerun at 9:00 p.m. ET, however, did not escape the PTC’s scrutiny and has been
named Worst TV Show of the Week for being just as raunchy the
second time around.
The episode begins with the
Griffin family sitting around the television set watching golf, which sounds
fairly innocuous … until the two commentators start ogling Phil Mickelson’s
Commentator 1: “And Mickelson
here, trying to save par...and here's Mickelson's wife. God, is she hot."
Commentator 2: "Look at that rack. There's a downhill lie for
Commentator 1: "Oh, they're
just begging to be touched. Pleading. How many golf balls do you think she can
fit in her mouth?"
Commentator 2: "I'd hit that one in the rough if you know
what I mean."
Commentator 1: "Who are you
kidding, Greg? You'd (bleeped f***) her for a week and then get tired of her."
Commentator 2: "Yeah, you're
right. That's what I do. That's my thing...but hell of a week, though."
Commentator 1: "Hell of a week."
The Griffin’s electricity goes out and Peter begins to retell
the Star Wars story in order to pass the time. As the parody begins,
Stormtroopers invade Princess Leia’s ship. C-3PO (played by Glenn Quagmire)
comments to R2-D2 (Cleveland Brown), "Do you hear that? It sounds like we're
being boarded from the rear, and not the 'Hey, take a deep breath let's
experiment' kind of boarded from the rear." Cleveland responds, "Could you hold
onto this bag?" He hands Quagmire a baggie filled with marijuana. Peter’s son,
Chris, plays Luke Skywalker in the parody and learns about the Force from
Obi-Wan Kenobi, played by Herbert, the elderly neighborhood pedophile. Later,
during the famous trash-compactor scene, C-3PO and R2-D2 smoke marijuana and
inadvertently push the button that stops the compactor from crushing Leia, Han,
Luke, and Chewbacca. In the showdown between Darth Vader (Stewie) and Obi-Wan
(Herbert), Stewie asks, “What part of ‘stay fifty yards away’ don’t you
understand?” Herbert’s lightsaber is limp, an obvious phallic reference. He
swings his flaccid saber at Darth until he sees Chris enter. Instantly, his
The PTC’s Misrated column about this episode
alerted viewers to the fact that the original broadcast lacked the “S” content
descriptor despite the show’s clear sexual content. The rerun failed to remedy
this flaw. Since this episode of Family Guy is essentially the cartoon
version of the film that launched a franchise geared toward children, it is save
to assume that more than a few kids would have been tempted to tune in. Without
an accurate rating, parents would not have known exactly how bad the episode is
for their children to watch, and the V-Chip would have failed to block the
The original broadcast garnered the show its second-highest
viewer ratings; and based on the success of subsequent special edition DVD
sales, the producers of Family Guy are planning a parody of The Empire
Strikes Back. One can only assume that the next parody will be just as
raunchy as this one, if not more so. Apparently, when Seth McFarlane and his
perverted staff talk about the Dark Side, they mean a darker shade of blue.
For strong sexual content without proper warnings, the
September 21st episode of Family Guy has been named
Worst TV Show of the Week.
