It’s a Trap!, a Family Guy Special: a Television Special Review

-Page of Reference in RP1: Not explicitly mentioned…but I was reviewing everything Star Wars anyway… haha…

Review (contains spoilers):

In typical Family Guy fashion, the parody is great but absolutely ridiculous.  There are tons of inappropriate jokes.  The gags are beaten into your head.  And like they said in the beginning…they kind of phoned this one in.  but not in a bad way.

Defiantly worth watching to finish out the trilogy.


Rating: 3 out of 5.
