Hell where was Joe?  Maybe he'll be in the ESB rumored episode.

Dude they should have cast Joe as Obi-Wan in a hovering wheelchair ... make it an injury from the Mustafar duel even.

I also wonder who they will cast as Yoda ... most of the first- and second-tier characters are already taken.

Blue Harvest on DVD

I just saw that this morning, that is great news.  We'd usually pick up the Family Guy season sets eventually anyways, but I'm glad its getting its own (and earlier) release.  I'm glad to hear we may be seeing Empire and Jedi done as well.

That is great news!  I'm curious about the extra footage.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

$23 for a ******* hourlong episode (less the commercials of course)? I realize that SRP is way higher than what we eventually pay at Best Buy/Target/et al ... but that still tells us it will be in the price bracket of a regular two-hour movie DVD, i.e. $15-20 on release day. For about 45 minutes of actual product, not counting the features. No thanks.

And the SE? What a bunch of ridiculous crap.

To reiterate what I said in reference to the Darth Stewie character key:

Good Lord ... will the post-movie pre-TV-show bottom-feeding never end?? ::)

$20 is a huge rip off for an 40 minute long show... I paid $10 for two hour-and-a-half long TV movies with the Ewoks DVD, so this thing should be no more than that amount. The SE is kind of neat, but not worth the extra $$.

I agree that the SE is cool but it isn't worth the money. Hell, just wait until September/October 08 and you can get the entire season, featuring the Blue Harvest episode, for the same price.

I have a suspicion it won't be in the regular season set. At least not on the first release edition.

Hopefully people will just wait it out and buy it later then. i think releasing Blue Harvest separately is for people like me who only watched that episode but could care less for the rest of the show...

i'm still not going to buy it anyway, though.

Wow..What a ripoff.  I actually like Family Guy, but I didn't care much for this episode with very few exceptions.  I still probably cave and get the "standard" DVD as I don't need all that other crap.  I'm sure it'll be $14.99 or what not the week it comes out like all the othe bare bones DVDs.
