Finally watched it when it aired on FOX last night.  I thought it was pretty good overall.

I HATE Family Guy, but watched last night because of the Star Wars theme. This is their second SW episode. The first was ANH and this was ESB. Loved the "nailing the electical wires to the snow" line. The "robot camels" were pretty hilarious too.

The uncensored version is damn funny too, especially the **** you line from Han/Carlos Spicy Weiner/Peter.

I actually didn't care for it that much, there were a few funny moments, but I found the vast majority of it was the same tired Family Guy jokes that they keep using over and over again in the regular series, with a Star Wars theme. Like the AT-AT banging it's knee for example. They've used that same joke how many times now? There were a few original laughs but overall I thought it was kinda meh, didn't like it that much, but didn't really hate it either.

I would suggest watching the dvd version...they cut a lot out of the televised version.

I was wondering if there was a bunch removed. From what I'd read it was way too raunchy to make broadcast according to a lot of people. I also found it odd that they had the Chicken in there and a huge brawl didn't break out.

I could be wrong, but I don't think Peter and the chicken scrapped in the dvd version.  I just remember Peter commenting on how sweet it was that the chicken was Boba Fett.

All that happened between the giant chicken and Peter was when Boba Fett rounded the corner Peter said, "Ha!  The giant chicken's Boba Fett." and that was it.

I expect they'll save the overly long fight for the ROTJ episode.

A couple of trailers for the upcoming "It's a Trap", for anyone interested.

It's a Trap! hits tomorrow and I'll probably end up picking it up since I have some last minute Christmas shopping to do.

Got a chance to watch this last night, and it's easily the weakest of the bunch. They even admit it in the opening scrawl, but that doesn't mean it's not funny. Laughed quite a few times, specifically at the conversation about Seth Green, and the teaser at the Prequel trilogy being made. There's also a segment where Peter gets sick of the "cuteness" and makes everything more violent.

If you can get it for under $15, definitely check it out

I picked up the BD Trilogy earlier in the week for $22.99.  No clue why there's 6 discs in there, but I guess I'll find out in the coming weeks.

Picked up "Its a Trap" this weekend as well, namely for the sake of completeness for the Family Guy Star Wars trilogy.  I agree it was the weakest of the three, but there were certainly some funny moments and its always fun to see what Family Guy or spin-off show characters they make into the various SW characters.  I guess my favorite gag would have had to have been when the dead emperor fell on the Falcon as it sped through the Death Star tunnel - my brother and I had joked about that happening for years and Seth McFarland finally made it happen :P

The Seth Green insults were funny as well ;)

Unfortunately, the gag worked better in the most recent Robot Chicken Star Wars special.

At least they admitted it up front that they knew the ROTJ parody was the weakest of the bunch.

My favorite gag was when they made fun of the Yoda death scene, how he keeps repeating "Luke" at the beginning of each of his sentences. Chris' responses to each "Luke" got better and better, I think my favorites were "Still haven't gone anywhere" and "Only four inches away..."

This year at the San Diego big bay balloon parade we marched with the Darth Stewie balloon and it got caught on a tree so we had to cut the light saber off of him. we also lost control of it a bit because of high winds and a fifty year old man got tea bagged by Stewie. when we got the balloon up he was laying on the ground all scared. It was fun. Got some footage.http://www.10news.com/news/26320302/detail.html
