Family Guy season premiere: chock full of the Schwartz

I'm still laughing after the season premiere of Family Guy.
  • eventually got over my inner nerd's problem with the "casting" of Herbert as Obi-Wan*
  • loved the Airplane references
  • the scene with Lois/Leia and Cleveland/R2-D2 trying to shoot an mpeg is absolutely brilliant
  • kept wondering when Meg was going to show up. When she appeared as the monster in the Death Star's trash compactor, I totally lost it.





* Obi-Wan is such a reverent character... there is almost something disrespectful about Herbert the Pervert in the role. But I realize the show spares no one, and skewers all. That's why I love it.

I thought Meg was going to be Jabba the Hut, but I guess that would've been too easy.

Are they trying to phase out the character of Meg? She's getting less and less air time as the show progresses.
