The Farce is with Them: Review for “Robot Chicken: Star Wars” DVD

Posted on Updated on

Robot Chicken is the completely irreverent and irrelovent television show on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. It usues a stop-motion animation to create some of the wackiest “skits”. Created by Seth Green and Matthew Cenreich, the show also has a weird twist: they use toys! Last year, George Lucas allowed the mad geniuses of Chicken to create a special half-hour Star Wars episode for the 30th annivarsary of the franchise. And all hail the DVD release! The crude jokes don’t last long, sometimes unlike the other episodes, but make sure the kiddies don’t watch it. From a Yo’ Mama fight between father and son to a show that is The Empire Strikes Back on ice, the guys create some of the funniest jokes about the space opera ever. The special features are pretty good, including an audio commentary of-sorts, trailers, a doc on the production design, alternate audio, a making of doc, and a photo gallery.
