Seth MacFarlane tells Sci Fi Wire that the debut of "Something, Something, Something Darkside", the Family Guy parody of The Empire Strikes Back, may end up on DVD prior to airing on television. See the excerpt below where MacFarlane also chimes in with some future sci-fi Family Guy plans.
"MacFarlane was less certain about the release plans for the special episode, which may premiere on DVD. "Don't quote me on this, even though you're the press," he joked. "I think that episode is going to be released on DVD first before it goes on air."
MacFarlane told reporters that he's got other science fiction knockoffs planned. In one, Stewie and Brian travel back in time to World War II-era Poland. In another, Stewie beams the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation into his room."
