One of Carrie Fisher's Final 'Family Guy' Episodes Spoofs Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino & Michael Bay

One of Carrie Fisher's Final 'Family Guy' Episodes Spoofs Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino & Michael Bay
From Slashfilm - November 5, 2017

Family Guy is still going strong with their 16th season currently airing on FOX. However, the show lost one of their regular guest stars late last year when screen icon Carrie Fisher passed away. The actress had already recorded dialogue for episodes that had yet to air, and one of those episodes is airing tonight on FOX. This one is particularly special since in addition to featuring some of Fishers final work, it also serves as a tribute to directors Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Michael Bay.

The Family Guy episode in question, titled Three Directors, finds Peter Griffin fired from his job at the Pawtucket Patriot Brewery. Since Carrie Fisher voiced Peters boss Angela, well get to see this scenario played out in three different ways, all in the style of the three aforementioned directors. Watch a couple clips from one of the final Carrie Fisher Family Guy episodes below.

Heres the first clip from the Three Directors episode, presented in the style of Quentin Tarantino:

As you can see the extreme violence and soundtrack weve come to expect from Quentin Tarantino movies is there. This clip in particular seems to be taking cues from Reservoir Dogs, including what appears to be a reference to all the colorful character names in the form of different colored cars in the parking lot.

Heres a second clip that ventures into more Reservoir Dogs territory, as well as Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill Vol. 1:

Cleveland Brown works as a stand-in for Samuel L. Jacksons character Jules from Pulp Fiction while Peter is a makeshift Bride from Kill Bill Vol. 1. Peter appears to be out for revenge for getting fired from his job, but Angela (as O-Ren Ishii) calls upon her Tricia Takanawa 88s to dispatch with Peter, who is dressed as Ronald McDonald for some reason.
