Watched this last night. I'd absolutely buy a figure of the tanker truck, it was a surprisingly neat design.

Michael Bay's Transformers Movies Parodied by Family Guy

And now for something a little different from our regular fare. Via fellow Seibertronians Cyberpath and Emerje, we have word that Family Guy's most recent episode (Season 16 Episode 5, broadcast on November 5th, for those of you keeping track) features an extended parody of Michael Bay's memorably unique directing style - with multiple specific references to Transformers along the way!

The episode features a short story as "interpreted" by three different directors - though none of the named directors were actually involved - the third of which is our very own director of the Transformers movies, Michael Bay! Numerous iconic techniques from Bay's movies are replicated, exaggerated and pastiched: from the title (and its font) to the dramatic camera angles, the overwhelming patriotism to the omnipresent explosions, and naturally the Transformers themselves! Three Decepticons (who are called as such within the show) appear, and though none are given specific names, two are heavily based on Megatron's and Starscream's live-action movie designs respectively.

Image

"Megatron" notably takes multiple cues, particularly the lower leg design and truck mode, from his Dark of the Moon incarnation, while "Starscream" similarly borrows his flight-based alternate mode and general body shape from the highly distinct design featured in Bay's films. The third Decepticon, while less familiar-looking than the other two, could be considered a Soundwave analog thanks to the satellite-like panels behind its head and blue coloration (and to round out the iconic Decepticon trio).

Did you have a favorite moment in this extended shout-out? Were there any particularly noteworthy homages to Bay's films that we missed out on mentioning? Let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub forums!

Given how McFarlene does jabs with subtle meanings ( Harvey .....cough..........Oscars), he really might have something for or against a certain ethnic group.

He once portrayed Optimus wearing a kippah (though the TF franchise really owes a lot to "them" from both Hasbro and Marvel Comics) in an episode where Peter wanted to convert for less than altruistic reasons. :lol:

You obviously don't know how Seth thinks. Everything is on the table to joke on. Alex Borstein who voices Lois is a good friend of Seth's. People assume that Seth is also a womanizer, but one of his greatest writers on the show is a woman. it boils my blood people assume because he cracks jokes on many things when to him it's all good fun and his staff and fellow VMs support him.

What part of my post was offensive? You guys even read current events? McFarlane does things on the sly with hidden meanings. He said that himself.

I did not specifically mention a particular group (to avoid an automatic ruffling of feelings) and I "praised" them for it. What part was offensive?

"Make no mistake, this came from a place of loathing and anger."
Seth MacFarlane on Wednesday released a statement explaining his jab at Harvey Weinstein during the Oscar nominations announcement in 2013.

Just google this statement. Maybe you know about Seth than Seth knows about himself and his thoughts.

Troll? Name calling immediately? Please think first before you post. >:oP Then think who's really the troll?

Eh, can't bloody stand Family Guy (or Seth McFarlane in general) but they look alright in those screenshots there.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

If I may share something myself: the episode of Family Guy that I watched for this was my first, and with a fair amount of certainty, I can say my last. Maybe the show's style of humor just doesn't gel with me personally, but I didn't even crack a smile through the whole episode. I almost enjoyed seeing these Transformers standing there looking cool, but unfortunately that's pretty much literally all they do. Stand there and look cool. They might have done more interesting stuff in the "fight" scene, but then the "joke" there is that they copy and exaggerate Bay's frustratingly-confusing editing style in action scenes. Taking something that people hate, and then doing it while pointing out that you're doing it, isn't clever. It barely even qualifies as observational humor. It's just doing something people hate.

But to bring it back around, yes the robots are cool! I know it's probably just the nature of 3D cel-shaded animation (which I'm pretty sure these Decepticons are) but the way they looked and moved actually reminded me a lot of the new RiD 'bots. And if nothing else, I can definitely tell that a lot of knowledge and thought went into the designs - as I went into probably too much detail about above! Ironically, had it been less concerned with trying to crack jokes instead of just letting the material speak for itself, it might've actually made for quite a clever parody - only in my own opinion of course.

Long time watcher of Family Guy reruns here, and the humor the show is known for isn't really the kind of laugh at. Rather, it's more the rolling eyes kind, subtle at times, but most of all it's pushing one's personal limits on what's considered decent to poke fun at (as we all know, anything goes with Seth). True, some jokes do cross the line (there's even a Top 10 list on YouTube, look it up), and mind you, I don't like the cutaways relating to Autism, personally. But at it's core, it's unapologetic in what it does best, being random and above all, poking the penguin.

That said, I may have to keep an eye out for that episode. And silly question, but did anyone notice the third, small one is a port-a-potty, with someone exiting it right before he transforms?

Indeed (that's what mostly threw off my guesses as to its intended character homage, since there certainly aren't any canon dunnyformers AFAIK). I guess that's a pretty good example of the eye-rolling kind of humor, ain't it?


Also unrelated to this exact quote since I just forgot to mention earlier, but I still think PaSwG did this all way better [-(

He once portrayed Optimus wearing a kippah (though the TF franchise really owes a lot to "them" from both Hasbro and Marvel Comics) in an episode where Peter wanted to convert for less than altruistic reasons. :lol:


You really need to watch how you say things. You're once again bordering into being extremely offensive, and don't think we ignore it.


What part of my post was offensive? You guys even read current events? McFarlane does things on the sly with hidden meanings. He said that himself.

I did not specifically mention a particular group (to avoid an automatic ruffling of feelings) and I "praised" them for it. What part was offensive?

There was an episode in Family Guy where Peter wanted to convert (for less altruistic reasons) and Optimus Prime wore a kippah. What part of it was not accurate

If anyone is offensive, it's McFarlane not me.


All I said was mind how and what you say.
Staff are aware of your actions.

Added note: MacFarlane is not as clever as he thinks he is - common thread there really.


What in my post was bordering "offensive". I'd like to know so I can learn what not to post.Same as not posting offensive things against the current duly elected PotUS.

Other Guy called me a "troll" then cowardly hides back. Was he given a warning btw?


The way this discussion between you and Va'al is travelling, it'll only serve to drive this topic off-topic. Please take it up privately with him.

oh I gotta get that image added to the site for future use. hehehe


From an outsider's view, what part of my original post was offensive?

As for the coward post, if no action is done then it's the responsible person's problem at maintaining the standards which should have been automatic anyway.

"Shelfwarming"

I think that the massive amount of violence perpetrated by the Transformers is far more offensive than Seth MacFarlane and 'Family Guy'!

I just saw this episode: it was pretty good but not a masterpiece.
