Description :

From Season 10, Episode 4 "Stewie Goes for a Drive"It is a parody of 1970's sci-fi movies, the most recognisable references being Logan's Run (1976) and Westworld (1973). Expand to full description for more info.The Family Guy wiki lists Adzin as being voiced by Adam Alexi-Malle, but IMdB lists both Adam Alexi-Malle and Seth MacFarlane (which would explain why he sounds like Stan Smith from American Dad.) His companion is likely voiced by Tara Strong (unconfirmed.)There many movies of the same era that have a similar feel of uselessness or a dystopian theme, often with just as depressing endings, such as:The Stepford Wives (1975), Planet of The Apes (1968), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Soylent Green (1973), Fahrenheit 451 (1966), The Omega Man (1971), Blade Runner (1982), The Andromeda Strain (1968), Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970), Demon Seed (1977), Silent Running (1972), Saturn 3 (1980), Mad Max (1979), The Clonus Horror (1979), Solaris (1972), THX-1138 (1971), 1984 (1984), Journey to the Far Side of the Sun aka Doppelganger (1969), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1969).The style went out of vogue through the 80's, and more modern stuff in the same vein tends to not be so depressing. Notable shows that I would recommend include:The Terminator (1984), Equilibrium (2002), Moon (2009), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Westworld the series (2016 - ), Black Mirror series ( 2011 - ), Solaris (2002), Passengers (2016), Oblivion (2013), Blade Runner 2049 (2017), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). M. Night Shyamalan also deserves an honourable mention for his movies.Thank you to commenters for giving examples that helped me grow and clarify this list, and cheers to the writers of Family Guy for nailing that particular 70's genre vibe!
