4/10 - swoo
For Star Wars superfans, this has a ton of fan service in every episode. I imagine the helmet is pretty important in Star Wars lore but obviously limits the emotional range of the main character and it's a body double, Pedro Pascal voices the character. This is in contrast to Dread where Karl Urban was able to emote a lot with his voice and just his mouth visible. If you love Star Wars you have to watch this, but as standalone it's just OK as a space western - this borrows liberally from Yojimbo, Seven Samurai, Lone Wolf and Cub, and the derivative Sergio Leone westerns of the 70's, but if you've never seen those this will seem fresh.
