StarWTF!? Episode 35: Count Dooku

In a very sad WTF!? moment last week, we found out that Sir Christopher Lee passed away at the age of 93. While he was known for many, many films, we wanted to get together and reminisce about his days as Dooku, the poorly-named Dark Lord of the Sith. We take a look into his battle scenes, the CGI that surrounds them, his death, and the action figures (with action features!) that followed.

Christopher Lee will be missed greatly.

Dooku was a Jedi Master who fell to the dark side of the Force and became a Dark Lord of the Sith, known as Darth Tyranus. Born into a noble family on the planet Serenno, he was the heir to vast wealth and the noble title of Count. Dooku was taken by the Jedi Order as a child and apprenticed to Thame Cerulian. As a Jedi Knight, he took Qui-Gon Jinn as his first Padawan, and later trained Komari Vosa. Dooku was a respected instructor in the Jedi Temple and one of the most renowned swordsmen in the galaxy, on par only with Masters Yoda and Mace Windu.
RIP Christopher Lee
