Program Review: Space Janitors

Need a laugh or three while waiting for Disney's Star Wars sequels?   Then check out the web series Space Janitors, which finished its first season three weeks ago. 
I stumbled across Space Janitors through Felicia Day's Geek & Sundry.
The initial eight episodes revolves around Custodian Darby attempting to improve his lot within the Empire--with comedic/disasterous results.  Episodes 1-6 are parody vignettes of Star Wars tropes, but also import other sci-fi staples as well. 
By Episode 7 a singular story line emerges dealing with Darby's origin.
The show certainly provides a chuckle or two, but you have to be a Star Wars fan to fully appreciate the humor.  So as a Star Wars fan myself, I'll give this show a 4-star rating.  It's an enjoyable internet diversion.
