Though they're right, Sebastian Stan should have played Luke instead of Mr. Bad CGI Face.

Well I really enjoyed it, apart from the end of the first season

Show
where the Mando took his helmet off for IG-11, and gave the viewers at home a gratuitous face-shot.
and look, I know that in the second season

he gets his lid off a few times, but by then it's not gratuitous - it's a part of the storytelling and development of Mando's character, and the way he has to challenge his own sense of self in support of little bebbe yoda
because honestly in the first season they could have

had him remove his helmet so IG-11 could fix him up, but position the camera so the viewer couldn't see his face. I wanted to honour that mystery longer
