It was actually a comic called Dark Empire. He did fall to the dark side for a very short time, but he did it to try and save Han and Leia (sound familiar?). He thought he could get in close to the Reborn Emperor by pretending to be his apprentice and then kill him, but it went wrong.
I am nerd.
I loved the PT, but then again I sorta grew up with them along with the OT. But I am very interested in seeing how this TV series turns out. It could be crap, it could be incredible, we’ll just have to wait and see.
