Sure. Hit f a, which will run git fetch --all, it it will show you all the unpulled commits. You can then hit RET on a commit to bring up a detailed view.

In addition, after running git fetch --all in a terminal, git status will also tell you something like: "Your branch is behind 'origin/master' by 82 commits, and can be fast-forwarded."
