Lexx

Show Summary

"I am Kai, last of the Brunnen-G. Millennia ago, the Brunnen-G led humanity to victory in the war against the insect civilization. The Timeprophet predicted that I would be the one to destroy the divine order in the league of the 20.000 planets. Someday that will happen, but not today. Cause' today is my day of death. The day our story begins."

A cowardly security guard, an undead assassin, a female with a body designed for sex and a robot head madly in love with her all make up the crew of the spaceship Lexx, the most powerful weapon in the two universes.

  • Good start, dies in the middle, creeping death at the end.

    The show starts off fun the first two seasons keep you interested in a very colorful show with interesting enemies. Despite the Beyond thunderdome campy appearance of the show the first two seasons are enjoyable in sort of a Brazil meets 5th element only less interesting kind of way. However the writer of the show had a vision, not a show in mind so the next two seasons are singly the most boring thing I have ever tried to watch. If you can even make it through season 4 you have the fortitude of a god.



    I cant bash to show too much, it did create ideas that other shows took and made better shows with, Andromeda and Farscape both went with the living ship idea and it did have interesting elements that got used again. However the writing and plot as a whole felt like some long winded skin flick filmed in a cheap studio in Canada. It looks like something that I would have watched on USA up all night in the 80s. Its right up there with attack of the killer tomatoes.moreless
  • Lexx Waste

    The script missed the mark and lef the viewer confused and changing channels.

    Better effects than script.

    It's hard to fully explain the contrast of feelings I have for this show. It could be utterly unique one minute and then staggeringly facile and derivative the next.



    There's always talk of 'you didn't get it' if you mention some dislike of the show to a hardcore fan, but unfortunately for a show that enjoyed poking fun at tropes of SF shows and at the world in general it was often crushingly obvious and poorly written. As for most of the humour and 'eroticism,' well that barely ever worked for me.



    That being said Stanley is the epitome of the loser in space - Phillip J. Fry and Arnold Rimmer would have a lot to learn from him, but despite this the acting was always so good you couldn't help but feel sympathy for him. The rest of the principal cast were good too - although I always thought Eva Habermann was far better as Zev. It's just a shame that the majority of the supporting actors tended to put in a poor performance.



    The other thing I still give major credit for, is the guts to do things most SF shows don't and that's not care about shaking up the universe - whether destroying one, putting the Earth in the 'dark' universe and then just blowing it up.



    Do I miss it? Just a tiny bit, as once in a while it would surprise the hell out of you, just wish it had happened more often.moreless

    I have bought the whole series and think it was ones of great shows. Would advise anyone that this show should be watched. It is a little on the preverted side but we are all able to enjoy that a little as well. I loved this show. I want it back my whole family thought it was great and would really love it to be brought back. The song where great my son walks around the house singing the Brunnen G battle song. It needs to be brought back to complete the story and see if Stan and Xev found a place to call home. I want to know if the little ship grows up.moreless
