    9.0


    Giga Shadow was a superb and entertaining episode of Lexx and I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of action, drama, intrigue, along with character and plot development. It was interesting to see the out come of the rule of His Divine Shadow. It was really cool to learn who and what His Divine Shadow and Giga Shadow really were. I loved the interaction between the characters, Kai's playfulness with smoosh the cluster lizard pet, Zev saving Kai, and Stan taking revenge on those who took advantage of him in the past. I look forward to watching the next episode and season of Lexx!!!!!!!

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • During the original showing of this movie, Kai's eyes turned black. Showtime later choose to edit the screen to keep his eyes normal.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Kai: I was hoping you would help me think of a name.
      Zev: If it comes near me, I'll name it.
      Kai: What?
      Zev: Squish, which is exactly what I'll do to it.

    • Stan: Help me! Help me!
      790 (while laughing): What ever for?

    • Time Prophet: For thousands of years, each Divine Shadow passed his evil essence onto a human host, who in turn became the next His Shadow. The Rebirth marked the final passing of the Shadow essence. His Shadow's brain was to ascend into an orifice that waited above its pillar. It's essence would pass to the Gigashadow, and the Rebirth would begin.

    • Clerics: The Gigashadow is the end, and it is the beginning. First will come the Cleansing, which will feed the Rebirth. The Gigashadow is the new life beyond order, a time of pain and rejoicing.

    • GigaShadow: The victory of your ancestors was not complete.
      Kai: You are a survivor of the insect civilization.
      GigaShadow: Yes, last of the Brunnen-G. I passed some of my essence to humans, rightly believing that I would be more successful using humans to defeat themselves. Yours has been an enslaved species, working tirelessly to achieve my rebirth. The Divine Insect Order begins. The insects will rule again. I bid you extinction. The time has come.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The scene where the mercanarys are watching the hologram of Stan tied up and they cut out the nipples of his costume is a referance to A Clockwork Orange. This is probably due to the fact that Malcolm Mcdowell, star of A Clockwork Orange guest stars in this episode.
