In the first of 20 episodes, "Mantrid" launches the Lexx into a funhouse galaxy of wacky worlds, where the dreaded insect king awakes and begins his bizarre reign of terror. The hilarious "Lyekka" introduces the title character, a curvy little plant girl with an insatiable appetite for human flesh, but more importantly it replaces platinum blonde Eva Haberman with the impishly flirtatious, full-lipped redhead Xenia Seeberg, the show's instant cult pinup queen. The show's eagerness to experiment is proven in "Brigadoom," a sci-fi musical that tells Kai's backstory entirely in song--with surprisingly impressive results. "Brizon" and "End of the Universe" end the second series as the Lexx is inexorably drawn into the Dark Zone after an epic fight with Mantrid's multiplying drone arms.
Each DVD features a different 10-minute, behind-the-scenes featurette, short cast and creator interviews, and a chapter of Rated LEXX, a TV special created for the Sci Fi Channel to introduce the characters and recap the origins.
