Product Description

Amazon.ca

A crew of misfit outlaws wanders the galaxy in a living ship. Sound familiar? Doomed to live in the shadow of cable TV's science fiction class act Farscape, the Canadian-German coproduction Lexx takes a completely different trajectory as a tongue-in-cheek, sci-fi sex farce from a three-man team of "Human Beans" led by creator and frequent writer-director Paul Donovan. Sad-sack pilot Stanley Tweedle (Brian Downey), coquettish love slave Zev (Eva Habermann), reanimated corpse Kai (Michael McManus), and lovesick robot head 790 wander the galaxy looking for food, people, and (most importantly) a little nookie. Shot on the cheap with loads of flashy (if often unconvincing) digital effects and a rather claustrophobic series of studio-bound sets, the show launched with a quartet of TV movies before settling into a weekly series with its second season (1998).

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Aug. 5 2010
By Snappy
Format:DVD
As far as the show goes, I think it's still really good after all these years. Not everything I was crazy about 15 years ago has passed that test. But Lexx has unique sci fi stories that are also humerous.
Packaging was not great but not awful. Disc one does not want to go back in this layered box and the fact that they are layered overlapping each other is a concern. But my discs were in good shape when received (no scratches).
Video quality is usually pretty good but goes grainy in some parts, kind of randomly. Not too distracting.

The price is great and very happy to see Lexx back in print.

3.0 out of 5 stars No captioning/subtitling Aug. 28 2003
Format:DVD
I love Lexx. The featurettes are cool, the quality of the transfer seems good. However, I was very disappointed to find that the episodes are not closed-captioned or subtitled at all. If you are hearing-impaired, you might want to skip the DVD's and see if you can find someone who recorded the episodes from Sci-Fi, where most, with a few exceptions, ran with closed captioning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lexx: Season 2 Aug. 25 2010
By Eddy B

Lexx: Season 2

I really enjoyed this TV series and would give it a four star rating, BUT these new 4-6 `clipped-stacked' Alliance Films releases are really getting me `bugged' off. I've purchased over the last year Seasons of BeastMaster, Lexx, Earth: Final Conflict, RoboCop, Outer Limits: The New Series, PSI: Factor and all but a few have had at least two to all six discs loose in the case with scratches after opening them. I realized what's the use of returning them for exchange, as it will continue to happen again. The packing gets a one star rating and also because of my following note below, I can only give this Alliance Films release at best a three star overall rating. ALSO PLEASE NOTE: these new re-releases of Lexx on Alliance Films DO NOT contain both English & French soundtracks (only English) and the great BONUS FEATURES that were available on the original Acorn Media/Koch Vision releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season Two - the Best Season of Lexx Nov. 20 2005
By D.N.
Format:DVD
This is the season I'd recommend most. When my friend started showing me his collection of Lexx dvds (a commitment of countless hours) I was nervous the whole show might be as enthralled with its own breathlessly expanding mythology as the first season was.
When we started with the 2nd, I breathed a sigh of relief. The show develops a routine but one that surprises, entertains and leaves you asking 'how did we get to this point!?'. It's a ribald sci-fi comedy that recalls some of the goofier Star Trek episodes.
LYEKKA, LUVLINER, LAFFTRAK, 791, WAKE THE DEAD, TWILIGHT, WOZ and the END OF THE UNIVERSE are my faves. 'Brigadoom' is the musical.

5.0 out of 5 stars So worth it! June 3 2004
Format:DVD
Wow I just love to be able to pick what episode I want. The DVD 'extras' are excellent too. This series had a very original creative element I have never seen anywhere before, you could tell the LEXX set designers and wardrobe people were very professional in their creative work making cheesy and tacky look so very out of this world good! The special effects are like a cross between Flash Gordon meets the Matrix meets Austin Powers! Only it is isn't, it's all LEXX and all original. By the way, saying this is geared towards European teens? is way off, what a lame review!, this is for every Sci Fi fan that ever wanted a break from the typical creature vs. Earth story line, it is more like a psycadelic soap opera set in the future in a galaxy far, far away from every day Earth life, a great way to 'escape' from everyday life.

5.0 out of 5 stars LEXX is a MUST March 29 2003
Format:DVD
If you can watch the firdt episode (I worship his shadow) and you enjpoy its campy yet well developed story then you will fall in love with the entire series. I have never ordered a DVD of a series before, let alone a sci-fi series, but this set usurps star wars in its campy intrigue and totally overshadows Dune's monopoly on a fairly original story line and immmersive, if less than state of the art, special effects. Many tongue in cheek jokes lend the series to a "don't take yourself too seriously" attitude which lets the viewer accept the flick for what it is. A work of sci-fi indy genius which only a few will truly appreciate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grainy transfer mars otherwise great series. April 14 2004
Format:DVD
4.5 stars. I just want to note here that there are numerous scenes where the transfer to DVD is less than perfect. Other times, particularly the special effects shots, the transfer is pristine. This is possibly, arguably, the most original Sci-fi series ever created and it was a mild letdown to see a flawed transfer. However, all these episodes are the uncut versions, and I seriously don't remember this much sexual innuendo(oftentimes bizarre sexual innuendo). But this show always was a little more than left-of-center, which is certainly why it appealed to me so much. Just when I thought there was nothing original on TV, along comes this weird series in the 2a.m. time-slot like a warm wind filled with fresh air. For beginners I suggest getting the first series volumes for a more in-depth backstory on these strangely captivating characters. After that, this is an excellent progression. The stories are crazy and fun, and each volume here contains over three hours of footage. This series has great return value, it's just too bad the transfer is less than perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Viewing April 2 2004
Format:DVD
It is my opinion that the second series of Lexx is the best of the 4.
In this series you get a collection of stand-alone episodes that only hint at an undelying plotline that reveals itself fully in the last few episodes. The Stand alone episodes bring out the risqué humour this series is known for. Each episode is a new adventure and are well worth spending the time to watch.
The special features are bare minimum. If you purchase DVDs based on the special features all you're really getting is quizzes based on the episodes on the DVD.
