Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Lexx's third year had a predetermined 13 episode run, and in a new direction there's also a predetermined continual storyline. This is teasingly set-up by "Fire and Water"--the names of a binary planet system. The Lexx is stuck in orbit around 4,000 years after the "End of the Universe." We're introduced to the mysterious Prince (Nigel Bennet) who rules the planet Fire, 790 experiences a shift of devotion, and Xev gets a new hairdo. All threads are expanded by "May" (Anna Kathrin Bleuler) who's found on planet Water. All too suddenly, Xev's in love with Prince and Stanley with May. The crew are torn every which way. Even more so when a fleet of new Moths land Kai in "Gametown", where the show's most gratuitous nudity yet reassures fans that this third year will be as dangerous and dirty as it's always been.

Ralph (Withnail & I) Brown's character Duke suddenly comes to the fore in "Boomtown." These towns teach us more and more about the lifestyles on the two planets, and since this one is essentially a nonstop orgy Stan decides Water is the planet for him! (If the nudity seemed gratuitous in "Gametown", that's nothing in comparison.) Ending on a shock appearance by Kai (no spoilers here), a balloon chase leads straight into "Gondola." Lost among the schizophrenic denizens of "K-Town," Stan and Xev are eventually found by the dead assassin whose biomechanical systems are malfunctioning. It takes a shock reappearance of season 2's Universe-destroying Mantrid to make sense of his groin-located repair mechanism. Subsequently split up, Kai suffers the red tape of petty bureaucracy in Hog Town while Stan and Xev descend 39,000 steps to the planet's "Tunnels." Stan bumps into show writer Lex Gigeroff cameoing as insane surgeon Doctor Rainbow, and escape is determined by another death and resurrection from the enigmatic Prince.

Stan has been endlessly teased by Xev. They got it together (in a manner of speaking) in "Love Grows," but here at last they experience the "ultimate in sexual satisfaction." Don't they? "The Key" metaphorically stands for a number of things in this ship-bound episode, which furthers the season's mystery considerably. And as if the sexual tension wasn't high enough already, the lifestyle offered Stan on the Water planet's "Garden" is all too tempting. The biggest lure is the return of beautiful plant gal Lyekka. Following straight on from that cliffhanger ending, "Battle" becomes a game of strategic cat and mouse aboard squadrons of hot air balloons. This season's budget helps return the look of the show to its stunning beginnings, and in this episode there are some of the best-conceived effects shots from the entire run. By now it's obvious that each community on the planet Fire is a thinly veiled satire on an aspect of modern society. A splendidly theatrical cameo from Ellen Dubin as Queen allows the viewer to question feminism, bureaucracy, and why the hell Giggerota has been reincarnated to taunt poor Stan.

At last all questions are answered in what might as well be a two-part finale. "The Beach" would for any other series be considered the clips show: on an idyllic yet purgatorial stretch of sand, Stan is forced to account for his life by viewing events of the past. Judged by his harshest critic--himself--he then suffers all that Prince has promised and more as the true meaning of "Heaven and Hell" is revealed. Creator Paul Donovan clearly maintained a strong hand in every aspect of this season, but in directing his own work with these last two episodes we witness a genuinely rare example of personal vision. The narrative has been consistently surprising, but the twist left for last is literally breathtaking. TV sci-fi has never been so sexy and intelligent at the same time. --Paul Tonks

This is based on the new packaging from Echo Bridge Home Entertainment ASIN:B006LPHXYE (Season 3). Released date 2011.

Since I have the original release discs, I was able to compare directly.

Upon playing even the first few seconds I could tell they utterly destroyed the video quality of this show. They have drastically reduced the bitrates on these to cram all the episodes onto 2 DVD9 discs.

All special features are missing that were on the original releases; Production sketches, storyboard specials, trivia & Rated: Lexx shorts made for SciFi channel.

These discs the average variable bitrate is between 2400 and 2500 Kbps - 2200 average for video, 192 for audio (Yes, even the audio bitrate has been lowered from 224).

Avoid these Echo Bridge releases at all costs. I purchased them since they were cheap, and I was curious. I'm glad my original 10 or 12 disc sets are still like new.

2 star due to it being such a great 5 star series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Downey said this June 21 2003
Format:DVD
Lexx is so far the best show I ever liked. I even wrote Brian Downey and Michael McManus, trying to get them to say "yes" to my oncoming new ideas for animation Lexx. Since Lexx couldn't produce a spin-off, I asked Brian if Lexx can be animated and he said "yes." 2 months later after I mailed my first script, he turned me down and rejected the script. Me and Brian had a common email relationship to bring back Lexx how ever I wanted. I am not trying to hate him for what he did. I was just wanting to bring back Lexx for the sake of the fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER Boxed Set Aug. 19 2003
By cpen
Format:DVD
This is getting irritating. I've already made a promise to myself to hold off on the DVDs for The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, and The Animatrix until Revolutions comes out, because you just KNOW they're gonna box set those.
Fortunately I only have the first Series 3 DVD, and I got it for cheap, so I'm not totally ruined here.
Time for another self-promise (which I suggest everyone else make to themselves as well): DON'T BUY THE INDIVIDUAL SERIES 4 DVDS.
I know they're in the business to make money, and marketing gimmicks is what it's all about, but that doesn't make it any less annoying.
My rating applies specifically to the concept of box sets being released after the individual DVDs. I personally loved each and every episode of Lexx throughout all 4 series (although the movie Eating Pattern and Series 4's Midsummer's Nightmare aren't exactly my favorites), and Series 3 is no exception, especially since it's how I got started watching Lexx (3.06, K-Town).
