4.0 out of 5 stars A Sci-fi adventure in 13 parts., May 30, 2004
This review is from: Lexx - The Complete Third Series (DVD)
This third season was where I was initiated with "The Lexx." I came in completely bewildered and at the same time fascinated by what I was seeing. I consider this show to be one of the most original sci-fi programs ever created, and this third series continues that tradition with some excellent computer graphics and bizarre yet mesmerizing scenarios. What is different in this series as compared to the last is that while the second series was a collection of twenty singular episodes with a through-line plot, this third series is more like a single, long adventure story in 13 parts. There are very few moments in this series that I thought the story was meandering or losing focus of the motivations of the main characters. Also, many of the new character actors are superb. All give memorable performances, with a particularly enthralling performance from Nigel Bennett who plays the character "Prince." While the surreal, often nightmarish, story unfolds there is an underlying mystery that is gradually revealed. The "Making of..." section on the DVDs are both informative and entertaining with shots taken from filming on location in Berlin, as well as on the sound stages in Nova Scotia. This third series is an epic adventure that stands on its own once the main characters become familiar. Newcomers to "The Lexx" should start with the original first series which consists of four 2-hour-long films for a more detailed backstory. The second series also has some great moments and is certainly worth obtaining, as well. This third series should be watched as a whole, and that is why I chose not to write reviews for each particular volume. Let the journey begin...
