Editorial Reviews

The living ship Lexx and its misfit crew are an absurd anti-Star Trek: Voyager, a motley collection of space cadets wandering the backwaters of television sci-fi, inadvertently (and often hilariously) bringing death and destruction to everyone they meet.

The four episodes on Lexx: Series 2, Volume 3 show that the lusty appetites of sad sack captain Stanley Tweedle, half-lizard love slave Xev, and lovesick robot head 790 are in full swing. In 791 790 salvages the well-endowed trunk of a decapitated cyborg found on a crash-landed prison ship, only to find this is one body with a mind (not to mention a kinky, insatiable sex drive) all its own. In Wake the Dead, they find five lost-in-space teenage joyriders in suspended animation and let them loose aboard Lexx. One prank-loving idiot proceeds to order the reanimated assassin Kai to kill everyone on the ship--and to his surprise turns the philosophical zombie into a wisecracking slasher movie killer. Nook may be short for "nookie," which Xev finally gets from an all-male enclave of isolated monks they discover on the sole island of a deep space Waterworld. Needless to say, her intrusion into the monastic lifestyle stirs some unfamiliar feelings among the brothers, who find her a very strange and arousing man indeed. Finally in Norb, the dreaded insect king Mantrid, reborn in the first episode as a half-human killing machine with an army of flying arms, engages the Lexx in a fatal "game" that involves devouring the ship alive.

The DVD also features another 10-minute, behind-the-scenes featurette, short cast and creator interviews, and the third chapter of Rated LEXX, a TV special created for the Sci Fi Channel to introduce the characters and recap the origins. --Sean Axmaker

From the Back Cover

Sexy sci-fi with a sense of humor and no higher purpose whatsoever. A crew of intergalactic misfits roams the weirdest possible parallel universe in a giant space ship that's actually a genetically enhanced bug. On the run, they're looking for a new home in the rare moments when they aren't hoping for a little action or dodging annihilation. An international cult hit and SCI FI Channel favorite that skates along the outside edge of the genre. With as many special effects per episode as most sci-fi series have in a whole season.

2.9 - 791 - When the crew responds to a ship in distress, they find a headless cyborg who seems like the answer to 790's erotic dilemma.
2.10 - Wake the Dead - Five rowdy teenagers camp out aboard the LEXX and drive a crew member to the brink and beyond.
2.11 - Nook - The crew arrives on a planet where Xev is the first woman its monastic all-male inhabitants have seen in 100 years.
2.12 - Norb - An eerily familiar young boy the crew picks up turns out to be an inhuman infiltrator sent by Mantrid to start the "game".

The long-awaited dvd releases of this season 2 series kicks into high gear with the release of #4, which includes one of my personal favorite episodes,"Wake the Dead" and a journey into some space-kink with "791" and "Nook", and wraps it up nicely with "Norb", which showcases the arch-enemy Mantrid's return to the series for a climactic finish to the series down the line. "Wake the Dead" allows Michael McManus to release all that pent-up aggression suppressed by being dead and gives one of the funniest serial killer/slasher movie parodies in recent memory, and serves as his all-time favorite episode as well. "791" lets 'Lyekka',(man-eating plant person) and 790 to realize some suppressed desires, but not necessarily with each other. Lyekka wants food,(people type food) and 790 wants Xev, and gets himself a body to prove it, with dire results. "Nook" serves as the episode where Xev finally gets what she wants, but the price may be too high. The subplot with Stanley and the monk hilariously delves into the realm of innuendo in the form of bisexuality, again a welcome sideview of desires left unrealized. "Norb" sees the return of Mantrid and the youngster from "White Trash", both of which turn in excellent performances. The tension during the chase scenes with the drone arms were especially spine-tingling and left me with a distinct sense of dread for the coming episodes, which is exactly what they were supposed to do. All in all, a great combo, and the picture quality was far superior to the first two dvds previously released, the interviews and extra goodies also were a delightful bonus..A must-have for the Lexx fan..

Season 2 didn't hit its peak until the episodes on this disc. While 791 is genuinely weird, I think it's a fun Alien spoof. Wake the Dead is still thought of as one of the best episodes, featuring a deranged Kai. Nook is a good stand-alone episode and benefits from an uncut version. And Norb really introduces the nemesis of Season 2, Mantrid. The video quality is better than the first two, with less grain and good color saturation. The menus are also simplified, and continue to keep cool extra content. Highly recommended for all you LEXX fans!

it took a while for the story arc to get going in season 2 but i guess that is cause they had to space it out over twenty eps. Any way it gets moving along here and is just fantastic. Even the stand alone eps are great as well. the most fun on tv ever. it starts out with 791. Not my favorite Lexx episode but it has its moments. Then a classic. Wake the DEAD. One of the episodes where Kia goes completely bonkers and tries to kill every one. He is absolutly convincing as a dead assasin who has recovered his memory and then reprogrammed by a meddling kid who told him to kill every one on the Lexx. Then there is Nook. The episode that Xev had been waiting for ever since she was transformed into a love slave with a personality. She lost her verginity. It is wacky and fun but also disterbing in a sexual way. You'll see what I mean. And finally we look at Norb. The return of Norb, the little kid from White Trash, and the return of Mantrid. This is the episode where all the eaten planets finally gets explaned. The story arc is pushed full steam ahead here without any flaws. We also learn something about 790 which makes his day more enjoyable than if he saw Stan get chopped in half by Kia's brace and fed to the Lexx. Oh and by the way, has anyone else ever noticed that every person on the show has been killed at least once. All the main characters have all died at least twice. Just thought that I would point that out. Hope you enjoy.
