- Five single-sided discs for 37 episodes stacked on a spindle
- The discs AREN'T NUMBERED, nor do they indicate which episodes are where, nor is there an insert provided with this information. Think about this: THEY COULDN'T NUMBER THE DISCS
- At least one disc (4) has a whopping ten episodes crammed onto it! This makes no sense given the episode-to-disc ratio
- Per above, there is noticeable pixelation/image break-up whenever several objects are on the screen and for fast-moving objects
- No extras (expected)
- For one last insult, the final episode (one of the series' finest) is actually OVERSCANNED. The top and bottom of the image don't touch the screen edge and there are junk artifacts playing across the top, ala something you'd see on a bootleg or a work print. I also noticed the first episode of Season 3 has the same issue, minus the artifacts. No doubt other episodes have similar problems, but I wasn't about to waste my time on this set anymore
The above, coupled with the fact that EB couldn't be bothered to number the discs, and gives you a monochrome cover with images from the first season (for third and fourth season content) is beyond incompetence. Fans are better off paying for the out-of-print Acorn releases which have a superior presentation.
UPDATE: I bought the Alliance version of Season 3 (http://www.amazon.com/Lexx-Season-Boxset-Brian-Downey/dp/B0040MGVE8/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1333499347&sr=8-5) and was relieved to discover that the image quality is on par with the Acorn release. I have no reason to believe that their S2 and S4 sets are of lesser quality, so I urge fans to consider these too. Just don't get the Echo Bridge sets, whatever you do.
This season not only had a long running story arc, but the humor was more subdued and focused on the surreal imagery and spiritual idealogies it presented.
The crew was shot into the dark zone after the destruction of the light zone. You find that they were stranded in an empty area with no planets nearby, and no fuel for their ship. So they go into sleep and drift until they find a decent planet. But they are found before they have a chance to wake, but a strange individual named Prince. He and his roadwarrior like lackeys take Stan prisoner and becomes interested in Xev. He takes them to Princetown, his town on Fire.
Fire and Water are a pair of planets that circle each other and share atmosphere that can be traversed by balloons. Fire is hot and unable to sustain life on the surface. So the towns are tall stacks that lift them high enough to make it livable. The areas below are filled with devices to keep the city cool by using slave labor. Water is all water, dotted with towns on the surface. The inhabitants are all living in luxury, giving little thought to the world around them, the future, or the past. They seem to live for the moment and whatever passion drives them.Read more ›
