5.0 out of 5 stars LEXX - THE COMPLETE SERIES. 7 April 2012
By alpha
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
in my opinion this is one of the best sci-fi tv series ever made. maybe not every bodys taste given how weird it is. but thats the biggest part of it's charm and apeal with it's quirky and weird sense of humor. i remembered watching it when it was aired on the sci-fi channel and i always looked forward to seeing it each week. now i have the boxset i can see it whenever i want. now on to the technical details of this boxset. this set is complete unlike most boxsets from a lot of companys out there at present. you heard right the first time" this set is completely uncut nudity violence the lot all left intact. just a small change made to the first pilot episode where the CG affects have been changed and the robot head is given a voice to explain the scenes. apart from that this is the best version of lexx available as from what i've red on various forums the other versions of lexx released by other studios have been butchered "i hate butchered dvd boxsets" so if your looking for this series this one is the best version to buy given that it's truly complete.
i found the picture and sound quality to be good contrary to some reviews . sure it's ashame they didn't release it on blu-ray as thet would have been nice. but season 4 is shot in HI-DEF and you do notice the difference as it looks very good for a HI-DEF to dvd transfer. it's not all good though because it's time for the bad news. i found this dvd boxset to be doged with a repetitive problem.
i got this set from amazon and it had multiple scratches on most of the discs in the set and they where also faulty with the picture feezing and digital artifacts. i assumed i just got unlucky and this was a one off so i returned it to amazon for a replacement
i waited and finaly got the new replacement but the same problem again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wide ranging turn of the century scifi epic 28 July 2011
By Crookedmouth HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have little idea which series was airing when I first picked up on Lexx, because it never really appealed to me at the time. I do remember that it showed on (I think) Channel 5 at some ungodly hour of the night in that odd hiatus between having finished watching Eurotrash and finally dragging myself upstairs to bed. It was certainly a head-turner with its (at the time) spectacular CGI-SFX and equally spectacular leading lady. At the same time it had a strange "feel" to it, being camp, complex and obviously not an "American" show (why that should count as a negative is beyond me now). Another count against it was that it seemed important to have seen the preceding episodes in order to understand what the he11 was going on. At the time it seemed easiest to write it off as an interesting oddity and just go to bed.

Now, looking for decent and engaging TV drama to watch, its potential called to me over the decades and I can (imperfectly) see these apparent failings as real strengths. I bought Lexx - Series 1 and only then discovered that it was also available in the much more pocket-friendly form of a 4-season boxset.

Lexx - the series
=================
Just to set the scene, Lexx ran over four seasons between its debut in 1997 and its closure in 2002 and it follows the adventures of a small, eclectic band of misfits as they travel the universe in their enormous (and stolen) spaceship, The Lexx.

By Keith_Joseph HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Lexx is a rather fantastic organic space warship built using technology derived from the Insect Wars. The Lexx is `the most destructive force in the two known universes'. This excellent TV series starts with the four 2 hour TV movies (aired in 1997) and then runs to three TV seasons beyond that (aired from 1998 to 2000) - all of which are on this complete Lexx four season DVD set. In some respects the follow-on TV series never quite re-captured the startlingly dark and surreal world shown in the original TV `films', although with the finale of season 2 and the following season 3 on the planets of Fire and Water it gets pretty close.

In the first two movies `His Divine Shadow' is introduced, a rather nasty ruler of the League of 20,000 Planets. He is a being who can transfer his essence from one body to another, making him effectively immortal. His Shadow took over after the Brunnen-G had destroyed the Insects in a great war thousands of years ago. Kai, last of the Brunnen-G, has been His Shadow's most deadly assassin for the last few thousand years and is on-board the Lexx when Stanley H Tweedle (a lowly security guard), Zev Bellringer (part human, part Cluster Lizard) and 790 (an android head with incidental `love-slave' programming) come aboard. The series is a strange mix of dark SciFi (in the more recent Tales of Riddick mould), black humour and German soft-porn movie. But it works. If you haven't seen any Lexx before and fancy it, I'd buy this complete series asap as Lexx DVDs have a habit of going out of production for long periods (if you have seen Lexx before, no doubt you own these DVDs already). In the final two movies of season one, `His Divine Shadow' causes even more jip, defying prophesy to create the Giga-Shadow.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't usually write reviews but,
Lexx is so unique and clever that its definitely worth a look. It has elements of Blakes 7, Star Trek, Dune and farscape but is much more original and witty that them all. Read more
