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.

The first episode,"Brizon" is dark but good. Brizon is a *very* interesting old fart--I know some like him--and some of the political comments are a little overt. Plenty of edge-of-your-seat tension, and some comedy relief delivered by (surprise, surprise) Kai, whose will has been enslaved by Brizon. "The End of the Universe" is action-packed. Every crew member shows how incredibly resourceful they can be, and the special effects are breathtaking. This episode really shows how "Lexx" is one of the best sci-fi shows out there. There is literally something for everyone--action, humor, drama, and even 3-kleenex moments. A must see!:)

Having watched a lot of sci-fi in the past,the thought of watching lexx was fairly laughable to me, but after sitting down to watch it I found myself getting more and more engrossed in it.Between the strange song that kai always ends up singing,(which you will find popping into your head when you really do not wish it too!) and the weird outfits which the whole cast seem to relish wearing, (or not as the case may be!)It is an amusing and yet addictive attempt at sci-fi which strangely works.
