    I love this show. I used to watch it just whenever I happened to see it on scifi, but I got the miniseries (season 1) and season 2 and I'm watching them straight through. :bowdown:

    It's totally corny, but cool at the same time.

    Also, Eva Habermann and Xenia Seeberg chicks put the Battlestar Galactica chicks to shame. They aren't WHY I watch it, but the eye candy sure doesn't make the show any worse. :mamoru:

    :mamoru: It's really not. You just have to accept it as half comedy and let yourself like it.

    I saw the original "tales from a parallel universe" when it was on showtime (6 episodes, i think). it was fairly cool, but nothing spectacular. When they made the TV show lexx off of it, I checked it out, but quickly realized they took all the cool parts of the original show, dropped them, and then filled the void with crap. at least that's my take on it.

    BUT, the battle hymn of the Brunnen G is badass. It helped make the opening scene of the first show one of the coolest ones I've seen.

    So true, that second season(especially the main character they replaced) was nearly traumatizing, I loved the first season though.

    You guys should give the rest of the series a chance. It's really cool if you follow the story.

    And I have to confess that I think Xev (the replacement) is hotter than Zev (the original). Even though they're both spectacular.

    I gave it a couple chances, but going to earth, meeting Prince, the president and his bimbo, etc. was just too campy and ridiculous for me. Don't get me wrong, I like some funny in my sci-fi, but each episode of Lexx I've ever seen is just ridiculous. Hell, even tales from a parallel universe was kinda lame, but it had just enough cool stuff going on to balance it out.

    Comedy like in firefly or farscape is fine by me, in fact, i love it, but whatever you'd call this stuff Lexx throws at you just doesn't do it for me.

    Well it's definitely campy (intentionally). It's really more weird/funny than anything else.

    As for Prince, he's a really long story arc. He's THE major player for all of season 3. If you didn't catch that whole story, then season 4 will just seem stupid.

    Watching the whole series in order made a world of difference in how I liked the show.

    Eva was spectacular, but Xenia Seeberg has a better body, and came across as a better actress. :o
