The tyrants who rule the Light Universe pass their essence onto their successor upon their demise, while their still-conscious brains are kept in a vault; their chief resource is Lexx, the most-powerful mobile weapon in the universe, which can only be commanded only by the keeper of the hand-key. The previous incumbent wiped out the Brunen-G race, except for Kai, whom he kept in a state of amnesiac suspended animation, to be revived by proto-blood for short periods and used as an assassin.

This is not your run-of-the-mill sci-fi story. It is dark (pardon the pun) and basic "good vs evil"...no lofty suppositions or rules to follow. It also possesses an undercurrent of sensual innuendoes that is quite appealing. The violence, although not overly done, is not understated and some may not appreciate the struggle for freedom is sometimes down and dirty. The music, as others have eluded to, is great and the concept of the Lexx and the Dark Zone as a Parallel Universe, interesting. All in all, it is a great series of movies and are worth watching .
