Storyline

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. Into this background comes anti-hero Stanley Tweedle, an ignored non-entity clerk, who misses an appointment and is branded a criminal. In the dungeons, overweight Zev has been convicted of not fulfilling wifely duties, and is being transformed into a gorgeous, svelt love-slave. Meanwhile, captured terrorist Thodin, due for public execution, escapes with his gang's help, and causes chaos, setting into motion Tweedle's accidental theft of Lexx and new ownership of the hand-key, Zev's escape with her ...

The best morbid humor in the universe
29 September 2000 | by (Portland, USA) – See all my reviews

Lexx is one of the greatest sci-fi shows to come along in years. The plots are fantastic while the visuals are breathtaking. It is anti-Star Trek and very anti-Star Wars and that's the way it should be. Life is short in the world of LEXX and it is almost as if it was lifted from the pages of HEAVY METAL. I love this show and it's weirdness captures my interest everytime I see it.
