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 ...

Eva Habermann is the best kept secret in the movie industry!!!
25 July 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Why Eva Habermann is still working in Europe is beyond me. After watching this series I expected every casting director and agent in America beating her door down with offers. A breakout role for her, as Zev Bellringer, this series is the tale of a small band of rebels fighting through and fleeing from the evil leader "His Shadow" and his followers. This fantasy has all the elements of a good flick; Action, adventure, suspense, comedy and creative thinking by the writers. My favorite, never-before-seen, concept was the use of half insect/half machine spacecraft. With all Lexx (Tales From a Parallel Universe in the US)has to offer, my interest was held fast by Eva. I was smitten. I can't remember seeing a sexier, more refreshing female on the screen. She is a much needed breath of fresh air. Don't just take my word for it. See it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
