Lexx Rules!
12 July 2009 | by (seattle washington USA) – See all my reviews

I Worship His Shadow is the first episode of the Lexx Series, which started out as four 90 plus minute movies on the Showtime network. Episode 1, I worship His Shadow, goes into the history of the characters that make up the series and the background of the Light Universe.

The first movie is the best out of the 4. The light universe where the story begins is pretty dark and twisted. The music is one of the best parts of the series and this episode is no exception. Any fan of the Lexx series must see where it all begins to really appreciate the series.

Dark, twisted, loud, insane and amazing I worship his shadow is all of these things.

Now re-released on DVD through Amazon.
