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 ...

While not the most exciting it will appeal greatly to sci fi fetishists and lovers of the obscure
30 March 2005 | by eric-669See all my reviews

The series is enjoyable for its darkly entertaining sci-fi themed fetishist nature. It isn't meant to be deeply thought provoking in the normal sense, it is designed to be outside the box and provide an alternative to Kevin Sorbo firing blasts at everything. I enjoy it thoroughly for the mere fact that it does not follow normal conventions for a science fiction show and it dares to write story lines that appeal to the subcultures of sci-fidom. The plot is not the most inventive, but the banter and atmospheric situation of the show makes for a very enjoyable watch, especially late night when it normally airs. i highly recommend it to people who like science fiction that thinks outside normal sci-fi convention.
