Brilliantly bizarre
14 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Lexx has to be the craziest, strangest, and most bizarre shows in TV history.

It's about 4 characters:

Zev/Xev is a love slave. Stan is level 4 security guard. Kai is the last of his kind, a dead assassin. 790, is a robot head.

Mixed together, they make probably the most ineffective team in history of TV. But that's one of the things that gives this series flavor: it is always fun to see how they interact with each other and things around them. And also, their bond grows stronger progressively in the series, even if they don't notice it and refuse to acknowledge it.

Then, there is the all-present sexual frustration. This series is never afraid to deal with sex, In fact, one could say that the story is driven by sex. But, don't make that mistake; this show deals with love, pain, suffering, romance, evil, good, society... And it's one of the most intelligent ones out there!

This is one of the best series ever made. But i must warn you, it's not for everyone. I'm recommending this only to the open-minded people, who are not afraid to deal with sexual themes, or other bizarre stories this show has.

Also, it's not for you if you're seeking pure sci-fi. Lexx turns the whole sci-fi genre upside-down.
