Every now and again I decide it’s time to take my brain off in a different direction and take in something that is going to shake out the brain cells. Next such beastie on my list is Lexx.
Now I have seen 4 episodes (one from each series) over the past 6 years so my sample is small and intermittent. My impression though each time was that it was brilliant. Wierd Tick, Dark Tick, Challenging Tick, Interesting but Flawed Characters Tick. That ticks all the boxes of something I want to watch. Did I mention I am a B grade SF Junkie? And that I think David Lynches Dune is cool?
Dead Assasins, Love Slaves, Bug ships that destroys planets and more phallic symbols than you’ll find around a fertility god. Throw them into a wierd universe full of twisted people and well that will get me hooked. I have a thing for flawed characters and they don’t get much more flawed that this lot.
So is it any good? Will it live up to the expectation or will it be a B Grade flop… Let me know what you think and I promise to let you know the final verdict.
