Lexx: Series 2, Vol. 5 (2002)

Once you’ve been bitten by the Lexx bug, wacky wonders await you with every new episode. This volume compiles the last four episodes of the show’s second season (1998), and you’ll marvel at what this Canadian-German coproduction gets away with, given its modest budget and the ingenuity of its three-man creative team of “Human Beans” led by creator and frequent writer-director Paul Donovan. The show’s eagerness to experiment is proven in “Brigadoom,” a sci-fi musical that tells Kai’s backstory entirely in song—with surprisingly impressive results. “The Net” finds the Lexx trapped in a giant spiderlike snare, leaving Stanley (Brian Downey) under a dangerous alien influence. “Brizon” and “End of the Universe” end the second series as the Lexx is inexorably drawn into the Dark Zone after an epic fight with Mantrid’s multiplying drone arms. Confused? Don’t worry—with enough teasing sex talk, offbeat humor, and wild special effects, Lexx can seduce even the most resistant sci-fi purist. —Jeff Shannon
