I was wondering what was it about Lexx which got you watching it?

For me it was the 'feel' of the universe. A giant bug which can blow up a planet, walking dead people, robot heads & sex slaves. The weirdness of it being completely different to any sci-fi i'd watched before. I started watching it when it was first on TV in either 98 or 99 by chance as I was channel hopping & caught a few minutes of I Worship His Shadow. I've been obsessed ever since then. No other series has such a colourful cast of characters and insane adventures. The stories were mental but completly brilliant (most at least) and through all its flaws (series 4 ahem) it remains one of if not my all time favourite tv series.

And also, one thing which made me come back for more was Zev, with her blue hair & short skirt. The certainly made me look again when flicking through the channels :D

Anyway, thats a little about why i started watching it. Apart from the pretty lady, reasons i find most people turned it off for. But their loss i say.

Back in late '99 the U.S. Sci fi channel started showing previews, I mostly remember twilight where Kai is sucking the poison out of Xev. It looked really wierd and different and I like sci fi so I thought I'd give it a try. Sci fi aired 4 episodes in a row and showed them 3 times over, of Xev episodes trying to appeal to the male population, so it was obviously for the sex factor. I stuck with the show and really like the quirky and dark humor of it and after awhile that bun of Kai's grew on me and MM was pretty easy on the eye too. :P I thought the writing was brilliant and I laughed many a time. It to this day is one of my favorite television shows.

I have no idea what it was. I just saw it....and couldn't look away. Hard to explain. I guess it was the mixture of my three favorite things: sci-fi, sex, and satire. First episode I saw was in late 2001 during season 4, it was on SPACE in Canada. It was The Rock episode where they land in the maritimes. I remember watching it and thinking....that place looks familiar. When I realized the show was being filmed close to where I lived I couldn't believe it. A cool show being filmed in this neck of the country? Wow. I went back and watched it all from the beginning once the last episode aired. It was fun to see how it all began.

I remember seeing season 3 for the first time and really getting hooked. I was a fan of season 4 but not a super fan. When I went back and saw season 3 is when I really fell in love with the show. Especially the Prince disguised as Kai storyline which WAS A revelation I didn't see coming. It would be nice to be able to watch them all again and not know what was going to happen.

My lifetime passion for Sci-Fi made me tune in.
My fascination with sexy women made me watch.
The bizarre character and clever writing of the show made it memorable.

The first episode of Lexx I saw was IWHS and being of a usually serious mind I thought it was rather pointlessly gratuitous; so I turned to Google and Wiki in an effort to understand it better. It didn't take much reading before it "clicked" and I totally got it; and soon I wanted more violence, sex, cannibalism and most importantly BRAINS!!

I loved the themes, the sets, the costumes, the actors were just brilliant, the story lines ... the un-American take on a typically American-dominated genre. I think most of all I loved the fact that it was more like watching good theatre than episodal TV. And like quite a few fans I soon discovered I quite enjoyed watching MM in action.....
