Second Season Winner

"The first season is the best but the second season is quite good. Pay attention to the other "real people" that have reviewed it. First of all LEXX was out long before Farscape so the ridiculous line about sound familiar is out of context. LEXX is unique in its approach to SciFi. It is far more graphic in violence and erotic behavior than other series you will see. I have purchased the first two seasons on DVD since I think they are the best. The rest are worth seeing but I am not sure about buying."
Grainy transfer mars otherwise great series.

"4.5 stars. I just want to note here that there are numerous scenes where the transfer to DVD is less than perfect. Other times, particularly the special effects shots, the transfer is pristine. This is possibly, arguably, the most original Sci-fi series ever created and it was a mild letdown to see a flawed transfer. However, all these episodes are the uncut versions, and I seriously don't remember this much sexual innuendo(oftentimes bizarre sexual innuendo). But this show always was a little more than left-of-center, which is certainly why it appealed to me so much. Just when I thought there was nothing original on TV, along comes this weird series in the 2a.m. time-slot like a warm wind filled with fresh air. For beginners I suggest getting the first series volumes for a more in-depth backstory on these strangely captivating characters. After that, this is an excellent progression. The stories are crazy and fun, and each volume here contains over three hours of footage. This series has great return value, it's just too bad the transfer is less than perfect."
So worth it!

"Wow I just love to be able to pick what episode I want. The DVD 'extras' are excellent too. This series had a very original creative element I have never seen anywhere before, you could tell the LEXX set designers and wardrobe people were very professional in their creative work making cheesy and tacky look so very out of this world good! The special effects are like a cross between Flash Gordon meets the Matrix meets Austin Powers! Only it is isn't, it's all LEXX and all original. By the way, saying this is geared towards European teens? is way off, what a lame review!, this is for every Sci Fi fan that ever wanted a break from the typical creature vs. Earth story line, it is more like a psycadelic soap opera set in the future in a galaxy far, far away from every day Earth life, a great way to 'escape' from everyday life."

"It is my opinion that the second series of Lexx is the best of the 4. In this series you get a collection of stand-alone episodes that only hint at an undelying plotline that reveals itself fully in the last few episodes. The Stand alone episodes bring out the risqué humour this series is known for. Each episode is a new adventure and are well worth spending the time to watch.The special features are bare minimum. If you purchase DVDs based on the special features all you're really getting is quizzes based on the episodes on the DVD."
