COOL MINI-SERIES!
This is my favourite TV sci-fi to date! Totally different to your usual Star Trek, this tv programme doesn't take itself seriously Star Trek fashion and the humour is entertaining.

What makes this so great is its originality. This is the virtually the opposite of every cliche you see in sci fi. For example....

1) Stanley Tweedle. He is a coward, but oddly endearing in a way, you have to feel sorry for him. His antics are also ridiculous! He is also the commander of the Lexx and he's definitely no cowboy Captain Kirk.

2) The Lexx. No flash chrome coloured starship, but a gigantic, insect spaceship that eats its prey! It also behaves as though its alive - because it is!

3) 790 robot head. Has more of a personality than Data, in love with Zev, how's that for originality???

4) Kai, the 2000 year old dead Brunnen G 'anti-hero'. His attitude toward Zev is completely the opposite of how a 'normal' hero would behave toward her! And also Zev, being part cluster lizard...

Having only recently found out there is a Lexx series on the net, we've yet to see it here in NZ. This will be the third time the original series has been aired this year! I look forward to seeing it in the (hopefully) near future...
