Lexx, a biological spacecraft ‘the most destructive force in the two universes’ grown from a single DNA transported in the tooth of a complete idiot called Stanley H Tweedle. Together with Kai, a dead assassin – the last of the Brunnen-Gee, a love slave called Xev and a robot head steal the Lexx and defeat the insect order of ‘His Divine Shadow’(series one). Eventually the ‘Light universe’ is destroyed but not before the Lexx and its crew escape to the Dark universe via a wormhole(series two). After they destroy the twin planets of Fire and Water( series three) they eventually reach Earth(series four). This is a huge story with some good concepts. Although there are weaknesses in the plot it is supported by the psychoanalytical concepts weaved through the narrative.
The concept of the Lexx being a biological mother machine, the birthing concept of the cryochambers, the Light universe being ruled by ‘His Divine Shadow’ and the contradictions between the two universes (the Earth is in the Dark universe ruled by God ‘The Divine Light’) among other concepts all serve to build an intriguing world. Obviously there are far more concepts and subplots involved in the story which is why this series makes such compelling viewing. It is a pity the story ended after the fourth season.
