Something reminded me of Lexx the other day, and I've found myself missing that weird, awesome show. Any other fans on GT?
If you've never seen it, it was a strange Canadian/German show. (How was it both? I don't really know.) It managed to be simultaneously campy, terrible, funny, amazing, and at times actually touching. Plus the first season was practically softcore porn before SciFi got a hold of it. If you're the sort of person who avoids things with trigger warnings, this one probably isn't for you. It gets pretty disturbing at times.
And the spaceship was shaped like a penis. And everything on it was shaped like a penis. So... there's that. (image from deviantart)
Plus sometimes it was pretty dark comedy, which I love.
It's hard not to love Zev/Xev. She was sentenced to be programmed as a sex slave after refusing to be the virgin bride to some asshole. She managed to dodge most of the programming and became a renegade. She's pretty badass and fun to watch. Also she's part lizard.
The show also managed to make me attracted to a reanimated corpse. I used to feel weird about it, but then I accepted it.
I mean, look at him. Yeah, Kai's undead and part machine or something. But really. Look at him.
And why is there sometimes smoke coming out of his crotch? Eh, don't dwell on it.
The other two main characters annoyed me most of the time, but they were part of the package deal. And sometimes they were funny. But mostly kinda creepy...
I'd propose a viewing party, but unfortunately it is no longer on Netflix instant as of last month, nor is it on Hulu. Maybe it'll come back? Although the ones on Netflix weren't great, because they were edited for TV broadcast (not in all their original debaucherous glory). Amazon Prime has it for $0.99 per episode. It also looks like it's on youtube with episodes sectioned up, which might be the best option without resorting to torrents. But that may not last if anyone with the rights gets wind of it.
PS I was kind of surprised that there weren't better Lexx gifs out there. The ones above are pretty much the only decent ones I found. Aside from these gems:
