Review:

The living ship Lexx and its misfit crew are an absurd anti-Star Trek: Voyager, a motley collection of space cadets wandering the backwaters of television sci-fi, inadvertently (and often hilariously) bringing death and destruction to everyone they meet.

The four episodes on Lexx: Series 2, Volume 3 show that the lusty appetites of sad sack captain Stanley Tweedle, half-lizard love slave Xev, and lovesick robot head 790 are in full swing. In 791 790 salvages the well-endowed trunk of a decapitated cyborg found on a crash-landed prison ship, only to find this is one body with a mind (not to mention a kinky, insatiable sex drive) all its own. In Wake the Dead, they find five lost-in-space teenage joyriders in suspended animation and let them loose aboard Lexx. One prank-loving idiot proceeds to order the reanimated assassin Kai to kill everyone on the ship--and to his surprise turns the philosophical zombie into a wisecracking slasher movie killer. Nook may be short for "nookie," which Xev finally gets from an all-male enclave of isolated monks they discover on the sole island of a deep space Waterworld. Needless to say, her intrusion into the monastic lifestyle stirs some unfamiliar feelings among the brothers, who find her a very strange and arousing man indeed. Finally in Norb, the dreaded insect king Mantrid, reborn in the first episode as a half-human killing machine with an army of flying arms, engages the Lexx in a fatal "game" that involves devouring the ship alive.

The DVD also features another 10-minute, behind-the-scenes featurette, short cast and creator interviews, and the third chapter of Rated LEXX, a TV special created for the Sci Fi Channel to introduce the characters and recap the origins. --Sean Axmaker

From the Back Cover:

Sexy sci-fi with a sense of humor and no higher purpose whatsoever. A crew of intergalactic misfits roams the weirdest possible parallel universe in a giant space ship that's actually a genetically enhanced bug. On the run, they're looking for a new home in the rare moments when they aren't hoping for a little action or dodging annihilation. An international cult hit and SCI FI Channel favorite that skates along the outside edge of the genre. With as many special effects per episode as most sci-fi series have in a whole season.

Episodes:
2.9 - 791 - When the crew responds to a ship in distress, they find a headless cyborg who seems like the answer to 790's erotic dilemma.
2.10 - Wake the Dead - Five rowdy teenagers camp out aboard the LEXX and drive a crew member to the brink and beyond.
2.11 - Nook - The crew arrives on a planet where Xev is the first woman its monastic all-male inhabitants have seen in 100 years.
2.12 - Norb - An eerily familiar young boy the crew picks up turns out to be an inhuman infiltrator sent by Mantrid to start the "game".
