Having fled to the chaotic Dark Zone at the climax of "I Worship His Shadow," the motley fugitives on the planet-killing, living spaceship Lexx head off for Brunnis, the lifeless planet that was zombie warrior Kai's home world 2,000 years ago. Kai is dying (well, he's already dead, but he's running out of fuel), and they search the library for help. Unfortunately the library is more interested in expanding its collection via the memories of its visitors, even if it has to suck the brains out of their bodies to do it. Tim Curry costars as Poet Man, a cocky hologram tour guide miffed that he was left behind during the evacuation (all because of a splitting hangover), and Ellen Dubin returns as the cannibal queen Giggerota, an unwelcome Lexx stowaway who can't decide whether to feast on the living brains in the hold of the ship or team up with them in a hijacking scheme. The TV film was originally titled Super Nova for reasons that become obvious as the planet's dying sun moves toward its final burst of glory. It's an impressive effect, one of the highlights of a show that often gets stuck in talky, static scenes. This episode is kind of a letdown compared to the action-packed first episode, but it's not without its charms (like Zev's gratuitous R-rated shower scene--hubba hubba!). The next in the series is "Eating Pattern." --Sean Axmaker
