Lexx Series One "1.0: I Worship His Shadow" (2000) Review
(More customer reviews)I am a huge fan of Lexx. I really think it is one of the best shows I've ever seen on TV. I got into it around the middle of the second season & became an addict after that. I have all of the DVD's & have seen every episode (even the movies) multiple times. I plan to review each DVD, each episode, one by one. So here's my review for Series 1, Volume 1
Episode 1.1: I Worship His Shadow -This is it, the beginning of the show Lexx. The first "season" consisted of 4 mini-movies & this is the first one in the series. A great first episode, where you learn about the history of the Kai, Stan & Xev. It's a long story but I'll try to summarize. Kai's people, the Brunnen-G, get destroyed by the Divine Shadow. Kai was killed and re-animated (with this stuff called Proto-Blood) & made into an assain for his shadow. Stan was a part of a group of heretics fighting against the Divine Shadow, but Stan got caught & lost some codes that ended up killing lots of his people, the Divine Order kept him around in case they ever needed more information & made him a lowly security guard on the cluster. Zev was deserted by her parents & put in a wife bank. She got sent to the cluster & was sentenced to become a love slave, but something went wrong & she became part Cluster Lizard. Basically this mini-movie shows all of this background, plus it shows how they 3 end up together & how they get the Lexx (The Lexx being the ship they fly in, it's a living Bug that need to eat & can blow up planets with ease. It was meant to be a weapon for his Divine Shadow). Of course stealing the Lexx makes The Divine Shadow mad & he chases after the crew. It's a great episode & really shows the history behind the show. It sets up the other min-movies & the series really well. It's a great story & I think the best of the 4 mini-movies of the first season. Check it out if you can, especially if you liked the series.
