I forget now even the official story...and the reason why MM laughed.  I don't even recall why the image was flipped at this time.

Drat, I wish Valdron was still with us.  Somewhere.

As far as the reason all the German actors didn't appear in the final season, the money was coming from the English, and English actors were coming since that is where the money was from...it's as simple as that, President Priest notwithstanding. 

Yup, the final season of Lexx was a production between Canada and England, and thus the Germans for the most part were not included.  The actors come where the money comes from, apparently.

The reason Living Kai was like he was was because he was missing part of his his personality...that's my thesis, and I'm sticking to it until someone comes up with a better one.  Dead Kai holds a part of Kai that would make both of them complete and one person...that didn't happen until Kai was made truly alive again by Prince, and perhaps that's why he laughed at the end.

It was a great moment that brought tears to my eyes when it happened the first time.  And sometimes still does...:(

Edit:  my quote function isn't working for some reason, looks like I am answering a question I've answered before...oopsie.

Actually, PE, it was the U.S. that came up with the money for season 4, Sci fi came up with 24 million dollars, not England, as far as I knew England/UK didn't have anything to do with any monies in regards to making more lexx.

Thanks for setting me straight...then why the Canadian/British actors?  How come no American ones? 

We do have some, you know...I myself wanted to see Geraint Wyn Davies show up in the last season.  That would have been a reunion from the very first real episode of Forever Knight, sort of:  McManus and Davies.

GWD is good with the bad guys now.  His ingenue days are past and he is giving great evil now.  He's actually no longer Canadian, either.  This fourth of July was his first anniversary of becoming a U.S. citizen, bless him.

I just wanted to see him on Lexx.  He has a wonderful sense of humour.  Plus, he and MM could have played duets...on pianos, or piano and guitar.  I have a rich fantasy life, don't I?  :blush3:

But, it was not to be, cherie.

:grrr-sign:

Wasn't the laughter unscripted and just what MMTHWACK happened to do when he found himself on the floor?  And then the Beans just decided to keep it and put it in?

I'm distressed I don't remember every little detail any longer.  What a supreme bummer.

I don't recall that it, I think it was just part of the script.  But I do recall when he was filming the masturbation scene in Speaking Parts his foot accidentally kicked over a lamp and he started laughing, and they decided to keep that part in the film.

I assure you that I'm not confusing the two incidents.  I believe it happened again.  Geez, inappropriate laughter much, dude?

I'm pretty convinced the laugh in YWY was scripted. He seemed to recognize that the Time Prophet was right when she said that it would all happen again, and it did. He rammed his ship into the asteroid and was thrown thru the windscreen and died looking at the Higgs-Bosun device, and saw the 131313131313 listed, another joke for the type 13 planet. I think it was an ironic laugh, personally.

Also, as for the "Living Kai", it's obvious that he's emotionally and mentallly unbalanced. Having the stain of having killed thousands of people against your will might do that to you.  It's obvious that if the other Kai had become alive and stayed that way, he would not have been able to deal with the crimes he'd committed on behalf of the Divine Shadlow. Something like that would have indeed made him suicidal or so psychotic that he wouldn't have been able to function as a normal human being.

:dancea:

But none of the people on the planet remembered their pasts.  My belief is still that he didn't have all of his katra, his soul his marbles, his whatever-it-is that makes us whole people.  Dead Kai was walking around with the rest of that.

Neither one of them was whole, and that is another reason Assassin Kai wanted to die.  Of course, that's just my opinion.

As what's his name always says, I could be wrong.

I would have liked to see where the original 'fan rant' fitted into the fluff daddy ep. That may have had some bearing on living Kai's neurotic behavior.

I personally would have liked to see Lexx go on after they destroyed earth. To the best of my knowledge, that would have been unique in scifi. On the other hand, an S5 would have looked a lot like S2, with Stan & Xev looking for a new home.

I have the actual script for that EP where the entire rant and subsequent shots were never filmed. I can either upload it to the MM.com site as a text file or email the whole thing to you..:0-02:

That's interesting. Was this the exact number of 13's? If so, they add up to 24, which, when flipped is 42:D

Could you upload it as a text file, I'd be interested in reading it as well.
