The Cluster reminds me a lot of the civilization in the science fiction movie Brazil, and the main character of Brazil reminds me a lot of Stanley Tweedle. I wonder if it was an intentional homage?

I really like the Zev character in this. She's spunky. I must say, I prefer Zev over Xev. I think Zev and Kai had much better chemistry than Xev and Kai. I remember an interview with XS in which she stated that she took the role of Xev with the condition that her character be given more personality and not just be a sex object. To me, that's kind of funny and perplexing because I found EH's Zev much more emotional, more vulnerable, and more believably in love with Kai than XS's Xev. (I don't think I've ever used the X key this much before!)

You're right, Xev seemed more like the Booty call type of "I love you" It was all based on the libido not any emotion.

Exactly! Great way to put it. I always wondered of anyone else saw it that way. Also, I dug Zev's blue hair (on her head, not the mirkin). :bigsarc::xevvy:

I don't think I've ever heard it called a mirkin. The hoo ha, the hoochie coochie, yes, but not a mirkin. And I missed it being blue the first time until someone told me so I watched it over again and was like, Whoah.

I think Kai picked up on it. with his different reactions to the deaths of Zev/Xev. Jumping a little ahead of things here but when Zev dies Kai is the one that collects the goo so he can 'Take her home'. When Xev dies it's almost like Kai is trying to deter Stanley from finding a way to bring her back.

Zev loves Kai in spite of the fact that he has a permanent case of impotence. It's more about the man than what's not in the man's pants. She knows that sex is out of the question but still loves him. From the beginning you get the feeling that she will do anything for Kai's welfare and happiness.

A mirkin is a pubic wig :D People used to wear them in Europe way back when, when lice was so rampant that they had to shave all their body hair. Wigs for their heads and for their, as you said, hoo has.

Yeah, in the beginning the dynamic between Zev and Kai is much more caring. Towards the end, Xev kind of treated him like a body guard. Or an appliance. I was missing the emotion in the later episodes. Not from Kai, as he was dead, but from his friends. All the quirky sexiness was great, but the addition of a little heart really makes the difference. They did come full circle though, and the very end was a little more like the beginning.

There's a couple of times in the series where Kai says or reacts in a way that suggests he may be a bit tired of the fact that Xev views him more as sexual object than anything else.

Isn't that funny? They were embarrassed to have no hair, and nowadays we're embarrassed if we have too much! Oh well... we humans are just never happy. :)

Lexx HAS to be remade!!!

IT IS THE BEST SEMI EROTIC SCI-FI TO EXIST EVER. :2567:

Okay, compared to much of the shows we see on TV it was on the budget side, but, it was so imaginatively written and produced. In addition, the actors on there were amazing. Kai, Stan & Both Xevs were amazing.

There is no reason the show cannot be remade. It was left open with the birth of the Little Lexx or 'Lixx' as i like to call it, and there is many shows were remakes have included much of the previous old cast as interesting side characters, to remind viewers of how amazing the show was.

The relationship between Zev/Xev and Kai was bound to be different as the series progressed, just as the relationship between Stan and Zev/Xev changed. It's what happens when you spend a lot of time together. When she first meets Kai she was just made a love slave and had a very romantic view of him, like you do in the first few months or so of a relationship, but that doesn't last, so I think the writers did a pretty good job of dealing with the long term dynamics of 3 people spending practically all of their time together.
She did still love Kai and he knew that, as was shown in Yo Way Yo, when he apologises to her for not being able to love her in the way that she wanted him to and kisses her. The guy who doesn't get motivated, suddenly got the urge to kiss Xev. To me that says a lot!

Lexx will never be remade and for the following reasons:

1. No audience for it anymore, (yes I know the fans here like it but how many millions of dollars will it take just to please about 40 of us?)The original show did NOT get high ratings, and it was only by the grace of Scifi that they had a Season 4. They're no longer interested in even showing re-runs at this point.

2. The cast members have moved on to other things and most of them are not interested in re-hashing their roles.

3. Every single prop, costume, set piece, etc, has been sold off and it would take an avalanche of money to replace them.

4. Paul Donovan no longer has the rights to Lexx or any of it's subsidiaries. The rights lie now with a catalog company based in Canada that has only reissuing DVD's in it's capabilities, and not a studio.

I know when new people join and they're experiencing Lexx for the first time, they forget that the show has been over for 10 years, and it was a great project but all the things that made Lexx what it was are now all gone, so let's just be thankful that it was as fabulous as it was. We don't want a re-invention of the either, it would just suck, plain and simple.

I think Kai understood intellectually what Z/Xev wanted from him. I think that kissing her was a kindness because he was saying goodbye and he knew it would please her. But that doesn't mean he had an urge to do it, as in, he felt romantic towards her. I don't subscribe to the theory that Kai had feelings and they were just suppressed. As he said at one point, "I don't think... the way you think I think."

I like MM's explanation that rather than emotional responses, Kai had affinities. To me, that makes the most sense and is the most interesting. He's a dead cyborg thing. No feelings, just memories of feelings.
