Hi my name is kyle :) and im from England.

Just recently watched every single episode of Lexx from season 1 to 4, and i absolutely loved every minute of it, truly one of, if not THE best sci fi program ever.

I loved how it was really nothing like anything else, im so used to cheesy American made, high budget series which get plugged to death.

So in honour of Lexx, i would like to start a little list, ill give you a few examples, its simply called...

You know when you watched too much Lexx when....

- You can't get Yo Way Yo out of your head, and you start singing it at work

- When your stomach rumbles, and you say.. I.. am very hungry... Stan

- Your searching for something, and you start saying... Bug Bomb.. Searching... Bug Bomb.. Malfunction

- When you get asked to do something, so you say.. The dead do not..

- You eat something delicious, and you think about Lyekka saying, She was tasty :)

Let me know if you think of anymore ;)

Hello kylos. Nice to meet you. I'm also a recent convert. What a great show, and yeah, I too often hear an internal narrator that says "the dead do not do..." so and so. :D

You know you've watched too much Lexx when you think beehives on men might not be a complete fashion faux pas.

You've watched too much Lexx when you walk into your local fetish wear shop and ask if the corset you have your eye on comes in cluster lizard.

You know you watched too much Lexx, when you start calling your chess pieces characters out of lexx.

Its difficult to decide on a favourite episode right now, season 1 and 2 are pure brilliance, 1-1 1-3 'Eating Pattern' and 1-4 ' Gigashadow' are awesome.

Season 4 had 2 episodes which drew me in so much.

The first one was the Game, i am a big chess player, have been since i was very young and used to play for the Yorkshire county team, got many trophies and medals from playing that game, so to watch an episode dedicated to one crucial game of chess was awesome for me, and i liked how they explained each move.

Prince started the game well, Kai was on the defensive and did not want to push forward, Princes mistakes were the fact that he decided not to bring out his king side knight early on, and castling Queenside (0-0-0), which enabled Kai to attack him on the queenside where he was weak.

He had the chance to take knights in the middle of the board, which would have put Prince ahead, but he decided to keep attacking and almost beat Kai.

The checkmate move from Kai i saw 3-4 moves before, but it was avoidable, Prince fell into the trap when kai sacrificed his Queen, for an immortal dead guy hes not at good as chess as he says lol.

The very last episode was also very sad but a great way to end it i think, i wish it didnt have to end there, but at least Stan and Xev survive on Little Lexx, and Kai finally gets to die, with a good laugh :)

'the game' is magnificent!

that, brigadoom, IWHS, eating pattern, and a couple from season 3 are my faves.

meanwhile, I'm afraid you've lost me on the chess talk. clueless! I just adore the idea of 'the game', and the way it was rendered. a standalone piece just like brigadoom.

That episode was like an easy guide to the basics of chess, they explained how every piece moved, and why each player was doing their move.

In real chess this would not happen, you cant just blatantly explain every single move you do, its a game of silence, but i guess it would have made the episode a bit boring :P

Yeah, I liked the Game too. Its pretty much lifted off of Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal when the knight plays against death. Nice how that foreshadowed the final episode. Wish they made the connection more blatant though.

I play chess, but always lose, so I wasn't really paying too much attention to the moves.

i might just watch that episode again real soon lol, i was trying to analyze the game as it was going, and the 4 or 5 moves near the end for prince seemed really odd to me.

Really Kai should have lost that game, Prince got cocky though, i wish that guy would just died by the end of season 3 lol

I went to a websitse done by someone who watched that episode and had the actual original game moves and there IS a difference. The original game had different moves towards the end of the game, but Black still won.

Hah!  Sometimes I'll blurt out "I'm dead.  I have no future," and it gets weird looks from my friends.  Well, it's funny to me anyway.  :cool:

Fellow Yorkshire person?

You know you've watched too much Lexx when you start humming the Brunnen G war chant when stressed....

I can't get enough of Kai... I am watching it non-stop and just... I'm doomed because I'm supposed to write my MA thesis!!! I'm an early riser, so I usually watch an episode in about 6AM; today I dismissed myself from any intellectual activity, which is so UNlike me that it scares me! The only hope and consolation I have is my advisor's brace that will spring immediately if I don't meet the deadline, and this is far worse than facing a Cluster lizard. Now... Back to the Lexx!

I'll use the phrase "I do not think the way you think I think" on my defense, it will be priceless! :xgroupwave2: :hlight:
