Does anyone else think that the crew was kinda mean to Lexx? Well, not mean exactly, maybe more oblivious. I mean, when Lexx was starving to death they didn't seem to care much. They were annoyed because they couldn't move, but that's it. I know Lexx was just a 'big dumb bug', but still. It just seemed like no one was very concerned.
Lexx was sort of like a big puppy. Dumb, sure, but sweet. And the moths had some sort of awareness too. In Super Nova, the one that Giggerota was eating laughed at her when it left her there to get blown up. I always thought it was kind of horrible how the bugs had all that machinery and metal implanted in them. It just looked so painful. And Lexx and the moths were just so cute! I would have had trouble not treating them all like pets. But then, I wasn't raised in a box. I don't know... maybe they don't have pets in the Light Universe.
I completely agree! I felt very sorry for poor Lexx as they proceeded to not feed him for an entire season. And the moth eaters - no-one seemed to feel sorry for their deaths (Except Xev when she comes across the one on Fire).
I suppose if you're brought up with the equivalent of cars that talk you might not feel so attached to them.
