Found this review today: http://totalscifionline.com/reviews/6293-lexx-the-complete-series

And then I found this listing on Amazon's UK site: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lexx-Complete-DVD-Xenia-Seeberg/dp/B004JESO2E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1301684981&sr=8-1


I don't see any listings for a North American release.  Looks like a nice set!  Has all the extra features, too.  Release date is listed as March 28, 2011 - so it's just come out.

I guess we'll have to wait a little longer. At least it looks like someone dragged it out of the back of the closet with a 'new' release.:0-02:

I just purchased this one. Hopefully it'd be like the old one, if not better...ie: HD on DVDs at least.

I bought all the dvds from deepdiscountdvd.com. It looks like they still have some of them, as well as "The Complete Series"

Can you tell me how the extras compare to the new AUS release? 

Here is a review of the extras on the AUS release (which I am hesitant to buy due to minor cuts in season 1 in the previous AUS edition):

Season One: Each of the telemovies is accompanied by a fifteen-minute featurette (produced as part of the production's contractual obligations with their UK video distributor). Each covers a separate element of the production. The first explores the genesis of Lexx, including an original promo short Donovan produced to sell the concept – with Downey already present as Stanley – while Donovan, Hirschfeld and Gigeroff discuss their careers and approach to the show. The second looks at the design elements of the show, and how CGI is used to create virtual sets – still a new concept at the time – and the way multiple designers were utilised to create the show's visual style. The third featurette focuses on the cast, with comments from Downey, McManus and Habermann , and yes, one of the three drops the old cliché of the crew being "like a big family", but it sounds genuine enough. Doreen Jacobi talks about her tight leather costume and getting the part of Wist after the original actress broke her leg. Rutger Hauer calls his character "a dressed-up Dennis the Menace", while Hirschfeld discusses the challenges inherent in being the voice, eyes and mouth of 790. The final segment looks at the participation of Malcolm MacDowell ("These Canadians are a pain in the ass! I can't wait to get home!") and the boundless enthusiasm of "Giga Shadow" director Robert Sigl. The three head writers also tease where Lexx might go as a weekly series.

Season Two: The three-part featurette, The Making of Lexx: The Series is spread across the discs, and covers cast changes, writing, makeup and visual effects. It's more formally-structured than the featurettes on the first season and more of the EPK talking heads stuff that you'd find elsewhere, but it's full of interesting info, particularly how the field of human heads in "Lyekka" was achieved. Short interviews are included with Michael McManus, Paul Donovan, Brian Downey, director of photography Les Krisan and a reliably bitchy, in-character chat with 790. Lastly, a season three teaser rounds things off.

Season Three: Another making-of featurette (this one in four parts, and produced for the season's Canadian broadcast), again spread across the discs. This looks at the challenges in structuring the season as one long story. Downey, Bennett, McManus and Dubin discuss where their characters go in this season, along with the physical issues involved in playing their parts. The unpleasantness of acting while suspended from harnesses (or underwater, for that matter) is discussed, along with the technical challenges of depicting convincing nipple-clamping on film and the erotic sensation of acting while buried in dirt. No, really. Episode directors Bill Fleming and Bruce McDonald talk about production logistics, and the show's move into location filming for the first time. The experience of filming in various environmental conditions in Nova Scotia, Berlin and Namibia are explored at some length. There are brief but informative interviews included with editor Stewart Dowds (which features a few glimpses of season four), videomatics director Peter Gaskin (exploring the pre-visualiastion of the VFX sequences, mostly using glued-together crud from flea markets) and visual effects director Alex Bushby.

Season Four: Surprisingly, the longest season gets the smallest batch of extras. There's a couple of deleted scenes from "Fluff Daddy", an eleven minute wrap reel (featuring bloopers, crew shenanigans and a dog manning an edit suite), and a closing message from Paul Donovan, which sums up his philosophy behind the show.
