Welcome to Lexxvese Delyth. Kai seems to have that affect on the female sex.

I like dark and mysterious Kai I think he rocks the hair as the undead Kai then when he was alive. At first I disliked his colorful costume but later ended up tolerating it. Still not to crazy about it but the interact work on it does make him stand out. Letting you know he is very important person in both live and dead sides. But I am more attracted and intrigued by gothic undead Kai lol. As are all the other women he has all over him on season 3-4. LOL, I love his dancing and singing a lovely voice he has. MM is very talented you can feel the passion when he sings. Drool I like dead Kai lol his manner is alluring no matter how hard I fight it.

My first time watching LEXX was about three weeks ago, I found it on Netflix. It was the first movie, which I wasn't really paying too close attention as I assumed it was another terrible Netflix offering. Every time I looked over at the TV, I thought "Man, this is weird!!". I was not paying close attention because I was also working at the time. I was working through most of the show really the first time around, so have only given the entire show half of my attention, it's a weird way of watching TV. Anyways, the first time I saw it, I couldn't believe how I had never heard of it, and how I've seen all of sci fi and know of all of it, so was very shocked to run across a show like this which I hadn't really even heard of. In fact, all I'd heard of it before was from the convention add on creationent.com, but never clicked on it because I didn't know what it was for.

In any case, welcome to the lexxverse. I am also very new.

I saw a few episodes when it first aired. I was baby sitting and the people had cable.
Would you believe the character that was most memorable to me at the time was Stan "the Man" tweedle. I thought he was the funniest character ever.
Later, When I was able to see the whole series, Kai, Zev/Xev, Stan, became my obsession.

The first season of the television series «LEXX» I looked a long time. Don't remember when. Since 10 years ago. Probably. Even then, he impressed me by its uniqueness. It's a wonderful fantastic story.

Which captures the attention and not let go. Happy and nice game of actors. I wanted to see the continuation of the series. And that's the last of a series. Kai finds soul and heroically died, and Stan and Zev sent to a young Lexx search for your new home. And how sad was that it was all over. I wanted to continue. But it is not. Or is there?

Russian inventors cut footage from the TV series «Lexx» and «Star wars», voiced them and made the continuation. Funny! There is, in my opinion, even the version with English subtitles.

And now one of my favorite fan video.

Very, very, very many kisses:

It’ll be logical to start from the very beginning.
Does anyone have a mother who is teaching? I do. One of my mother’s degrees is in the Russian language and literature. So, I just didn’t have any other options but to read and read a lot. When I was too small to read, my family did it for me. We had so-called literature evenings, literature tea lunches and, of course, time for a story before going to bed (the content depended on who was responsible for me that evening, they read fairy-tales, detectives, novels, Western and European authors) . It sounds weird and it was weird. I knew the whole school literature program long before going to the first grade. And when I mentioned that I was a bit tired of classic, my dad (step-father) started reading the Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s stories with me (they are legends in our Russian sci-fi literature), when I went to the first grade one of my aunts presented me a book written by Ray Bradbury and when I went to the fifth grade, my mother started the Poe’s project with me. I read a given episode and wrote my thoughts about it in a diary, after finishing the whole story or poem I took my notes and we discussed them with my mom. Than my father (a biological one) brought some cassettes with strange movies and I fell in love, watching all these curious things. (the only exception was The Empire Strikes Back and I still don’t like the Star wars)
So, when I first came across Babylon-5 I was destined to love it. When we returned to Russia I found out many people who loved Babylon-5, it’s still extremely popular here (in comparison with the USA for sure).
And here, at last, comes the Lexx. Knowing my love to a sci-fi genre my mother called me when she saw something weird and disgusting on TV (it was the first episode, season 1). I started watching it and…wait a minute, it’s absolutely different from everything I’ve ever seen. I was waiting for the next episode as if I was mad. I never analyzed it the way I did with everything else. I simply took whatever there was there by granted. When I came to Germany to visit my father, I found out that he knew the Lexx too. He even took me with him to a performance organized in a garage by some lunatics about the Lexx (though it was so …hm… pornographic that I try not to remember it at all).
From time to time I met the Lexx in my life. In the literature University (I didn’t study there, but many teachers were my family’s friends) there was group of students who wrote short plays about the Lexx and from time to time I visited them. I tried to become a part of some forums, but there were two things that burdened me greatly: Kai obsession and a certain self-destructive philosophy among many members. So, I kept my love to the Lexx in private. Thanks to our Russian Internet I always have a free on-line access to any season and it was enough.
With time my ideas and views are changing and the same is happening to my understanding of the “Lexxverse”. And now I reached a period in my life when I just feel by my bones that I need to express my thoughts and feelings.
Sci-fi as a genre is a tool for mortal people to defeat a death and experience the future. When it comes to the Lexx, it’s obviously not the future I want, but it’s becoming more and more possible taking into account all these stuff that’s around us. Speaking of the reality, sometimes it seems that these are we, who might have been the forefathers of the Insects race. And the Earth depicted in the Lexx is not our planet, but one that has a lot in common with ours.
Something like this. I know that this post is wordy, but my English is not that good to possess a talent for a brief and precise phrases.

I agree that people in our countries are extremely creative when it comes to the Lexx. BTW, it's more popular among us than abroad.
But here comes the diffence in cultures and mentality. There are so many moments that are provocative (even dirty, horny) and @hard to digest@ for their morals, and for us the same scenes are less hurting. What we accept they deny (and vise versa). That's why it's fascinating that there are still so many dedicated fans here. And probably that's why I do believe that the Lexx forums are supposed to be international. I find it extremely interesting to see different positions, views and conceptions. I feel like going global doesn't mean economy, but cultural dialogue first. And it's a good beginning to share Ur feelings about something that so many different nations love.
:)

Wow Nell, your story is so very rich. Such an immersion in literature at a young age is truly impressive... and maybe a little bit intimidating to those who perhaps were raised on nothing more challenging than Dr. Suess.

As I've commented in the past, Lexx immediately struck me as salacious in nature... and I didn't count that against the show at all. :P  I was also struck by the weirdness of it, but at the time, having just been exposed to the less-constrained world of cable television, I didn't fully credit the shows creators for their unique creation.

It is interesting to hear of your reaction to fan events in Germany. I hope I don't offend you by saying it, but I've heard it said that Russian culture is only in front of American culture for its repressed sexuality. I haven't been nearly enough of a world traveler or investigator of foreign cultures to claim to know personally, but my sense is that Germany, France and the Nordic countries tend to quite freethinking when it comes to sex.

In any case, I think it is neat that your own mom pulled you in* -- and for the first movie/episode too! I think many Lexxians happened across the show long after it made its debut. Did you watch the following shows in sequence?

*I'm picturing the opposite happening in many households!

Well.

1. Thank U for Dr. Suess. Now I have something to do tonight_)))

2. I believe U r a tricky person. One of those who say little meaning a lot.

3. As for stereotypes...well, let's put it this way: It goes without saying that there was no sex in the USSR, which means they were not only the first in space, but the first who developed new breeding methods. Sort of something to be proud of_)
If answer seriously, I believe that Russians are more sexually free than Americans. But less than Germans. Watching a process of ...hm...penetration into the rubber Kai is still something that I'd like to forget. At the same time, if I ever become a director of a movie, I'll do my best to include a scene like this in shooting.

4.My mother dedicated her life to me. It's something like...even if she disaproves something she let me make my own choice.

5.It started in 1998 (or so) in Russia. Then it stopped. And after a few years started again from the very beginning. And yes, I saw it in sequence. Soon after the 4th season it was available to watch on-line here, so I never had any troubles to access it.

I suppose I don't really like being called "tricky," any more than you, apparently, enjoy the suggestion that Russian culture is sexually repressed. (I don't mind the suggestion that there is sexual repression in the U.S. because I think it is true and I don't have to feel that such a generalized statement pertains to me specifically; at least in a major way.)

I didn't mean to be offensive. I should have found a more tactful way of drawing you out on what you found disturbing about the German fan event.

I think I'd be put off by a penetration scene with a rubber Kai myself. (Penetrated with *what?* I ask myself and then immediately, shudderingly, eject it from my mind...)

Still, you wrote: "There are so many moments that are provocative (even dirty, horny) and @hard to digest@ for their morals, and for us the same scenes are less hurting. What we accept they deny (and vise versa). That's why it's fascinating that there are still so many dedicated fans here" -- and that seemed to leave open a question of what societal values you might be referencing.

I think "stereotyping" is only really offensive when the technique is used to against individuals in a specific manner -- but I'm not sure I'm explaining myself adequately.

I didn't mean to offend anyone. I'll try to be brief to avoid misunderstanding. one of the best things in this world is diversity and culture is one of few things I'm interested in. people havevpersonal values, we share some national and universal values. Sometimes we don't understand each other because of different backgrounds. . .etc. I meant only one thing_ I find it extremely fascinating that the Lexx united so many different people_)))

I don't remember, was a few years ago I saw the original 4 movies, and I did like them but I had to stop after that first 4 for some reason. I think I had to get rid of cable for a while. Then I just started watching again on Netflix, a few weeks ago. So sad I did not know what a gem it was years ago. I'm not a Con kind of girl but I would have gone to one just to meet the Lexx crew if i had known about this show back then. I haven't even finished S4 yet.
