Hi everyone. I'm a new devotee, thanks to Hulu and my recently purchased DVDs. I have three questions (currently), but I guess I'll post them one at a time. I would like to know where the stone and brick interiors were shot in season three. Is there any history I could peruse about them? All those arches, and the bricks looked handmade. I imagine the building or buildings are/were very old. Such a unique look for a television series. Brilliant choice.

Thanks

Welcome aboard ritnlif. Season 3 non-desert scenes were filmed in a place called Rudesdorf in Germany, it was filmed in an old abandoned cement factory.

Does anybody know any more about it? I was hoping it still existed. The brickwork was beautiful, it looked ancient. I thought maybe there would be photographs. The only abandoned cementworks I found online at Rudersdorf was Chemiewerk Rudersdorf but it doesn't look like the place. I did find a cool facebook page called Abandoned Universe, though.

Well, I searched Namibia and didn't find anything there, either. Does no one know where the beautiful archwork was filmed?

The entire interior scenes were filmed inside that cement factory. The name was not given as far as I know, but the archways and all the other brickwork were in several levels of the inside of the factory.  Namibia is in Africa and was used only for the Beach scenes and desert scenes.

Thank you too, Angel. Wish I could find more info on that factory's innards. Oh well. It was worth a try.

So, I had two more questions and I'm just going to throw them up here and see what happens. I know Lexx is so over and people have moved on, so it's probably impossible to get answers from people involved in production, but with streaming now, they should realize there's going to be new interest. Or not. Anyway, here they are:

Second question: I would like to know if the Kai character did actually feel emotions? I know, it’s a human playing a corpse, but was it Kai’s tactical decision to continually state he couldn’t feel, or was that “real” for the character. I know, I’m probably over-thinking this. The reason I ask is because in “I Worship His Shadow”, Kai says he has willpower when the brain he’s about to squash says he doesn’t, yet in “The Game”, I believe it was, Prince asks Kai whether he has willpower of his own and Kai says, “No.” I assume that was tactical; you don’t want to tell your enemy anything about yourself, although I guess it could have been a mistake of the writers, or some decision to advance the story. Also, he seems pretty emotional at times, for instance, when Tina is killed. So it got me to thinking about Kai’s lack of emotions. Was that a tactical thing, too? Kai wouldn’t want people playing on his emotions, right? If you got back all your memories and those of thousands of other people, couldn’t you then remember how to feel? I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on this or can find out from the writers?

Lastly, though related, the Kai character seemed to get darker and more depressed as the series goes on. Was this intentional? In Mort, he was a most unhappy corpse. I wondered if this was a product of his realization that he was not able to fully function in human society. The admission to Zev in “Yo Way Yo” was quite heartfelt and heart wrenching – one of his scenes that cause me to question him not being able to feel emotions. It also tied up with the bet he made with Prince about getting his conscience back so he could die properly and return to the Dream Zone. If he didn’t have feelings, he wouldn’t care, although in “Heaven and Hell” he did tell Prince he “thought” about the differences between himself and the living. Alternatively, was Kai’s depression a product of the series going on for six years and Michael McManus’ own experiences, changes in approach, and maturity? Maybe that’s a personal question he wouldn’t want to answer, so, was there a conscious decision by McManus or the writers to play the character as becoming more dark and depressed? Was this the intention of the writers or did this just develop as the story wound up? I mean, how do you write and play a corpse animated with some mysterious substance, right? I’m fascinated.

There seems to be a big McManus following here so maybe I can generate some discussion with these questions? Or not.

This is really disappointing. I think I'll go play somewhere else.

I'm sorry that your questions didn't generate the interest you wanted. Perhaps it was because the questions were just a little over-complicating the conclusions.

Kai had 'limited' emotions. In both interviews with the writers and McManus, it is stated that his 'emotional' responses are strictly reactionary. He has a sort of 'reptilian' response to emotional situations, simply because that part of his humanity has been cauterized out of his psyche. Don't read too much into each little nuance of every performance given by McManus or how the writers portrayed his character. Lexx was notorious for inconsistencies and some flawed character development.

Kai actually showed comparatively tremendous emotionalism in Season 1, but the premise that he was an Undead type of Cyborg became the path the writers wanted to take, sort of like a Spock or Data character, for the remaining seasons.
