Lexx 2.10 – Wake the Dead
A group of restless and none-too-intelligent teens comes aboard the Lexx, and after ‘partying like stink’ one of them accidentally reprograms Kai to become a psychotic killing machine. Kai then sets to work systematically murdering each of the teens, taking an uncharacteristic delight in violence. After hunting and killing his prey one by one Xev and Stan fear they may have to abandon the Lexx forever only to be saved at the last moment when Kai runs out of Protoblood.
A very boring parody of teen slasher films. (1/10)
Lexx 2.11 – Nook
Stanley Tweedle isn’t interested in exploring, but Xev convinces him to do so, saying that she’ll have sex with him if she doesn’t find somebody to have sex with on the planet first. Stan agrees, and when they venture to the planet they find an order of monks who profess to have no idea what a woman is. It is a repressive and stagnant place, where the monks copy writings out of ancient books without knowing how to read, so that they will not be corrupted by dangerous ideas. Kai asks their leader, Brother Randor, how they procreate without women, but Brother Randor claims ignorance of such matters. Meanwhile, Xev is stirring up trouble by making sexual overtures to various monks.
Some interesting ideas, but undermined by illogical plot and characters. (2/5)
