Lexx 2.14 – Patches in the Sky
Stan is having bad dreams and Xev tells him to do something “mighty” to feel better. Stan accidentally blows up a robot-manned manganese mining planet, after the robot administrator tells him of the Narco-Lounger, that allows people to enter and control their dreams. Fruitcake, a past customer of the Narco-Lounger tells the owner of Narco-World, Gubby, about Patches in the Sky, created by Mantrid’s Drones ongoing destruction of the whole universe. The terrible reality of this turns Gubby to drugs. Stan and crew arrive and Stan uses the machine to enter his dreams. Stans dreams turn into nightmares as he dreams of being chased first by the dead robot administrator and then by Giggerota. Xev must enter to save him, while Kai struggles to save them both.
At last a good attempt at an original script, despite being full of TV tropes from the 1960’s (3/5)
Lexx 2.15 – Woz
When 790 reluctantly reveals that Xev has a built-in expiry date that’s only 79 hours away, the Lexx heads to the planet Woz where the only remaining Lusticon, the love-slave transformation device, is. Before they can use it to reset Xev’s expiry date, however, Stan and Kai are sucked into a war being waged between the Wozzard and The Dark Lady, each having very different opinions about the morality of the Lusticon.
This episode is a bad parody of the movie “Wizard of Oz” (2/5)
