Lexx 3.13 – “Heaven and Hell” April 30, 2000
Xev retrieves Kai, who then dives to the center of planet Fire to rescue Stan. He has a little chat with Prince, who shows him Stanley in the red vortex evil soul repository, where they patiently await rotational incarnate torture with Prince for the rest of eternity. Xev liberates Kai by destroying Fire, then spiritual-Prince gains control of Lexx to destroy Water. The area is filled with good and evil souls, who fly off to Earth on the other side of the sun. Stan’s frozen body revives, and he remembers nothing about his judgement.

A better episode due to the requirement to wrap up all the plot threads and bring the third series to a close. (4/5)

Lexx 4.01 “Little Blue Planet” July 13, 2001
Begins with Marconi in Newfoundland 1901 and his trans-Atlantic communication attempt. This strong radio emission attracts the attention of another alien ship way outside the Milky Way. Arriving at Earth, Stanley H. Tweedle starts negotiating with the president, who is using cue cards to cope with alien first contact. They are not adequate to cope with Stan’s idiotic presumptions and sexual desires. Isambard Prince, head of the ATF, initiates a plan to attack the Lexx using Russian psycho killers aboard a space shuttle. Prince’s old crony from planet Fire, Priest, is elected president, and Lexx eats a large chunk of the Amazon Rainforest.

There is no explanation of how the Lexx and Prince arrived at earth.

Plotonium ?
It’s an interesting episode due to the contemporary setup and use of space shuttle video.  (4/5)
