Lexx 4.02 “Texx Lexx” July 20, 2001
Prince heads towards Lexx in a shuttle. Kai and Xev head to Earth in a moth, which is attacked by stealth fighters. The battle is monitored by a SETI team headed by Dr Longbore (a reincarnation of the Wozzard, from season 2), who embraces Kai, and details him on the Earth’s imminent demise due to Higgs Boson research. Stan has to deal with Prince on the Lexx, and the machinations of 790. Xev encounters a romantic Texan boy who wants to marry her before he can have sex, but all his friends want a crack, too, so he has to kill them all. Xev gets arrested and handcuffed for murder.
It’s interesting to have a bit of real science on the show, the search for the Higg Boson. But the notion that it would destroy the earth we all know didn’t happen. Xev’s story continues with the use of stupid american stereotypes. Stan behaves just as stupidly as always. Only Kai has a remotely interesting story with the scientists. (3/5)
Lexx 4.03 “P4X” July 27, 2001
Xev is admitted to a local Texan jail, where they do things mighty strange. The wardens’ goth daughter Lomea (in a wonderful reprise of her role from the 2nd Season episode ‘Twilight’) abducts attractive people from around the jail, and puts them on her P4X pirate internet show. Xev becomes a star with her loveless love slave story, and later in a sex show with other abductees. Meanwhile, Stanley is pinned high on a wall in the ATF, alongside psychopathic schoolboy, Digby, divulging all the secrets of the key to the Lexx. Prince tries to get the key, but doesn’t realize that Digby has his own plans, and his own weapons.
The best thing about the episode is Craig Charles (Lister from Red Dwarf) as the warden. The kid is suitable mean, but the ‘sex machine’ Xev gets caught in is just silly. (2/5).
