You know, that other show some people claimed Lexx copied? Lexx was created and broadcast first, and in the scope of more than, less than or different than, Lexx is more than its competitors in terms of mature story line. While I won't claim it to be in any way realistic, it is less contrived than it's more “Hollywood” copies.
Some of the effects may appear dated, and I thought that they looked as though they had a low budget even at the time they were produced. It doesn't matter. The dialogue and ideas presented continue to have me shaking my head in amazement and laughter.
The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because there is more where this came from!
