Lexx was a unique, sci-fi show that premiered in Canada in 1996 and lasted for four seasons before ending in 2002. Set in a distant, dystopian future, the show follows a group of characters who travel through space aboard an enormous bioengineered insect spaceship called the Lexx. The show was known for its mix of humor, sex, and existential dread, and it gained a cult following among fans of bizarre, offbeat shows.

The show's main characters include the captain of the Lexx, Stanley Tweedle (Brian Downey), a bumbling, cowardly man who accidentally becomes the captain of the ship; Zev Bellringer (Eva Habermann and later played by Xenia Seeberg), a beautiful and deadly former love slave who joins the crew after being transformed into a half-human, half-lizard creature; Kai (Michael McManus), a dead assassin who is reanimated to serve as the crew's protector; and the show's primary villain, the self-righteous and manipulative bio-vizier His Divine Shadow (played by a variety of actors, including Nigel Bennett and Patricia Zentilli).

The show's sets and special effects are a unique mix of practical and CGI effects and have a distinctive, surreal aesthetic. The bioengineered ship, the Lexx, is a truly bizarre creation, with a design that resembles a giant insect or lobster, complete with writhing tentacles and a fleshy interior. The ship's interior is equally bizarre, with curved walls, strange alcoves, and bioengineered devices that are both organic and technological.

One of the show's defining characteristics is its mixture of humor, sex, and horror. The show often features graphic violence, sexual content, and gory visuals, but it balances these elements with a tongue-in-cheek approach to the genre. The show's characters often make cheeky, self-referential jokes, and there are occasional moments of breaking the fourth wall. The humor can be somewhat juvenile at times, but it keeps the show from taking itself too seriously.

Despite its irreverent tone, Lexx explores some dark and complex themes, including destiny, mortality, and the nature of power. Kai's backstory, for example, is a tragedy of epic proportions, involving a war of annihilation between two opposing civilizations. The show also explores issues of faith and theocracy, as the ruling body in the show's universe is an all-powerful theocracy that requires absolute obedience from its citizens.

Overall, Lexx is a unique and surreal sci-fi series that stands out for its weirdness and humor. The show combines horror, comedy, and existential dread in a way that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. While it may not be for everyone, fans of offbeat, unconventional sci-fi will find a lot to love in this cult classic.

Lexx is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (61 episodes). The series first aired on April 18, 1997.
