Bunny

Originally published on 7-5-14.


Spoiler alert- I know some people are still just now discovering Lexx (as evidenced on twitter), so be warned that I don't hesitate to blurt.

Graphics used in this post are modified screen grabs from The Pic Bug and angelbacchae.com, where you can browse through thousands of Lexx captures from all four seasons. All captures I use in this post click back to sources.

Bunny is a conundrum for me. She starts out on the planet Water but winds up being one of Prince's henchmen. How?? How does cute, sweet Bunny wind up playing a star role for the most evil being in two universes?



Bunny actually first started out as Laleen in season two's Wake The Dead, and then we see a Brunnen-G stage actor that looks like her in Brigadoom near the end of season two.





These two characters (Laleen and the Brunnen-G) played by Patricia Zentilli are unrelated in the overall story, just as Michael McManus playing a different character in season two's White Trash had nothing to do with Kai.





Bunny in seasons three and four, however, might be a reincarnation of Laleen from season two, just as Fifi from seasons three and four is a reincarnation of Schlemmi from season two's Luvliner, as recognized by Xev on Xevivor.





Is this important? Who knows? They don't stop and spell stuff out in Lexx, you just keep running to keep up. I think it's handy, but we don't need Laleen to figure Bunny out, although I probably will take a look at her.

We might assume when we meet Bunny on the planet Water that she is a 'good guy' because she is on Water (heaven), but so is Fifi, which throws obvious assumptions right out the window as season three progresses and we see how truly awful he is. We also get hints later that Prince might have been able to smuggle a few of his people onto Water for purposes of the war, but we're never quite sure that they remember who they are and why they're really there. The afterlife is funny that way- die (again) here, wake up somewhere else and no idea where or who you are. So, ~Bunny~...



Most of what we (and basically everyone around her) base Bunny being 'good' on is her inability to enjoy people being killed, or seeming incapable of contributing to killing others, to the point of sacrificing herself to save others, as she did in Gondola. I think this is very misleading. Just because she is squeamish and wishy-washy doesn't make her a good person, although she is able to appear the innocent victim everywhere she goes. Think about how she transforms from being almost bossy and cranky with Kai on Water (I'm not sure people who are really supposed to be on Water could become fixated on one person like that) to a cringing fearful mouse in the gondola over Fire. Her personality flipped. At first I assumed it was because she was a fish out of water (ha, pun) and terrified of being on Fire, but some people are just really good at manipulating.

This is important. Once you realize that Fifi knew who he was the entire time, and then think back on the unbearable pressure Bunny felt to jump to save everyone, you go Oh, yeah, Fifi figured out who Cupid Kai was on the gondola, so **apparently** (after you've watched seasons three and four a few times it seems more apparent, because the Bunny role was ingeniously subtle) Bunny knew her role as well in the head game that was being played. Just as May was not afraid to die for Prince, neither was Bunny. She acted exactly how she was supposed to act so Stan and Xev could be split further apart taking sides on what was morally right and wrong. For a long time I thought maybe Fifi pushed her out of the gondola, but I don't think he had to. I think she did what she was told, if not with a direct command, at least an indirect pressure. All of the players who obediently died for Prince knew they'd be coming back somewhere later. That was Prince's way of repositioning game pieces, which lends more heft to his arrogance in The Game in season four.

By season four Bunny has graduated to First Lady status, partnered with Prince's very own right hand man. Even if you are paying attention, that just seems like an incredible leap. I watched season four all the way through twice before I finally figured Bunny out. It's really difficult to pin her down to condemnation when she so innocently does things like bravely rally the troops in ApocaLexx Now.



And she obviously doesn't want people to die when Prince orders her to blow Earth up in Dutch Treat.



But that kind of look at Bunny is about as superficial as Bunny herself seems to be. She actually seems to have no problem whatsoever supporting pure evil as long as it lines up with her own selfish obsessions. She had no regard at all for all the moth breeders being killed while she and President Priest tried to steal the key to the Lexx, and even shot some herself in 769.



:edit: 12-2-14 Since I never got back to this post, I'll probably do a Bunny 2 post in the future. ~~~

You can follow Patricia Zentilli on twitter and facebook.

Echo Bridge Entertainment has licensed distribution over Lexx. Online screening is available through a logged in account.

Lexx is also available for purchase through itunes, amazon, Inet Video, Google shopping search, Target, Yidio, tv.com, Play.com, Best Buy, and probably much more, now that it's widely available again at lower prices than it used to be.

Get Lexxperienced.

How many more one-page Lexx reviews do we need?

By the haphazard fortunes of random twitter and weird timing, I ran into a tweet today that linked to a Lexx review that was done last year about this time by a writer for 925rebellion.com. Their page makes no apologies for lengthy lapses in updating (lol, makes me look good), and urges readers to contact them on their facebook if we feel the need to get hold of them for anything. Well, yeah, besides being the first person on the planet to give that review a rating (5 stars, I know, I'm a sop), I'd like to leave a "Brava!" or something, right? (You know me, I wouldn't have been able to stop there.) So here you go, an actual fairly new Lexx review that had me laughing over a few skewed factoids (did the writer even SEE the show?). Click the pic to go read it.

Why am I linking this? Because I think it's adorable that someone out there is still rifling through old material to create 'new content' with the same kind of slurred attention to detail that squeaked some of us past #epicfail on our college essay exams before we dropped out. See, that's kinda Lexxy. But not terribly Lexxperienced. But maybe that review helped make a few Lexx sales, and for that we thank you, as Tosh says on his show.

And it would have been nice to *cough* get more updated fan site links *cough* since my newer content is starting to come up on the front page in google search now, as evidenced here. Took 2 1/2 years to break through what looked like the cover stone to a mausoleum, which I'm not saying disrespectfully. Lexx fans know the old shrines well.


A person might ask at this point, "How many more one-page Lexx reviews do we need?" The thing is, everybody out there making a new dotcom to monetize (it's all the rage, people keep asking me when I'm going to monetize and I stubbornly keep saying NEVER) anyway, they need to fill up their sites with clickable content, right? Monetizing doesn't work if you can't attract and drive traffic. And if you're drawing a scifi/gaming/comics crowd, you can't just copy other people's reviews, you have to rewrite your own. I respect that, it's good to create one's own content. Any site worth its dime will build a nice library covering all the stuff, but the thing is that someday all the servers on the planet are going to be crammed full of reviews that use slightly different words describing the same thing everyone else is describing. I'll be honest, I would love to see way more new Lexx reviews with personal viewpoints being done by people who take the show more seriously than drinking through it. (At this point a few of you are yelling for me to get off my butt and finish the Bunny post, sorry, I'm feeling the guilt every day, I swear.)

It's tempting to turn stuff like this into a 'find the mistake' game and then hand out prizes to whoever catches the most mistakes in Lexx reviews. Maybe one of these days...

Our own Giggerota is back in the stars

We know her as Giggerota, Queen, and Pope Genevieve from Lexx, and true Ellen Dubin fans have followed her across a range of characters in movies, TV shows, and games since then. Some of us have even found her on twitter. If you don't have a twitter yet, shame on you. Twitter is a wonderful way to not only keep up in real time (you can get tweets from Ellen sent to your phone like texts as soon as she hits send), but an excellent easy history to scroll through so you can see at a glance what she's been up to all year. You can click this snip to check it out yourself.


I've lately been excited about the updates she's been tweeting about Nobility and Starfall. Tweet snips click to original sources.



This from a blurb I made in in the syfydesigns.com forum on 10-17-14.

Sitting tight waiting for Nobility to premier, have been watching the press releases all summer. From their facebook- ""Nobility" is a new sci-fi dramedy dubbed "The Office" meets "Firefly". Set 700 years in the future, it's about the C.A.S. Nobility, humanity's most powerful starship with a crew that's, well, anything but noble." My favorite Lexx cannibal Giggerota (Ellen Dubin) plays Col. Theia, check out the rest of the awesome Nobility cast.

What I didn't mention was being surprised and elated that Teal'c is also part of that cast, so you guys need to go poke around their site and see what else you find. Click this pic to go do that right now.



So after all that waiting, I was very surprised when Ellen suddenly started tweeting again about another scifi series in space.


Starfall, according to their kickstarter page, "is in its final days of production with a cast and crew of dedicated and talented professionals working to return science fiction television to the stars where it began with works like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Doctor Who. By assisting with the post-production through this kickstarter, Starfall will be able to show its finished work quicker and thus capitalize on our early successes to secure the series on a long term basis."

Sound familiar? Lexx went through a similar pre-production pilot that sold the series before it was later filmed as the Lexx series we know and love. If you would like to be part of the kickstarter, check out the sweet reward tier that comes with donations. It would be cool to hang out with Ellen at the premier, wouldn't it? Click this to see more.


I am in no way affiliated with Ellen Dubin's agency or press releases, but we do tweet once in awhile, and I'm very excited that we've got some new space shows coming with her in them. I know we're all busy and holidays coming up, so I've put this here in one spot for easy reference. If you want more, please follow Ellen on twitter, like her facebook, and check back on those new series sites for updates.

Those American Girls Love Lexx

Just playing around on twitter, got a fun #FF from  @ThoseUSAGirls at ThoseAmericanGirls.com, which led to some back and forth and next thing you know, we find out @DebbieAmerican is a huge Lexx fan. Clips click back to original source.



No exchange for link swapping, just having fun upping the ante, lol. I like to win, heh heh. Maybe one day we can talk about Lexx together.

Brigadoom background footage

Was looking for something else and ran into this, thought I had given all my Lexx stuff away. Got it from Brian Downey at Megacon in 2007.


Believe it or not, I've never watched it. I don't have the time today, either, but I did pop it in for a couple minutes and got this.


I'm sure other fans out there have a copy of this, too, so you may already know what's on it.

Brian has a forum where you can interact and keep up with his projects. I don't know if he still sells behind the scenes footage at conventions.

are you Lexxperienced?

Messed up aspie over here accidentally conned @bonenado into giving me an early birthday present last night, BOOYA. Ran into a check in my purse this morning that I forgot to deposit the other day and totally forgot I have money. Oopsie.
 photo 4bigsmile.gif

So twenty bucks a year lets me point lexxperience.com at my Lexx blog on blogger, yay! I don't remember if a Lexx fan used to own that or if it was something else, but evidently let it go, so I nabbed it. "Lexxperience" was a term coined by Syfy during their Friday Prime promos for Lexx.

790 spotted at a comiccon

This pic clicks to original source.






You can see some of the original pictures of the reconstruction that Marc did after he won the ebay bid on the 790 stunt double and cart on Helen's page. It's in Russian so use a translator. Much of it is her summarization but you can still pick up the work Marc put into it. I used to have copies of his videos where he used remote control to make it zoom around the sidewalk and street, apologies, my copies are gone now. He also rigged it with a recorder/player so it would sound like 790 was really talking. He shows up at comiccons around his area with it, so if you see it, yes, it's REAL!

Many thanx to @ThaddeusNowak on twitter for sharing his picture of Marc and 790, and please to check out his author page at http://thaddeusnowak.com/

Waiting for the Lexx Spin-off



What can Lexx fans do to help? Besides becoming more aware of the process,


and learning what goes into making a cool show like Lexx (click pic for the videos), 


and cosplaying Lexx characters at comiccons (click pix to see the albums on facebook), 



I think the most obvious thing fans can do to really help is have fun being Lexx fans on the internet! I recently wrote this in my facebook group, Lexxperience.

I think best chance of fans SPEAKING OUT is literally being an open fan on the internet. Blog about Lexx, tweet about Lexx, post pictures of Lexx to public sites, FLOOD THE SEARCH ENGINES. I run into fans constantly who have no idea there are other Lexx fans still around because all the old abandoned stuff keeps coming up at the top of search engine results. We need to change that.

ok, let’s drag Lexx back out of the closet

Originally posted 8-17-12.

I was surprised this morning to accidentally run into this little article, mostly because I wasn’t doing a search on anything Lexxy at all, but was even MORE surprised that NO ONE had commented and there were only 2 facebook likes.  I went ahead and pinned it, commented, and liked, but dang, Lexx fans, where are you?  We used to be so hard core, we used to fight tooth and nail to get this stuff out the fastest, and this is already 3 months old and it looks like not a soul cares.  While I have constant surveillance on this blog from diehard fans and webmasters all over the world, this guy got nothing, so what say we help him out, make it WORTH HIS WHILE to actually write about your fave cult scifi show ever, show some actual internet support (yeah, I know, this coming from the person who tore down one of the biggest fansites on the North American continent), and give crap back to the critics *outside* of your message board comfort zones.  Click to go, like the old days.  And if you need to comment here, I promise I won’t delete, say whatever you want, I’m just staying out of it.


The cult sci-fi series LEXX comes home – Dallas TV | Examiner.com  

The discussions are still alive in slo-mo, if you a determined enough lurker.  Waiting For the LEXX Spin-off

For those without a clue- Lexx – The Full Wiki

 :edit: 8/20/12  Someone just asked me about the Lexx video game, is there one, etc.  I remember I used to have a link to this one.
Lexx Video Game

:edit: 8/25/12  I honestly never expected this much traffic on a single post in only a week’s time (817 views).  I can only imagine what would happen if I were to rebuild my old Lexx stuff.  Since sitemeter isn’t catching this particular page-specific landing point, I’m the only one that can see my internal xanga tracker, so I just wanna give a shout out to Russia, Germany, Bulgaria, UK, Thailand, Malaysia, Ukraine, Indonesia, Philipines, Netherlands, Sweden, Egypt, Belarus, New Zealand, and what the heck, a couple of you in the U.S., and that’s just in the last 24 hours.  In the last 48 we can add France, Austria, Columbia, and Brazil.  Earlier this week I saw Kuwait, Singapore, Lithuania, Hungary, Greece, Ontario, Puerto Rico, Vietnam, Switzerland, Italy, Bandladesh, Venezuala, Argentina, and Finland, all coming specifically to this Lexx titled post.  If there is any doubt in anyone’s mind that Lexx is dead, you couldn’t prove it by this response.  The U.S. NEVER airs it, but we still have our avid fans here, too.  So big wave to all of you, thanx for stopping by, might get screen snips of all those hits for posterity.  Love those fans!!!!

p.s. I’m wildly curious how some of you are getting into ‘Events’, since xanga dismantled that years ago and the only way I can get into it myself is through following your footprints, and once I’m there I can’t edit or change a thing there.  I don’t think it’s supposed to show up at all.

I’m way out of the loop now, but I guess it’s still alive at Hal-Con 2012, and thanx to sites like http://hellexx.narod.ru/transcript_interview_with_MM.html and http://www.lexxdomain.com/links.php, I’ll keep seeing some of you drop by.  Keep Lexxing.

:edit: 9-6-12 > *wow* this stirred memories, dug out my Lexx cds yesterday, and it looks now like I’ll be doing a marathon of all 4 seasons as time permits over the coming year.  If you wanna follow along and/or put in your own two cents, click this little button to go to my Lexx navigation page.



  • Hmmm… I liked Lexx okay, especially the first season, but I loves me some Farscape! Both are a heck of a lot better than anything current! Did you care much for Babylon 5? That’s my fave, with Star Trek TNG and Voyager running in a tie for second 

Oh oh, you have one of those rec buttons that doesn’t work! Come to my site and copy the rec link I put on some of my blogs. You can paste it in your entries and you can save it in your favorites and use it to rec any entry with a broken rec button. Make sure you tell people not to use it from the main page though, they have to click through to the entry so the page will know which entry they’re recommending.

Anyways, just wanted to get a rec on here to help you on yer mission. Go Lexx!


  • @AOK4WAY - My first love was Sliders, and for that we got our first satellite dish.  I’ve seen every Bab5, every Trek and Farscape, every Stargate, but Lexx was the first scifi purchase I ever made, and I got the full 4 seasons all at once.  It was also the first scifi show I ever started collections on, the first real fansite I ever made (before that I was a moderator), first show I ever wrote fan mail to, the only reason I’ve ever gone to a convention.  Also up to date on Dr. Who, religously into Nerdist.  I had a crush on Billy Mumy when the original Lost in Space was on years ago.  But yeah, Lexx…
  • @GrandFortuna - Always a pleasure to meet a fellow sci-fi lover! 

    Haha, Bill Mumy! I loved Lost In Space when I was a kid too, but I was more of a Robot fan! WARNING! DANGER! DO NOT DO IT WILL ROBINSON! The episode where Dr. Smith turned into a giant carrot was my fave lol.

  • If you want to make a change of your tedious life, if you can’t stand heavy sports shoes and if you hate to take exercise because of the uncomfortable shoes, I think you really need a pair of Asics Corrido Sneakers. Asics Onitsuka Tiger Shoes are famous for their high quality and comfort, Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81 can solve all the problem for you.


Wow, haven’t even heard of this, and I love some SciFi television!
http://endrath.xanga.com/762445539/my-18-favorite-science-fiction-shows/




@GrandFortuna - I haven’t seen anything with Colin Morgan in it. I wouldn’t know if he’d be any good. Eddie? Witty enough. Not “Alpha Wolf” enough.


  • @Endrath - Watch Lexx online free on Tv-links, I’m afraid you won’t find it on U.S. television unless someone wonderful comes along and pulls it off a shelf.  From your list of 18 faves, I’d have to add to mine Primeval for sure, loved Andromeda, made it through Eureka somehow (helps that Wil Wheaton joined the cast).  I think Friday Prime on Scifi before it became Syfy was the golden age for scifi.

    @suicide_king23 - Colin Morgan – IMDb  I have a feeling this guy is going to explode onto the world and become one of the classics over the decades.
  • Where you been hiding yourself,..kiddoo?  I looked and looked for you and for the chickens!!  Wgoooopeeeee!!  You are back!!@
  • @Stanelle - I fell down and went boom.    I’m back, but now it’s the real me.  I’m not above making another post once in awhile though just to yap Lexx on.

Ok, this is 9-9-14 again. The reason I pulled THIS post over (seriously considered not bothering) is because of this discussion in the group on facebook.

For those of you still just discovering my Lexx blogs- I've been blogging Lexx since 2005. Most of it disappeared when I got real sick. I'm back. I'm not here to follow actors around or hang out yapping about how I love Michael McManus or whatevs, I'm here to promote LEXX. Every little bit fans get excited and stir around a little bit talking about what if there were a spinoff, yap yap, but it's done in private groups and forums and the world doesn't see this going on. Lexx became so scarce for awhile that you couldn't find it anywhere. Over the last couple years it's out on Target shelves (something brand new in Lexx distribution history) and streamed for awhile on Netflix and Hulu, might still be able to stream it on Amazon. Was this a last gasp squeezing a few more nickels and dimes out of the fans? Or does it signify portent? Lexx was practically 'dead' in the U.S., now a U.S. company controls worldwide distribution. What does this mean??? Is it coming back? Might there be more?

The fans are stirring around the world. They are waking up to Lexx being 'back'. It's slow going because Lexx has no representation in the social medias besides FANS. No one else out there is promoting Lexx as merchandise. If it weren't for Lexx showing up in U.S. streaming for a year, fans wouldn't have noticed at all that Lexx is being merched again. I searched the webs for fans talking about it- no one was.

Well, I see fans starting to talk about it now. They're really hard to find because they're mostly in closed groups and private forums, but that doesn't mean there isn't interest. THERE IS INTEREST IN A LEXX SPINOFF, THERE IS INTEREST IN A LEXX REMAKE, THERE IS INTEREST IN LEXX MERCHANDISE.

Can anybody hear us?
