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

 :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!

@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?
