    The take on the show that is expressed there makes perfect sense to me. I haven't read the words of another Lexx fan who agrees that a major theme of the show is that the main characters are not heroes.

    Also, my impression, based on highly unscientific methods, is that if you talk as openly as they do in the show, about sex and issues surrounding human sexuality and relationships, a majority of Lexx fans are offended.

    Well, I certainly didn't get that impression from you.

    Actually, it's a little hostile to make accusations, so this was a bad direction for me to start out in. Allow me to shrivel up and withdraw my accusation here.

    I'm sure noone will be offended, I'm just trying to think of someone conservative, who wouldn't discuss such things and I fail to remember anyone that I have seen asked and not answered to a sexual question. There are many people, who I've never seen being asked, but those who I can think of right now are pretty open.
    Just starting a dicussion, that's all :) You can still end it ;)

    my 2 cents -

    Way back in the misty dawn of time, when Lexx was first aired on the Sci-Fi channel in the US&A, the accusations flew on the scifi.com boards that Lexx was nothing but softcore porn. Now, most of these accusations came from Farscape fans, and actually led to some "Board Wars" between the two shows. But I don't recall any Lexx fans feeling offended. They were more - WTF? it's just for fun guys, lighten up!

    Wow, we had the same kind of board wars in Bulgaria :) Scapers naturally are far more than lexxians, but the two of us fought well ;) I remember quotes like "Claudia Black is a very experienced actress, she even played in the horror movie Pitch Black" - "Oh, really, did she play the monster?!" or "After an imdb search it turned out that Lexx actors played in more movies" - "Well, Farscape actors played well in theatres!", or maybe the more biteful one "Xenia Seeberg looks like one of those porn actresses, that took fat from their ass and injected it in their lips to make herself prettier" - "Yes, and all the Farscape actors are so pretty, that they make them wear tons of make-up and masks to cover it up"

    Oh, the memories :)

    LOL, it's nice to know that petty bickering over TV shows is a global phenomenon. ;)

    I used to love it when the geniuses would stop by and post something like: "Lexx Suxx" and think they'd really posted something original :lol:

    I guess geniuses like those among the scapers are another global phenomenon. There were lots of them. We say "Lexx is better, because 1st... 2nd... 3rd... ...." and they say "Idiots, Farscape is much better than your crap" without any supporting arguments :)

    What surprises me is how many people love the looney tunes episode of Farscape. That one was very idiotic.

    I never liked Farscape at all. The first season was like a bad dream, then it went downhill from there. Just one of those shows I never could get into (or care about).
