Series 3 news!
I have heard quite a few interesting tidbits about the 3rd series of Lexx, especially since the Halifax Unconvention. I could gather them all together here, but for one thing, I can't be bothered and for another, it's already been done better than I could anyway in the Series 3 News section of Emerald's Lexx Directory
Series 2 videos
The first two videos of series 2 (episodes 2.1-2.4) are due to be released in the UK on October 4th. They can be ordered online here, from Benson's World of Home Entertainment.

||Lexx videos hit UK instore charts!
I walked into Cardiff HMV to see if the Lexx videos were finally on sale somewhere in Cardiff... and found Videos 1.3 & 1.4 (Eating Pattern and Gigashadow) at position 7 in the HMV chart! MVC were out of stock (which is a pity as you can get money off with an MVC card), and Virgin had all 4 Lexx movies at position 3! Don't forget that you can view the inlays here.
Online Lexx merchandise store now open
You can now buy Lexx merchandise over the web from the new online store at Salter Street's web site. This link takes you direct to the Lexx section.
Pics and reports from the Halifax Unconvention
There are several pages up containing reports and photos from the Lexx Unconvention in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Rather than list them all here, you can visit the Uncon pages at Sadgeezer's Guide which is kept up to date.
The UK SciFi Channel will be showing the
Lexx movies again, but this time full length rather than split into two
episodes. They will then (most probably) play series 2 again in preparation
for showing series 3. This will probably air in the UK early next year.
The transmission dates are:
|Thu, August 5 22.00
|| LEXX: I WORSHIP HIS SHADOW
|Thu, August 12 22.00
|| LEXX: SUPER NOVA
|Thu, August 19 22.00
|| LEXX: EATING PATTERN
|Thu, August 26 22.00
|| LEXX: THE GIGA SHADOW
may be the last update for a while as I will be away for most of the next
month. I will however be posting my photos from the London signing as soon
as I can when I have them.)
three news from Salter
|13 one hours of the sci-fi cult series Lexx
for CHUM Television ,which moves into Electropolis Studios July 19th until
December 31st. Filming will also take place in Germany and on location
in Namibia. The third season of Lexx marks a change in the story
telling style. Stan, Xev and Kai spend the entire thirteen episodes
on two planets "Fire" and "Water" that share the same atmosphere and have
been at war with each other forever. What seems like a small local
struggle is of course much more and our heroes naturally cause far more
problems than they solve, both for themselves, the two planets and the
only surviving universe, the Dark Zone. Pre-sales partners are Channel
5 (U.K.) Sci-Fi Channel Europe and Canal Plus (France).
You can read the full original report here.
I now have the video sleeve graphics for Lexx 3.0 & 4.0 on my inlays
page. These originals were lower quality than the last set, but at least
they are smaller! They also show the actual complete sleeve, rather than
just the front cover graphics. The reason that there are two files for
each video is that these covers are from the double-sided special edition
videos - if you look closely you can see the place holder for the number.
(Also notice that Contender have renumbered the movies from 1.0, 2.0...
to 1.1, 1.2... which actually makes more sense given that the second series
is numbered 2.1, 2.2...)
this is late... you've probably read it all elsewhere already, but I've
been busy and the computer was down for a week...)
I have received images of the inlay sleeves
for the first two Lexx movie videos. The files are high quality & high
resolution so are therefore rather large (~250KB). They can be downloaded
by right clicking on the links and selecting 'save target as' or
link as' depending on whether you are using Internet Explorer or Netscape
Navigator. I am having trouble getting these to work, so if you have trouble,
let me know. I have now tried adding mirrors of these files at another
site to see if this helps.
It is also possible to view thumbnail pictures
and lower quality copies of these images online by clicking here.

news for UK Lexxians!
The big news at the moment is that Brian
Downey (Stan), Michael McManus (Kai) and Xenia Seeburg
(Xev) will be coming to a PA/Signing event in the New Oxford
Street Forbidden Planet in London, UK. The date has now been confirmed
as June 23rd, at 12:45pm. The videos for the first two Lexx movies
(1.1: I Worship His Shadow & 1.2: Supernova, uncut!) will be
available here, which otherwise won't be available till July 5th. Prices
will be £12.99 each (previously £14.99) or £20 for both
together. The first 5000 are limited edition and include a merchandise
offer, and posters may
be available to be signed. The last two films
are due to be released in August, and there's a possibility of seeing
the first two episodes of the series in October.
Most of this information came from a bulk
email sent out from Contender video (the nice people who are releasing
the videos in the UK) to UK bored members, and the text of this is available
for reading here. If possible, I will
be publishing copies of the video inlay sleeves here, so check back.
