LEXX Unauthorized, Series 3 - It's Hot and It's Cold. The continuing story of Kai, an undead assassin, Zev, a combination of love slave and cluster lizard, Stanley Tweedle, a hapless security guard and 790, a robot head, careening through space together in the LEXX, a stolen, planet destroying, biological warship shaped like a dragonfly.

The third series sees funding crisis driving a radical reinvention of the show from a weekly episode format into a thirteen part serial, shot in three countries.. Onscreen, following the destruction of the Light Universe, the LEXX and it's crew fall into a stationary orbit between two warring planets, Fire and Water, which are really Heaven and Hell. Special Bonus - A behind the scenes look at the principal Creators and Stars of the show.

LEXX was one of the strangest and most wildly surreal space operas ever conceived, owing as much to Luis Bunuel and Alejandro Jodorowsky as to to Star Trek and Star Wars. It was unique and unforgettable, mixing black comedy and absurdism with epic drama, and an astonishing visual sense. Backstage, the story of the creation of the series was even more extraordinary, a tale of regional Atlantic film makers, renegade artists, cult film makers, wild experimentation, Canadian cultural nationalism, German entrepreneurs, new computer generated imagery technologies and backstage chaos intersecting in wildly unpredictable ways, to create truly exotic images and stories. The product of years of research and dozens of interviews, this is a 'must buy' for any fan of the show itself or of science fiction movies television generally, and an eye opening insight into film and television production, especially Canadian and international productions.
