    Lexx [Season 2, Episode 1] Mantrid
    Reviewed: 12th December 2000

    This is an ensemble piece set on a futuristic starship [called Lexx, like Farscape but with originality instead of muppets. Of course, it's nowhere near as good as the other show [fewer characters with less depth, I suppose]. The ship's talking AI is reminiscent of Blake's 7 , however.

    This episode starts with a brief synopsis of Season One. There was a war between humans and a species called the Insects, which the humans won with the help of the Lexx. One of the crew, a dead assassin named Kai, persuades the others to retrieve a dormant insect and then seek out the title character - a disembodied genius.

    As it turns out the insects are not as defeated as the humans believed, and we see the set-up for a new major villain this Season.
