The show originated as a series of four TV movies, each one featuring a noticeable HeyItsThatGuy guest star[[labelnote:*]]''in order: [[Main/RockyHorrorPictureShow Barry]] [[Series/SpinCity Bostwick]], Creator/TimCurry, Creator/RutgerHauer, and Creator/MalcolmMcDowell''[[/labelnote]]. After the TV movies and the second season were spent wandering the two universes, as a cost-saving measure and opportunity for long-form storytelling, the Lexx spent the last two seasons largely parked in orbit. Season three revolved around the binary planetary system of Fire, a barren wasteland, and Water, a lush paradise, and introduces recurring antagonist Prince, a primal force of evil in the shape of a suave Brit. The fourth and final season puts the Lexx around PresentDay Earth, albeit an Earth as seen through the eyes of the lovechild of David Lynch and David Cronenberg while tripping on LSD. It satirically skewers modern culture, with targets including [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic militia fanatics]], pretentious actors, internet porn, RealityTelevision, and Kaiju films.
