In the center of the darkest area of the Dark Zone, the universe of evil, chaos and depravity, there's a planet anyone and everyone of us is very familiar with: the earth. According to 790, the trustworthy robothead, the earth is a classic type 13 planet in its final stage of development that typically ends in self-destruction. Sometimes through wars, often through environmental catastrophe. But more commonly a type 13 planet is unintentionally collapsed into a pea sized object by scientists trying to determine the mass of the Higgs boson particle. The perfect timing for the Lexx to show up...

The Season
In comparison to the previous seasons, the fourth and final season is entirely different. It takes place on earth in the former present. Well, a few months in the future (as of original airing) to be precise. Mostly, it's satire - sometimes critical of society - with the affinity to slapstick. While S1 - S3 was a Canadian German co-production, S4 is a Canadian British co-production which explains the lack of German actors in minor roles and the presence of British actors instead.
Similar to S3, each episode builds upon the previous episode. Except that, compared with S3, the overall plot is pretty thin here. A noteworthy image seen in this season is the crew watching TV, which implies that S4 shouldn't be taken seriously at all.


The Episode
After Xev has been found guilty for triple homicide in episode two, she is being put in a prison for women, which is being led by two familiar faces from Red Dwarf, a famous UK SciFi comedy series. The all women prison, which is called P4X, is making money off its inmates. They have to wear different underwear every day, which is then sold together with a letter they have to write. The daughter of the prison managers is also making money of the inmates, as she is running a BDSM porn site.
Using the help of the nerds loving this site, Kai and 790 find out where the prison is and get on their way to save Xev. Of course, they are successful, after all it is just the third episode.
The alien invaders are appearing for the first time in this episode. Compared to Mantrid's drone arms they seem more harmless and also better for your eyes.
