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
Kai, Stan and Xev get to know the modern everyday life. After they've arrived in a typical American suburb called Prime Ridge, they buy a house. They have the money for that thanks to 790, who hacked all the cash machines with the all-purpose code "790". But what to do with all the time? Watching TV is an option.
After a few hours Xev is tired of this - or rather tired of doing nothing. She says that they are doing less than on board of the LEXX, so she thinks of searching for a job. And what could be a better place to work at for a woman with an increased libido than a meat factory? She's supposed to work there as a psychologist and is, of course, immediately hired. The boss tells her that her office is under video surveillance and that any kind of sexual contact with her colleagues is prohibited. But she owns a house, so this isn't a problem at all...

The Cuts
Unfortunately, the episode was only available without opening and end credits, so there's no exact time designation for the cut version.

There's alternative footage in three scenes in order to cover up sexual implications/activities and a naked butt. This doesn't cause any difference in running time.
26:41

Alternative footage in the US version as Miss Blasmireinen lowers her head.
