  • US SciFi (TV-PG DSV)
  • US DVD
Release: Sep 07, 2012 - Author: HuZim MayXX - Translator: HuZim MayXX - more from this series
The third season (or series, depending on your region) of LEXX was the most sophisticated of all - because it was the only one. It's themes were life after death, good deeds vs. bad deeds and the motivation behind those. Even though most of it was only hinted during the early episodes, it was made more clear during the entire season/series.
As this was still a Canada-German co-production, the showing of bare breasts was not deemed bad and therefore we saw lots of them - especially in this episode. The US SciFi-Channel (now SyFy) decided to cut sexual activities and innuendos and censored the bare breasts in this episode, Boomtown, which was centered around sexual activities - and bare breasts. Yes, it's still the most sophisticated season.

The missing content in the SciFi-Channels version are
1 Voice-over
3 scenes - 14.5 seconds
7 scenes with "sexual activities or innuendos" - 139 seconds
the free view on bare breasts

Collectively 154 missing seconds (2 minutes and 34 seconds)

The aired version omits a longer voice-over by Fifi and a short view from the moths front, the underlined part is said during the omitted view.

Fifi: Yeah, I got news for you. We got more moths than you've ever seen before. And we're gonna hit you with more heat than you've ever felt before, pal!
