LEXX 20th Anniversary- 2016

Snips click to sources. Watch this page for updates.

7-25-15: This comes from a post at Lexxperience.

Lexx first aired in 1996.

A couple of the directors brought this up in a Facebook convo.

If you don't or can't pull up Facebook, here you go.

Repeat of the last snip. That's two main character actors on board now, as well.


If anything new comes up, I'll post it here and link it.


After Robert Sigl posted this (restricted to friends) on Facebook last week, Dieter Laser delightfully jumped in with a comment. Robert followed up with another  restricted convo but friends can see stills from K-Town featuring Dieter as Mantrid. I've gone ahead and tweeted the link Robert shared to an interview with Dieter on Lexxverse, and Dieter has retweeted. I'm crossing my fingers he'll be on board for the Lexx anniversary celebrations next year.

:edit: 8-10-15 Robert kindly reposted the K-Town pic set for public and added more from Giga Shadow featuring Malcolm McDowell (facebook, twitter). As noted in one of the convos, there are more pix, interviews, and forum available to public at lexxverse.com and a feature site at michael-mcmanus.com with loads of collections and deeper history on Michael (Kai).

:edit: 8-11-15 Not part of an update, but since I've been contacted by Lexx fans from all over the planet for over ten years now, I'd like to share part of a very recent private convo. It's important that the world knows we aren't just a bunch of silly fans. Quickie reviews here and there written in fly-by-night styles for scifi content internet magazines still calling it a smut in space show don't give the deeper concepts layered within Lexx proper credit. Lexx is one of the most advanced scifi shows of its time daring to portray social injustice and isolation on a scale that others fail to achieve, and I think the fans should be aware that the people who helped create and breathe life into Lexx are still proud of their work. This first about why I kept asking Robert to make one particular FB convo public-

And this about being real people in the Lexx fandom-

I don't speak for the Lexx fandom, but I know a number of others who feel the same way. Our love for Lexx is unquenchable, and we especially appreciate Rainer Matsutani and Robert Sigl themselves bringing the 20th anniversary up and other directors and actors jumping on board acknowledging it.

By the way, I've got Google Analytics on this site. This is from the last 30 days. I know there are industry people out there who like to know this kind of stuff. My host doesn't allow crap spam in, and I can verify in other trackers these come through referral links and searches directly related to Lexx.

Ok, enough of the warm fuzzies, BACK TO WORK!!! I'll post more updates as they come in.




Sorry, I'm a hashtag junkie, couldn't help it. Lexxverse.com has got a rocking Lexx 20th Anniversary page up on Facebook already filling up with tons of stuff from filming, including behind the scenes, artwork and schematics, sets and costuming, just an incredible walk through an amazing amount of Lexx memorabilia. I am delighted to see this happening, and I know an incredible amount of work is going into it.

I was a little slow finding that, kinda running circles irl. I'll keep looking around for MOAR and ALL THE THINGS, but if any of you out there feel like I'm missing your stuff, please tag me somewhere. I'm a terrible fan in real time.

  • Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment
    but after I clicked submit my comment didn't appear. Grrrr...

    well I'm not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

    • I've seen several comments from you that looked spammy, so apologies if you're not actually spamming me. I just renewed my premium on this blog, was unable to get to comments for a couple of weeks. I keep comments on pending so I won't get spammed. I haven't deleted any of your comments, so if one actually disappeared, sorry about that, ghost in the Xanga.

web stats

My first tracker was installed in 2004 and broke several times before moving to a new server, which lost a few months of stats, and then Xanga moved to new servers and I lost more stats for more months before the page came back up, so I've lost a total of about two years' worth of stats. The second was installed 2-22-14 and is considered very conservative by business owners who use analytics, which itself is very conservative, estimates being that roughly one third to one half of hits by real live people aren't even counted, most likely due to javascript discrepancies. Actual hits on several posts here are in the thousands now, and the Lexx Index in the ten thousands. I've got pingbacks turned off, so spam isn't counted at all within the Xanga internal tracker, and most direct post hits can be correlated to my real time linking activity on twitter and other social media. When I did Google Analytics beta testing I got to see how search engine performance compares to tracking. I believe live feed linking sources to various social medias are key to a future where search engines are more about performance than cataloging, which has been confirmed to me by coders who create bot algorithms as I was beta testing paper.li. I've fought hard through redundant age-old stacks to make my way to the google front lines again, so my Lexx work shows up faster on Chrome searches now. This has been a really interesting ride. At any rate, my point is, I can still go back 6 years on my original tracker and I can still see that in 2013 just before the last big blog server move, I was getting traffic like this (and since then, the tracker may have been abandoned, we can't tell). Click the thumbnail to see full size.

My original tracker also still lets me see the latest 500 visitors on a map. I once counted over 80 countries among the total visits. You guys are not alone. Click the map to see it better.

Besides Lexx, the most common search phrases that bring new visitors here are variations on 'huge spaceship'. The most seen post from a phrase search is How Big is the Lexx? My biggest Lexx referrer is Lexx Domain. Most of page views per person count comes from the Lexx tag on Tumblr. Visitors who stay the longest come through URLOpener and are pinged through the Google translator server in Mountain View, CA.
