<Rolf> What do you think of it?

<randee> funny

<DarkAgent> poor President and Bunny!

<Jinx> I liked the outfits you wore

<SadGeezer> not sure splarka

<Splarka> ’cause I checked the listings, all countries should premiere . next week…

<SadGeezer> I think ours is on thursday

<mayaxiong> Did you get involved with any of the chess games played for fun on the set with Michael and Nigel?

<Rolf> Yes we did some chess games in between the shooting but it was fun and in the same time really exhausting

<theFrey> so who was winning the Chess Games Rolf?

<Rolf> McManus is a really good chess player

<Rolf> and I haven’t done it for awhile.

<Doffy> Yes, I thought it looked like McManus really got into his chess

<Rolf> Yes you are right I think it was his idea anyway ga

<Rolf> I read that there have been a lot of people who disliked “Bad Carrots”…why????????

<mayaxiong> possibly the ‘anal’ content…my guess.. hehehe

<Doffy> I don’t know…I laughed my head off over Bad Carrot

<theFrey> they cut it a bit from the wrap party version Rolf

<Doffy> that was Bad Carrot, wasn’t it?

<dgrequeen> Americans have a problem with anal humor

<Identity> I thought that episode was hilarious

<mayaxiong> I thought it was a scream

<randee> me too:)))))))

<theFrey> much less rear Rolf view:)

<Rolf> Oh shit!!!! ga

<Jinx> I like butts

<dgrequeen> I laughed all the way through Bad Carrot

<angelmay> It was hilarious

<randee> so twisted a humour

<theFrey> perhaps the sound track was a bit much Rolf

<Doffy> the phone call seen was priceless!

<mayaxiong> ah!

<Doffy> scene, even

<Rolf> thank you

<mayaxiong> I was stunned that you could keep a straight face during the filming of that scene on the phone

<Doffy> I’d love to see the outtakes from that episode

<Rolf> I thought people might be embarrassed about the farting scene….. ga

<mayaxiong> I’d sell my grandmother for those outtakes

LEXX Interview: Paul Donovan is interviewed by theFrey

<Doffy> LOL

<dgrequeen> Lexxians weren’t… but then, we’re Lexxians

<dgrequeen> 😉

<dreams_of_kai> I was surprised I liked it better than my 12 year old!

<Doffy> takes a lot to gross us out 😉

<PrayrieWolf> The only part I liked was the way Kai killed the carrot.

<Rolf> As I said. a really tough scene especially for a foreigner

<Jinx> people like potty humor, they just don’t admit it!

<dgrequeen> Yes

<Rolf> so difficult words beneath the farting

<DarkAgent> Not the farting Rolf – the people that Bad Carrot didn’t agree with objected to the entire idea of the anal theme

<mayaxiong> you did a marvelous job

<theFrey> yes, you did

<Rolf> I see

<dgrequeen> Rolf, we will never look at carrots the same way again

<dgrequeen> 😉

<Doffy> LOL

<mayaxiong> I sure can’t

<Identity> Sci-Fi actually ran a disclaimer for

<DarkAgent> Everyone here applauds your ability to bring it off so well and seem completely natural in that ep

<Rolf> but What’s a disclaimer?

<Doffy> a warning

<dgrequeen> A warning to people who might be offended

<mayaxiong> a warning for the underage

<Rolf> I see

<mayaxiong> they show it pretty late in the evening here

<Splarka> “This program contains adult content and robot heads in love. Parental discretion is advised”

<mayaxiong> so it doesn’t hit “family hour”

<Rolf> I loved to play with the native people they were so nice actors

<Splarka> they did a similar for Twilight, probably the Lomia/Lyekka scene, might be especially for homosexual content

<dgrequeen> and yet, it has much less adult content that some other shows I’ve seen earlier in the evening

<dgrequeen> so we don’t really understand it

<Doffy> I’m glad they were good sports about it 😉

<Rolf> HAHAHA Really funny…hahahahah

<Splarka> ” Bend over, Kai”<— ahem;)

<Rolf> YEAH I loved that!

<fx> what for?

<Rolf> so funny

<Identity> lol

<Doffy> that was hysterical

<mayaxiong> yet no one was offended by Bunny and Xev kissing

<Rolf> it was

<dgrequeen> Yes, Kai was so clueless

<fx> exactly

<Identity> Stan said “yuck” lol

<Doffy> and stroking himself….I died

<Arania> was laughing through the whole episode

<mayaxiong> the mothbreeder dropping to his knees in front of Kai and him bending over to get a better look, priceless

<Rolf> lesbians seem to have a bit easier life than guys because heterosexual men like girls who make love………….mhhhhh

<dgrequeen> yes

<mayaxiong> apparently yes

<Doffy> seems like it

<Identity> Don’t know why that is

<Splarka> what, hetero women don’t like boy-boy scenes? *illusions shattered*

<Jinx> they want to be in the middle!

<Doffy> LOL!

<dgrequeen> LOL

<mayaxiong> every straight male’s fantasy

<theFrey> All right People!:)

<Rolf> yes

<theFrey> behave:)

<DarkAgent> I suspect hetero women enjoy that Splarka

<Arania> *innocent grin*

<dgrequeen> behaving

<Doffy> *ahem*

<mayaxiong> whistles…

<DarkAgent> well behaved or misbehaved? 😉

<Rolf> have we done something wrong??????????

<DarkAgent> you have done everything right!

<Rolf> thank you

<dgrequeen> *squeak*

<theFrey> Rolf, Vigdis can’t get in to chat, she said to say hello.

<Rolf> tell him kindest regards!!!!!

<dgrequeen> Rolf, did you get to know Patricia Zentilli well, and is she fun to work with?

<Rolf> Oh Patricia became my friend

<Rolf> which is wonderful ga

<Rolf> I said a few sentences in the interview about that question

<Doffy> that’s neat

<Jinx> I really enjoyed talking to both of you last summer

<Rolf> We liked to talk to you lovely people as well

<Rolf> It is always good to get a feed back from the audience

<theFrey> really? anything about upcoming stuff Paul is working on?

<Rolf> I like how he is thinking about the world

<Rolf> and about LEXX

<angelmay> Anything that you can share?

<Rolf> of course we didn’t agree in every point

<Rolf> There Is something that I know but I have to shut my mouth concerning that question ga

<Klaatu> is it agreed then that this type 13 planet is coming to the end of it’s life?

<theFrey> cruel Rolf!:)

<sueuk> ha!

<SadGeezer> not even a hint?

<mayaxiong> what did you do in Thailand for fun?

<dreams_of_kai> Did you enjoy the orient?

<Rolf> I was in Thailand before we went there for shooting and I did a lot of snorkeling

<Rolf> during the shooting we
