This is definitely one of the best "Hercules" episodes Be warned, if you take seriously this episode you won't enjoy it and this would be a huge shame So far I am really enjoying this short 6th season and this is the best episode yet after the even more excellent "Be Deviled" So in "Darkness Visible" Herc and Iolaus are invited in King Blad's castle (an old friend of them) to help him deal with vampires... This episode was a pure blast. I loved the vampire concept added in the show and it was handled excellently. The first scene is creepy and totally immerses you in the episode. The actor who played Vlad looked menancing and powerful enough. The makeup was good too, the vampires looked great. There are a ton of awesome scenes. The one where (SPOILERS) Iolaus is turning into a vampire was HILARIOUS (I bursted in laughs when he said to Herc "Herc I will die AGAIN!!!!"). The dialogue was really amusing with all the vampire puns. Yes the climax is stupid, but it is entertaining and awesome as hell!!! In any case (quoting Herc) take some time and watch this episode, it will not be in vein!!! Rating: 9.4/10
