Salmoneus picks up Hercules to visit friend king Midas's realm's new gambling and pleasure palace. To their astonishment, the royal guards now terrorize the people, with draconian punishments for petty crimes. Worse, real power has shifted, as nearly all income, to the palace's manager Segallus, who plans to marry Midas's beloved Flaxen, and his even meaner business partner Hispides. Disapprobing Hercules is drawn in, forced to perform an unprecedented gauntlet to save the royal lives. Written by KGF Vissers

More than meets the eye
30 May 2016 | by rebelweaselSee all my reviews

I live in Las Vegas. I watch my neighbors blow half their paychecks and burn every evening for the free drinks, "comps" like free gifts of garbage stuff they hoard in their garages of stuff they don't need or want, and coupons for money off their cheap buffet foods.

This episode really points out the trickery of gambling. All the "free" stuff people that get sucked into it think they are getting. And I think despite the lampoon and campy tone of the show, it's an important message, and I wish more people got the point of this one... gambling casinos are a con job, if only people would realize it.

So yeah, some of the guest actors are pretty bad. Yes, the story is campy and a strange twist on the mythology of King Midas. But is has a really good moral message to it, if only people had paid attention.
