Heart of lustness...
22 September 2007 | by xenatorresSee all my reviews

"Heart of Darkness" played more like a soft porno than an episode of "Xena". An episode all about hell spilling onto earth could have and should have been a lot more powerful if it had played with emotions besides just lust.

Though it's clear the actors were having fun and their performances are top notch as always, so much more could have been done with this episode if it had dealt more with, as the title would suggest, the heart of darkness; the episode should have been dark, not lustful. In fact, "Heart of Darkness" was a phrase used by the darkest villain of the "Xena" series – Alti – and in a series where your lead character (and her daughter who was also in the episode) was a murderous warlord, one would have expected the writers to have delivered something more along the lines of "The Price", but to a whole new level.

The costume designers also seemed to be enjoying themselves as well as sets and lighting. "Heart of Darkness" did have a very distinctive look to it, which fans expect to see on a series that constantly pushes the envelope of design.
