Les Vampires: Episode 6 – Hypnotic Eyes

Moreno, having already robbed the rival Vampire gang of "a fabulous fortune", seeks to continue milking this cash cow of professional losers. So when he learns his rivals are suspects in yet another murder with no stated payoff, he takes off hot on their trail - after giving his maid the goo-goo eyes, in case he needs a female weapon to fight Irma Vep or Mom. Meanwhile, The Man (alias Count Kerlor, alias Baron de Mortesalgues, alias The Grand Vampire, alias, Mr. Treps, alias The Great Seducer, alias the Count de Noirmoutier, alias Dr. Nox) continues doing what he does best - concocting aliases and colossal flops - while also spinning a seemingly pointless yarn (that provides one of the film's two films-within-film), as Irma Vep starts cross-dressing to prepare for her dominatrix role in sissy training for The Man. Will The Man manage to resist the urge to publicly French-kiss his "son"? Catch the next episode and see...

Les Vampires: Episode 7 – Satanas

Once Moreno discovers Irma Vep's cross-dressing, he starts fantasizing how he could doll her up to indulge his fetish for girls that look like boys trying to look like girls...and he's hooked. Meanwhile Irma Vep, yearning for earnings and sick of The Man's aliases filling up their business cards, has been scoping Moreno's dapper duds that remind her of John Steed and thinking they'd look even better on her, so she pretends to fall for his goo-goo-eyes trick so she can snatch his threads. But just as happily-ever-after seems on the horizon, the title character steps in and reminds everybody that the slaughter, famine, and disease of the First World War rages around them. Will that stop Irma Vep from stepping out of her Emma Peel and stepping into Moreno's pants? Catch the next episode and see...

Les Vampires: Episode 8 – The Thunder Master

Unlike the perpetual loser known by countless names, and unlike that double-crossing dandy 'Goo-Goo Eyes' Moreno, Santanas is supremely competent and dead serious in his work of murder and thieving. While the two bozos merely used Irma Vep as a henchman or lover, Santanas is a provider who actually delivers - steadily, soberly, sans bravado - looking after her welfare as well as the welfare of the gang. And his arrival has also brought more medium shots and close-ups, increasing the viewing engagement. Now that Irma Vep's finally got some help in carrying this otherwise dull and goofy flick, will it finally start to pick up? Catch the next episode and see...
