In the world of the gladiator a man’s fame and glory constructs its own truth.
↳Blood and Sand / Legends
“And we always replay these Judas kisses between the two, and it’s always a question of who’s got the upper hand… And we keep it shifting back and forth.”
- Steven DeKnight, Revelations commentary
Ju-das Kiss [joo-duh s kis]
An act of betrayal, esp. one disguised as a gesture of friendship.
Television and the art of making women important to each other:
- Are you watching a show with two or more female leads with completely different personalities that are equally valid?
- Due to these different personalities, do they discuss their views on politics, society, religion, empowerment and whatnot?
- Is it a rare thing when an episode does NOT have a scene with just them?
- Is their relationship integral to the plot and the character arcs for both women?
- Is at least one of them in a sexual relationship with another woman? (Shut up, Gabrielle and Xena were!)
- Is there a female antagonist for a female protagonist?
If the answer to all of this is yes - congratulations! Chances are you’re watching a Sam Raimi/Robert Tapert tv-production.
