The 100 Season 5 Episode 9 Review: Sic Semper Tyrannis

The days when things were calm no longer exist, with even more chaos descending not only regarding plot but in terms of characters and their relationships as well.

"Sic Semper Tyrannis," written by Miranda Kwok, was a fast-paced episode that explored how far some relationships can get divided when peace is so close for the taking.

Choices are no longer given any time to be discussed. Instead, the execution becomes a ticking time bomb that chips away at even the most stable relationships on the show.

Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Ep. 1.05: “Shadow Games” – fight as one or die as two

Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Season 1: Episode 5 – “Shadow Games”

Written by Miranda Kwok

Originally aired February 19th, 2010

Money doesn’t matter to a real gladiator; being the best and being recognized for that are the greatest rewards one can be given. It’s what Crixus strives for, as well. Knowing Spartacus’ back-story, we might think that fighting for some higher purpose, whether that be love or another thing, could be more noble.

If the rather definitive conclusion of Spartacus: War of the Damned left you craving levels of sex and ultraviolence that no other premium cable series has been able to attain, Entertainment One may have you covered. The corporation has acquired format rights to the racy Finnish fantasy series Nymphs and is planning to make a U.S. version. On board for the task is none other than Spartacus: Blood and Sand scribe Miranda Kwok.

Originally titled Nymfit in Finland, the series is described by Deadline both as a “coming-of-age drama” and “a modern-day take on the ancient Greek myths about nymphs and satyrs.” Nymphs centers on a “beautiful, young, free-spirited woman who reaches her sexual maturity only to discover that she is a Nymph, a supernatural being that is being hunted and enslaved by a devastating race of Satyrs.” After learning her true identity, the woman decides to fight the
