+ When I read Paramount+ was making a Flashdance reboot TV series, I was like, “Eh, I don’t know” — but then I read Angela Robinson will be helming it and I was like, “WELL YES OF COURSE!” Jennifer Beals will have to guest star, right? Angela Robinson directed so much The L Word. (One of our favorite running jokes about how straight people find Autostraddle is by Googling “What happened to that woman from Flashdance?”)
