+ Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, which translates to “How I Felt When I Saw That Girl,” will be the first mainstream film in India to include a lesbian character. Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor will play the lead! Bonus: It’s also written and directed by a woman.

+ I wish I could get excited for PLL: The Perfectionists on account of a Mona/Ali spin-off would have been my wildest dream around about season four, but, well, you know. Anyway here’s a first look at Professor DiLaurentis. (Still no word on what happened to her wife Emily Fields and their two whole entire children.)

+ From Lauryn Hill to Cameron Post to Tara Westover, 2018 repeatedly asked the question, What does it mean to teach a person to surrender? A Year of Miseducation
+ I looked and looked and don’t see that we ever included this Tessa Thompson interview in a link roundup in December so I’m sharing it now because of the question, “Do potential goat comparisons ever cross your mind when you’re getting dressed?” (Answer: “I think I’m going to start doing it the other way around now—finding goat images and try to recreate myself looking like them.”)
